Default RAF or Far East wing?

Gentlemen,

I just got this in today. A pretty small para qualification wing, background fabric is dark blue. Not sure whether it's RAF or maybe a Far East wing? I'm happy to receive any comments.

How small is the badge compared to the standard version? It could be one that was worn on hat or beret.

The wings looks like a Belgium Para Wing.

Paul,

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. It is indeed Belgian; Air Force/Navy para wing for (formerly) parachute qualificatied personnel. Probably from the 60s or 70s.

Cheers

Bas

Anytime Bas, happy to help.

Have a look at my para wing albums for some photos of wartime locally made wings.
