Aircraft recognition cards were created to enable military personnel to recognise different aircraft types. The card used here is a later version where there is a photograph of the aircraft rather than a silhouette.
This bookmark has been created using an original aircraft recognition card as described above. The card has had previous owners who will have used it to learn about aircraft. It will show signs of wear, especially at the edges and may have marks or creases. A dark grey tone grosgrain ribbon has been fitted to help keep the bookmark secure between the pages of your book. The ribbon has been heat sealed to prevent fraying.
The card itself measures approximately 11cm x 8.5cm. The length of the bookmark from the top of the card to the end of the ribbon is approximately 22cm.
An information card is included which can be useful if you are giving the bookmark as a gift and the recipient may not be familiar with this type of ephemera.
Every aircraft recognition card is individual and will depict a different plane or helicopter to those pictured in the photographs. This listing is for a single bookmark.
In the books that I repurpose I often find interesting page markers such as envelopes, train tickets or photographs. These fascinating cards remind me of items like this and make a great gift for a plane spotter. A bookmark is the perfect way for the cards to be enjoyed and useful.
