Default Para wings - Era?

Dear all,

Would you please be able to help me regarding those wings found some years ago? Are they ok for a WW2 display? And genuine...?





Thanks in advance.

I think these are the first pattern of Aussie made wings pal. The Aussies used ours for years. I may be wrong but Iíve a similar pair and have always maintained that belief since someone corrected me.
No doubt a more Aussie wings specialist will correct me mate.

I'd agree with Jon, the brown felt backing looks like the Post War Australian Para Wings.
