    Default Squadron Insignia

    Here are a couple of odd ball pieces, the 1st is a 163rd Aero, direct embroidered on the sleeve of a summer weight enlisted tunic.
    the second is a 12th photo section insignia, the 12th P.S served the 1st Day Bomb Group. It is large patch most likely from a pillow cover or pennant..

    This is probably the first direct embroidered insignia I have seen on a WW I uniform, very nice.

    Chuck will love to see this as he has a weakness for Photo Sections...

    Thanks Steve,
    The 163rd is wild, the insignia has a ton of wear and age to it. On the inside the yellow is almost a lemon color. The 12th photo section is another one of my favs. I too have a weakness for PS stuff.. Paul

    I thought I heard someone call my name...

    Geeze, Steve. You know me too well. To say I love this photo section piece, is an understatement. Paul & I had talked about it but I tried to convince him he was describing a 354th AS insignia. I couldn't get it through my thick skull that the 12th PS had their own insignia.

    Paul-
    Some more outstanding Air Service history here. Thank you! for making the effort to share it with us all. I'm really appreciating your collection of fine aviation artifacts.
    I now know who my competition is

    Hello,

    I've been following this forum for a while now, but this is my first post. I have a 25th Aero squadron patch I thought I'd share and see what everyone thinks.

    Thanks,
    John

    John-
    Let me be one of the first to welcome you to the Warrelics forum.

    This 25th AS patch is very interesting. I've never seen one on a uniform before! Why don't you start a separate thread about this intriguing piece of aviation history? I definitely want to see the rest of the uniform or as Paul Lee Harvey would say "Now for the rest of the story...".

    Please consider starting that thread & post some good pictures of the uniform this patch is attached to. I know others will love to see it too.

    -Chuck
