Hellenic Air Force - Pilot

Click on the images to see a larger version and the back of the wing/badge
The Royal Hellenic Air Force was formed as a third, separate service in 1930 when the Air Ministry was founded. The pattern of pilot badge worn during WWII was established in 1936 and this same style of a right facing crowned eagle was worn until the end of the Greek monarchy in 1973. The only difference was the use of different materials and manufacturing techniques. A gold bullion version was worn on the dress uniform. A silver bullion or white silk version was worn on the service uniform.
