This thread brings up a question...

Since the star was applied to all allied vehicles as an aerial ID to
aircraft,I had heard the Brits were a bit miffed that an obvious US
insignia was being forced on them. To "get their own", they
intentionally put the star on with the star askew.

I don't mean to get flames going over this, I am an American that
collects Brit military. I was wondering if anyone had info to support
this bit of military folk lore.
