Insignia, Uniforms & Equipment: Balloon Corps 1917-1921 For Sale

Up for offer is a new copy of my recently published book: “The Insignia, Uniforms & Equipment of the U. S. Army Balloon Corps: 1917-1922." It is 134 pages of photos and descriptions of the U. S. Army Balloon Corps balloon pilot and observer wing badges, shoulder patches, hat and collar pins, uniforms, period advertisements, gear, and related ephemera. There are sections on: fantasy pieces, copies and fakes;references and resources;along withsuggestions on conservation and preservation. It even holds a few surprises for the seasoned collector.

If you are a WWI aviation collector, this is a must have reference book for your shelf. Much of the data were reviewed by Duncan Campbell before he passed away. As one major collector put it: "It picks up where the other books on wing badges and insignia left off." It isin an easy-to-read 8 ½” x 11 format: with high resolution images. This is a very limited publication and only available through , or when I give lectures across the country.
