Default Royal Green Jackets 2n Bn or Kings Royal Rifle Corp

I received coloured cloth Parachute wings and after going thru the forum , wiki and Oliver Locks Airborne book, I'm confused and dont know the history of there uses and or if they are legit or still worn today.
I used Alain Conradi's thread as a starter.

I will start a thread for each one:

2 Bn Royal Green Jackets or KRRC?

Oliver Locks book has a document outlining coloured wings only has pg2 and no date of issue.

2nd Green Jackets special Badge Black on Scarlet although mine looks Gunmetal Grey not a solid Black.

This also has an adhesive film on the back , could this be current issue or a replica.

How is this awarded, is it based on individual within the Regt or the Regt as a whole?

When would this wing have been issued/used?

What dress uniform would this have been used.
