    Default Advice needed pls

    Hi all.

    Forgot I had these. I wanted to collect militaria when I was a kid, (before discovering beer, girls and guitars!)
    and must have picked these up at the old Warnham War Museum fairs in Sussex in the '80s. (Anyone remember those?)

    My question is:- Is there a safe way to clean them up a bit or is it too risky? They are a little delicate.

    I also believe there are several patterns of the jump wings. Which one would these be?

    Cheers,

    Brian.
