Hawkeyes Patch

In stock


“This is our 26th photo Recon Sq. Insignia 

as designated by our 6th Photo Recon Group
Headquarters for six squadrons. The blue
background of the diving hawk is for our
squadron. Other colors: orange, green, blue,
red, and white backgrounds were assigned to
others of our squadrons. As a group we were
known as the ‘HAWKEYES’. A plane in flight
could be identified as the insignia was painted
on the tail booms of our P-38s. A crashed plane
on the ground could be quickly identified by the
color background of the diving hawk.”
