U.S. Army Air Force Tyndall Field Cushion Cover

In WWII USAAF gunners were trained as part of the flexible gunnery training program devised in 1941 and Tyndall Field in Florida received its first recruits in December 1941 as about the same time as the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbour. Our cover was clearly purchased as a souvenir by a gunner who trained at Tyndall and probable sent it home as a gift to a loved one. It is embossed with naive pictures of fighter aircraft and at the bottom gunners in action operating.50 cal Brownings, the work horse of choice in many USAAF heavies. In fine original condition and a rare survivor. Measures 20" x 20" (50cm x 50cm)
