The 8th Air Force was based in England during WWII from 1942-1945, seeing HEAVY COMBAT over occupied Europe in B-17 FLYING FORTRESSES and B-24 LIBERATORS. As many of the airmen were well paid compared to other servicemen, they often had more elaborate unit insignias made for their uniforms at their own expense by local shops around their airfields or at shops in larger towns while they were on R&R or leave. A neat patch for the veteran or collector for a uniform or display.
