Is there a list somewhere here of B-15/B-15A manufacturers?
As i have been reliably informed , the book "FULL GEAR" has a list of "known" contracts for jackets and flight suits .
I have a full list of contracts awarded by the US goverment for the war effort from 40 -45 . Albeit any contract over $50k in value .
Any contract less than that amount was deemed as not important .
Thanks for the information. My "Full Gear' copy is long gone.
Thats a shame Don .
Im in desperate need of a copy or scans of a few pages of it !
Mrchina , i know of a few contracts for the B15 , i would be surprised if it was the full list though , but it might help ?
The information you provided is very helpful. Thank you very much, I appreciate it.
Update on the previous list Don ,
Thanks for the updated information. I did come across a list of B-15/B-15A makers on this forum and for the life of me, cannot find it again. My coconut is unclear this morning.
I just received some scans of the FULL GEAR book data sheets on the B15 and B15a . Im sure member Roughwear will have posted them somewhere ?
I don't believe it was Andrew (Roughwear) although he did post a B-10 maker list which is very helpful.
Roughwear also made B-15A’s, and I don’t mean Andrew !
Correct Peter !, i have one actually , that needs a new zip !!
I had one myself a number of years ago.
Here are the lists from Full Gear for B-15 jackets/A-11 trousers and B-15a jackets and A-11A trousers.
I am sure Carl can add the production dates, quantities and costs from his contract resource sheets.
Thanks for posting the additional information.
I have been through these contracts briefly , most of the numbers shown are order numbers not contract numbers .Maybe with a little bit of deduction order numbers could possibly be married up with contracts .
Ill make it my job this weekend to delve deeper into this for you .
I have now found the contracts and figures etc on the B15 's A11's in the FULL GEAR list.
Now working on the B15a list
So thats the B15 and B15a lists 99% complete , there could be some anomally with either the FULL GEAR list or my US Govt list .
