THAT HAS A PICTURE OF THE VERY A-8 SERIES
LIKE THE ONE BELOW


Grade 582 1/30-second timer used by the US Army-Airforce and known as Watch. Navigation (Ground Speed) Type A-8.

One of its most important uses of the A-8    was for navigation. Air speed indicators on WWII aircraft were controlled by air being forced into the air speed indicator as you flew your plane. The problem was that as you gained altitude less and less air entered the device and there was always a wind blowing and your speed relative to the ground is going to be either lower or higher depending on whether you are flying into the wind or with the wind.

To make corrections and get  your actual speed relative to the ground you needed to do some arithmetic. You had to figure your actual ground-speed and compare it to the airspeed indicator and then adjust your navigation calculations accordingly. The pilot or navigator would pick out, say, a pair of known parallel roads or other landmarks about 5 to 10 miles apart early in your flight and the measure the distance between them using the scale on a map, they would then click this 10 second timer on and then off as they    flew from one to the other. Some basic [for those that were trained] calculations and division and they had their actual ground speed.

The European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal is a military decoration of the United States armed forces which was first created on November 6, 1942 by Executive Order 9265 [1] issued by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The decoration was intended to recognize those military service members who had performed military duty in the European Theater (to include North Africa and the Middle East) during the years of the Second World War. Colored bands representing Germany (on the ribbon’s left side), Italy (on the ribbon’s right side), and the United States (in the center of the ribbon) are visible in the ribbon. The brown and green areas of the ribbon represent the terrain of the area of conflict, which ranged from beaches and sand, to grass and woodlands, to mountains.

Originally known as the “EAME Ribbon”, the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal is awarded for any service performed between December 7, 1941 and March 2, 1946 provided such service was performed in the geographical theater areas of Europe, North Africa, or the Middle East. For those service members who participated in multiple battle campaigns, service stars are authorized to the decoration with the arrowhead device awarded for any airborne or amphibious operations performed. The Fleet Marine Force combat operation insignia is also authorized for certain sailors.

The following campaigns are recognized by service stars to the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal.[2]

HAND PAINTED ON CANVAS WALT DISNEY/WARNER BROS
13TH BOMBER SQUADRON DESIGN PATCH

 

WWII  DISNEY DESIGNED HAND PAINTED ON
CANVASS BOMBER FLIGHT PATCH

 

When Walt Disney was a young American ambulance driver in France during World War I, he was exposed to a new form art that would be titled “nose art”. Nose Art was comic character painting on the cowls of military trucks and the sides of military airplanes. Nose Art had an immense morale boosting effect among the troops.

Disney returned to the United States in 1918 and became the premier cartoonist of the era.

In 1939, the a U.S. Naval unit made a request of Disney, they asked if he would draw up a mascot to paint on one of their new ships. Disney produced a “Bumble Bee in a Sailor’s Hat, wearing Boxing Gloves”. The Naval unit involved was so pleased with the design they adopted it the “Bumble Bee in a Sailor’s Hat, wearing Boxing Gloves” as their unit insignia and began painting it on their jackets and other vehicles.

It was not long before the entire armed forces began requesting Disney creations for their mascot

With the help of six of his top artists, Disney attempted to fill the growing demand for unit mascots. The first two mascots produced by Disney in WWII went to the “Eagle Squadron” of the Royal Air Force, a unit of American volunteers flying for the British prior to American involvement in the war, and to the famed “Flying Tigers”, another volunteer force operating out of China.

 

By the time of US involvement in WWII, while Disney and his staff were creating new designs, Warner Bros. joined in..

While Donald Duck was the most popular amongst Disney characters, Warner Brothers called up both Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny.

Besides the use of  then known popular cartoon characters, every creature that could come to mind was utilized including nearly 150 new dog and cat creations. Their creations swam, crawled, slithered, flew, and were featured just about in every conceivable fashion.

NOTE:

A) Mickey Mouse was a consensus objector because Disney did not want to establish Mickey with war
B)  The personal insignia of German Luftwaffe ace Adolf Galland was Mickey Mouse

With both Disney and Warner Brothers at the helm, nearly every unit  in the armed forces was sporting either a cartoon mascot or skulls, grim reapers, devils and other sinister mascots on  jackets, military equipment, uniforms, tanks,  planes, boats, jeeps, and even dinner plates & stationary were adorned with proud unit mascots.

By 1945 the Disney group & Warner Bros. had created over 1,800 Mascot Logos

Though some “field made” variants were created, most authentic squadron patches were embroidered on “Chenille”, hand painted or decal on leather or hand painted/silk-screened on canvas.

In 1943, the Kellogg’s Cereal company placed 36 small pin-back buttons each featuring a WWII squadron insignia in boxes of their Pep Cereal.

Introduced in 1923. Pep was a Kellogg Company brand of whole-wheat breakfast and long-running rival to Wheaties.

By the 1930’s, Pep was one of the first “fortified” cereals with   vitamins. Extensive advertising, from print advertisements to sponsorship of Mutual Radio’s Superman radio series helped keep the brand in the public’s consciousness.
