walika Posted March 26, 2017 Share #1 Posted March 26, 2017 VF-15 "Satan's Playmates" WWII The squadron was established on 1 September 1943 and disestablished on 20 October 1945. On 20 June 1944 while deployed on the USS Essex, the squadron participated in the "Marianas Turkey Shoot" where Air Group 15 (AG-15) commander Cpt David McCampbell shot down 9 Japanese aircraft. These patches included in a lot attributed to Arthur Singer, Jr., double ace with 10 victories, which included these patches, a photo and sweetheart letter. I'm posting this to show the vague similarity of this squadron's insignia with VF-13, posted earlier today, at http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/287211-vf-13-black-cats-wwii-pilot-grouping-with-3-patches/ . Silkscreened on canvas (above, wings 4-1/2" across) and leather (below, wings 4" across). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
