Default SAS Wings & Army Pilots Wing

Hi could I have confirmation on these SAS Wings for being Genuine or not, I believe to be good and with upturned Wings they are for Territorials? Appreciate your thoughts and would these be from 1980,s onwards?

The Army Wings I believe to be fine also and same era? would appreciate if real or not? Probably got this all wrong!

Many thanks Billy

Both SAS wings are good, the upper set 80/90's, the lower set 70's though might be a touch earlier imo

There's no difference. Both use the same wings. Just manufacturers variations.

Thanks Royal, was under the impression angled up one’s denoted 21, but how do you know that one is 1970,s (bottom one) and the top is 1980,s - 1990,s they look the same to me apart the bottom is coming apart!
Cheers Billy

Billy, you are correct, the bottom set looked more like the previous pattern with the irregular edge to the bottom of the chute, just an illusion caused by them being more worn and by me looking at the pics on my phone and not on my laptop.
