Shell Ground Crew Service - Military Emblems
In 1942 with the war on and gasoline rationed, Shell Oil and
its gasoline dealers gained a new emphasis on lubrication and
service. 8 squadron emblems were issued as part of a Ground Crew
Service Promotion and were given away to customers and prospects.
The emblems printed on a canvas like material were colorful and
are now quite uncommon. Complete sets are rare since wartime materials
scarcity limited production. The round emblems were approx. 2
5/8" diameter, the ovals 3 1/4" x 2".
Full set of 8 original emblems in near mint condition. (Stock
