Then, there's the weird. I mean, really weird. Badge is self-explanatory, and there *were* some Canadians shipped over in '73. Maybe this was a vanity item from that interraction.

Now, this I *know* to be authentic. "Ranger Brand." The jacket has donut buttons in some places, and black blastic elsewhere:
Trousers have mostly black-plastic buttons, and have the tag on the outside. "Commando!"
