can you post a close-up of the Naval Aviator wings with non-reg EGA attached? I've heard of these but never seen any!

Hi John,

Great wings! It is really a treat to see wings in their original packaging. Good stuff my friend! Thanks to all for sharing their goodies.

Very nice sets you have there - I must say I like those bullion wings! I am not sure what it is but the bullion just seems so nice...

I've got to cry foul on this one Flying Tiger. Those ribbons are undoubtedly added to the uniform and are pure fantasy.

Let's see- WWII Bombardeer wing with an Army Achievement medal? AND a "2" instead of the proper olc? Plus the Army Service ribbon and an overseas service ribbon (couldn't have earned them until the 1980's) and the USAF Longevity ribbon which would have required the wearer to be in a USAF blue uniform with USAF bombardeer wings.

Also, the Army Good Conduct with that many knots would have made him a senior NCO by the time he had earned that many, and thus would not have made him a candidate for going to school as a bombardeer.

 

The randomness of the ribbons and the fact that they are brand new manufacture just screams that it is a fantasy.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I am bored prefixing everything I say with "I think" or "in my opinion".
Everything I say is my opinion; the only thing of which I am certain is that there is very little of which one can be certain.

No maker Paul, just marked sterling.

 

Is there a problem with it?
