WW2 USAAF Crest to identify

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

A friend try to complete a jacket named from an USAAF Soldier.

He search to be sure about the crest on the cap.

 

The soldier look to be at 101st bombardment / photographic Squadron or 39th Observation Squadron but we are not shure that the crest is really linked to theses units.

 

Did you know this crest ?

 

Thanks !

 

Fabien

That appears to be the DI for the 26th Observation Group which was later redesignated the 26th Reconnaissance Group.

Hi Fabien,

 

Dave's DUI ID is correct, as per Massaro. If you have information/documents to make you think the airman in the pic has a link to another unit, then that info may pre- or post-date the photo.

 

Regards

Mike
