    Description

    British Made Ike Jacket, Flight Officer, 8th Air Force, With Pathfinder Insignia. Likely belonging to a glider pilot, this apparently custom-made Ike jacket appears in all respects to be of British manufacture. No maker's mark or other identification is present on the jacket. The jacket has a fine bullion big-wing 8th Air Force insignia on the upper left sleeve and a Pathfinder insignia and service stripes on the lower portion of the sleeve. The Pathfinder insignia is silk embroidery on a blue wool backing. All insignia are hand-sewn. The jacket is complete with all collar insignia, Pilot Officer shoulder insignia and a ribbon bar over the left breast pocket with ribbons for an Air Medal (with cluster), Purple Heart, and European-African- Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with two stars and single spearhead. An Army Presidential Unit Citation bar is mounted above the right pocket.

    Condition: Excellent. The only wear is some fraying at the cuffs.
