Can anyone help me with identifying this wing? WWII Iraq

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me to identify this wing?  I acquired it in a box of other military insignia, but couldn't ID it.  I think it's Commonwealth, but don't know the country, age, or value.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.  Frank

Hi Frank,,

What you have here is an Iraqi half wing that looks like it dates to the WWII era. I believe that this is an aircrew wing, with pilots having wings on both sides of the insignia. The British had a major presence in Iraq through the WWII era, so Iraqi uniforms and insignia definitely have that "Commonwealth" look to them.

 

I was going to reference the wing for you, but could only find the image of one on another militaria site.- https://gmic.co.uk/topic/44784-iraqi-air-force-parches-from-kingdom39s-era-to-republican39s-era/
