    Looking for a photo of a Warchid

      During World War II, the International Women's Bowling Congress Leagues across the Unites States held various fundraising campaigns to raise money to purchase airplanes & ambulances for the military.  The campaign was called the Wings of Hope.  They purchased one ground ambulance and three airplanes.  Most of the efforts focused on different types of bowling tournaments, but one of the fundraisers involved selling "Warchids" which were fake orchid corsages made of (I believe) ration stamps.  I am looking for a photo of a Warchid for some research I'm working on related to the history of the women's Bowling Congress.  Thank you!
