Default PADDED PILOT WINGS.

Dear Forum,
These RAF padded wings puzzle me a bit. Original or reproduction ?
Thank you for your thoughts.
Dominique

The backing on the RAF pair looks like WW2 to me, but I can't speak for the RCAF ones, although they don't look original to me.

The Padded RAF ones are a fine example of Canadian Manufacture
