Default Wings for ID Please

The crown on the first implies an official use.

The first wing is for a Royal Canadian Air Force Radio Navigator introduced in 1948. The second wing I would agree is for a pilot wing of the Singapore Air Force.

Nothing much to do with anything, but a variation on the Singaporean wing, worn as a helmet badge by UN Iroquois pilot "Tubby" in East Timor, 2003.
