Thanks for posting pics of this unique item. It is all the more interesting to me as I own Wallace Johnson's flight helmet.

Those plotting boards are not very easy to find. And including all docs and maps from an operation theater and more, belonging to an ace, it's a superb stuff!

Hi Jerry

Here is my latest acquisition. failing to read the date correctly, I would like to know if you have any information about this number of contract : NOa(s)-3196 ?

 

It is complete with canopy. I was looking for a very long time since I already had the harness.

This contract was awarded in early 1944 and completed in 1944. I suspect that's your primary question. NOa or NOA prefixes are quite common this just means the contract was drafted and negotiated by the BuAer but funded by the BuS&A. It is also a Limited contract meaning it cannot be renegotiated finalized with a fixed price and specific quantity. The little s in parenthesis stands Supplies.

What is strange both legs are modified. A knife for each leg!

 

 

Soo two knife's pockets on each leg? Wow!

 

Try to find a MKI knife. The MKII looks too big for me?

Jerry
