initial, as well as the unit's definitive insignia of a Lakota (Sioux)

Adjutant Walter Lovell while not a high scorer, Lovell gained respect as a
reliable flight leader, supporting both his squadron and his group mates.

Lt William Thaw Usually marked his aircraft with his initial, usually in red.
However he did use a white disk on his Nieuport 11's which he flew.
After serving as an observer/gunner, he received flight training and was reassigned
to the Escadrille Americaine on 28 April 1916. By the time this squadron was
disbanded in February 1918, Thaw had achieved two confirmed victories.
While serving with the 103rd Aero Squadron, he scored three more victories
to become an ace. The first American to be cited for gallantry and promoted
by the French, Thaw may well have been the first American to participate in aerial
combat during World War I. When the war ended, he returned to the United States and
became an insurance agent. He died from pneumonia, age 40, at his home in Pittsburgh.
