    David Low was a great political cartoonist. Goebbles hate him so you you can imagine the Twitter whining he'd have got from Sgt Heel Spurs....

    How about you read the rules and keep your defamatory opinions to yourself!

    If you hadn’t said so and I didn’t already know I’d swear that was midnight CXL. That looks so much beefier than typical Vic and much less royal blue than the other navy Vic batches.

    This being the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, I thought I’d mention my own humble link to that momentous occasion: back in 2014, Navy helicopter squadron HS-4 flew my Navy Reserve unit out to our ship in Hawaii and it’s the same helicopter squadron that performed the Apollo 11 astronaut recovery in 1969!
    Also I have the honor of personally knowing one of the UDT-12 frogmen that actually participated in the Apollo 11 astronaut recovery!
    And thanks to @nick123, I have a Navy helicopter rescue swimmer G-1 in my jacket collection!:)

    I got it for a great price on Ebay. It was a bit mouldy (as stated by the vendor). A kind of pungent white mould had formed on it, especially the quilted bit. I rubbed it with some white vinegar rinsed it with a damp cloth, left it in strong sunshine, then cleaned and conditioned it with Lexol. Looks, feels and smells wonderful now. I think it's from the 90s. Beautifully made.

    Great score, I was tempted by this one when I saw it, but I have a Chopper, so I don't really have an excuse. This might be my favorite design from Vanson. Stick the belt from the Model E on it and you’re done!

    Thanks. No more jackets for a while....(!).
    I plan to use the belt and the fur collar from its siblings. Lots of combinations to play with.

    Thank you. I take a 42 in Vansons, 42/44 in Schotts, 42 in Aeros. 42 in Taylors leatherwear.

    I need to thin the herd a little.....

    Well, I'd take some of your hands, but sadly my odd frame of "just about 38" wouldn't suffice. Time to bulk up me thinks.
