Well Used Korean War B-5 Life Vest 4th FIW 337th FS Marked


Recommended Posts

Here is a cool item I got as a freebie in a auction a few years back. This B-5 Mae West is marked to the 4th Fighter Group and 337th Fighter Squadron. It is date stamped from 1949 through the 50's. You can tell it has been well used. I don't really collect items from the Korean war, but could never bring myself to sell it. I just liked it too much. Anyhow, here are some photos.

 

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

That's nice. I have items that I really don't collect but came upon that I can't let go either.

I have a blue flight suit that would go well with that. Then one would want a helmet, boots, ....... It would never end!
