Brit. made gunner's wing by Gwendyr with separately added edging to signify lead crew status and unusual prongs for attachment to the uniform. For some time it has been claimed that Gwyndyr were a Welsh company, however I have found some information that suggests they were in fact likely from Southern England. This wing is un-attributed, but nevertheless it's one of my favorites.

Brit. made pilot's wing on the coat of Lt. E. C. Berg who was in the 8th Air Force, Unfortunately attempts to research Berg have so far been unsuccessful.

Bombardier's wing on the coat of 1st Lt. G. A. Curry of the 12th Air Force. When I posted these before it was suggested they maybe Italian made.

Stunning craftsmanship. I'm getting a taste for bullion wings! These were posted previously but they fit well here.
