Temora Aviation Museum
This ceramic thimble is available through the Temora Aviation Museum for AU$4.00 (about US$3.10) plus S/H. The museum is in Temora, New South Wales, Australia, and commemorates the No. 10 Elementary Flying Training School, the "largest and longest lived of the flying schools established under the Empire Air Training Scheme" back in WWII. It was set up to train Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) pilots, and was in operation from May 1941 through March 1946.
