Bracelets Made from Wings

Recommended Posts

Some great bracelets posted here!! I have a well worn bracelet to offer. I have never been able to find any info on this pilot. His name is H. L. Murphy. ASN 0-779548. If anyone can point me in a direction in order to find any info on this pilot, I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks for looking.

Thanks John. I've always thought that engraving was kind of sad really considering his fate, but it's honestly also why I've kept it all this time.
