Default Parachute sweetheart

Hello all,

I have a question regarding a particular model of silver and enamel parachute sweetheart.

Some sources present it as wartime while others say it is more likely to be just post-war.

I believe it might appear on a 1941 dated photograph. Do you have any information about this model of badge and do you think it could be possible to see it in 41?

Cheers,

Pierre
