Thanks B-Man2
Its all just in the living room of my tiny apartment. but I live alone so it can be the man cave and I can enjoy my collection. if I ever find a girlfriend (or rather, she finds me because I give up on looking) then it will be a must she has an interest in WWII / AAF / RAF... if not, I'll boot her out of my bunk, throw her to the curb and tell her to hitch a ride back to whence she came. :p
I wouldnt lose sleep over it Edward ;)

Edward, she certainly is a most beguiling beauty, but even if you could get your hands onto that time machine, you need to work on a plan to get her to worship the ground you walk on. Could be tricky. Unrequited love seldom ends well.

Got this original ID wallet with two period photos inside of it from 1944 of S/SGT Jay R. Magee of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (a good sense of humor too! *see back of photo)
I haven’t been able to find info on him...

Just received this. I’ve never seen this water slide decal before. Silver in color. Same instructions on the reverse side as the standard A-2 decals and dated ‘44

Sorry but this is not AN6531 Type I aviators by Willson, this civil Willsonite from 50's..
And yes, your collection is amazing!!!
Thanks. Well they don’t say Willsonite they say Willson on the frames but they’re good enough for my display… I’ve since acquired other glasses and 1940s Bausch & Lomb in the original case with paperwork.

Willsonite this is a civil model-trademark of Willson. Willson made AN6531 , they look just like your beautiful Bausch & Lomb, only without branded bends-brackets like from Bausch & Lomb.
