This is a lovely leather World War II United States Army Air Forces 44th Bomb Squadron, 40th Bomb Group, 20th Air Force patch in a small size. After a stint in the Panama Canal Zone, the 44th was called upon to fly B-29 Superfortresses in the CBI theatre in 1943. It was hand-painted in the China-Burma-India theatre and shows a red, white and black bird carrying a bomb in its talons.
Circa World War II.
About 3"e; in width by 4-1/16"e; in height.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
This is from a United States Army Air Forces squadron patch collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MDIL98 LDFJX
6+ (Fine-Very Fine): The patch has some light to medium wear and soiling; leather is somewhat stiff.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
