rustywings Posted May 15, 2010 Author Share #226 Posted May 15, 2010 Last weekend I attended the West Coast Historical Militaria Collectors Show and found a few items I'd like to share. While searching a good friend's table looking for wings and patches, I found this 63rd AAFFTD (Army Air Force Flight Training Detachment) class book from the Raymond-Richardson Aviation Company, Douglas, Georgia. Seeing that the book was dated 1943, I bought it believing it might have one of the flying cadets pictured which are named on the large silver plated plaque I illustrated a couple of weeks ago on this thread. To my surprise, this class book contained photos of the first and second Honor Cadets inscribed on the plaque. This book adds some clarity and documentation to the silver honor plaque...and it's nice to put a name and face together. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
