    Para Denison smock/wings help

    Recommended Posts


    I acquired this, what appears to be a WW 2 Dennison 2nd Pattern Paratrooper Smock. 
    it seems to be altered with button loops added in the collar. Or from other research, it may be a Royal Marine Alteration design. 
    my interest is the painted/screened/drawn Jump Wings on the right breast. Has anyone ever seen this? Or have information or ideas of its possible origin, or any units that may have used this?

    From research, I have seen Indian Para units placed their Para wings on their right breast. Any info? Thoughts?

    My information is that these Denisons were supplied to the Belgians at the end of WWII and used loops and buttons because zips weren’t available or too expensive. The Belgians wore the British pattern para wings during WWII and post war moved them to over the right breast, so this Denison could have a Belgian connection.
