Para wings WW2 or later?

Article about: I think this is the WW2 pattern, but always good to get others opinions. I can't show the reverse as they are sewn on a BD. Thanks.

    Thanks Paul for posting images of the wings you mentioned. IMO, they are not very similar, with many differences, the edge of the upper wings, the size of the basket, the weave of the thread, the way the wings merge together, the backing fabric etc...

    good to see them all the same, as all knowledge is useful

    Oh well, I posted a pic on the Brit mil badge forum and the first responder said they were good, but since then two others have id'd them as the latest copies from Pegasus militaria

    It's good that I did not pay a lot for the BD they are on and it probably means all the insignia has been added to it fairly recently.

    Hi Jerry, I know Steve Kiddle and this is his first generation wing aged a bit.

    They sell for 12.

    Cheers, Ade.
