Hi Burt,
I wanted to post them earlier, but wanted to run out to the airport and get a different back drop than the table! it fits good when I stay around 200-210, but since the Airline has us working from home I added another 12 lbs so I am gonna need to drop some to take advantage of the fall weather coming. Compared to my ELC 48, its just a tad smaller.

Oh Dom :rolleyes:
I’m afraid I’m in that CV 19 Beefy Boy Club as well. The stay at home mentality has me sitting wayyy to close to the fridge.:oops:
Cheers

The Chinese government purchased $250,000 worth of US Navy flying gear, including jackets, gloves, goggles, flight suits etc. for the AVG. The gear was not issued until the AVG arrived in China. Upon arriving in Burma, they wore whatever was available. USN pilots serving in the South Pacific often wore the CBI patch, as shown in this image of aviators of VF-11 Sun Downers aboard USS Hornet in 1944.

Left sleeve is allocated to your current unit generally. The right sleeve for previous combat unit/last unit.. Would be unusual for a mid-war right sleeve patch on a pre war jacket...
