Regular price $395.00

Item Description

Original Items: Only One Lot of 49 Available. The United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) was the aerial warfare service component of the United States Army between 1926 and 1941. After World War I, as early aviation became an increasingly important part of modern warfare, a philosophical rift developed between more traditional ground-based army personnel and those who felt that aircraft were being underutilized and that air operations were being stifled for political reasons unrelated to their effectiveness. The USAAC was renamed from the earlier United States Army Air Service on 2 July 1926, and was part of the larger United States Army. The Air Corps became the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) on 20 June 1941, giving it greater autonomy from the Army's middle-level command structure. During World War II, although not an administrative echelon, the Air Corps (AC) remained as one of the combat arms of the Army until 1947, when it was legally abolished by legislation establishing the Department of the Air Force.

This lovely lot features 39 Patches attributed to the various Air Forces units and schools. They are all in wonderful condition with a few showing signs of moth nips. The other 10 items include various types of collar insignia, winged prop devices, lapel devices and more. Please consult the photos for the finer details.
