This is the only W.W.1 photo I own. I collect W.W.2 8th AAF items but I could not pass this up. People just seem to like this picture. He has a very serious look in his eye. I wish I knew is story.

Always looking for anything related to the 8th AAF and flight gear of W.W.2.

Also any info on Advisory Team 98 the unit my late father served in.

Glad to see this thread is still producing some great images ( I was the orginal poster some 15 pages ago). Here is a rather portly infantryman, whose uniform strains to contain him in a few places.

 

Hey! I saw him at a reenactment, recently!
