Carrick, thanks for the heads-up on the closing of this fine history photo site. I have visited it often over the last few years. Too bad it will be going offline.

I have been there several times too. Why should they close it?

Questions about the photograph reported to be "Billy Bishop."

 

1) Anyone else think it does not look like Billy Bishop at all?

 

2) I am not a real uniform expert but is not that an American uniform the man is wearing?

 

Unless someone else thinks this is "Billy Bishop" I am going to guess its an American named Bishop and someone made a incorrect leap.

 

Edit: Ahh...my first posting of an image here and it worked! Yep...gonna be a good weekend.

Duke, I don't believe that is Billy Bishop either. However, the man may be wearing a British uniform. The upper and lower pocket flaps on the tunic are not typical of a US outfit, but rather look exactly like those on a British item. However, the collar isn't right with the button front for the British. The wings also don't look quite right for a Brit, though there were many variants of said wings. On second thought, perhaps it is a British-made US tunic.
