I recently discovered the name on the inner left collar Sgt R M Pelum. The estate had no survivors so there was no family member to take this jacket.This is a piece of American and World History. The bombs painted on the front indicate the number of air raids this person was a part of. There is nothing like this anywhere available for sale. The patch is the 441st Bomb Squadron. The Latin phrase is "FINIS ORIGINE PENDET": The Academy motto is a quotation taken out of context from the Astronomica of Manuilius. As a school motto, it is freely translated as The end depends upon the beginning. From a pet and smoke free home. Check out my other listings.
