RARE World War 2 USAAF Tanker Jacket – no tagged size, fits around a large, but please refer to measurements below. One of the best designed military jackets of all time, this World War 2 Tanker Jacket was worn by Lt. Colonel William Hugh McWhorter Jr. McWhorter joined the Army Air Corps in 1939 and served until his death in 1949. Wounded in combat he was awarded the Purple Heart. Some pilots preferred this jacket for its warmth and ease of movement over their A-2. Likely dated from 1942-44 (when the B-10 was issued). The condition is incredible for its age. Some staining to the shell, some light wear to the wool collar, cuffs, waistband and lining, but no rips or tears. The Conmar Keyhole zipper works beautifully and has zero issues. Features USAAF patch on the shoulder. A great piece for any World War 2 collection! I’ve tried to accurately describe and photograph the item, however, some variation in color may occur. Please contact me with any questions or if you’d like additional photos. Pit to Pit – 25 1/2. Shoulder – 19 1/2. Sleeve – 23 1/2. Length – 24 1/2. USA – FREE (And insured for the full value).
