Disney And The OSS

First time I've run across this one - a Disney design for a patch for the OSS OGs (Operational Groups) operating behind enemy lines in the style of all the patches they designed for ships, flying squadrons, the SeaBees (CBs), the WASPs, etc.

Donald looks like me at six with my Erector Set and airplane models.

I will have to find it. But Disney made over at least 1200 insignias. I remember The Flying Tigers. Saw a, I think History Channel show over it.

VERY cool!

I was just reading about the Greek OG NOT having a unit patch....I guess they can lay claim to an overall OG patch done by some Disney Pros.

I've not seen that one, either. I wonder how much, if any, it was actually used. For instance, the 463rd PFAB had a Disney designed patch. A couple of dozen were made just before the unit left Rheims for Bastogne. A couple of guys got one before they left. The rest were left until "they got back." So only a couple were "issued" and maybe one is still around. Thanks, Richard

Some of my favorite cartoons growing up were the war propaganda ones, especially Bugs Bunny dealing with gremlins. Its rather sad they no longer show those. On this topic I did a bit of research and found some decent sites with info. Some contain pictures, mostly of USAAF units, using the designed insignias.

Your second link shows a black cat under canopy under the heading, "Paratroopers." This was originally the insignia of the 503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment. The 2nd Bn, 503rd was sent to England in 1942 to train with the British 1st Airborne Div. they then participated in the first U.S. airborne operation of the war, Operation Torch, the invasion of North Africa. While the Bn. was in flight to North Africa, it was redesignated the 509th Parachute Infantry Bn. The below insignia is my motheaten British-made example of a Disney design. While it is fact a 503rd patch, it is a defacto 509th insignia.
