Thanks Mike.

Yes it's one of my Australian wings.

I'm always on the look out for other examples that's why this thread raised my interest when I saw the pictures, but I believe the wing we've been discussing is a personal variation.

You may understand why I, for the time being, am happy with 15 these gap fillers.

400 looks a fair price for a 1945 Kangol para beret with provenance.
