Yep, it belonged to Colonel James R. Cunningham. He was Director or Communications, AAF Headquarters, Washington, DC between 1942 and 1944.
Some folks believe this style embroidered badge was made in England; however, they were actually made in the U.S. This particular one was purchased by Colonel Cunningham at Luxenberg's location in Washington, DC. I've also got his Luxenberg "Second Pattern" badge in sterling silver but of the two... this is the one I've always favored.
Thanks Cliff - I wonder if you have a photo of the Colonel :think: :thumbsup:
