Naval Aviator's pencil flare


Recommended Posts

I recently found these survival pencil flares.

 

The pencil is marked US Navy BUWEPS MK31 MOD 0. Projector signal, surface. Lot #86 TESCO 12-67-104. Made by the Eastern Specialty Co.

 

I think they were made in 12-67.

Very cool, I just got a complete navy set still in the original packaging, with the whole USN survival vest with medical kit, general survival kit, and USAF survival knife. All 1967 dated. Was told it was a Marine pilot's vest.

Just picked up an SRU-21/P Aviators Survival Vest with these flares marked DOM 12-72. Vest is 100% complete (except for S&W .38 cal) with working PRC-90 in what looks like new condition and working strobe with original battery.
