Was very fortunate to be able to acquire this set to to Lt. Col. Harlan B. C/r/o/w/d/e/r. His post-war shade 84 uniform with custom sewn ribbon bars and senior pilot wings by Meyer.
Included is his hat (which needs to be cleaned) as well as pants, and his briefcase.
I was able to find some articles on him online as well as info from the previous owner.
He was a U.S. Army Air Corp. pilot who flew C-47's in the China-Burma-India Campaign of WWII. So of course, once I found that out, I had to have this set.
I have some newspaper clippings I found as well that show him being awarded his DFC and his BS.
I hope you enjoy it and if any one can nail down what unit he was in - that would be super helpful. It was the 10th AAF in the CBI theater.
Also, what is the ribbon on the bottom row with 4 oak leafs?
Thanks for looking!
