Page 111. "Other Ranks - Air." (French: "Les Autres Grades - Air." Note the battledress jacket, we called this the Ike or Eisenhower jacket, they only issued these for a short time in the U.S. Air Force. I saw the older style army Ike jacket in olive drab with the newer USAF chevrons, quite a contrast! Hope that you enjoyed seeing how they saw us overseas.

I'm not sure when the Air Force stopped issuing "Ike" jackets, but they were phased out 31 May 1964. Unless things were different then, in my experience (since '75) the announcement that some item will no longer be authorized is usually about 3 years prior to the phase out date. If it was an issue item, that stops at that time. Question may be, well was the Ike still issued in 1961; or was it an optional purchase by then? Still, I believe we could all agree a whole decade+ is more than a short time.
