I had a friend look at these and he said that these maybe Aussie made?
Ballon wings??? Nice.....they have to have something to do with training staff??? Did the US deploy balloons in WW2.... Observation???
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
Hi René. The cloth wings I have are on the same Barathea or Worsted wool
with the black backing like yours has. I believe they are US made.
Searched, but have no cloth Balloon wings as I thought, only 'Technical
Observer', Command Pilot, 'Observer', 'Glider Pilot', and the earlier
version of 'Flight Surgeon'.
I'd post a photo, but for some reason the system won't let me.
Possibly because it says my pic is 2.00MB......... !

No luck either way.........!
Rene', The Air Corps had a bunch of manned baloons used for coastal defense in the US mainland. There is a hangar right here in Oregon where I have showed my museum several times. Here is a link to the website. Tillamook Air Museum The hangar is amazing even without the baloons. Nice wings by the way.
