Details........Details

Prior to the advent of all-color photography in the Squadron/Signal books, I determined that it was important to show various details in the form of illustrations. Unless otherwise noted, most are small illustrations, averaging 6" in width. Also note that some illustrations with multiple elements were "pasted up" by the art department and will have some irregular borders. (All before the digital age eliminated such aesthetic crimes!)
