This is a damned good tunic buddy.
Early felt British made Stubby wing 8th Air Force patch.
Distinguished Unit Ribbon on the right breast.
The pilot Has the DFC ( Distinguished Flying Cross ) lots of daring do combat missions.
The Air Medal has 4 oak leafs meaning 40 plus missions.
This guy seen the air war in Europe friend.
The 8th Air Force is highly prized among collectors today.
Here let me help!!!!
I have a love for 8th AF stuff for a personal reason.
Any Name for this set up?????
That visior in PINKS IS AWESOME!!!!!!
Steve the awarding of Air Medal/Oak leafs in the 8th AF was for 5 missions. So 4 bronze oak leaf plus the medal will be 25 completed missions.
BobS a couple of ???. Are there any tailor tabs on the inside on the left breast inside? Or tags in the right lower pockets. Something that beautiful needs to be ID'ed. Also is the visor original to the tunic and if so any names/ info in the sweat band?????
Sorry for all the questions I just have a passion for these
I am not questioning I am just expressing what I have researched extensively .
The Pink cap is a rare bird friend. Very hard to find.
As they say in the south "You cut a fat hog in the a$$" on this deal.
