• World War II in Color


    The "Fifinella" Patch (aka Fifi) was the patch of the Army Air Force Flying Training Detachment worn by the WASP female pilots during WW2. This official mascot was designed by Walt Disney, who kept the copyright. Fifi went to war and was worn in the form of both leather and cloth patches.
