Hi Chaps

Got three now, so thought I'd share.
Apologies for not being around much, holidays, new job, kids going back to school and college etc!!!

Let me know what you think.

First is an 8th patched B13 jacket purchased from a fellow member. Bell trading wings and PUC added

Third one is 8th badged Service Jacket

Really good condition with nice Amcraft Pilot Wings.

I added the medal bar which I'm unsure about. It has a nice zinc pin back slider. Three ribbons are very new looking with brass back plates.
I've taken some pictures of them under black light which i'll show on a separate thread.

I can easily replace these I guess!!

So that's the three.
Let me know if there's anything that incorrect

Thanks and regards

Lee

Nice threesome Lee...I have very similar examples in my own collection. The pick of the bunch (imho) is the B13...quite hard to come by as it was short-lived design. An EM's B14 would complement it nicely ( same design but in EM's OD wool...also scarce)  I like the officer's Ike too...private purchase in dark OD elastique?
