Rare AAC 118th Observation Squadron Bronze Plaque Help

Recommended Posts

I just got this recently.

 

It came from the estate of John D. Porter who was an officer in the 33rd Infantry Division before WW2.

 

Any help concerning what this might be and why Porter might have it is appreciated.

 

Even wild speculations.

 

Love those.

This is probably a vehicle plate for a truck or other vehicle used by the squadron. In know the 37th also had an observation squadron attached to it in the pre war years. I have a group of photos of this unit and the aircraft have the 37th div insignia on them. Nice piece.

It’s got to be a rare bird with the infantry air corps mix.

 

It’s a tag for something that’s for sure.
