[font "Verdana,Arial,Helvetica"][black][size 2]Hello!

I have just gotten my first original A-2 jacket and has the very wicked Squadron

patch of the 819th Bat OUT of Hell! The 30th Bomb Group!

This B-24 pilot flew missions out of Saipan! And his tunic with 7th Af patch on it!

Wanted to show it and ask some questions!



Thanks

Paul V.

    Now I have been collecting WW2 German for many years and decided to

    start on some very nice AAF stuff and I have been putting together a nice display

    of tunics and such and even have added another great A-2 to show later1



    I am finding this very rewarding and a thrill to have such great historical items

    from some very special Americans in a long ago time but never forgotten!



    What a great site and place to tie in the info with items gotten and hope to learn and show much of these items!



    This A-2 is made by J. A. Dubow MFG. and is a size 38 with original Talon zipper

    with original cuffs and waist band!

    This jacket never had a name tag so the owner is not known but any more info about

    this group or people not already listed here on site is welcomed!



    I hope to find many more great original jackets to buy in future!



    Thanks

    My wife's grandfather was in that unit late 1944 early 1945. LT. E. Chamberlain. He flew B-24 Out of This World B-24J 44-40681 as her 2nd crew.
