    Default Unknown Para wings

    Good morning Gents I have spent the better part of three hours this morning looking at different variations of Airborne and Para wings .
    I have been trying to match this set of wings to its country of service but I am having no luck.
    They look to be a variation of a set of British Para wings but the three Jewel crown has me a little
    Any one have any thoughts !!

    Regards Mark K

    Pretty sure I found the same thread as him^^ I'm up to page 40, several google pages, and 20 ebay pages. Here is the thread:

    World Airborne Wings - Page 40

    If you want to keep looking. I can tell you they are not on the first 40 pages. There are a lot of similar Wing shapes, but none with crowns even closely resembling yours.

    They are not just made up ones??????????????... They do look very British mind...but not with crown ...not unless the Queen has downgraded her crown to a Mac Donalds party hat lol.. Cheers Terry.

    Thanks for the effort Cadillac I found this thread early this morning and went through every post .
    I do find them an unusual set of wings and there are no provisions on the back for a slider and or lugs to be attached to any kind of head dress just the two points that have been set in the end of the wings IMO it is supposed to be sewn on to be attached either as breast wings or a cap

    The nearest i have come to them was a set of English wings that were used by the French but removed the crown and left them without, i'm thinking that someone has added the flower emblem to yours, whats the reverse look like
