Default Opinion on parachute wings

Hi all, just picked up this set of 5 wings that look like they could be real, but could also be fake. Assumed some could be other special forces colours? Any opinions?

Hi Steve,
Thought that might be the case, but it was the colours that got me, are they trying to emulate a particular type of odd badge?

Hi Ryan
They are trying to copy SAS wings , the early types had vivid pink and purple chutes, there are examples in the gallery section . The colour combinations though are pretty much fantasy.
Thread is to thick and fluffy , early SAS wings should have high silk content.
All the best
Steve
