    I cannot say I recognise him? But I don't think it is Gable, too slim in the face, plus he appears to wear Naval Aviators wings. Gable was USAAF.

    Cheers, Ade.

    No, again USAAF. Hair too dark too.

    Cheers, Ade.

    How about Tyrone Power? I think he flew DC-3's over 'The Hump' during WW2.

    Fingers crossed, Ned.

    Clark Gable was my guess as well. He was a Captain but in the army i believe. So as Ade stated he has wings.

    It's not Jimmy Stewart as well. The facial definitions don't match.

    This is a good quiz.

    Ya know Tyrone Powers is a good guess. I was named after him by my parents. From the picture it does resemble him but i can't be positive.

    Ok, i need to know ??????

    rgds, Tyrone
