Default Royal Flying Corps wing opinions please

Hi Gents,
Would appreciate any opinions on this wing whether it's a good 'un or bad 'un.
Many Thanks in advance.
Colin

I think, just from the photographs, it is an original wing, but, not contemporary to the period that the Corps actually existed, I would think 1940's, you could simply buy them from your tailor.
