Thanks Rick, I am sure it pales in comparison to your collection.

Hi Mike. Thanks for posting your stuff! Great. Nice to see something new here!

 

Of course a QAS pack is the best and your Seat type chute!

 

M421a jacket is interesting. I noticed modification like this somewhere before on M426 flight suit. For sure it was done for kind of purpose! Maybe you are right about M592 kit!

 

Thanks again,

Jerry

Im honoured that you would think my collection surpasses this amazing display, sadly it doesnt ?? Im still in the novice stage of WWII aviation collecting and can only dream of having the gear that youve shared here! ?

Small lucky item which I found for my collection: AN6552 jacket.

 

I was looking for a good condition M422a/AN6552 jacket for a LONG LONG time with all small parts not messed like: knits, waistband, zipper, zipper pull, tag, good collar etc.

Named to a 1st Marine Air Wing aviator stationed at Tsingtao China in 1945-49. The nice bonus is inside. The jacket was bought for his wife.

 

Enjoy,

Jerry
