Just got this in the mail.

 

Nice little grouping with a Warrant officer's hat badge, Observer wing and 2 pilots wings.

 

The Obsrvr wing is marked sterling. One of the pilots wings has the "Gus Fox Co." marking on the back. The last wing ha no markings. I haven't done the scratch test to see if the pilots wings are sterling as I don't have a kit. 

 

Are the Gus Fox wing fairly uncommon? 

 

Was told they were his grandfather's, with the sender's last name of Clatterbough. I asked for his name, but didn't get it. Could Clatterbough be pilots possible last name? Any help would be appreciated.

Could the last name be Clatterbaugh? 

 

Several of them served in the military...no Air Force guys that I've found, but plenty of Army...
