This decal was used on leather B-2 flying caps and leather flying helmets to identify the equipment as 'Army Air Forces'. We have recreated this decal from an original so you can use it on your headgear or to repair an original.
This decal can be used 'as is' as is based on water solvent glue, or you can secure it more firmly with our 'Leather Decal Firm' solution. The originals used an adhesive solution to fix it to the leather.
The last two pictures show original decals used on original headwear.
