RAF 61 Squadron plaque

Code: M23065


W: 17cm (6.7")H: 24.5cm (9.6")


Approximately 17 x 24.5cm.  Wooden shield with a 61 squadron crest.  The King's crown, surround and scroll with squadron motto are all cast in metal and hand painted.  The squadron badge features the famous  lincoln Imp, a figure associated with the district in which it was re-formed in 1937 and where it spent most of its active days in during the war.  The motto at the bottom reads 'Per Purum Tenantes' ( Thundering through the clear air).  The entire badge is hand painted and covered with a disc of clear perspex.  The plaque shows age related wear but is in very good overall condition.  A very nice vintage plaque, not to be mistaken with the more modern mass produced examples.  Stock code M23064.
