Royal Canadian Naval Air Service Pilot Badge - 1918

Royal Canadian Naval Air Service Pilot Badge - 1918

Formulated in 1918 before the end of WW1, The Royal Canadian Naval Air Service had put to work enlisted and officer recruits while officer pilots were recruited and trained, but before the pilot recruits had completed their training policies changed and the pilot trainees were let go, the other staff were let go or incorporated into the other forces and the idea for having a Royal Canadian Naval Air Service was abandoned. There are several stories about how the wings which were made for the trainee pilots to wear on graduation were distributed but today only a small handful are known to exist, many not in good condition because of the fragile nature of the design. The wing is identical to the wing made for the proposed Canadian Air Force, worn from 1918 to 1924 except that the latter had a maple leaf replacing the anchor.
