Default Good Rhodesian SAS wings?

Hello all,

Would a few of you more knowledgable fellows be able to comment on whether these are original Rhodesian SAS wings and not modern or post Rhodesian repros? I have compared them to known examples I have found on the forum but I would just like to make certain before I make any attempt to get them.

Thanks!

Looks to be a genuine Rhodesian wing for combat dress. Green denim type front, proper zigzag edge stitching and correct dark grey gauze with lines of dimples on the back.
Totally different to the nasty British made on dark green felt with the wrong number of feathers on the wings.
I'd buy it (if I didnt already have a few).

Thank you all for your input, was not quite sure as the parachute seemed a bit smaller than other examples and the wings looked a bit off.
