Ww2 Usmc / Usnr Summer Flight Jacket M-421 A To A Pilot Kia In Korean War For Sale
Original and extremely rare WW2 US Marine Corps / US Navy Reserve summer flight jacket named to a USMC Pilot Killed in action in the Korean War. As mint as I have ever found in regards to one that was issued and worn. A very interesting name tag with no rank marked. According to the family this is the jacket that he wore during flight training in Florida. There are absolutely no holes, tears or fraying, even to the cuffs. Some grime from use and storage, but I have not cleaned it. Size marked 40. Zipper is Talon and is mint with original leather pull. A stunning, museum grade piece. The following excerpt is directly from the US Archives:
U.S. Marine Corps

Squadron 332, Marine Air Group 12 aboard the aircraft carrier USS BAIROKO

northwest of Changyon, North Korea, his aircraft was hit by small arms fire
