Airship Pilot wing badge die - Making a badge

Recommended Posts

The 1/2 wings were used for a variety of things, including as a kite or fixed balloon pilot, sea plane crew and aviation cadet.

 

As a general rule of thumb if it was capable of independent flight, then the pilot wore the full wings.

 

There is a book called "Contact" (I think that is the title but I may be wrong) that lists the first 6-10,000 naval aviators and provides a brief biosketch. I'll see if I can dig up my copy and see what they have to say about your guy.

Again I appreciate your help and look forward to your reply. Ironically, I did find the ww2wings site after I'd posted here earlier this afternoon. Lots of valuable information, especially when clicking on the pics.

And I'm not saying that because I owe him money hah!

I wish you owed me money Patrick, then I could buy some more wings. Ha. Thanks for the kind words guys. It's much appreciated. Just wish I had more time to update the site. I'm sitting on about 40+ updates right now. Thanks for the patience everyone who submitted new items. I promise I will get them out to the site.
