World War II Decals

Here is an interesting post from Dull Tool Dim Bulb.  It is a series of circa 1940 paper decals.  They were intended for application on uniforms, helmets and foot lockers.  This particular decal appears to be for an Eagle Squadron, which were squadrons of fighter pilots in the R.A.F. formed from volunteer U.S. pilots in the early days of World War II, before the U.S. joined the war.
