Pre-WWII French Air Force officer's cap with detachable white cover.

 

Pre-war, 1929 pattern officer's cap for a junior officer in L'Armee de L'Air for a pilot or flight crew member. Hat is in very good condition overall. Good composite peak/visor, black silk lining with cellophane sweat diamond and leatherette sweatband, both of which have some slight damage from drying out but this does not detract. No damage or wear to wool cap, which is covered with a white cotton top for summer wear to which the winged cap badge is attached by small snaps/poppers. 

Some staining to the white cotton at the edges. A lovely example of an early French Air Force officer's cap of the type worn during the fall of France and the Battle of Britain.

WWII era French Air Force Flight Medic/Nurse/Rescue Pilot uniform jacket.

 

Tunic from a Nurse/Medic Rescue Pilot (IPSA:  Infirmière Pilote Secours de l'Air). The IPSA were created in 1934, trained as both medics and pilots in order to treat, evacuate and transport wounded soldiers (as pilots and nurses). After WWII they were flew only as nurses and took part in both the Indochina and the Algerian War. Though identical to early examples, this tunic was most likely made between 1945 and 1950. Nonetheless a rare and interesting uniform jacket.

Royal Saudi Arabian Air Force Tropical Combat Coat.

 

An unusual US Air Force "Man's Tropical Combat Coat" issued to a member of the Royal Saudi Arabian Air Force for joint operations in the Persian Gulf. 1980s. Great patches. This is not my area of interest or expertise but it's a good looking named jacket which might be worth researching and certainly belongs in any Gulf War collection.
