Affectionately referred to as Mr. Army National Guard Aviation, took his first flight with his dad in 1929 and earned his private pilot license in 1943. He would eventually become one of the most experienced aviators in Rhode Island Army Aviation history. He was both a fixed and rotary wing instructor pilot with more than 9,000 military flight hours and 12,000 total hours flight time. He saw combat during WWII as a 19-year-old infantryman, and earned the Bronze Star and Purple Heart during the Battle of Leyte. His Rhode Island Army Aviation career spanned three decades, starting in 1954 as an Aviation Officer with the 43rd Division Artillery at Hillsgrove and concluding in 1977 as the State Aviation Officer at Quonset Point. Russell was Flight Activity Commander at Hillsgrove from 1956 until 1974, and then became the first Rhode Island State Aviation Officer and Army Aviation Support Facility Commander. Though he retired federally at the rank of colonel he was promoted to brigadier general in the Rhode Island Army National Guard shortly before his retirement in 1977. Joseph Garrahy declared January 7, 1978 as Russell J. Johnson Day in Rhode Island. The item “1940s WWII A-2 Horsehide Leather Flight Jacket Bronco MFG Corp.

WWII Circa 1943, WASP, WOMEN’S AIRFORCE SERVICE PILOT WING, Class 43-W-1, BULLION WING. Here is a WWII WASP Bullion Pilot Wing that one does not see very often. This wing has come back into the collectors market and is very uncommon. Bullion wire thread embroidered on gabardine. Depicts a central shield-shaped escutcheon, with the class number “W1″ flanked by a wing on each side. The number just above the shield is the squadron number of the Training Command, and is difficult to identify. This does not react to Ultra Violet light. This is a Collectors and Museum Grade Item. Research shows that this WASP Pilot wing dates to 1943. A total of eighteen WASP classes completed training: eight in 1943 and ten in 1944. Classes graduating in 1944 and thereafter were issued the newly designed official Army Air Forces WASP wings with a diamond-shaped lozenge in the center. Unlike this earlier WASP wing design, with its central shield-shaped escutcheon, the new silver badge conformed to heraldic tradition by incorporating a lozenge centered between two wings. In heraldic usage, a lozenge is the traditional shape of a woman’s coat of arms. It is said to have been selected for its resemblance to the shape of the shield carried by Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, weaving, crafts, and war. This design was used until the deactivation of WASP in December 1944. With the above being said, eight classes graduated in 1943, W-1 thru W-8. This wing pattern was not used after 1943. The first two classes were marked with the 319th, and thereafter the 318th for the remaining five classes in 1943. So this either has to be the 319th or the 318th. This Pilot wing had to belong to a member of the 319th Training Command, which was the first graduating class of 1943, W1. Is it possible that this WASP Pilot wing was made in England during WWII? I wish I could answer that. Of the 25,000 women who applied for flight training, 1,830 were accepted, and of those, 1,074 received their wings. The second, third, and fourth classes, designated 43-W-2, 43-W-3, and 43-W-4, entered training in Houston, but in April of 1943 all training was shifted to the 318th AAFTD at Avenger Field near Sweetwater, Texas. 5773 The Women Airforce Service Pilots Badge was an award of the United States Army that was issued during the Second World War. The badge created for the Women Airforce Service Pilots, or WASP (not WASPs, because the acronym already includes the plural “Pilots”), was awarded to more than a thousand women who had qualified for employment as civilian, non-combat pilots of military aircraft used by the U. Army Air Forces during World War II. The first wings were privately and hastily designed and paid for out of the pockets of Floyd Odlum and his wife, Jacqueline Cochran, who in 1942 became the head of WASP.
