US Navy G1 Flight Jacket

Recommended Posts

One of our volunteers donated his father's flight jacket today...it's a nice L. W. Foster Sportswear model; LtJG Anderson served as an anti-submarine warfare officer from February 1961 to May 1965, and apparently used early drones mounted with cameras to look for Soviet subs. The jacket is missing the pocket buttons and has some minor paint residue on the right sleeve but is in otherwise excellent shape. There's also a couple of pictures...you'll note in the one he looks like he's in grade school.

Lovely jacket.

 

Seeing the picture, I'm not really sure that the wrist knits are the original ones. Better to see detailed pics.
