This is a group of insignias and a medal bar that came as payment for a lawn mowing job when I was a kid. Over 40 years ago, I had just finished mowing a neighbor's lawn when he pulled out a small cigar box and showed these pieces to me and asked if I had any interest in them. Even though they weren't US militaria, I thought they were cool and I agreed to accept the box as payment for the work I had done.
There were no names or anything associated with the medals or the insignia, just the photo, the medals, the wings and a few misc. pieces of insignia. We can see from the bar that the soldier was Canadian and that he served in Italy and France and or Germany. He was also mentioned in dispatches and was awarded a US Bronze Star medal. The Bronze Star is not named. Interestingly, there are some very interesting vintage Canadian parachute brevets as well as a US parachute badge. I believe all of the Canadian para wings are post WWII, but appear to be immediate post WWII vintage.
I can't imagine that there were that many Canadians that were awarded US Bronze Stars. Is it possible that the soldier was a WWII Canadian para who went to the FSSF? If only the pieces could talk.
