    I too am fond of "sweethearts". Looks like a nice item. The price sounds OK.

    The wing is actually for an Aircrew member and not a pilot. Some info about these wings can be found here:

    What you say is true Phil.

    Pilots get a lot of the glamour, while aircrew get far less of the glory.

    Cheers, Ade.

    cool thanks Ade for the info , i love the history behind it pity i'll never find what happened to the crewman who made it or the women he gave it to but still its a nice piece of history.

    Sometimes if is worth asking the seller a few questions. Many don't realise that the history behind the item is important. Often they will know who it belonged to etc but they just don't bother saying.

    Cheers, Ade.
