WWII US 10th Air Force Pilot Uniform Grouping-The 10th Air Force was formed in 1942 and saw action in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater in World War II, specifically in Burma, India Burma, Central Burma and the China Offensive and Defensive engagements. This grouping consists of a Class A dress jacket, a side cap, an Air Force New Testament, an Air Force belt buckle and a photograph of the pilot. The jacket is in fine condition, with the normal minor wear and discoloration from use. The wearer was a captain as witnessed by the pair of bullion bars on each shoulder. There is definitely some wear to each of these. The bullion pilot wings are a standout, with a lot of toning and minor wear but wow! The 10th Air Force patch on the left sleeve is a bit loose but in no danger of falling off. The aviation branch lapel pins for an officer are in fine condition. There is a ribbon bar for the Air medal which has an additional 3 stars. The long ribbon bar has the Asia-Pacific ribbon with two stars, the American Defense ribbon and the Good Conduct ribbon. There is also an enamel air force pin. The U.S. lapel pins are present as well. The jacket has four pockets, the breast pockets having scalloped flaps and being pleated. The hip pockets have straight flaps and are concealed. There is a four-button closure and a waist belt. The lower left sleeve has three bullion has marks for 18 months overseas service. The lower right sleeve has a gold tresse. There is also a paper laundry tag on the lower left sleeve. The interior is fully lined in dark green rayon that is excellent. There is a vertical pocket on the left side and a standard pocket on the right. There is a Chicago tailor label on the right side plus the initials of the owner, E.S.M. Inside the pocket is another tailor label with the hand written name of the owner, E.S. Merritt. The jacket is a size medium. The cap has some mothing but is in ok condition otherwise. The book, photo and buckle are all in good condition as well. A great grouping!
