    It is the accepted WW2 style wing. The light blue stitching which forms the actual wings themselves, is horizontal. Post war wings have this stitching set at an angle.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Its a bit late I know to add to, the but this wing is a 100% DDay issue wing They were issued to the 12th (Yorkshire) Battalion The Parachute Regiment at the end of May 1944. I have about a half dozen and all differing coloured stitching to the rear.

    Best wishes.
