    RCAF Tunic Info

    Hi all,

    I just picked this up at a thrift store and I was wondering if someone could tell me the significance of the two brass wings and the last ribbon with the brass star on it?

    Thanks

      The smaller ones are 'Operational Wings' with bar for two full tours

      It might be somewhat easy to identify the owner of the tunic.

      The MID, QEII corrination, Canada 1967, CD and the forengn award would all of been in the Canadain Gazette. All one has to do it run though the lists and find the possiable persons who has all of the above.

      What was the rank on the tunic?? As well not many WWII senior carrer Navigator officers so they can be easy track that down as well

          Ok seems that medal did have a star device

          https://fcafa.com/2016/06/29/czechos...airmen-in-ww2/

          Ribbon is 34 mm wide 38 mm long, is mid-blue in colour with a 8 mm wide white bar 2 mm in from the ribbons outer edge.

          The ribbon is the same for both medals but a Grade I award also has a 5 mm diameter silver star.

            Thanks for the great information, the uniform has the rank of Group captain and after some looking around I found a name tag in a pocket with E. H. M. Walsh (Can/J.s088) on it. Some quick googling shows that he was MID in the 1944 Kings Birthday Honours.
