Special Air Service (SAS) Parachutist Wings

The Special Air Service (SAS) parachutist wings design in said to off been inspired by the ancient hieroglyph of  Ra, the Egyptian solar deity by Jock Lewes.

The light and dark blue colours were in the original hieroglyph but had an additional significance as Lewes had rowed for Oxford and another founder member of the unit, Lt. Langton, had rowed for Cambridge. The badge was worn at the top of the right arm by all qualified parachutists of the Regiment but on the left breast above any medals by anyone who had made an operational drop or participated in a conspicuous operation.
