Excellent quality reproduction jump wing ovals, worn behind the jump wings on dress uniforms, with different colour combinations representing difference Infantry Regiments. This insignia has been reproduced specifically for Hornbeam Militaria and was created using a couple of original, from which we have copied the size and most importantly the shape. Post War ovals were more like a race track, with top and bottom of the oval being parralel. Earlier WW2 examples were shaped more like a rugby or American football.
