Hello,

 

The cap is at home now 😉 ! ...

...and has found it's place with a HS-33 headset and USAC D1 type sunglasses !

 

I would like to thank Aznation for all the investigative work he made but now that I have the cap with me I am wondering if the "C" before "1267" is not a "T"... 😬

 

Information I got from the seller : it was a pilot's cap who flew B-17s in Europe and then late in the war was assigned to the Pacific where he flew the B-29 Super Fortress...

If the story the seller told you is true. All the information provided stating that Both officers with the letter C and 1267 became POW's. Then they would not have been transferred to the Pacific to fly B-29's.  So maybe it is a "T"

It's a T-1267 that's marked on the cap for sure and the cap belonged to Chester P. Tracewski.

Strong work Mr. Matt!

Thank you Dave.  I appreciate it.  Whether it had belonged to any three of those men it would've been great.  At least it's been pared down to one.
