What wings would a engineer wear on a B24J in early 1944? Thanks Steve

Flight Engineers typically wore Air Crew wings during the war until the Flight Engineer wing came out late in the war. Most sightings of Flight Engineer wings are related to the B-29 in the Pacific Theater.

A B-24 Flight Engineer in 1944 could have also worn Aerial Gunner wings as they would have been qualified for that rating as well.  It would have been their choice which one they wore.
