WW1 ROYAL FLYING CORPS ‘FEATHERED’ DETACHED ‘O’ OBSERVER WING

WW1 Royal flying Corps Observers' brevet embroidered on black wool with brown thread between feathers. White embroidered on black wool, with an unusual gap between ‘O’ and wings themselves. This wing belonged to the same observer as the two other wings, and cap badge/collar badges that are newly listed also.

The owner was and infantry Officer, serving in Egypt/Sinai, from 1916, before joining the Royal Flying Corps in April 1917, where he served with 14 Squadron, again Middle East. He was posted back to the Infantry in Feb/March, serving in the UK/France. He did not join the RAF, hence these wings certainly RFC

Very attractive and scarce style of wings in excellent condition. Has been carefully removed from tunic, still with traces of thread used to attach to tunic.
