The Gremlins: a Royal Air Force Story by Flight Lieutenant Roald Dahl

The Gremlins: a Royal Air Force Story by Flight Lieutenant Roald Dahl

Today is Roald Dahl Day, a day to celebrate the achievements of this prolific writer. Dahl would have been 95 years old today. And to celebrate, I thought I would take a look at The Gremlins, the first children's book Dahl in 1943 while he was still in the Royal Air Force.

Fifinella was a female gremlin designed by Walt Disney for a proposed film from Roald Dahl's book The Gremlins. During World War II, the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) asked permission to use the image as their official mascot, and the Disney Company granted them the rights.

... the Gremlins at it again! Few people realize that Roald Dahl flew Hawker Hurricane fighters in the RAF's battle with the Luftwaffe in Greece. He was rather badly banged up in a crash landing and during the subsequent R & R he was sent to the USA and Walt Disney to launch the GREMLINS.  Some of Dahl's stories tap into his wartime experience. Great stuff, all.  Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Gremlin. It sounds mythological, like “gargoyle” or “griffin,” but it’s not. The Royal Naval Air Service created “gremlin” as recently as WWI, and jokingly used it to refer to little creatures that could cause mechanical problems in aircraft. Roald Dahl popularized the phrase in his book, The Gremlins: A Royal Airforce Story. Thank goodness he did — otherwise the masterpiece Gremlins movies might never have come to be.
