Chinese Air Force Dagger, wings and Chinese Order


Recommended Posts

Here is a group of Chinese Air Force items consisting of a Chinese Air Force Dagger, wings and the Chinese Order of the Resplendent Banner 6th class. These items belonged to Captain John Francis Quinn Jr. who was a scout plane pilot aboard the USS San Francisco. Quinn flew the SOC Seagull a single-engine scout observation biplane in a seaplane configuration. Quinn served in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters during World War Two. He received seven campaign stars for his Asiatic-Pacific campaign medal. He was involved in Attu, Kiska, Wake Island, Makin, Beto, Kwajalein, Saipan, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Quinn was part of Chinese Convoy Group DE/AM. He was awarded the Special Breast Order of Yun Hui and the Chinese Order of the Resplendent Banner 6th class and a pair of Chinese Air Force wings by the Nationalist Chinese Government. Chinese on the clutch back wings translates to “Issued by Chinese Air Force Central Command” the top right characters say “Made by Zhongmei”. Zhong translates to China, Mei translates to America. Quinn also brought home this Chinese Air Force dagger.
