    Default USAAF Flying Jacket

    Got this jacket yesterday. I'm quite pleased with it as I think its interesting, it appears to be a D1 ground crew jacket which has been personalised and used by a pilot. The label is incorrect, as it is for a pair of trousers. It has a hand made name patch sewn to the front, and a hand painted musical note 'G' on the sleeve, which is the owners initial. Its well used with many old repairs. The label manufacturer is US but it has English zips, like some other USAAF jackets I have seen.

    Shown here with other USAAF aviators uniform and equipment. Any comments welcome. Doug

    I would be sooooo tempted to wear it! Congrats! Quite a few anomalies with this piece.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Beautiful Bomber Crew flight gear!!!!
    You have the whole kitten caboodle!!
    You even have the walk around bottles.

    That is a fantastic collection.
    Someday I'll be there. Bucket list!!

    That is odd that it has the trouser tag in the jacket.

    So do you know who he flew with?

    Thanks for the comments. Sadly I dont know who he flew with. I imagine there was more than one Lt G Cook in the USAAF.
