    AT THE BEGINNING OF WORLD WAR 2, MILITARY AIRCRAFT CONSISTED OF BI-WING, SLOW, LOW FIRE POWER AIRCRAFT. --- FOR BETTER VIEWING, TAP ON EACH OF THE ABOVE PICTURES, ( FRIENDS OF THE P-39 AIRACOBRA ASSOCIATION ), TO SEE WHY THE BELL P-39 AIRACOBRA WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE WAR EFFORT FOR THE BRITISH ROYAL AIR FORCE, ( RAF ), AND THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE. ----- IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE THAT A MILITARY AIRCRAFT WITH THIS MUCH FIRE-POWER COULD EXIST IN 1940. ( A NORMAL SPEED OF 360, PLUS, MILES PER HOUR ), ( 6 AUTOMATIC MACHINE GUNS AND 1 AUTOMATIC CANNON, ALL CONTROLLED BY ONE PILOT ). ---- AND ----- THIS EXPLAINS WHY KING GEORGE VI, QUEEN ELIZABETH I AND WINSTON CHURCHILL, WANTED THESE AIRCRAFT FOR THE BRITISH ROYAL AIR FORCE, ( RAF ), AND IT'S ALLIES. WITH HITLER'S FORCES ADVANCING ON GREAT BRITAIN, AND OTHER COUNTRIES OF THE UNITED KINGDOM, THE RAF NEEDED ALL THE HELP IT COULD GET AND THEY NEEDED THIS HELP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. ---- SEE PART 2 AND PART 5, P-39 AIRACOBRA BROOCHES, FOR A MORE DETAILED HISTORICAL AND EDUCATIONAL DESCRIPTION AND ACCOUNTING. ---- LAWRENCE DALE "LARRY" BELL, THE BELL AIRCRAFT COMPANY, AND IT'S EMPLOYEES, STEPPED UP TO MEET THE CHALLENGE, PRODUCING APPROXIMATELY 1,100, P-39 AIRACOBRA FIGHTERS, FOR THE BRITISH ROYAL AIR FORCE, ( R.A.F. ) ---- LAWRENCE DALE "LARRY" BELL WAS "ROYALLY RECOGNIZED", IN SECRET, ON 2 SEPARATE OCCASIONS FOR HIS EFFORTS IN DESIGNING, MANUFACTURING AND SUPPLYING THE P-39 AIRACOBRA FIGHTERS TO THE BRITISH ROYAL AIR FORCE , (RAF ). ---- ( THE P-39 AIRACOBRA DIAMOND AND PLATINUM BROOCH, PRESENTED IN 1942 --- AND THE "SILVER" P-39 AIRACOBRA BROOCH, PRESENTED IN 1945. ) -- ( THE PRESENTATIONS WERE HELD IN PRIVATE AND WERE KEPT SECRET, ( NOT MADE PUBLIC ), BY KING PETER II, GODSON OF KING GEORGE VI AND QUEEN ELIZABETH I OF GREAT BRITAIN ( THE UNITED KINGDOM )). ---- BOTH BROOCHES / BADGES ARE PRIVATELY OWNED AND HAVE NEVER BEEN SOLD. --- BOTH BROOCHES ARE LOCATED WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. ---- RESEARCH IS ON-GOING.

      My father was in the US Army building landing fields in England and France during the War. Married my mother in England. I was born there in 46. One story he used to tell was the British pilots landing the planes all shot up and he used to say they were patched up with chewing gum and band-aids and back up they would go!!!
      HEROS ALL!!!!
      Great Postings!!!

      Thanks for posting! Fantastic history of horrific times.
      I read an account of the fabulous brooch and it’s secret presentation not too long ago.

      Yougottahavestuff, that’s great family history; it’s so important to keep those stories alive.
