History: The 102nd Observation Squadron organized on March 22, 1921 under the command of Maj. Littauer as the 102nd Squadron, 27th Division Air service, New York National Guard. The unit was redesigned the 102nd Observation Squadron on January 23, 1923. This squadron can trace its history back to a group formed by aviation enthusiasts in the NY National Guard in April 1908. They became the 1st Aero Company on November 1,1915 and became the first National Guard unit in aviation and to be pressed into federal service on July 13, 1916 for use in the Mexican Punitive Expedition. When the United States entered World War I, all National Guard aviation units were dissolved. New York’s 1st Aero Company was no different and it was disbanded on May 23, 1917. The founder of the unit, Captain Raynall Cawthorne Bolling and almost all of the members of the unit left the National Guard to join the Army Signal Corps Reserve and in May 1917 founded the 1st Aero Reserve squadron. That unit was sent to France in August 1917 and designated 26th Aero Squadron. Its personnel and aircraft formed the basis for an aviation school and maintenance unit. After the war, a group of veteran pilots initiated the formation of an Aero Club, which became the 102nd.

An original later RZM 7/72/39 SA dagger maker code for Karl Rob. The blade is excellent, no damage, scuffs or sharpening, just some light staining and runner marks. It retains nearly all it’s cross graining and original polish and looks really good. The brown wood grip is good with some light surface marks, no cracks or chips, the badges are undamaged with just some surface ageing. The late plated cross guards have lost a lot of their finish showing the base metal and age. There are no signs as far as I can see that the dagger has been taken apart, everything is intact, the tang nut has lost it’s plated finish. Please ask for other images of the grip badges!
