My former Dubow looking good!
Also look at the neck hanger thread.Are the collar and epaulets stitched with different colored threads, or has it just faded?
I can attest to 5 Yen coins were used by our RAAF pilots on their flight jackets as part of BCOF (occupation force-japan)Well, can’t say fore sure if all a-2s were issued with pulls or not, as I’ve only had or seen a few with them.it would seem that regardless of whether or not an a-2 was issued with a leather pull, owners stationed in England or Europe often improvised a puller so that they could navigate the zipper with gloves on. One of my favs (mentioned in another thread) is the a-2 that I received with an aluminum ford tool tag attached to the zipper puller. Coins, bells, cord, and all kinds of gee gaws were used as well.
