    Point of interest; as told to me by a Dutch colleague.

    The reason you will have got the cloth ones is because only the cloth ones are official issue.

    The KCT unofficially wear a [nice] matt silver metal wing, it is not the enamel metal wing that you see on ebay. I was told the enamel wing is for wear in civvies and by civilian jumpers.

    The unofficial metal wing that the KCT wear is 8cm across. There is/was also a 7cm version attached for presentation to a red plastic card with a dutch flag on it. This smaller 7cm version is presented to people who jump with them on Arnhem Day, in my experience.
