2164 USAAF B-1 Shearling Flight Trousers - Click for the bigger picture Sold USAAF B-1 Shearling Flight Trousers - An original set with label fitted indicating ‘Property of Air Force U.S.Army’ and manufactured by Perry Sportswear Inc of Newburgh, N.Y. with specification number 94-3085 and A.C.Order nos 4212686 P. The size is marked as Large and the hanging chain is still in place. They are actually in good original condition and the leather is soft and pliable and the shearling lining is sound. They have never had leg pockets fitted. We believe however this set were probably degraded at the end of the war when they came out of service and a knife cut put into into the top right thigh and the braces removed to stop them being re used used ; just one brace strap and buckle remains. We have cemented up the very clean knife cut and they are fine for display and would be ideal on a mannequin. The Conmar zips fitted to the fly and ankles are all original and whilst a little stiff are all functioning correctly. Whilst these are certainly not a mint example we have seen a lot worse and in a scarce large size. A Recent Sale

PC181 USAAF D-1 Mechanics Shearling Jacket by H.Bernstein & Co - Click for the bigger picture Sold USAAF D-1 Mechanics Shearling Jacket by H.Bernstein & Co - This example is complete with its original label and dates from a 1942 contract and is a medium size. While it has clearly had a tough war it comes with an interesting history. We are selling on behalf of the current owner who’s Uncle Maurice served in Burma with the Chindits and in mid 1945 was on the wrong end of a Japanese grenade and took severe shrapnel wounds. Added to this he was suffering from malaria, dysentery and a tropical ulcer and weighing just 7 stone he was invalided back home. He was sent by hospital ship to North Africa but in declining health the crew of a B- 24 took pity on him and offered him a ferry ride home. Due to bad weather they landed at Thorpe Abbotts, where the 100th Bomb Group were serving flying the B-17. While awaiting a lift he was spotted shivering with malaria by a passing USAAF flight mechanic who placed his D-1 over Maurice for the final part of his journey by ambulance. When he finally recovered he tried to return the jacket but found out the owner had been shipped back to the US and was told to keep it. Maurice tried un successfully to contact the GI to thank him for his kindness but failed. The only clue we have to this owner is the name ‘Jeep’ written in yellow aircraft paint on the left breast, we assume the owners nickname. Post war the jacket was used by the current owner for motorcycle use. The zip is a replacement Lightning and a storm flap has been added at some stage and could be a period modification. It has stitch repairs to the right arm and a seam repair to the left shoulder. While it might be possible to restore as a wearer we feel it is better for the new owner to add to a collection and treasure for its remarkable provenance! A Recent Sale

These were issued to the west coast demonstration team which is also embroidered on the back of the garment. The suit is commerically made by Gibson and Barnes and is a Normex IIIA. Size is 38S.

4480 USAAF Roughwear B-3 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture Sold USAAF Roughwear B-3 Flying Jacket - A classic original WWII flight jacket by perhaps the most famous contractor. This example features the classic veg tanned redskin contrast leather and the label confirms the contract no. 42-511D, dating it to 1942. The size is marked as a 40 regular. The zip is a correct specification Talon replacement. Despite the stunning look of this jacket, it has had extensive repairs and while it will make a perfect example in a collection, it is certainly not strong enough to wear. B-3's are getting increasingly hard to find in any condition. A Recent Sale
3892 Tanker Jacket Combat Winter - Click for the bigger picture Sold Tanker Jacket Combat Winter - While these jackets were issued in WWII to all branches of the US Army, it was favoured by the US armoured troops and acquired the nickname 'tanker jacket'. It also managed to find its way to the air force where it was favoured by flight crews, particularly on the P-38 Lightning where it was found to be less bulky than the standard Shearling jackets. This example is an extremely good replica and would appear from the label to date to 1994 and is named to Taderley Clothes. It has a Talon zip fitted in good working order. The khaki cotton shell is in excellent shape as are the knits. The interior lining is very clean. The label is marked 'size large' but we would estimate it is good for a 40"-42" chest. A perfect jacket for the collector, re-enactor or for general every day wear. A Recent Sale
4153 USAAF A-2 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture Sold USAAF A-2 Flying Jacket - A very scarce original WWII issued example. The horse hide leather is in excellent condition and is soft supple with a very nice patina. The waist band is original to the jacket and while it has some minor holes and repairs, it is well above average. The cuff knits are a slightly darker shade of brown and are probably early post war replacements. The original triple marked Talon zip is fitted. There is slight separation to the runner at the base of the zip but seeing it is original, we have decided to leave as it is. The interior fabric lining is in excellent shape with just minor repairs in the collar area. A period patch has also been added and while no label is present, we understand the maker could be Poughaeepsie and would date from around 1942. While the jacket has no sign of a name tag or squadron patch being fitted, the interior lining shows a part of the original owner's name and service number and we are told it was issued to Paul S. Sosovec who was born in 1912 and enlisted in the Army Airforce in Chicago in 1942. This lovely jacket is offered as a collector's item, although we estimate the chest size to be a 40"-42". We would not recommend for regular wear for fear of damaging the zip feed. A Recent Sale
1188 USAAF B3 Flight Jacket - Click for the bigger picture Sold USAAF B3 Flight Jacket - WWII. This original jacket has a great patina and original label confirming contract date 1942. Interestingly, it has a period replacement zip manufactured by Dot and A.M. stamped! Size marked at 36" (92 cm) but seems to fit significantly bigger. We are told this jacket was used on the Monte Carlo Rally in the early 1950's. A Recent Sale
83 USAAF B3/A3 Flying Suit - Click for the bigger picture Sold USAAF B3/A3 Flying Suit - An interesting modified set with the jacket having an additional left zip pocket. Aluminium eyelets have been added to the collar and waist straps. The label has been cut in half, probably done when the jacket came out of service. The original zip has been replaced by a period Lightning example. The jacket and B3 trousers both have a leather tab with painted name R.E.Benedict, who we assume was the original wartime owner and could not doubt be researched. The A-3 flight trousers are nicely labelled to Perry Sportswear Inc. Newburgh, New York. They are fitted with original braces and the leather is in good condition with a period reinforcement patch fitted in the seat area. The main zips are in poor condition and have been sewn closed to enable the suit to be displayed realistically in a collection. We estimate the jacket to be around a 38" chest (97cm), whilst the trousers are marked 40R. A Recent Sale
25 USAAF B-3 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture Sold USAAF B-3 Flying Jacket - An original example with woven label confirming a 1943 contract date and size 40" regular. While this jacket does not have a maker's name on the label, the front pocket shows evidence of a label having been fitted which was a unique feature of Rough Wear produced jackets. This example has clearly had a hard working life and the back panel has numerous repair patches fitted but from the front the jacket displays very well with a good vintage patina. The zip has been professionally replaced with a correct specification Talon. Some repairs to collar but correct straps and buckles fitted. Some thinning to fur lining. A Recent Sale

1608 USN M-422A Jacket - Click for the bigger picture Sold USN M-422A Jacket - or maybe an early G-1? The manufacturer's label is still in place but we can not decipher it - either way, this is an early jacket in excellent condition. The lining has been professionally replaced and the badge is a modern replica; the "Vet" understandably wanted to keep his original squadron badge and name tag. Talon zip fitted and, while the jacket shows some service wear, overall it is in excellent shape. Size is marked at 40" (102cm) but seems to fit bigger. Knitted cuffs and waist band in good condition with USN stenciled behind the mouton collar. A great example of this classic Navy flight jacket. A Recent Sale

We have had the zip professionally repaired with the correct specification Talon example. Hanging strap is absent. A Recent Sale
