    Default Mystery Pilot/aircrew wings from WW2

    Can anyone please identify where these pilot/aircrew wings come from:



    They were acquired by my father, Flt Lt Jack Hubert Stigner, at some time during the war (he served with 53 Squadron between 1941 & 1943, and later with 132 OTU), and passed on to me. I have searched over the years to find where they came from, but with no luck. The colours would suggest Italian, Hungarian or any other country with the same national colour scheme.

    Thanks

    Strange ... I've checked both posts on an I-mac and 2 different PC computers, and no problem, the image is there to see each time.

    For those of you who are having difficulty seeing the wings image, here is the same image via a different source:



    Hope we have better luck this time :)

    I do not see the image in stiggy128's second attempt.
    I have copied the image of the wings to a public folder in Dropbox. Here is the link:

    Heres the deal. The image is hosted on 12Oclock high (TOCH). So if you are logged in at TOCH, you will see the image here.. if you are not logged in at TOCH forum, then you will not see the image here..:)


    Here is the second attempt from photobucket

    Have a play at http://www.flags.net/. You can input the colours and it will give you the country. You can disregard many as not having either (a) been in existence, or (b) not had a recognisable air force. If forced, then I (like stiggy128) would hazard some of YOUR money on Italy! Glider pilot?????
    Is there no end to the fascinating side-tracks that this forum presents????
