Please note that the picture has been enlarged to better show the detail. Formally known as the 1st American Volunteer Group
the "Flying Tigers" were an all volunteer group of former Army, Navy and Marine pilots and ground crews
that operated as a part of the Chinese Air Force in 1941 and 1942 under the command of General Claire Chennault.
They are generally credited with destroying almost 300 Japanese aircraft with a loss of only 14 of their own.
The Flying Tiger emblem was created by the Walt Disney Studio. Their shark-nosed fighters are easily the most recognizable of any combat aircraft of World War II.
The unit was dis-banded in July 1942 and absorbed into the 14th Air Force
keeping both General Chennault as their commander and their distinctive nose art. a brief suggestion
Most smaller hat pins can be multitasked as lapel pins or tie tacks. This larger pin measures 1 7/8" x 1 1/4" and is too large for that. However
being a larger pin it can also be worn, military style,
pinned to a shirt or jacket just above the left top pocket.
Get a pair for the Epaulets of a military style shirt, jacket, or Trench Coat. It is also the ideal size to use in a Military Shadow Box.
Career veterans have served in a variety of units, each with their own unique unit insignia.
A shadow box is a memorial wall plague that displays the history of their service.
In addition to showing the insignias of all of the units with which they have served,
it also displays any ribbons, awards and decorations that the individual has earned. Does your veteran have one? They are easy to make.
A picture frame and some felt covered cork is all that you need. You can also use this as a decorative accent for your
purse, back pack, tote bag, bulletin board, jewelry box -----
