Korean War Khaki Pilot Marine Coat Corsair Flying Cross
A few weeks ago some amazing uniforms appeared on Ebay, too many to be honest. One of the uniforms I missed out on was this amazing Khaki Marine Officer's coat. While I am not much of a khaki coat or Marine Aviator collector or a big fan of the Corsair (My favorite WWII fighter is the Wildcat), this original owner of this coat was quite a Marine....! Earning a flying Cross for actions in the Korea War flying corsairs, really changed things up for me. There are very few things I regret missing out on but this Marine Pilot hero really tells an incredible story. Congratulations to the winner!
