Small Garage Sale Find


Recommended Posts

Of course I asked who it belonged to and if there was anything else. She said it was her great uncles and all she had was a box of old toys of his from the 30's.

 

I asked if I could take a look. I don't know much about this stuff but just thought it was cool for 5 bucks each.

The tab is excellent and a good deal as well. The toys were a downright steal...the green toy truck looks like an arcade, the green and red stake side looks like a wyandotte and some other interesting pieces. The cap guns are excellent! I would have been more than happy to pick those up! ABN

Eric,

 

I suspect the arc is for "Air Communications Service". It was apparently a short lived post WWII service with the designation lasting less than a year in 1946.

 

There is also an arc that exists for "Army Airways Communications Service", AACS, which had a longer duration.

AFCA Lineage The Army Airways Communications System was first organized on 15 Nov 1938, in the Directorate of Communications of the U.S. Army Air Corps. On 13 Apr 1943, the official lineage of the Army Airways Communications System as a separate organization began with the constitution of the Army Airways Communications System Wing. The Wing was activated as part of the Flight Control Command on 26 Apr 1943. On 14 Jul 1943, the Wing was reassigned directly to the Army Air Forces. It was redesignated the Army Airways Communications Service, the Wing designator was dropped, on 26 Apr 1944. On 13 Mar 1946, the Army Airways Communications Service was redesignated the Air Communications Service and reassigned to the Air Transport Command. The Air Communications Service was redesignated the Airways and Air Communications Service 11 Sep 1946. Airways and Air Communications Service was reassigned to the Military Air Transport Service 1 Jun 1948.

Thanks a lot, Gil. I think you nailed it. As you said they (this designation) did not last long (only 7 months). In such a short duration I wonder if a US made patch was ever contracted. Perhaps the only examples of these are foreign made.
