Hello Steve, I am Iván, and I have belonged to the Spanish paratroopers brigade for many years, I know this uniform well from veterans, because I have an original one and for those who have the unit in the barracks museum, none of these In this uniform emblems were used indicating both the paratrooper's arm and wings, these are much later, the injected plastic technology was relatively modern, and these uniforms were discontinued much earlier in te unit, the color image of a soldier with these is due to the photos for the family that were taken in the barracks by a photographer who left them this garment just for the photo, with total security someone then put these emblems on the jacket later.
This may not be the appropriate post but I have my doubts about the seal that appears inside the garment, the seal of the unit with the "MANDO" logo does not make sense, and less in a garment since it represents the command of the unit and not the wardrobe group, This seal is put on important documents, orders etc, not on a garment I have already seen this stamp in other garments and it is always the same, more times in size and even of ROGER DE LAURIA, never of other units of the brigade, I can be wrong but I think it is not authentic.
Originally this uniform did not carry any type of emblem, later only the paratrooper wings were added that were sewn, these were in color, cut out with the wings silk-screened and protected by plastic, the emblem of the unit was also added in both shoulders. which was a rectangle of the color of the battalion with the shield in the center, this was also sewn to the jacket, it is not difficult to get the original vintage wings that go on the right side, the shoulder emblems are extremely difficult to get original , but you can make a copy, other units used this type of jacket longer than the paratroopers and had rectangular wings made of injected plastic, the legion, green berets and the air paratroopers are used, in more than 38 years of service I have not seen a uniform of the type M59, M61 M62 or M76 of bripac with these emblems, I attach some image.
