That there was......but The Brass were the "gentlemen of means" who dictated the grooming standardsThere were plenty sergeant pilots in the Royal Air Force.
HiThanks for the quick turnaround, will definitively consider.
I've got one of these in storage. Bought off eBay many years back from someone who couldn't translate sizes. Probably a 42, not a 44.
Hello, I also had the same questions about a painted or patched non A2 jacket. JG3 Sturmgruppe had a set of “eyes” painted on their left breast. Their attack on enemy aircraft was held back until they could “see the whites of their eyes”. Here is Uffz Vivroux, Lt Unger and Lt Mueller. It’s possible Ungers sleeve rank is also painted on. I’m still searching for more pics. Best, Bill BourqueGood question;
the only “ decorated” jackets worn by LW pilots, I saw in photos were US AAF B-3 and one A-2. Never saw a decorated ( non AAF jacket ) on a WW2 LW pilot.
