|Type A-2 Jacket, above left and right photo.
This jacket was manufactured by the Rough Wear Clothing Company, Middletown PA.
It was restored in 2009 by the Eastman Leather Company, London England. This jacket was in very poor
condition prior to restoration. The Eastman Company replaced the left and right cuff, waist band and
lining, and added a replica nomenclature label. After restoration the original Troop Carrier Squadron
patch was applied to the front of the jacket.
