Another piece I like to say I will die with...not because it won't sell but because I CAN'T sell it...These are the highlights of a full footlocker group to Anna M Scheldorf Underwood, a 12th Air Force flight nurse, recipient of the Air Medal and wife of a Lt. Underwood, Eisenhower's pilot/co-pilot during the latter part of WWII. The neatest part of this set is her A2 flight jacket with a 12th AF medical unit squadron patch, and her WASP jacket used as a flight nurse jacket, with a medical officer shirt size wing worn as a flight nurse wing, with her name engraved on back, perhaps used before the FN wing came out? She wore the pants to this jacket after the war and they are gone, sadly.
She was a little older in WWII, nearly 30, and ended up marrying Lt. Underwood, his service noted above, in Italy I believe. All her uniforms are in the named trunk along with her papers, medals, and etc. A dealer buddy of mine got this from her when she was his neighbor, and I do recall seeing her out doing gardening when I would visit him. I never met her but its a personal connection of a kind at least. I was told she died recently, nearly 100 years old!
Its an unusual set and I thought some of you AAF and WAC and ANC guys might get a kick out of it! I hope you enjoy!
