Heros of North Africa and Italy-the 87th Fighter Squadron
The 87th Fighter Squadron, part of the U.S. Army Air Corps' 79th Fighter Group, contributed mightily to Allied efforts in the Mediterranean theater of operations during WWII. The 87th entered combat in 1943, assisting the British drive across Egypt and Libya by escorting bombers, attacking enemy ships, and providing close air support to beleaguered friendly ground forces. For those operations, the 87th Fighter Squadron flew the P-40 Warhawk, but they upgraded to the larger and more capable P-47 Thunderbolt (affectionately known as "the jug") in time for the drive to Rome in 1944. For the conspicuous gallantry they displayed in combat, the 87th Fighter Squadron earned two Distinguished Unit Citations.

This t-shirt from the Aeroplane Apparel Company features the emblem of the legendary 87th Fighter Squadron. Their logo consists of a sharp-nosed mosquito in full pilot regalia, carrying a submachine gun, diving out of the clouds towards the hapless enemy below. The 87th's emblem signifies the persistence with which they carried out their daring low-level attacks. Unlike real mosquitos, the pilots of the 87th were much more than an annoyance to their foes.
