Blue Enamel single star, PAA logo and Africa. Wings are 2 1/4" across. This pilot wings would have been worn by someone ferrying US planes to Africa to the British prior to the US entry to the war.

The following websites list some information on the history of the PAA Ferries Ltd, company:

The following is copied from one of the website: “Soon after the outbreak of World War II Pan Am founder, Juan Trippe, attended an Aviation Forum in London. One night during the Forum he was summoned to Downing Street to have a secret meeting with Winston Churchill. Churchill was very interested in Pan Am's long haul flying and asked Trippe if he thought Pan Am's Boeing Clippers could fly from Brazil to Africa non-stop. At the time England was struggling to beat back the Germans in East Africa and Churchill was exploring the feasibility of getting "lend / lease" supplies to his troops. Trippe told Churchill that Pan Am could do the job. Soon after returning to the United States Trippe was summoned to a meeting at the White House with Franklin Roosevelt. The two world leaders were very keen for Pan Am to build airports across Africa. Not only would this greatly help the English troops in Egypt but it would allow the US to appear neutral as the work was being undertaken by a "private" company. Immediately, Pan Am began to assign men and materials to the Africa project. Interestingly, the father of 2004 US Presidential hopeful Howard Dean was one of the key managers on the Africa project. For insurance and government billing purposes Pan Am created a subsidy "PAA Ferries" or "PAA Africa.” Staff were transferred back and forth between Pan Am & the Africa project as needed. The project was a great success and soon Pan Am pilots were ferrying desperately needed supplies to Egypt & Sudan.”
