Hi:  A friend of mine recently contacted me asking for some assistance in ID'ing a German Luftwaffe eagle which was in a group from a girlfriend's Dad. Her Dad passed but he was in the B-17 "Stormy Weather" and it ended up being shot down & he was a POW.  Per  the daughter's story...all the insignia was taken from airmen who were captured but the Air Gunner badge was hidden.

 

When I researched the "Stormy Weather" tail#...I found three (3) tail#s

 

As far as the group...it's not for sale and I only have the photo from the front not the back.  POW wings, Air Gunner wings & Luft Visor Cap eagle

 

Just wanted to share
