Once again the Cleburne, TX show was good for me! I picked up a nice uniform for a Reserve Military Aviator 1st Lieutenant assigned to the 3rd Air Park:
British-made bullion RMA badge. The wing badge is deeply padded, with at least five different types of bullion and a double border around the shield. I especially like the gold bullion highlights in the shoulders!
The uniform has wonderful European-made collar insignia (probably French), velvet 3rd Air Park shoulder sleeve insignia, bullion 1st Lieutenant Bars, 2 overseas chevrons, honorable discharge chevron and Interallied Victory Medal ribbon with one bronze star. Close inspection of the photo on the right shows the pilot appears to be wearing this particular uniform. The uniform is a larger size and he was evidently fairly tall. The only negative is the dime-sized tear you can see in one sleeve.
The uniform was tailored on "Sackville Row" in Piccadilly London
The uniform also came with his pants, an issue-type flight helmet, and a Sam Browne belt.
The 3rd Air Park was a small organization but unfortunately the name written in the jacket does not seem to match any name on the unit roster in Gorrell. The uniform itself doesn't really show any signs of being put-together though. He may have been a late arrival? A number of the photographs that came with the uniform mention locations in occupied Germany as well. At any rate, I am pleased.
