When I first started looking, I saw low prices and thought WOW I'll be able to put this together at a relatively inexpensive price.
Then I saw the ones for 1K and over and thought OHHHHH those must be the real ones! Then looked at there tags and the cheaper ones and the tag matched. That is when I knew I would need help. I do greatly appreciate the offer for help.
Here is a colorized pic of the Geezil crew when they flew in the Damned Yankee II in March of '44.
Phil is the center bottom row. My uncle Joe is to his right.
Phil told me he wore this the day they were shot down. He said he put on long johns,(thermal underwear) then the blue heated suit, his uniform then what he referred to as looking like mechanic coveralls. That is what he is wearing in this pic. I also asked about his flight helmet. I asked if it was the leather ones ,he said no the tan cloth one with the big black ears. So I think the AN H 15 with goggles, which I have and he mentioned the O2 mask and throat mic. So I picked up a A14 and a throat mic.
