Operation Titanic/Frantic Russian language safe conduct pass .
« on: November 23, 2015, 09:45:04 AM »
I wasn't sure where to put this so here goes .
This is an Operation Frantic " Blood chit " in Russian .
Operation Frantic first called "Titanic" was a supposedly combined effort by the USAAF and Soviet Russia to operate Bombers and their fighter escort
from bases in Russia in order to be able to hit targets deeper into Germany and towards the Baltic coast .
All too often the Russian would "accidently" shoot at the US Aircraft making something like this pass all too indispensable .
Looking for any British/commonwealth and USAAF/USN aviation headgear 1939-45.
 Flight Helmets O2masks Goggles communications gear or spate parts .

No I don't  have one of those Ian . I'm not too savvy with Insignia its  bit too much of a mine field for me .
Nice patch that though .
