USAAF "unofficial" corporals' stripes
« on: November 22, 2014, 05:56:34 AM »
I found these in the rummage box at the market yesterday...cost 1 / $1.50, so it hardly broke the bank! Unfortunately it was just a single, but a good original example of the type. These stripes featuring the Air Corps logo were "unofficial" but photographic evidence shows that they were used...especially within the 8th AF in the UK. In fact, I have a EM's four-pocket with such stripes on it.  ( If anyone has a matching single, feel free to PM me....  ;)  )

Nice! Yeah...it's a shame it was a single, but at least it's kosher and I do have some other examples, so for just 1 I can live with that!  ;)

My pleasure LB! It pays to do a little shopping now and then.
 Check out this seller, a single AAF Pvt. chevron for $24.99, and a pair for $32.99. :o

Doughboy Militaria has several AAF chevrons too, you have to scroll down a bit. ;)
