Description: “Gloria Lyons” adorned four different New Zealand Air Force aircraft. The first three
were P-40 Kittyhawks and the fourth was an F4U-1A. Gloria Lyons was a nineteen year
old New Zealand girl with tuberculosis and pen pals with members of the No. 4 Servicing
Unit in the Solomon Islands. The unit decided to make her their mascot and added her
name to the engine cowling. The first two P-40s as well as the F4U-1A were destroyed
but the third P-40N, NZ3220 survived the war. The real Gloria Lyons overcame her
tuberculosis.
