614 Bomb Squadron Mounted Plaque
Manufactured in cast brass, featuring a devil's head, horse shoe and falling bomb and with an enamel 8th Airforce plaque above. It is mounted on a pine backboard. Below is a nicely engraved plaque named to 614th Bomb Sqn. 401 St Bomb GP (H). The 8th Airforce B-17's were based at Deenethorpe, England from November '43 to April '45. The reverse of the board carries information on the 401 Bomb Group and the 614 Bomb Squadron. We have no idea of age, but would imagine this has been made up post war. Board measurements are 14" x 11" (36cm x 28cm).
