Your 511th oval is from the 1950's. WWII versions of this oval are embroidered on felt (unless you've got a Japanese Occupation made one in which case it will either be fully embroidered by hand or embroidered on silk).

Thank you Allan. I was unsure if it was ww2 period or not I figured most post war ovals had the wider boarders so this one threw me for a bit of a loop.

I thought I might post an updated photo of my WWII era jump wings. I have removed the marine examples and the glider badges as there were just too many of them to cram into the jeweler's case. Nearly eight years ago (has the forum been around that long?!?!) I posted my collection in response number 74 in this thread. Time sure flies!

Nice! :o


High Flight

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silver wings;

Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth

Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there

I've chased the shouting wind along and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air.

Up, up the long delirious, burning blue

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,

where never lark, or even eagle flew;

and while, with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

 

John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

June 9, 1922 – December 11, 1941

Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world.Unreasonable

people attempt to adapt the world to themselves.All progress,

therefore, depends on unreasonable people.

It must be worn on the left side. The end should be in the breast pocket.

Some amazing wings and oval set being shown! Thanks to all who shared!

 

Here is my only contribution, both from the same vet. Sterling marked jump wings on oval for 101st Hq Co.
