SAS Qualification Wing

WW2, Special Air Service Qualification Wing.

Originally designed by Jock Lewes, from Eygptian heiroglyphic symbols for the solar deity.

This hand embroidered silk thread wing is on a wool backing.
Covered on the reverse side with a coarse cotton cloth which has a slight padding inside.

Probably late wartime issue.

In a good condition with some wear and clear signs of removal from a tunic.
