Default Is this an Aux Women's Wing?

It is lusted as duch in Owen but is a lot smaller than a typical wing? I have never seen a picture of it in use. Didn't the women have the wing that was shaped like a regular cloth wing?

This wing was actually a cap badge. Have a look at the last article and photo here: http://saafww2pilots2.yolasite.com/s...d-insignia.php

Thanks for your replies. I wish Owen published addendums to his book! Now to look for a real wing!
