Not an expert, but they appear ok to me.

I believe these are of Post War manufacturing style.
I do like this pattern and have a couple but look similar in construction to post was SpecialAir Service titles I own.

Default Post WWII Parachute Regiment Strips

Comments most appreciated. Was reasonably certain going in they are righteous, just wanted to get corroboration from the experts. Had limited concern given the extent of stray threads on the back. For those who might be interested in more information, I've done a blog article on the subject; https://arnhemjim.blogspot.com/2021/...-regiment.html

a small bundle of these titles together with the early embroidered Paratroop Regiment ones and others appeared in the seventies in the NW of England, attributed to the stock of end of business military outfitters. sadly, I only bought one of each of them even though they were cheap. bugger !
they are not to be confused with the 1950 block letter type albeit the same colours.
this statement may not be suitable to people of a nervous disposition.

these titles appeared tied up with cotton around dozen (?) to an individual bundle. a mixture of paste and paper backed. the early full Parachute Regiment light blue on maroon felt differs from the 1950 block letter version.
