B8 electrically heated lens lead
« on: January 11, 2018, 06:17:51 AM »
Those who do not collect USAAF items would probably wonder why the excitement of such a small insignificant item ??.
Well its a super scarce piece of kit to add to the F3 heated clothing system.
Super pumped up about this ,as i have now sourced the lenses that the lead attaches to !

Congrats , what I like is the original envelope with details and contract number.

To have an original item is one thing but the documentation-superb!

Note Property Air Forces,US Army which I have never seen it  that way.

cheers for showing

Phill
