Hi there!
Very nice stuff, mates!!! Very beautyfull!!!!!

@ Marpo: I'd like to see, if is possible, some close up of the photo up right on your post#1. The flying guy have an interested wiring system... I would like also see some CU of label and zip closure of your summer Marus jacket (post#11) and that use in north Arika too (post#12)...

@ Fabio: As stated by Marpo, the jacket is one of the lot type distribuited by Regia Aeronautica, the common type, with the vertical slightly slashed breast pockets. The badget are applied in a not very common way, because the shoulder boards are not often applied on flight gear, that carried own boards, made in the same wool of the jacket. Even the pilots badge its not often seeing on flying suit, and the 'Red Devil' (the beautyful thing seeing ever!!!!) is almost always on the others side. The helmet keep the features of both german famous flughaube, Lkp 100 (round metal earcups, but have the strap of troath phones made in another way), and Lkp S101 (the whole contruction). The italian copied those type of flight helmet by own experience and taste, and built tha famous 'M' helmet. There's not sure that type of stuff saw the action, because there's no period pics that showed it wore by our fellows crewmember.

See 'ya, collectors friends! Frank

Frank, at the moment I don't have with me anything of my collection, so I
can work only with the pics uploaded on my PC.I'll be able later in the next
days to post the label and the zip closure of my summer Marus jacket.
From my archive, here the two most common Marus labels, used on the
Ital. R. Aeronautica flying jackets:

The one of #11 is no more in my collection, but I had that from a former
G.50 pilot captured in North Africa by the NZs and Aussies.He returned home
on 1946 with this jacket.
About the flying guy with helmet and wiring system of my #2, he was a
flying wireles operator so the wiring system, earphones, etc, could be
worn either outside the helmet, or, as in this case, with the helmet on.
Bye. PaoloM
