USN/USMC Flight School Jumper - Made by Wilson

Recommended Posts

I have had these two jumpers in my collection for a number of years, came straight from the estate of a USMC dive bomber pilot. Was never sure exactly what they were.... saw a listing on eBay that they were worn during Navy aircrew training. The listing had a picture of aircrew allegedly engaged in survival training. Any idea if this is accurate? Any other uses or info out there? Thanks so much.

I would say that they are issued like a warm up jacket or part of a PT suit worn much like the blue demim items for a work fatique.I have a Brit made top that is similar from a 17th Airborne vet who was a medic.He said they were issued them in England for PT/training.He wore his he stated in Belgium as a sweater under his field jacket during the Bulge when it was cold.It has a light wool lining.

Thanks buddy! I figured they were something along those lines... he didn’t use them much, one is stone mint and the other lightly used.
