OC-1395   Very rare grouping for an American Volunteer, Lawrence Sherman, who joined the Canadian Expeditionary Forces by lying about his age. After he was in training, it was found out that he deceived the CEF and he was pulled out and sent home before his unit was shipped overseas. The next year he went back to Canada and enlisted in the RAF, giving the alias of Jack McQuestion and again lying about his age. This time he was not found out and became and RAF Cadet Pilot. Before his training was finished the War ended. The uniform is in good condition overall accept for some repaired damage to the lower pockets, as shown. Included is the original tunic, trousers, flight log book and quite a bit of original paperwork and 2 original photos, including a studio portrait of him wearing this very uniform!! You hear stories of this kind of activity of underage enlistees and the giving of false names, but so interesting to actually see a set like this. Great opportunity!! $1695 $SOLD$
