    Can someone help ID this photo. We bought a lot of WW2 photos and this was in it.
    No military badges or medals. It was suggested this man was either private duty for black entertainers in the 50s (black entertainers stayed in black owned hotels and had their own bus lines because of segregation) or a Tuskegee graduate after the war.
    Just curious....Steven.Click image for larger version.

    Hi Steven, he is a Tuskegee airman for sure. Nice image. There would be no insignia worn on this uniform, other than a shoulder patch which is out of shot on this photo. Most likely a WW2 pic.

    Cheers, Ade.
