    Default Para wings WW2 or later?

    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.

    It looks very similar a Para Wing worn by most Belgian Paratroopers.

    For certain, all para wings are a variation on a theme, though I assume the Belgian examples are different in the details.

    Here is a WW2 British example already in my collection.

    Similar or the same?

    I would expect repros to be similar to originals, though all the repros I have seen have the wing feathers running vertically or diagonally and not horizontally as is the case with the two examples I have shown.

    Thanks for your input Paul. If you can show some images of the type you mention, that would be really good?

    Hi Paul, these are not the wings Harlan's had made to the best of my memory? But I never bought any.

    Harlan is a mate of mine.

    Cheers, Ade.
