Alex is right on the money. Nice wings and all original. The titles are nice too. The British made half wings are not as common. Good find.

Default AG Wings

I suggest the middle AG wing is Canadian made Replacement type - melton is black rather than RAAF blue and the white "feathers" are in fact shorter than Australian made wings of the period.
