Hey Carl,

Did your photos download properly?  Or is it on my end.  I go to your post and all I can see in the photo's is enlarged chunks of fur.  Again might be on my end but all other thread photos seem fine.

Sweet jacket there Carl!  I have my Father-In-Law's but it might be a B-10.  I'll dig it out and check it out.

Hey Carl,

You are correct.  I "mistyped" but mean't B-11.  The O'l flying fingers got in the way.  Anyhow here are some pics of my B-11.  As you know the same as the B-9 but with an alpaca lining instead of the quilted lining.  This belonged to my Father-In-Law.  Paul Redkovich - 490th BG, 850th BS.  Flew most of his missions on the B-17 "Lady Helene".  (Pilot's wife's name)
   He told me he used this in flight onoccasion.

Should have said "basically" the same as the B-9 but in addition to the linings the B-11 does not have knit cuffs and the exterior pockets are different.
