Original U.S. WWII 8th Air Force Hand Painted Flag Banner

Item Description

Original Item: One-of-a-kind. This is a fantastic double-sided white wool flag, or banner, that measures 40 inches by 40 inches which features a blue cotton circle (on each side) that has been hand painted with the early WW2 8th Air Force Logo. Overall condition is very good, with some small areas of moth in the wool and crazing and cracking in the paint, but overall its a stunning example from one of America's most important Army Air Force Divisions of WW2.
