ARMY PARATROOPERS BADGE
Instituted on 1st September 1937
The Army Paratroopers badge only had a service life of approx two years making it one of the rarest Army badges you can acquire. The Army Troops who were qualified were allowed though, to wear their Army paratroopers award if they were tranfered to the Luftwaffe and continued to be Paratroopers. So far we have only encountered Original badges to be made from "Bunt metal" (Mixed metal alloy of zinc,brass,etc ) and Aluminium.

There has been much dedate in the early part of 2001, as to wheather these badges exsisted. But research has shown that infact both marked and un marked Juncker badges do exist, For a full blow by blow account please take the time to read the following Juncker Para badge

(N823) An Army Para Badge by the firm of C E Juncker, although the badge is unmarked. The badge has the usual features associated with this maker. Being constructed of zinc, the badge is a 1943 re-issue and matches all known textbook examples, with a few of its well known flaws. The badge retains much of its original finish. It comes with a little history, I was told when I purchased the badge that it was picked up by a member of the Royal Armoured Car Regiment who swapped it for chocolates with German civilians at the side of the road. Very scarce to find.

SORRY I AM SOLD BUT LEFT FOR REFERENCE
