Warren Carroll was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He started collecting insignia at a very early age, most probably because his father was a "badger" as well. He wrote Wings of Canada and Great Britain 1913-1945 in 1981 and has contributed to two U.S. publications on Air Force and Para wings and one on Canadian AF insignia. He has written for journals in Canada and the U.S. on Commonwealth and world-wide aviation insignia all over the world. As a member of the Organization of Military Museums of Canada he has helped on insignia and uniform identification for most of the aviation museums in Canada, one in England and one in former East Germany. Warren Carroll's activity in the community resulted in receiving The Certificate of Merit Award in 1989 and was presented with The Canada 125 Commemorative Medal in 1992, both from the Canadian Government. He is married to Donna with two children, Eric and Erin who have since flown the coop. Having lived in the United States as well as Canada, they currently reside in Thornhill (Markham), Ontario.
