Liverpool Free State Aircraft Insignia

Given the disperate nature of the Liverpool Free state airforces it is some miracle they have all agreed to use a Liverpool Tricolour fin flash on their tails. The exception is the ‘acquired’ Catalina seaplane te Bette Davis whose disinct line and unique aircraft type means it carries no insignia (see specific posting on her and her crew for more details http://wp.me/pRURp-7m.)


As for their fuselage and wing markings there is no unity there. Soem more co-operatively minded pilots also put Liverpool tricolour colours on their wing tips (red on the outside edge) but the indivudal squadrons adopt their own roundels and other insigina. For more on the various squadrons please look at the Aviator seeds post earlier http://wp.me/pRURp-7d .

People’s Fleet Air Arm


Basic Liverpool PFAA Roundel


Some Naval pilots adorn this with either a Liverbird or an anchor in yellow at the centre of the Roundel which appears on the wings and body of their planes. The noses of Naval planes are frequently adorned with revolutionary slogans and cartoons. To further distinguish their planes from the two tone camoflagued RAF , red & white National League of Airmen and black Falcon Legion planes the PFAA has adopted a Navy blue paint scheme for bombers and plane light grey for fighters.

Wild Geese Squadron

These Irish and Irish American aircraft are painted a seagreen which matches the Irish Free State uniforms they wear. As well as the Star roundels which are just on the upper and lower sides of  their plane’s wings tend to feature sexy pin girl nose art which matches their swaggering style.

People’s Volunteer Squadron

The dour khaki aircraft of the Soviet equipped (and largely manned) PVS carry simple red stars on the body and wings of the craft. They are not permitted any other adornment.

Flying Circus as a player unit I’ll be letting players have free range when designing the insignia for their craft.  Gods help me. (Thansk to members of the Gentleman Wargames parlour for tips on dogfightign rules)
