The logo was used once again during the Desert Storm Operations by the British military. The logo could be seen on the speakers podium during the British General's briefings. This same logo was applied to the medals awarded to British service personnel who served in Desert Storm.
In other words this logo was given to people who had special status and who were the best in a given field. That is why we are using it, because I think that the Thompson is the Cadillac of the machine gun community. I also think that the Thompson collector is a very special breed of person and we all seem to share a love of the gun and its history, no matter if it is a prototype or a production gun. Let's face it.... if we don't preserve the history who will? So take pride in your association and hobby.
