ARTIFACT: This is a wonderful and iconic circa early World War II jacket patch for Wright Field near Riverside, Ohio. This patch design was worn by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle in 1942 on his famous "Tokyo Raid". Doolittle received the Medal of Honor for conceiving of and carrying out his secret and successful five-pronged Japanese bombing mission. Now the location of the National Museum of the United States Air Force, Wright Field was originally built during World War I and named for aviation pioneer Wilbur Wright. The patch is in leather with a painted yellow and black logo.

VINTAGE: Circa early World War II.

SIZE: Approximately 4-7/8" in diameter.




ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Air Force squadron patch collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VBJJX13 LHGEX9/13 SHGEX12/15

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): The patch has some small areas of medium wear to the painted areas; leather is supple.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
