    Hello Gent's,
    I just picked up a WW2 8th AF officer jacket that did not have the lapel pins on it. I have since gotten both the U.S. and the winged propeller lapel pin's ,but I need to know exactly where to place them on the jacket's lapel. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!!

    There is an 'Officer's Guide' ( 1944 ) which shows correct placement,
    but I do not believe it has changed much - if at all.

    Hope this is readable.........

    Yes I can read it and it looks like centered and 1/2" above and 1/2" below the cut in the lapel.
