  1. I was advised by another member of this site that these vests were not dated but showed up around 1943-1944.

  2. I didn't know about laundry numbers - when I researched that number I was able to find him - with the help of a dry cleaner's tag that is still present on the jacket - John Sandlin. So the duffel bag wasn't his after all! Thanks again - Mark

  4. Great - thank you! Is there any way to tell what era these would have been used in? Mark

  6. Good point - I have no idea where any of these pieces originated. Couldn't find a name in the Class A jacket - just this tag and "S5449" stenciled on the inside yoke. The search continues! Thanks for your help! Mark

  8. Before I put these up for sale I wanted the experts to take a look so I know what I have. They appear to have never been used. I know there are lots of reproductions out there... Thanks in advance - Mark
  9. Funny you should mention researching a name and number - that's what I have been doing this afternoon. Also in the box lot was a 36" long duffel bag that has "US" stamped on it along with a stenciled name (Charles R. Scarpine) and number (AF11641125). Again, I don't know squat about this stuff - does the "AF" mean Air Force? Is the eight digit number a serial number? I've looked at several data bases using the name and serial number and have come up empty.

  11. More good information - thank you! So the Ruptured Duck was a post service patch? Maybe he wore this Class A on the trip back to the States? Army Air Force makes sense as there was a flight suit in the box as well. There was a garrison cap also and the cording on it appears to be Engineer Corp. Did the Army Air Force have Engineers in WWII?
  12. Thanks for the input! Any idea what the four hash marks on the shirt sleeve represent? Mark
  13. These pieces were in a box lot of what turned out to be mostly WWII items. I know next to nothing about the topic - would these be considered a dress uniform? The pants have some moth holes but the jacket and shirt are in very good condition. CBI Theater? Thanks for any insight. Mark
  14. Thanks for all the valuable information! Sorry to hear they are not military issue but...I'll be needing some more help with the dress uniform soon. Thanks again and God bless! Mark
