Response to Minimum rank of a bomb aimer

Hi,
Just to add to Alex's message, your wing or brevet is a variant of the standard RAF issue and is of Canadian manufacture. A characteristic of the Canadian-made wings is the tip of the wing, it is flat whereas the British-made examples are more rounded and have coarse weave.Air Bomber wings were first issued in 1942.
For more information see Warren Carroll's excellent book Eagles Recalled or this site: http://www.ww2wings.com/main.shtml.
