    Hi Chris,
    Your wing was issued approx 1980 - 1990's.

    I figured they were new issue , while kinda new . I got them in the 80's . And didn't think they were good at the time , but I'm glad they turned out good . Thanks for the information .
    Cheers Chris

    According to the man in the know on the Brit badge forum they are the type issued from the early 70's onward, perhaps even late 60's, but 70's issue is typical for this type though I am not sure when they go out of use, as the more modern version is very similar, but continuation into the 80's and perhaps 90's is likely.

    They appear to be the same as this pair from my collection.

    I will have a look tonight after work on the computer I believe my set is a little different if so I will post them up for comparison.
