Item #18009

This is an amazing WWII US Army Air Force named 15th Combat Cargo Squadron, part of the 4th Combat Cargo Group, CBI A2 jacket grouping named to, then, 2LT Albert Neeley. The items that are included are the A2 jacket in a size 44. The jacket itself is in good overall condition with the exception of the leather is becoming a little stiff, the cuffs and waist band have appropriate wear for a service jacket and most of the jackets lining had been cut out during the war. The son said that the lining was removed sue to the fact that a shoulder holster he wore had worn a hole in it and so he just simply cut the whole lining out. The jacket is named to Lieutenant Colonel Albert Neeley, he rose to the rank of LTC after the war. The jacket also retains two beautiful theater made leather patches. One on the left shoulder is a CBI patch and the one on the right shoulder is an Army Air Forces patch. Both are in excellent condition. Also included in the group are a 15th Combat Cargo Squadron baseball cap from LTC Neeley with his original pilots pin back shirt wings as well as contemporary pins of the planes he flew in the war. Three WWII USAAF maps with pencil marks of routes that he flew. The maps are Mt. Victoria Brahmaputra River and Irrawaddy River. All three maps are 1943 dated. Three matchbooks (two from Pampa Army Air Field, Pampa Texas and one from Pierre Air Done, South Dakota.) are included from his time in training. There are two War ration books with his name, his pilot�s license issued in 1946. There is a photo provided by the son of his original dog tag and medals as well as a copy of a photo taken during the war of his State Farm office where they had reserved his desk until he came back from the war. There is also a copy of the instructions on how to start up a C-46. There are some additional printed copies of his National Archives & Records Administration records online, news articles about his service and return home after training. There is also a funny note (copy) attached to one of the articles talking about how he got his 50 mission crusher look by soaking his visor cap in the sink. A short history of the 15th Combat Cargo Squadron. A custom made holster with a swastika that his son said he made in theater. A great grouping and rare to find such a detailed grouping to a named A2 jacket.
