Aid to Britain Medal

This medal was presented to Lt. Col. William C. Lambert. Although he was America’s second leading ace during World War I, he received little notice because he did not serve with a U.S. flying unit. Lt. Col. Lambert scored 22 victories between April and August 1918 in an RAF SE-5A. (U.S. Air Force photo)
