Need help with glider wings

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

I'm in need of a little help with these glider wing, to see if it is genuine. They were really gray with a little work with a shirt they are shining up.

Thanks Gang

These look like a nice example of late/post war glider wings, although I would stop "shining them up" as that ( in my opinion) lessens their appeal!

I am bored prefixing everything I say with "I think" or "in my opinion".
Everything I say is my opinion; the only thing of which I am certain is that there is very little of which one can be certain.

Paul is correct, those are classic "issue" or "graduation" style glider pilot wings from WWII. Not uncommon, but still very nice.
