Estate Fresh Wwii Usaaf A-2 Flight Jacket From The 58th Fighter Squadron For Sale
Grenadier Military Antiques Is Offering This Estate
Fresh WWII USAAF A-2 Flight Jacket From The 58th Fighter Squadron. I purchased
this jacket directly from the family of the late Second Lt. Nathan L. Woodward,
12th Air Force, 33rd Fighter Group, 58th Fighter Squadron "The Gorillas." Lt.
Woodward had one confirmed kill on 27 January, 1944, while the 58th was
operating in the MTO, before being transferred to China. The jacket is
untouched, and as found. It is still somewhat supple, and pliable, and overall
very solid. There are many scuffs, abrasions, stains and overall wear from
period use. At the top of each sleeve, right at the shoulders, is a small
approx. 1" tear from use. The jacket is complete with it's original, working
"taylon" zipper, and retains the original waist band and cuffs which are still
very elastic. The jacket features a leather name tag, which is very worn, a
leather CBI patch and a leather 58th Fighter Squadron patch on the left breast.
Both the CBI and 58th patch are somewhat loose, but still attached. As the 58th
patch is loose, you can lift it up and see the somewhat worn remains of a hand
painted, yellow P-40 Warhawk under the patch. The spec. tag is present, and
shows a size of "36". The jacket is fully lined, and features the stenciled name
of Lt. Woodward.Also included it the box for Lt. Woodward's DFC, which has his
name on the back of the box. Unfortunately the family has no idea of where the
medal itself has gone, and it is lost to time. His air cadet's and USAAF
officer's cap badges are also included. As noted, this jacket is estate fresh,
and has never been offered for sale to the collector's community before this
listing. It is solid, untouched and shows heavy wear from honest period use. The
overall condition is very good.All
items are absolutely guaranteed 100% original, and are from the period stated.
