Instilling the lethal skills necessary to operate and fly the B-25 Mitchell during the chaos of combat was the premier objective of the 473d Bombardment Squadron replacement training unit. These special instruction troops were large training cadres deployed to drill combat crew members before being posted forward, in actual, combative operations supporting Americas war effort.
Aeroplane Apparel Company is honored to showcase the official squadron patch of the 473d Bombardment Squadron. It depicts the endearing squadron mascot, Bomby, a burly beast of a big black bear, sitting astride a dropped bomb, canted downward and whistling straight toward its intended target foe, far below. Bomby, sporting a red flying cap and aviation goggles, is handily delivering Americas ordnance of fury, with the dogged determination that brought the USA to ultimate battlefield victory.
