WW2 US Army Air Force Corp officer cadet soldier KIA pilot USAF NAME group trunk. Here is your chance to own an interesting grouping from an Air Force cadet who was killed during pilot training.Named to (I believe he made Seargent) Ralph Hilleary. This includes just about everything saved by his mother after his death and includes military uniform items, his cemetary deed, sympathy cards, newspaper clippings, etc. From my research Ralph entered the service in 1944 and trained into 1947 as an aviation cadet. His mother applied for the World War II compensation fund and was denied as he technically died after the end of the war, though did enter the service while the war still raged in 1944.
The visor is a size 7-18 from Society and there are four garrison caps and his khaki (all named) trousers. You can see I put all of his miscellaneous military insignia into a riker display case.
All in all it's a very sad story and this is basically his entire legacy in this trunk. There is also a tattered Boy Scouts of America shirt, and personal items such as his golf balls, a knitted sweater vest, photos of women he knew, and other items. Reat looking grouping in good overall condition and ready for your collection.
I never grade my items as mint, even though may be. If for any reason you require additional photos, please do not hesitate to ask.
