Cooper G-1 U.S. Navy Pilots Jacket The "G-1" military flight jacket is the commonly accepted name for the fur-lined-collar World War II-era flight jacket of the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. The G-1 remains a current uniform-issue item in naval aviation for officer and enlisted aviation personnel on flying status in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Coast Guard. More technically, the jacket may be considered the U.S. Military flight jacket developed in 1947 and used in the Korean War, since the term "G-1" was not used as a label for this fur-collared military-issued jacket until after World War II. However, the term "G-1" has come to be used for this style of naval leather flight jacket. Prior to the end of World War II, and starting in 1940 when it was officially named by the U.S. Navy, the jacket had the military spec number of M-422.

The G-1 remains a current uniform-issue item in naval aviation for officer and enlisted aviation personnel on flying status in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Coast Guard.

USAF A-2 Jacket autographed Original Autographed Lakenheath USAF A2 Flight Jacket. Condition is "Used". Nearly 20 years ago some aircrew from the 48th fighter Wing at Lakenheath very kindly agreed to sign this ex USAF A2 leather jacket, even the Velcro patch is signed! At that time the Wing operated a mix of F15E and F15C Eagle aircraft. There are some interesting and typically American fighter jock signatures ! This is quite a rare chance to purchase a genuine ex issue A2, it carries the correct Saddlery label and is a size 44R and was manufactured in 1988 by Cooper, and is from the very first contract placed by the USAF for an A2 jacket since WW2. This was the largest single contract ever awarded for leather flying jackets, and was intended to partly address shortfalls in recruitment at the time. The quality is excellent and the condition is very fine, with no tears, rips or staining, cuffs and waistband all original. The 494th Fighter squadron F15E patch is attached with Velcro. The space command patch is just an added extra, and is not connected to the jacket. The original pilots name tag, has obviously been removed, and again was attached with Velcro. The 1988 issue A-2's are the best quality, although of course some aircrew had their own versions made, and commercially available jackets were adapted to service specifications occasionally , albeit unofficially . In my experience early 1988 Saddlery marked jackets were better made than later 1995 issues and superior to Avirex examples issued at that time . Just to be clear, this is an ex USAF jacket, issued in 1988. Not to be confused with the commercial copies made by Cooper and released to the general market. The commercial copies feature amongst other differences, an orange label and are not an issue item. S/N 231 Price includes delivery to UK mainland only

The Civil Air Patrol was conceived in the late 1930s by aviation advocate Gill Robb Wilson, who foresaw general aviation's potential to supplement America's military operations. With the help of New York Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia, in his capacity as then-Director of the Office of Civilian Defence, CAP was created with Administrative Order 9, signed by LaGuardia on 1 December 1941 and published 8 December 1941. The Civil Air Patrol had 90 days to prove themselves to Congress. Major General John F. Curry was appointed as the first national commander. Texas oilman David Harold Byrd was a co-founder of CAP. During World War II, CAP was seen as a way to use America's civilian aviation resources to aid the war effort instead of grounding them. The organization assumed many missions including anti-submarine patrol and warfare, border patrols, and courier services. During World War II CAP's coastal patrol flew 24 million miles, found 173 enemy U-boats, attacked 57, hit 10 and sank two, dropping a total of 83 bombs and depth charges throughout the conflict. By the end of the war, 64 CAP members had lost their lives in the line of duty postage is included in the sale for main land U.K. only. s/n 127

No. 322 Squadron of the Royal Air Force was formed from the Dutch personnel of No. 167 Squadron RAF on 12 June 1943 at RAF Woodvale. The squadron retained the code-letter combination VL which had been used previously by No. 167 Squadron until late June 1944, when it was changed to 3W. It served at RAF West Malling and other stations during the Second World War. From 20 June to 9 August 1944, and equipped with Spitfire Mk XIVs, the squadron was tasked with intercepting the V-1 Flying Bomb "doodlebug" missiles launched from the Dutch and French coasts towards London. Flying Officer Rudy Burgwal was the most outstanding pilot on these 'anti-diver' patrols, claiming five of the missiles in one 90 minute flight on 8 July 1944. The total for the squadron was 108.5 destroyed. On 7 October 1945, the squadron disbanded at Wunstorf in Germany as part of the RAF. In recognition of the squadron's wartime record, the squadron was re-established at Twente Airbase on 27 September 1946 as the 322e Jachtvliegtuig Afdeling (Fighter Division) of the Royal Netherlands Army.
