Shoulder pads... Original??!
Posted 19 January 2007 - 02:30 PM
I dont trust the text "pad, arm, wool, paratrooper"...
My question: Are these original and are these (stupid) markings original?

Shoulder Pads wer a general issue item and not for paratroops only!

Yes, the stamps are utter nonsense Can the pads still be original WW2 produtcion?
Standard issue for heavy weapon teams

Hi Luke and everyone else, I have attached a photo with exactly the same stamping on it but on a totally different item, you can then see that this has been faked up ( that's with an A, not a U ) as well.
Whoever has the stamp is not bright enough to see that you can't stamp two different items with the same designation stamp. Perhaps he might start putting it on Jump boots and such as it has the word ' Paratroop' in it's title, and he would like people to know Jump boots are a paratroop item ??.

I had a pair with those markings also and while the pads are original the stamp is pure "fantasy".

Hi Bryan, I took another look at the shoulder pads you posted and then realised that the U.S. is faked as well, didn't think about that first time around, Cheers ( Lewis )
Yep, the "US" is a faker too.

Those harnesses really hurt sometimes and we would have to wear them for hours.
