Marine Operational Training Squadron 81, MCAS, Cherry Point (1943 Feb to 1945 Dec):

 

Decal on masonite designed at Disney Studios, decal roughly 9.5 x 9.0 inches.  Very nice!  In Millsteins, described as silk-screen on aircraft fabric, which I have never seen.  Only the decal have I encountered.  Sometimes decals have been mistaken for silk-screened designs.  Perhaps that is the case here...any comments or info, threw 'em on.

Looks real to me , only thing in question is it not having the "Disney" copyright on it , but they may have been done that way .

Hi Johnny,

 

A good point to bring up.  With regard to the decals used by the USMC aviation squadrons in WWII, no Disney signature/copyright is present.  In fact, it is rare to find any lettering on these decals.  Here, the MOTG-81was applied because it was a training unit and stateside.  

 

regards,

pat

This design appeared in the March 1944 issue of Walt Disney's Comics & Stores, Volume 4, No. 6.

Thanks Thor. i just love my hobby and I love sharing my knowledge. I meant to add the item in this post was up on eBay not too long ago. Not sure if it sold.

 

BTW, the companion gallery-style website for my book Service With Character should be finished very soon. The site will showcase hundreds of items from my collection.
