Photo of cloth jump wings(c) Mark Bando

I stand corrected on a note about cloth jump wings in my jump wings article.

Pierre-Antoine Vlimant rightly pointed out to me that the practice of wearing cloth jump wings was already discussed by Mark Bando here. These did indeed started to appear during the war on both khaki and OD7 cloth and continued to be used afterwards. In fact, paratroopers can be seen wearing them in photos of Operation Dragoon.

Please keep any corrections or addition coming to make the article more complete!
