WWI-WWII US NAVAL AVIATOR ID BOOKS and CERTIFICATES - 1917-1944

Recommended Posts

The engraving style on this one is the latest official style from the 1946-47 time period and they bring less than the earlier versions especially the 10 line DFC engraving styles. They seem to even bring less than the earlier fancy engraved Navy AMs.

 

They are scarce, but are not as "pretty" as the earlier ones. You are fortunate to have an example regardless of how it is engraved.

 

Your next mission is to find his AM and PH.

Bringing this back up with a new ID

Hmmmm, I am intrigued by the fact that the ID card issued after he completed the course refers to him as an. . .

 

Aircraft Intercept Radar Operator

 

If anything, it is interesting to say the least. . . if you get what I mean.

Hi Cliff,

 

I missed those! I also have his Flight Logbook.

 

I have noticed that the radar IDs I have seen, seem to be from July 1945 or later.

Here is one I just acquired to an unfortunate Aviator who was killed in an accident in 1943. He was on a training flight off of the USS Nassau when he crashed his plane on San Clemente Island on April 22,1943. He died in a hospital the next day.

Just picked this one up.

Missing the photo side of the ID, but Corpus Christi Aviators are tough to find.

I also managed to find his photo with his graduating class in one of my copies

of the Slipstream (Mark V).

Here is my newest ID book I acquired at the SOS. He was a 1933 graduate of the USNA who earned his wings in 1937. During WWII he commanded VB-11 for a brief period of time and later the Commander of SBD's based on Guadalcanal in 1942-43.

 

The wing is a beautiful example of 1930's bullion work.

Another nice addition Kurt! You've got to love that bullion Aviator wing! I enjoy seeing this thread resurface every few months with freshly found treasures added. I was kicking around pinning this thread, but fear it may get lost in plain view. Thanks for your efforts!

Very nice addition.

Aviator id's seem to be increasingly difficult to find.

Ensign Samuel D. Coulter, USNR, entered active military service with the Navy in 1942. He became a qualified pilot on 14 November 1944, and received his instrument ticket on that same date. He was killed in a crash two mies at sea off Sanford, FL. His grouping consists of a Portrait photo, small duplicate photo as shown, his dog tags, his wallet with cards, and his Aviator Certificate.

Admiral John S. McCain commanded the entire aviation elements in the Pacific and the West Coast. When he achieved flag rank, he was permitted to continue to fly, but with the requirement that he has a co-pilot. His grouping is very massive to include his medals, commendations, orders, photos, etc.
