Default Help with British Parachute Qualification Wings

Gentlemen.

I wonder if anyone can confirm for me which of these wings are wartime and which may not be?

2 & 5 have the modern style felt Backgound from what I can see.
Unusual on 5 as it looks like a Hand made one but maybe not impossible.
On 2 you still can see the glue traces from the missing Backing.

I believe these are all wartime with the exception of #3.

#2 is early war made and often called spilt feather pattern. It has a dope wash to the rear and was not made with a backing.
