'Mosquito' Art Work Irvin Flying Jacket
This rare example was issued to a WWII pilot based in Northern Ireland and judging by the art work applied to the back panels, he flew Mosquitos. The Air Ministry frowned on any personalisation of uniforms (unlike the USAAF), and this is the first time we have had an Irvin with original artwork. Sadly the owner's name and squadron is not known. The waist belt has been removed and the jacket has some repairs, so is on offer as a collector's display jacket but a unique example to add to your Irvin collection.
