Default Airborne Strip

Good day all,

Have searched the forum on this and not feeling confident. However, could those in the know tell me if this strip is genuine war issue or a repro?

Thank you.

Ian

I remember, as a child, there used to be a shop in Chester that sold those!

I always say to people, if it was actually being sold as original, just demand your money back, if however, you bought it from someone who was simply selling it as seen, for pennies, then it really does not matter.
