    Great find, and excellent research! I still say finding something like this in the wild is way more rewarding than picking it up at a militaria show.

    Great to know the history attached to this cap. Lt.Paul's tour of duty of course covered the most desperate times for 8th Air Force bomber groups, when the heavy losses caused serious concerns about the strategy of daylight precision bombing.
    I wonder if he flew on one, or even both of the notorious Schweinfurt raids in August & October of 1943? He woudl have just missed "Big Week", the first bombing of Berlin in March, 1944.

    Hi Bob- It does not appear as though Lt. Paul flew either of the Schweinfurt raids. His first mission was August 19, 2 days after the first raid and then in October he flew a mission on the 10th and then not again until about a month later.
