    Default RCAF Jacket Identification/Value

    Hello all,

    I've had this jacket tucked away in the closet for some time. It was given to my uncle many years ago for a veterans day production by a drama a group. That's about the extent of what I know about it, and now it's time for me to pass it on.

    I'd like to learn what it is and what a fair asking price is so I can go about listing it properly.

    Any feedback is appreciated, as always, so thank-you for your knowledge in advance!

    Apologies for any blur, I haven't got a proper camera at present.

    The stamp reads :
    RITCHIE: FARBER & CO.
    LIMITED
    TORONTO - 1943

    The sizing info says:
    26| 5'11 & 0|26
    38-39

    It is a WW II RCAF Sergeant Bomb Aimer Service Dress Jacket. The sleeve eagles indicate home service so if not an instructor then on a coastal patrol type aircraft like a B-24 used by #10 Bomber Reconnaissance Squadron give the 1943 manufacture date. It is missing the belt. It is a nice clean example but not too valuable though, expect to ask around $125-150.00 USD.

    Walkwolf - thank you for that correction, I've edited the post

    asterperious, thanks for the information! I've heard that there's a hat around somewhere for it, too, though I've never seen it.
    Super cool to know what it is after having it around for so long :P
