    Default Some neat new uniforms

    Hi guys,

    I acquired all of these within the past couple of weeks. Here we have:

    1. An Ike Jacket, dated July 1944 (I'd go check the exact date but the cat is purring comfortably on my lap.), and named to a Sgt. Pederson of the 9th Air Force. It's got a Presidential Unit Citation with a oak leaf cluster, Good Conduct Ribbon, American Campaign Ribbon, Europe/North Africa/Middle East Campaign Ribbon with two battle stars, WWII Victory Ribbon, Ruptured Duck, and Air Corps collar insignia. Best of all, it's a 42R, which is an unfortunately difficult size to find. It fits me nicely. I also found a White Owl cigar wrapper inside of one of the pockets. All I know about the vet is that he was likely from Choctaw, Oklahoma.

    2. An M43 with a worn out and illegible tag. I'm guessing it's WWII. It has lovely 1st I.D. and 2nd Lt. insignia on it. It also has a curious clean bullet-sized hole in the back that goes straight through. I'm not one to speculate, but it does add a bit of mystery. I also found a strange aluminum tag in the right breast pocket. Any ideas on that? This one also fits me.

    3. An named officer's dress jacket. Unfortunately, I left this back home in PA, and I can't remember the name. I tried researching it to no avail. It has insignia for a pilot, and it's a 41R.

    Hi,

    Very nice uniforms there.

    Looks like you already have a good start!

    Your M-43 is great, might be a 370-D or E based on the color. I would guess there is only one button on the neck closer flap.

    Cheers!

    I'd love to own a 1st I.D. M1 helmet to go with the M43. Wouldn't that make a nice display?

    Looks like you have done very well in a very short period.
    That is a nice looking AAF officer jacket. By chance did you get the belt that goes with it?
