Ken Joyce Can I ask You a question?
I have my signed copy of "Out of the Maelstrom" (Outstanding Book!!) and I am trying to date a couple of Canadian Parachute Wings. Is it possible to E Mail you with a picture of them, and get your thoughts? I've done a cross reference to your chapter, but your opinion would be greatly appreciated.
Had a copy of "Out of the Clouds" sitting out at the time.

I wish I could have done more on the wings section. I think the big mistake was not including the wings worn in the 1960's. These wings tend to confuse people the most as they look identical to wartime wings. It is a difficult subject matter because there are so many variations of the same type of badge. I just covered the more common varieties.
Should be in your in box shortly.
