I GOT THIS JACKET 17 YEARS AGO FROM THE VET THAT LIVED DOWN THE STREET FROM ME. I DAY I STOPPED AND ASK HIM IF HE WAS IN WW. 2 HE SAID WHY DO YOU ASK. I TOLD HIM THAT I COLLECT WW. 2 ITEMS AND WENT ON TO TELL HIM WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR.
HE SAID I DON'T HAVE ANY OF THAT NAZI STUFF! I WAS IN A BOMBER DROPPING BOMBS ON THEM. I SAID HOW ABOUT YOUR JACKET STILL GOT IT HE SAID BUT CAN'T GET IN IT ANY MORE TO FAT NOW WHY DO YOU WANT IT? WELL HERE IT IS AND YES I DID PAY HIM FOR IT! MOVED TO A NEW HOUSE NEVER SEEN HIM AFTER THAT BUT ONE OF MY OLD FRIENDS TOLD ME HE DIED HE WAS 86.
HIS NAME WAS HENRY CLEVELAND THAT IS ON THE LEATHER NAME STRIP ON THE JACKET. HE WAS WITH THE 452 BOMB GROUP B-17'S HE WAS A CO PILOT.
THE JACKET, IS STILL WEARABLE IF YOUR INTO THAT BUT IT IS PRETTY OLD LOOKING NO RIPS OR TEARS-THIS IS A REAL PART OF HISTORY AND I LOOKED UP THE HISTORY OF HIS GROUP AND IT GOES WITH THE JACKET, AND WHAT A HISTORY LOT OF TOWNS BOMBED RAILWAYS BALL BEARING FACTORY'S ETC.
