ARTIFACT: Fantastic 1930's United States Air Corps (USAC) 23rd Tow Target, huge hand-painted leather banner/pennant from Guatemala City, Central America. This banner even has a Guatemalan postage stamp or perhaps a tax revenue stamp right in the center of the back. A wonderful, unique US Air Corps piece. The pennant/banner features a HUGE squadron 'patch' 9 1/2"e; in diameter! The squadron patch is a busted up bird smoking a cigar with a bandaged face, body, and foot, and to its side are crossed flags and the surrounding reads: "23RD TOW TARGET SQD. HENRY L. BORUN – GUATEMALA CITY C. A."
