     If you search on "Alberto Salinas Carranza" using Google, (7-24-06), you will find about 615 links. Many of them are blocked by my Trend Micro P-cillin Internet Security program. Many others only mention Alberto in passing or as related to Emilio Carranza Rodriguez. I only tried to access some 50 or 60 sites, without much success.

Mexican Air Force Insignia - 1914
via email from Fred Frederiksen, 6-12-06
     I am contacting you because I am having a difficult time locating more information about the 1914 Mexican Air Force. Many years ago, I knew a dealer of Mexican war artifacts. I am a novice aviator and at the time I purchased a military aviator's brass hat pin insignia. The gentleman explained to me the history of his native country and how he found most of his collection with a metal detector. If you would, please view the attached picture of the hat pin and maybe you can tell me more of it?
Best regards,
Editor's Note: If you can help Fred to identify this insignia, please contact him via email using my address.
