I would suggest that the large wings were used on the 1930s Full Dress and the smaller version for Mess Dress

G'day BC

The answer is yes, we have a set of bullion wings on a WW2 pilots uniform and we know whos uniform it was, at the Running Rabbits Museum at the Upwey / Belgrave RSL. I think that the uniform is in storage at the moment and will have to get it out to photo it, it is a really good looking item.

Regards

Phil.

Hi BC,

Sorry for being slow on this one but have had a couple of very busy Thursdays, I had to go to a big funeral last week, however Ive got the uniform out today and have done photos and will email them to you on Friday or over the weekend.

Hope you like them.

Regards

Phil.
