French Embroidered Wing

This embroidered wing was worn typically on an armband on the pilot's left arm thought it could be sewn to the sleeve, as well.  This design is for a non-commissioned officer.  It depicts a two-bladed propeller flanked by 2 wing pinions in red silk and wing feathers in gold cannetille, a style of embroidery with gold wire, on a black background. See Bartlett, pages 343, no. 4,6,7 and 344, no.5.
