AAF Collection

Article about: Thanks guys, the cootie bugs were a group similar to the VFW I think, Ask Rich A I know he has more of the stuff.

    Default AAF Collection

    I decided to make a smaller thread about my AAF stuff since my general collection thread is to broad, and I am beginning to specialize in AAF. My biggest starting intrest in the category was my great Grandfather as discussed. Here is my head gear so far, All originals except the Mae West, B-8 oxygen mask, and the clear set of AN-6530 goggles.

    Some patches, I can not find where I put all of them... (The Cootie patch was my Great Grandfathers that is why I put it with "AAF" items)

    I used a medium brown shoe polish - but very sparingly - to cover some
    rough or worn spots. Unless it's hard and brittle, leave it be.

    Looks to be in great shape.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.
