    Hi guys,
    Picked up this uniform while my buddy Cliff was in town. WWII summer wieght RCAF uniform named to PO Blewett. Dated 10-5-43. The uniform was picked up in the London area and Blewett had family in St. Thomas.
    He was a navigator on Lancaster DS691, they were shot down flying on a mission to bomb Hannover 10-8-43. They took off from Little Snoring.

    Lots of research potential with this one, having his plane serial number, etc. This one is available for sale if anyone is interested.
