    The one on his left arm is either of these………and I believe you said he was “aircrew” so it would probably be the first one “Aviation Radioman 3rd Class”

    I can’t quite tell, but could the one on his right arm be a US Navy Aerial Gunner badge……here’s a link to what they looked like, not sure if it matches

    United States Navy/Marines - Aerial Gunner


    or it “may” be another “aviation radioman” as show on the insignia diagram below in the next post. Not sure if I can confirm it from this angle in the photo

    BUT to me, it has something below the “wings” which looks more like the aerial gunner badge???
