Default Para Shoulder Titles - Variant?

I'd like to have opinions on these Para titles. Could it be a variant locally produced in theatre or is it entirely spurious?

They're original and hard to come by. There is also a "paratroop regiment" shoulder title in the same style.

There was another thread on these some time ago, I've never liked them!

Thanks guys. I appreciate your replies.
I believe it was another variant that one could privately purchase.
I searched into the other threads and couldn't find the one you mentioned, Frank.
Cheers
Pierre

cannot imagine the level of sophistication being present in the seventies to fake these.
