This is a WWI USAS 88th Aero Aviation Squadron Badge. The 88th Aero Squadron was a Air Service, United States Army
unit that fought on the Western Front during World War I.
The squadron was assigned as a Corps Observation Squadron,
performing short-range, tactical reconnaissance over the III Corps, United
States First Army sector of the Western Front in France, providing battlefield
intelligence. After the 1918 Armistice with Germany, the squadron was
assigned to the United States Third Army as part of the Occupation of the
Rhineland in Germany. It returned to the United States in June 1919 and became
part of the permanent United States Army Air Service in 1921, being re-designated
as the 88th Squadron.
Approximately 2-1/4"x 1".
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Horizontal pin with locking over-under swivel catch.
This is from a United States Air Service badge collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MHJJV14 LBGIEX04/19 SBEJJX06/19
8+ (Excellent): The patina is wonderful, and there has been a period replacement of the Pin.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
