Many allied airmen had em.They flew with the 8th airforce while pounding the enemy.They had all sorts of talisman's ranging from rabbits feet to four leaf clovers.To religious artifacts.What would yours be if you required such luck?

As long as the boys who wanted them kept them, and felt safe with them, I'm sure that's all that was necessary. Whether they worked or not was up to the enemy fighter pilots and flak gunners...

Man Imagine sitting in the ball turret and seeing flak clouds burst all around you and you cant do much of anything at all.Thats where the luck comes in!

Have you read that one Megile? Are you aware that the first scene is a plane blowing up and a guy's thoughts as he hurtles towards the big splat waiting below?

Not the sort of omen I want in my plane... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

If I were to actually go into combat it would be the same one I use now on a jobsite.

I actually belive that as long as I have my picture of my girls in my wallet I cannot and will not fall.

Thats all a talism really is, something to belive in. It making sense or logic isn't the point.

A speck of dirt on your windscreen could turn into an enemy fighter in the time it took to look round and back again. A little smear on your goggles might hide the plane that was coming in to kill you.

My wife's picture. Not that I believe it will in any way help me, but it gives me strnght and focuses my mind. Makes me want to come back to her. As for faith, yes, only God decides when and how we're gonna die, so there's no point in loosing sleep thinking if I'll live through tomorrow. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The only "talisman" I have is what's called a "spirit bell" on my motorcycle. A small brass bell that dangles from wherever you want to place it on your bike (mine's on the handlebars), that is supposed to drive away evil luck. Pretty common amongst hardcore motorcyclists.

I personally don't put a whole lot of stock in such things, but then, I didn't remove the bell either http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Bikers are a superstitious lot, I suppose...

My lucky tailsman would be either a roll of $hit paper, or a bible, both are good for the same thing. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
