    Default USAAF Equipment display

    Hello, here is a selection of USAAF equipment from my collection, representing some of the items used on American aircraft in England, 1942-1945. It includes some RAF items as was typical, and not all these items would necessarily have been used together at the same time, the green oxygen bottle for example being introduced at the very end of the war.

    Nice group of items there, a good cross section. Especially like the crusher. Is it a "flighter"? Still looking for one myself so some close ups would be appreciated.
    Cheers.

    Hi Rob, thanks for that. The Crusher is by Dobbs and named to Flight Officer J W Klap. Here are some more pictures.

    Great items, beautifully photographed........!

    ( FYI- you need to place the second leather chinstrap - the one with the metal
    buckle - at the rear of the officer's cap. There is a hook back there for it.
    Looks like the front one has been reversed at one time ! )
