    Take a look at my other items for a WW2 crew member wing and several trench art pieces with wings.

    My great uncle was a tailgunner in WWII. He was shot down over England. before he went up in his first mission he had his wings welded to a bracelet and had his little brother's (my grandfather's) name engraved on the inside. It is also my father and brother's name. He said if he was killed he wanted them to go to his brother. My brother now owns them.

    Thank for sharing your story, Viking.

    I have several WW2 wing and insignia bracelets, but none with a family history.

    If you have time look at my trench art wing related items.
