Rare WWII United States Army Air Forces War Eagle Field Flight Training Squadron 16 jacket patch. The brightly colored patch was designed by Disney and depicts a stork wearing the US Army star and carrying a young 'aviator' in its beak, above reads: "SQUADRON" and below: "WEF" in yellow detail and the number: "16" is embroidered in white on the stork's beak. Originally the Dos Palos base in California trained RAF and RCAF pilots, but after the attack on Pearl Harbor the US entered the war. At the time, War Eagle Field was the only training field and doubled its size to accommodate the growing numbers of pilots to be trained.
Approximately 5" in diameter
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Embroidered silk/cotton/polyester thread on canvas
To be sewn on.
This is from a USAAF collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAEJX15 LFGEX9/15
8+ (Excellent): The patch shows minor to moderate wear, colors are bright, overall excellent condition.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
