Unidentified Japanese made pilot wings ..can anyone help ? :-)

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Trying to identify these wartime made wings, they have the same backing as other wartime Japanese cloth / bullion wings that I have seen...these originally came with a grouping of Japanese items from WW2 in a veterans estate clearance in the US....any help on identification would be appreciated.

Thanks

I am guessing one of the wings of one of the Japanese Puppet Governments?

I don't think that this is a japanese wings.

Could be a phantasy (put together) piece ...

I truly doubt if this is a fantasy piece ,there is no logic in creating a one off wing out of original pieces , ie correct wartime star, no modern fibers , correct wartime backing paper and nice original aging to bullion , certainly not chemically aged.

Just because it is unidentified I certainly wont be condemning to the bin !!

cheers

Steve

Japan made lots of insignia post war for foreign countries. Many U.S. military insignia was custom made in post war Japan. My feeling is this is what this is. They simply utilized their own star etc. could be English, Austrailian etc

...thanks Jareth , but still remains unidentified.

It is not any known aviation insignia that I as a collector or other aviation collectors recognise. I still lean towards aviation school, or puppet state pilots wings....something will crop up eventually ! Thanks for the help folks ;-)
