successful at Rochester show! finds: boxed AN-6530, Corpsman Bag, 1945 Mae West, USN Mk1, and Crew Oxygen Tank (?)

Recommended Posts

Went up to the Rochester show..

was good to see everyone and I found some great stuff!

 

I'll let the pics talk.

 

Is the tank an oxygen tank for crew members like bombardiers etc that needed to move around the plane?

Oxygen tank.. air crew??

Any input would be great I couldn't find much on it.

I found one listed as a B-17 crew tank but not sure if that's correct.

Carl.. thanks for the info on the bottle! I figured it was a "walk around" bottle.

 

Thanks for the comments, guys. I was happy to find this stuff.

The boxed goggles I was very surprised to see... not sure I've ever seen the box for a set, let alone a boxed set.

 

The corpsman bag was had for a very, very fair price. The markings on it are still excellent.

 

This show was mainly a "USN" and "Aviation" haul for me.

didn't find any TR stuff (that I was willing to buy) besides a 1944 dated box of German 9mm ammo.

I actually have the same box for the AN6530's , marked , as this type of box is, for USN issue goggles

 

That bottle is real nice buddy !! god im jealous at all that gear you guys find over there in the US !!

The only thing better for me would have been if the vest had USN markings!

The inflatable jungle air bladder that came in a USN flight group is army marked.

The vest will still work perfectly for my flight suit/helmet mannequin that I am planning.

 

A lot of the stuff the USN used was marked for AAF anyways it seems.

Great price on your vest as well.I have a near identical one from a local Marine pilot along with goggles and unissued flight caps.He flew off Guadalcanal early in the war.Returned state side and later transitioned into

Corsairs.The his vest has the AN (Army/Navy) designation on it.Several years ago his helmet with Hawley liner sold on ebay.It was named to him.several of his items were gifted to a nephew as well.He had called me and was meeting me to sell his 45 auto pistol and holster with belt he was issued in 1941.When we met he decided to give that away too.Was a awesome set.

dang Ron.. sounds like quite the find there. Would have been nice if you could have picked it all up.

Flight stuff is always easy to get excited about IMO.

 

I did get a great price on the vest I have to thank Craig (oldabewla) for that!
