So far I can observe positive traits .
Looks like good silk content.
Rigging lines into a central strand, may have been more.
Directional stitching
Good over all colouring.
Zig zag trident to canopy.

Best wishes
Steve

Hi Steve,
It's on a BD which has been offered to me. So far I only have this pic but I'll have a look in a few days.

It depends on how much the seller is asking. If it's expensive I would want good provenance as it does deviate from the classic WW2 pink wing although construction looks similar.

I believe it is better to stick to the known patterns and their relevant colours when collecting SAS wings.

Looks good but as said above depends on the price.
Can you share other photos of any other insignia on the BD

Pegasus looks like early Belgian made....but again, the wing isn't the one the Belgians used.

I didnít like the wing, but the Peggy confirms terrible fakes. Donít touch it with a barge pole.

It's worse than this one (and this isn't pretty).
