This auction is for a very nice early-1960's 420th Air Refueling Squadron patch from RAF Sculthorpe from 1955 to 1964. The 420th flew KB-50 and KC-97 tankers and in its final year flew the new KC-135. As part of the 47th Bomb Wing under 3rd Air Force, they provide strategic refueling throughout Europe in the late 1950s & early 1960s. The 420th was finally deactivated in March 1964. This fully-embroidered patch is 4" tall and 5.5" wide, with a gorgeous Disney design of Dumbo the elephant feeding a small tiger (represents a fighter) with a baby bottle. "Heavy" crews usually thought of fighter pilots as babies, hence the bottle!! Great opportunity to increase your collection with this historic piece deactivated over 48 yrs ago, at a low cost! Contact me for shipping costs for international customers.
