Here are some of my newest additions within the last month.

 

First up,

Painted A-2 named to Norman Steiner and was a gunner on a B-17 for the 96th BG 337th BS. Flew 35 combat missions and on the back is painted Terry's Pirates with a nice pin up. Underneath the existing layer of paint is what says "Jalisco" which was what was on the back of his jacket before he had it repainted to his "new" crew. Has seen ALOT of use, and Im sure was worn postwar as alot were.

Two blue backed uniforms and crusher and overseas cap named to Fred C. Manske. He also included his silk survival map that during the war he marked every mission that he flew and the location. There are 16 total.

Next is a blue back grouping belonging to Lt. Robert E. Lee, yes a relative to THE General Lee. His dad was a WW1 pilot and the Great Grandson of General Lee. His grouping came with two crushers and his SSI removed from the cut down.
