    Hello folks,

    I would love to get my hands on one of these amazing WW2 RCAF flight jackets, but haven't seen one come up for a while. They are made by "Deacon", but could have been made by other contractors as well (unsure).

    If anyone has one, I'd love to see it! And if one was for sale, I'm willing to pay.

    I've never seen one for sale before. How many were issued? Can't say that I've even seen one in any of the books I've read. Very interesting design for sure.

    I'm not sure. Not much info out there about them. This is the only photo I have found of them being worn. I'd still very much love to get my hands on one. I have the trousers, but not the jacket.
