  2. Gentlemen, Thank you very much for Your comments.
  3. Gentlemen, Thank you very much for your comments. I hope to post the two unifoms once I've completed the restoration.
  4. Dear fellow collectors, I recently acquired two beautiful WWII AAC uniforms thanks to members of this forum. Trying to restore the uniforms, I have two questions: 1. One of the officers is listed in official AAC documentation as Bombardier/Navigator. In his last mission, during which he was killed, he was listed as the Navigator.

  11. Hello all I picked up this raider patch along with the paramarine patch recently. I wanted to get opinions about the authenticity of this patch. Patch does not glow, the white stitching seems to be yellowing and is very flexible, not stiff. I would appreciate Any assistance. Thanks.
