PARACHUTE REGIMENT WW2 PLASTIC CAP BADGE
A scarce silver plastic headdress badge to the Parachute Regiment, being a pair of wings, the pinions straight and horizontal, on which an open parachute surmounted by a Royal Crest with an Imperial (King’s) crown. With a pair of blades to reverse. good conditon [see photos]

Plastic cap badges were first introduced into the British Army during 1941 as a result of metal shortages caused by the prioritised demands of industrialised war production. The wearing of plastic badges proved very unpopular with British Army personnel. The symbolism of the badge is that the wings denote airborne generally, and the parachute denote the specific role of the Regiment. The Parachute Regiment was formed in August 1942 from the individual Parachute Battalions within the Army Air Corps (formed February 1942). The winged parachute headdress badge was adopted in May 1943 and was from that time worn in place of the AAC badge.
