7th Fighter Squadron embroidered felt patch

The 7th Pursuit Squadron was activated on 15 July 1941, designated the 7th Fighter Squadron in 1942, and assigned to the 49th Fighter Group.

Originally based at Selfridge Field, Michigan, the squadron moved to Melbourne, Australia, in early 1942.  Its pilots shot down 5 enemy aircraft in its first aerial action over Horn Island. The squadron's bases followed America's march north from the Solomon Islands as it was based in New Guinea and the Philippines.

Pilots from the 7th flew the hottest aircraft in the Army Air Forces including the P-35, P-40, P-47, P-38, and P-51.  Today the squadron is designated the 7th Combat Training Squadron, providing qualification training for F-117A stealth fighter pilots.

We've embroidered the Bunyip, an Australian aboriginal mythical creature, on yellow wool felt.
