I just bought these two GQ Parachutist Badges, and then I heard that these were also produced after the war. Would you consider these two as original WW2 issues?

These are the first I've ever seen, so I have no idea as to authenticity but they are very interesting examples of an unofficial but highly coveted badge!

I was lucky enough to meet a member of the 'Caterpillar Club' years ago, actually shot down on the first day of the first Indo-Pak War while flying with the Indian Air Force.  His pin eventually, through 'a man I met in a pub' got him a job with Freddy Laker!  Any details on the possible origins/owners of these two?
