got some nice stuff!  

There were some good deals to be had on US stuff, plenty of too-high priced stuff as well if you wanted to go that route.  ;)

 

1st is a 13th Bomb Squadron patch (already posted in the correct section to try to see if US made or Australian, I'm not sure)

this picture of a pilot probably either in training or just out of training..

not sure if anyone can tell if USN or USAAF?

I am not well-versed enough on anything shown in the photo to tell.

He didn't find much...  it's hard to find stuff when you have two of everything already. ;)

 

was looking specifically for a set of Brit made Warrant Officer collar brass to complete a uniform.. and didn't find a set.

 

Wise was he to wait.

Thanks guys I was thinking Navy too on the pilot but I wasn't seeing anything that let me know for sure.

The CIBs were at very fair prices as well so that's always nice!

There was a lot of good stuff at the show for nice prices, you just had to do a lot of looking.

Air Corps, he is wearing a B-6. You can see the collar strap on his right side.

Thanks! Once I saw it I knew I had to have it. Apparently US made to answer that earlier question. I am becoming infatuated with ww2 squadron patches.

And thanks Ray for the service branch ID on the photo.

Owen,

there was a lot of stuff there.. lots of field gear it seemed.  Saw a MINT denim seabag with 1942 dated tag.

FJ or FD camo smock, some other uniforms and jackets etc.. 

Lots of patches.. a bunch of guns too when usually there aren't many at this one (there is a gunshow going on simultaneously next door).

 

Basically a lot of everything it just took lots of digging to find any gems at great prices.

Actually, a B3. The second collar strap is subdued within the dark shadow, collar is way too thick and big for a B6. Also, a few comrades of mine mentioned the stitching on the sleeve, shiny surface of the sheepskin, and Conmar Zipper. Nevertheless, still AAF.
