This is a rare World War II Consolidated Vultee Air Transport Command jacket patch. This patch came to us with some other items from the estate of Wally Johnson, an ATC radio operator (pictured above). Please click on the links at the bottom of this page to see what else belonged to Mr. Johnson (sold separately). The patch shows an aircraft with an eagle’s head and wings whizzing by with the message RUSH!
Circa World War II.
Approximately 4-15/16” in diameter.
Twill embroidered in cotton/silk threads, mesh backing.
This is from a civil aviation collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MBHEX11 LHEJX3/12
8- (Very Fine-Excellent-): The patch shows some light wear only.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
