    Here's an interesting and rare one, a Gallet that (according to Gallet) was issued only to the Tuskegee airmen; this one from a grandfather who was an instructor with them. The colours are reminiscent of the red tails and over-all colour scheme of the P-51. It was called the 'Flying Officer Red-Tail', and even though Gallet had heard about them from Bernard Gallet before his death, no one had actually seen one.
