We are currently away on vacation in Tyrol so pictures of my ELC collection have to wait a little...I took the RW 26652 and the M-422a with me though, as the weather was predicted to be rather "not hot"...
Of course it turned out to re "rather warm plus" but I managed to wear the M-422a for an evening dinner on the terrace of our hotel...
(It's a 46L which I got used last year rather cheap...so the fit is not perfect but it has that G&F Label inside :D)

The only branded repro I've bought is this BR ANJ3A, about 20-25 years ago, it was second hand then but had thatonly been worn a few times) and I have only worn it a handful of times, so it's not at all broken in as you can see, It's really thick horse hide.
I was told that only a few of these were made, but have no idea how true that is. Looked a few years back at their catalogue and not there then. I tried looking up ANJ3A in teh search here but unfortunately one can't search using just that, if you add flying jackets it allows search but of course evry mention of flying and jacket comes up, so if anyone has any info I'd be grateful
Cheers and a couple of photos

all of this "show me yours" reminds. me of when the little girl an boy were on a play date. the little boy said to the little girl, "ill show ya mine if you show me yours. the little girl said, uh, sure, ok, you first. the little boy unzips his pants and whips out his kid worm, and says to the little girl, "I betcha aint got one of these, do ya huh?". the little girl ups her play dress and peels down her kiddie panties, and says, " I got one of these, and with one of these, I can get all of those that I want".

There’s a lot of possibilities in this thread so please post any of these you might have . Starting off with an ELC 352nd Fighter Group A2, This is a Monarch contract with parachute riggers interior cargo pockets, installed for added carrying space for maps, survival equipment , or whatever the pilot wanted to carry . I don’t think this was an exclusive addition only to the 352nd Fighter Group or to Monarch A2’s, but they were noted for having this feature added to their A2 jackets .
