Default ORANGE wings

Please can anyone help identify these wings?

They are stamped from brass or gilding metal, and the vertical lettering down the centre reads 'ORANGE', and was once enamelled green. The brooch fitting is at fault.

Thanks, Stephen.

Thanks for replies, even the one putting the boot in!

One day no doubt the answer will crop up somewhere.
