    Hi Nick,

    Based on the quantity of wings, and how they have been modified, I would guess that someone was putting together a representative group of wings for a display. This does not strike me in any way as being from a soldier.


    Cheers
    Gary

    Nick I have two WWII paratrooper wings . The top one is late war unmarked and lower one is British made. Yes I cleaned the British wings. The ribbon is also British made with arrow. Your wings are nice but not WWII. Gary

    Nick, great collection of wings, thanks for sharing with everyone. Where does your quote "For a soldier's honour" come from? Cheers
