Welcome to Snyder's Treasure Trove of Militaria!


U.S. Army Aviation (1917-1945)


This page contains a sampling of our extensive collection of US Army military aviation wings and insignia.  The earliest pieces are from the U.S. Army Air Service Signal Corps, later the U. S. Army Air Service, then U.S. Army Air Corps, U. S. Army Air Forces, and finally the U. S. Air Force.

This area will take some time to fill out. As the specific areas become active, the links will be enabled. Check back often.

At the start of World War I, observation balloon units were organized into companies, squadrons, and wings. Each company was equipped with one balloon. Five companies comprised a squadron, and three squadrons made up a wing.

By the end of the war 110 companies had been created. In the field Balloon companies were allotted to the ground units they supported as needed.

In 1918 June, with squadron organization discontinued, company designations were numbered and organized into groups. Only 35 companies made it to France with the American Expeditionary Force (AEF). 17 companies served at the front, making 1,642 combat ascensions, while six other groups were en route to the front at the armistice.

This is an extremely rare named and documented US Army/US Navy aviator insignia lot.

Alfred Crockett Dunn was one of only a handful of US Navy Long Distance Horizon (Aerial) Photographers. He was an enlisted man in the US Navy, and at the outbreak of WWI, he was loaned to the US Army Air Service. He wore a US Army uniform with USN collar disk insignia specially made by FIX Paris, with the engraved letters USN. Each aerial photographer in his squadron was issued two Aerial Photographer half wings, one for the flight suit, and one for the uniform. In 1918, Dunn took flight training and became an enlisted aviator, wearing two sets of wings on the same uniform.

He was later commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the US Air Service Aeronautics section assigned to Mitchell Field, Long Island, New York in 1919, adding yet another set of officer flight wings (not included in this lot).

This lot contains a copy of his 2LT commission, his Aerial Photographer half wing, the USN silver enlisted collar disks, his enlisted aviator wings (two variants), and his collar and rank insignia of a 2LT. There is a brief typewritten biography with the information above.

This lot is in near excellent condition overall, as shown.
