Do you know what Airborne logos are?

In World War II, different military units started identifying themselves with logos. Some of these were even drawn by Walt Disney, who was an ambulance driver in World War I. The Navy asked Disney to draw them a logo for a new ship and soon after, a whole bunch of military units were coming up with their own unique logos.

The logos would be painted on the sides of airplanes and other military vehicles to give a sense of identity to the various units and boost moral. They mainly consisted of cartoon characters.

The ones pictured below (courtesy of Print Magazine) come from a 1943 Army Officers Manual.

For a fun activity, get your Army Defenders Click-A-Brick set and make one of the military vehicles and then draw your own logo for it.
