  1. These were awarded to the US pilots that graduated the pilot school at Foggia, Italy, in 1917 and 1918. I couldn't find much information about it, just this bronze medal for sale: https://www.flyingtigerantiques.com/ext-rare-wwi-bronze-medal-awarded-by-italian-gov-to-american-aviators-training-in-foggia-italy.html Does anybody knows if there were different classes? Mine is in silver. Thanks!
  2. I can't find any info on this. What is it? Probably not military.
  3. I managed to find some more info: This guy was Commander, Company A 5th Battalion, 20th Special Forces Group, Dec 1975 – Jan 1978 https://www.linkedin.com/in/williambache/Maybe he can tell you more about the unit. Anyway, great guidon! Did you get the other one?
  4. Here is an Air Force guidon from my collection, 4510th Combat Crew Training Wing, Luke Air Force Base. The unit had this designation from 1958 to 1969. They used F-100 Super Sabre for training.
  5. This was for sale on eBay, I didn't get it. What is it exactly? It should be 20th SFG, but as far as I know there was never a 5th Battalion. The seller didn't post a picture with the sleeve tag but said it was "Guidon Special Forces, Special Forces Group, Contract #9234, 8345-918-0649, DSA -DPSC- Dir of MFG"
  6. Here are some close up pictures of the embroidery. Amazing work, the flag is embroidered on both sides, on a single sheet of material. Not all flags are returned, 2nd Engineer Battalion burn their flag...
  7. Any opinions? I'm not a uniform collector and I don't really know what I have. Thank you!
  8. Hello! I have these two uniforms belonging to COL Gerald G. Chikalla. I found some info about him: In 1955 he graduated from West Point. He was an active in the U.S. Army from 1949-1985, including 4 tours in Vietnam (as an Advisor to the VN. Rangers in 1963, with the 1st ID 66-67 and with a special Sector/Area Advisor Program), 1 tour in Korea, & 2 tours in Germany. He attended the British Imperial Defense College in 1976. Another information I found is this: Which Infantry battalion did Col Chikalla commanded? What do you think about these uniforms?
