Code: SOLD-1009

SOLD

'Jacket, Enlisted Men's, Flight, Type B-14'. By W & Clothing Co. Size 38. Technically a flight jacket but essentially an 'Ike' type jacket that preceded the 'Ike' and was unique to the AAF. Standardized for use by enlisted air crewmen in March 1944. Similar in appearance to an 'Ike' and manufactured in olive drab wool (Shade No.54). It has concealed breast pockets (with exposed flaps) and midriff slash pockets. This example has a nice machine made 9th AAF shoulder patch and Sterling marked AMICO cluch-backed aircrew wing, screw backed 'U.S' and winged prop collar insignia. Also fitted with staff sergeant rank stripes and a 'ruptured duck' discharge patch. Fully AAF marked label and fading AAF stamp. Named. Overall condition is excellent - clean and with no apparant moth damage at all. These jackets are now extremely rare to find. Don't miss this super example. Stock code U17818.
