    Very nice Bronk!! Who's the maker on the KC? Looks to have a lot of its frosting left, do you have the case? I like the pennants and fraunschaft pins too.

    I had 2, sold one...you know I had these on WAF,GCA, AHF, and I think someone did ID the makers, but I don't remember..if you go to those forums, my name bronk, there are better pics....also had 2 Spangen[s?]...yes, I have case and ribbon...the GIs seemed to know what to get....I used my brothers camera before..I thought I saved the good pics..if not I will try to get some more...the pins are in PERFECT condition...I love just looking at them...I have the regimental book, and it says when they [ 179th ] got to Munich, they went on a souvenir hunt !!

    Australia...we had a huge (for Australia) pilot and crew training program...finished off in Canada often before becoming operational...
    My grandfather was a great pilot, but after crashing three aircraft in night training, twice clipping power lines....they realised he had night blindness...so they offered a test pilot job, which he took.
    Didn't know this when he was alive to my annoyance...the other grandfather was ground crew, loaded bombs apparently...

    picture? I'm not familiar with lazy 2, but I thought a lazy 3 is bad? the GCA, AHF, WRF guys are much more knowledgeable than I, on the KCs
