It is painted onto a cigarette case.

I'm guessing EAM are someones initials?

Thank you all in advance.

For some reason I am thinking French, but have been wrong before

The 42nd Bomb Group used that insignia in WWII. Hope this helps,

Yep.

42nd Bombardment Squadron.

Now all I have to do is find a roster and ID EAM. LOL

Thanks to all.

Sometimes initials or monograms can be interpreted two ways … EAM might look like the last name starts with the letter M…. or the last name might actually start with the middle letter A (especially when the initials have a decorative look to them, like shown on this cigarette case or one of the letters appears larger than the rest).

I will have to recheck the roster I found.

Thank you.

I checked the only roster I could find but it was from 1940-41. No luck.

Soooo....if anyone has a wartime roster please see if there is an EMA listed. 😊
