#VN019 1st LT BTY (PARA)
The First Light Battery Parachute was a very small and short lived unit created to provide direct artillery support for the parachute companies/battalions of the PPCLI, R22R, RCR that made up the Mobile Striking Force (1948-1955). The shoulder loop was authorized in 1951 and samples were submitted to the government the following year. Many members of the unit fought in Korea with the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery. Due to the short duration of wear for this title, it is a very scarce badge to find on the loose. $75

#SB7 Vietnam 'Graffiti' M1 Helmet - An Khê 1970
Vietnam 'Graffiti' M1 helmet.  The graffiti include reference to the famous region of An Khê in Vietnam during 1970 with tour dates, other script including 'Soul Power' (Popular slogan with black soldiers) and 'No Bic' (Perhaps because he had to use a felt tipped marker and not a pen).   I have made no attempt to take this apart, it is undisturbed and I have not even touched the helmet band which like the cover has really snugged down over time.  The interior of the helmet is salty, and it's likely a rodent did a bit of chewing on some liner components.  It has become increasingly difficult to acquire an original untouched Vietnam helmet with period writing on the cover. This iconic helmet would look great in any helmet collection. *Sold*
