Three new CPO aviation rates

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up these three CPO rates at the last Franklin, TN TMCA show.


#1 NAP gold bullion on aviation green gaberdine (the picture makes the material look darker)

#2 NAP black on white duck cotton

#3 Transportation Airman (1948-1957) bullion on aviation green gaberdine (again darker in the picture)






The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement.

A night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities to experience all three at the same time.


You can not pronounce as knowledge anything you can not demonstrate.

I really like the aviation green T rating, but I think the job title is another one. Maybe a teacher/instructor in aerial gunnery. The only reason I am thinking this is the rating badge is a ww2 one with the red chevrons. If it was 1948 it would have blue chevrons. I actually think they went to the blue chevrons prior to the end of ww2. None the less nice rate.

Love the bullion CPO NAP. WW2 era(through 1948) bullion CPO rates are my primary collecting interest so thanks for sharing.

Always looking for USN WW2 era Bullion Chief Petty Officer Rates, any Chief Petty Officer Airship Rigger Rates, Liberty Cuffs, WW2 USMC Insignia and Distinguishing Marks, and WW2 Civil Defense and Civil Air Patrol Insignia
