Product Description

•••••

ARTIFACT: This is a rare WWII USAAF 52nd Bomb Group, 20th AF decal on leather jacket patch. The group was formed in Florida, so it was only fitting that the design that was chosen for the insignia was of a ferocious alligator holding a bomb with its tail. This is from the unit that flew World War II's most destructive Incendiary Raid, which devastated a quarter of Tokyo, Japan in 1945.
