    Vintage Pilots Wings ID Help Needed

    I'm helping out a friend of mine who's father was a pilot in WWII and many years afterwards. The first 2 pictures are marked sterling wings that I believe are fromm WWII. The 2nd two pictures are unmarked wings that I believe are from his service after WWII. His second wife was a flight nurse during WWII. My friend thinks the wings
    and other memorabilia from US Flying Services might have been hers. Those wings appear to be vintage WWII sterling wings that had a logo glued to the front. I think US Flying Services may have been a small charter line based in Florida. Any info would be helpful.

    Nice looking wings! Take a look at this website for a listing of wings. Go to WW2 US Army Air Force and then follow one of many choices such as Pilot or whatever. You need to see the manufacturer name on the back of your wings as many different companies made them. The pin back feature is WW2 or earlier. The round clutch backs started in WW2.

    There are many experts are on the US Militaria Forum.

    Great looking and historic items you have there! Steve NY
