Thank you for clarifying that I must admit, my mind was a bit hazy on recollecting the details on the Werber - the jackets had all been stored away for a while while I made several home moves - and it’s only now that I have dug them all out again....Somewhere, I still have two A2s and an original Irvin - as well as some repro jackets..1952, or thereabouts. The Werber that produced this contract was the same that had four A-2 contracts prior to WW2. At that point they were based in Newburgh, New York, although I suppose it's possible they migrated North prior to getting their Navy contract. The Talon zipper on that contract is certainly a Canadian make.
Oh and welcome back to the VLJ - beautiful collection of Navy jackets you have.
and thank you, it’s good to be back on the forum
