Hi All, Hi Jerry,
yes, I saw myself doing the USN pilot because I think this area of collection is much richer in terms of equipment which the AAF.

In France it is very difficult to have the NAF, he takes a patient to make a complete USN pilot.

I hope my photos will be able to please some you!

Hi Jerry
I have some USAAF/USAF ANB-M-C1 mics with those kind of red label on the plug. The only way that I personally distinct USN mics from USAAF/USAF is that the USAAF cable is longer than USN.
Nice collection! :thumbsup:

Laurent, fantastic stuffs! But it is better when I see them in your house! ;)

Super pictures of your WW II Naval Aviation collection, some really rare items. I'm a new member and will send more pictures of my WW II U.S. Naval Aviation Collection when I downsize them more but here is a picture of my WW II Navy Fighter Pilot Mannequin which has a WW II USS Yorktown Seat Pack Parachute displayed on it and the seat pack is stenciled VF-5 in 3 places on it. I have better pictures of the parachute that are closeup but I might have to downsize them too before I send them. The Goggles are MK II Pilot Navy issued Goggles and the shoulder holster is USN marked and WW II dated and the gun is the super hard to find US Navy marked Smith & Wesson Victory Model 38.
