Hi,

I recently picked up a nice WWII navy flight jacket with a painted on it. Can anyone help me ID this please?

Thanks for the reply. Attached is a picture of the jacket.  The contract date is 1942 and since there are no wings on the leather name tag, Im assuming he was not a pilot. The family said they though he was a airplane mechanic. 

 

Im hoping the painted emblem on the jacket leads to which unit or ship he was attached to.  I would like to use this jacket in a public display to honor this vet when things get back to normal. 

 

If anyone has a way to provide any info on the Vet, whos name is on the jacket, that would also prove incredibly helpful 

 

I dont have many navy leather jackets and this is my first with a name and painted "patch".

 

Thanks in advance.
