    These are Thailand paratrooper wings, why ns meyer made them I am not sure they produced insignia for all types of countries. Also in Vietnam I believe is soldiers could wear these wings if they earned them which would make some sense then

    They are Thai made para wings for the the Thai Army. Just the clutch mounting / suspension device was made by Meyer and added later by the wearer. Likely to facilitate getting the wing on and off of the uniform easier. The bar actually looks like one for ribbon mounting
