Default RN Commando insignia question?

Hi all, can anyone give a definitive answer to the following?

Prior to the introduction of the commando dagger on a tombstone badge, qualified RN Commando's wore a Commando shoulder title, I believe in White on navy blue? Would this title have been worn on No 2 rig with red on blue badges?

Additionally, Parachute trained ratings would have worn the basic para wing on the cuff, on the opposite cuff to the tombstone dagger, what colour wings would they have been? I've seen red on blue examples, but believe these were worn by Royal Marines before the introduction of Lovat dress, I can't see they would have been the standard khaki background issue type or the gold bullion variety, so anyone know what they would have looked like?
