Before the LBC, this was the earliest version of a certificate issued by the 8th AF for completing 25 missions. I have only seen 2 of these and they are from 1943 and signed by General Eaker

Hi guys, here are 3 of mine.

For the 390th BG, I have a Certificate of Participation which design differs from the classic Lucky Bastard diploma

 

There were also the same type of Diploma in the 15th AF in Italy but I'm note sure they were denominated "Lucky Bastard Club"

Here is a "Lucky Bastard Club" for the 446th BG/707th BS which doesn't mention the name of the airman.
