 WWII Uniforms

 UU-1307  EXCELLENT WWII RAF/RCAF Flight Grouping. Consisting of a complete gorgeous “wartime” helmet rig which is comprises of a very nice: C-Type flying helmet, G-Type oxygen mask w/mike, and Mark VIII flight goggles.  All of the wiring and hosing is intact and in very nice condition!  The group further contains Model 1941 flying boots which are in a very nice size and condition.  It should be noted this type of a helmet rig and flying boots were extremely popular with AAF pilots as well.  Period photography demonstrates that every other US pilot utilized Commonwealth flying equipment due to the ‘dashing style’ and the ‘veteran’ look.  Along with the helmet rig and boots is a splendid ‘English’ made RCAF Navigator’s uniform (blouse and pants).  The English made tunic, which is untouched, has very nice English made ‘CANADA’ shoulder titles and Navigator brevet (wing), the rank is ‘Flying Officer’, similar to a US rank of 1st Lieutenant.   The rarest insignia on the uniform are the “operations wings” (O-wings) which are screwed onto the middle of the left breast pocket.  The ‘operations wings’ were awarded to ‘combat crew’ for flying actual combat missions, since not all personnel in the Commonwealth overseas necessarily flew actual combat missions.   All of the buttons on the blouse are made by the prestigious and historic British company “FIRMIN OF LONDON”

 This wonderful set conjures up images of the valiant bomber crews of the Commonwealth that flew night missions (AAF flew during the day) in Lancaster and Halifax bombers against the Third Reich.  This would make a wonderful display and/or addition to any WWII and/or aviation collection!  $1295  $SOLD$

 

 

 UU-1306  Very Rare Dual Air Force RCAF/AAF 363rd Fighter Group P-51 fighter pilot’s grouping of Gerald Cameron Clough This is a fantastic group which belonged to Gerald C Clough who was born in North Dighton, MA on July 2nd, 1921.  Gerald earned his wings and commission in the RCAF after attending the RAF flying school in Bermuda in 1941 before the US entry into the war, and then another flying school in Canada.  Upon the award of his wings and commission by the RCAF he sailed to England and was posted with the RCAF.  In 1943 he transferred to the 380th Fighter Squadron, 363rd Fighter Group in the 9th AAF.  In the 363rd FG Gerald flew many missions in his P-51D Mustang to include the June 6th Normandy mission.  Gerald had one confirmed kill in the air and 3 unconfirmed kills on the ground.  In 1943 Gerald met and married Anne Everson who was a WAAF corporal.  He later took her back to the Sates and had a long marriage with her.  In total Gerald flew 90 missions in the ETO before being posted back to the United States, where he was assigned upon arrival to be a flight instructor in Florida with the 3rd AAF.  His service had ended in March 1945 after he suffered a midair flying accident.  Captain Gerald c Clough had earned a DFC, Air Medals, ETO with battle stars, and the Canadian War Service medal with ‘overseas service’ maple leaf bar!  After the war he had a very long career in Marketing.  Gerald C Clough passed away on August 11, 1998 http://www.greensboro.com/obituaries/article_96f84e73-6531-5c12-af1c-36b689b26be8.html There is a fantastic book included with the group: “Cross-Border WARRIORS” by Fred Gaffen about Americans who served in the Canadian forces, Gerald C Clough’s wartime history is well written by his own narrative from page 120-125, it is a wonderful read!

 The group consists of a tailored and named OD gabardine blouse which displays the ultra-rare RCAF “mini wings” over the right breast pocket, over the left breast pockets are English made ribbon bars with devices, pin back sterling US wings, 5 bullion overseas bars (2.5 years of service overseas), US made 9th AAF patch on the right sleeve, and a fantastic bullion/embroidered 3rd AAF patch on the left sleeve.  The 3rs AAF patch is a very nice and rare variant.  The blouse also has his rank and collar insignia.  The blouse is 100% untouched!  There is a copy of a photo with the group depicting Gerald wearing this identical blouse with all the very same insignia except the 3rd AAF patch, which was obviously replaced when for the ‘general AAF’ patch seen in the photo.  He obviously replaced it with the 3rd AAF patch when posted with the 3rd AAF Training Command in Florida.  Along with the blouse is nice English made officers overseas cap with English made ‘overseas cap size’ captains bars.  Along with the group is a mint set of B-3A leather fighter pilots gloves and a cased set of British Mark VIII flying goggles which were not only worn by the RAF/RCAF, but also were extremely popular with  AAF pilots.  In fact there is a copy of a photo of Captain Clough in the cockpit of his P-51D wearing Mark VIII goggles.  The googles case contains an extra set of lenses and a tin with special goggles cleaning oil/ointment.  The group further contains re-prints of original photos of Captain Clough in the cockpit of his P-51D (same photo as in the book), a studio photo wearing the blouse in the grouping, a wonderful photo of his wife Anne Everson as she appeared when he met her in 1943 in her WAAF uniform.

 This is a wonderful and rare grouping, the likes of which is rarely encountered.  A grouping deserving of an advance collection, and/or museum display.  Do not let this pass you by!   $2695 $SOLD$

 This is an absolutely wonderful grouping which consist of a fantastic uniform w/visor, medals/insignia, and archive belonging to George R, Hail who joined the RCAF in 1941 after attending the legendary ‘Spartan Flying School’ in the US (many Eagle Squadron pilots attend Spartan as well), flew bombers for the RCAF from England starting in 1942 as a Sergeant Pilot and then transferred to the AAF in England 1943 as a Flight Officer (F/0).  Upon transferring he served in England until late in 1943 and then transferred back Stateside for additional training, and then sent back to England in the second half of 1944 to fly B-17s in the 95th Bomb Group of the 8th AAF as a Lieutenant where he was awarded a DFC and a couple Air Medals.   

 The grouping consists of a gorgeous privately tailored tan worsted wool blouse which displays rare RAF ‘mini’ pilots wings (these are very rare and classic  for those that transferred into the AAF from the Commonwealth), the blouse displays beautiful English made sewn-on ribbon bars with English clusters  (stars on the ETO ribbon, oak leaf on the AM ribbon, and maple leaf on the Canadian War Service medal), sterling pin-back US pilots wings, English made stubby 8th AAF patch, overseas bars, and DUC with multiple clusters (95th BG).  The tunic has a tailor label and named.  This tunic was originally tailored to George R. Hail while back in the States for training in early 1944.  In one of the numerous letters in the amazing archive which is included with the grouping, he mentions having 2 fine tan tunics tailored for him.  Along with the tunic is a very nice matching visor with his name neatly inked in the underside of the visor.  Along with the group is a set of extra insignia to include a  set of full size uniform removed RCAF pilots wings, a set of US sterling pin-back pilots wings, and a leather nametag holder with his name.  As well included are his medals: named DFC, Air Medal, Canadian War Service medal with Maple Leaf bar (the maple Leaf bar denoted overseas service), etc..

Shows the oil and grease stains from so much time in the aircraft. Nice 4 pocket service blouse with bullion wings and shoulder patch. Ike jacket with bullion shoulder insignia. Apparently he had left the CBI on the left sleeve and had not switched it to the right sleeve when he returned to the US. Many years later, for  a reunion he placed the patches in the correct 1946 configuration. This one garment had been exposed to sun and shows the shadow. I would just switch the patches back to their wartime positions. There are multiple shirts with theater made insignia including one with bullion wings and one with cloth.
