Let the research begin !
I was going to try and corrolate all the contract info into one document for publishing , that was my goal anyway .
The A2's have been more than compensated for , and thought that other items needed to be properly accounted for where possible .
Obviously , there are a lot more clothing items to be accounted for D1's B6's B7's and flight suits .
This book is my only source of information that can unveil the contract information i have . The contract lists i have , hardly ever mention TYPE , only a description e.g. Jackets trousers flying , winter suits .

Thankyou @Grant

A couple there I’ve not heard of before-Phillips Tanning and Clothing Co., and Sovereign Chicago. Anyone ever seen a jacket by either of them?
And thanks to Grant and Mituhiro-san.

Thats the A10 gloves wrapped up !!
Now the B3's , I can for sure confirm contract details for 8 of those listed with a 535 -AC prefix . I have also found 2 more contract #'s that can/could only be B3 's but unlisted in the FULL GEAR book , Any one of those jackets that shows the letter "P" or "AF" could have come from the contract #'s that are known makers im sure . Any of the other contracts that i cant find details for i only presume that they were for a value less than $50k , thus being deemed of no importance to the war effort .

Thanks for the

B6 and B7 next ;) :rolleyes:( just to double check that it was only Aeroleather that had contracts for the B7 )

According to Aota, 6 contracts, all from 1942. The AAC must've been freezing their asses off in the Aleutians in '41 so someone put in the order with Aero!

Thanks Grant !! Im more inclined to think that there were only 2 contracts . AC 25501 and AC 27058 , the remaining are purchase order #'s from these 2 contracts . The values of the 2 contracts is quite surprising and would back up my thinking regarding the purchase order idea .
Basically the combined value of 25501 and 27058 are $1million .

The info i that book is priceless to me in regards to working out what contract was for what item . As you will appreciate from the screen shot below , the item description that i have is pretty vague to say the least !!! "Jackets Trousers " !!:D
