    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.
    His Obit, passed away in 2005

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