Default New British Insignia

Hello,

I just recently got these guys and was wondering if they are any good. They look good to me based on a small amount of research but i dont pretend to know too much about British items.

1. British Para Wings
2. British Para Wings India Pattern
3. British PJI
4. Ghana PJI ????

Regards,
Chris G.

Second one is a wartime Indian made wing, very collectable!


Marc and Nico are correct about #1 and #4.

No.3 was authorised by Air Ministry Order A1079 in 1945, so most likely 1950's or 60's by the padded Backing.
