Default Opinion on Wings

I have had these 3 wings set off to the side for a while. The Observer looks pretty good to me, the AG looks possible but the Pilot am not sure. Would be interested in hearing thoughts on any of these wings? Would they be considered period made for WW2.

thanks
Jack

Default RAF wings

Irish, as nobody has ventured his opinion, l will say that wing front looks good but l donít like the back although l wonít go so far as to say it is wrong!
The observer wing looks good, but brevets are a nightmare to date , modern copies look very similar to ww2 versions, sorry l cannot be more helpful.
Regards Pete

The Pilots brevet is okay, I don't like the reverse of the Observer brevet, but, I believe it to be original, the AG brevet, is, in my opinion, completely spurious.
