Great early World War II jacket patch for the United States Army Air Forces 324th Bomb Squadron, 91st Bomb Group, 8th Air Force - original owner Pete DeBoy (sp? might be DuBois) from Arbutus, MD. This squadron is from the famed "Memphis Belle", which in May 1943 became the first USAAF heavy bomber craft to complete 25 European missions and then return home safely. The patch is airbrushed and hand-painted on leather and shows a cartoon rabbit character eating a carrot and casually holding a bomb at its center. This patch was removed from a flight jacket.
Approximately About 5" in diameter.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Airbrushed and hand-painted leather.
This is from a USAAF collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON-EIH-25-16 LHGEX4/16 SRET01/19
7 (Very Fine): The patch shows moderate wear, was removed from clothing, much of the painted and airbrushed details remain intact; great been there look!
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
