Olham, Escadrille Amricaine was the original name of ESC 124. However, certain members in the US government at the time complained about the name because the US was maintaining a neutral position and did not want other countries, (Germany), to think the ESC 124 flyers were part of the US armed services in any way, so the name was changed to Lafayette Escadrille.
