A .Douglas Aircraft Co. worker and relative or friend, sent this material to her Son In Service, containing some scarce pins.
It is not totally clear if the worker of the Douglas Aircraft Company family or friend, but she writes to a service men, mentioning his barracks. Our writer is Phyllis, who has simplified brilliantly describing her job at the plant and also provided a most positive attitude about her employment on the back of a company post card showing the Douglas A 24 Banshee.
“Where the X are thats where I work on. I put in the steps in front cockpit & back cockpit & the baggage door & life raft com. (compartment). Im just crazy over the planes. I sure would like to ride in one. Love Phyllis. Marilyn works on the wing where the X is. You can hang this up in your barracks. We have our room just blastered with airplane pictures.” She sent along a company patch (2 3/4″ dia.), with a scarce Douglas Son In Service Pin, and a Douglas plant “Bond- A- Month” pin.
This is the first I have come across these before.
An interesting home front-woman worker’s description of her contribution to the war effort.
