WWII C-1 Type SURVIVAL VEST. Manufactured by Cappel-MacDonald & Company. One of the copper snaps is missing. This WWII Type C-1 Survival Vest is in good condition given its age. Perfect for re-enactors and WWII Collectors!There wasn't much left in the pockets. A couple of ration cards. A screw top case with matches that I don't think is original.
I don't want to post it out there for the public in order to protect the privacy of his family. I will share this, he served in WW2, the Korean war and Vietnam. My understanding is that he flew over 250 missions and retired as a General. This vest isn't personally marked, but it is all from the same place and I personally love the history of an item every bit as much as I do the item itself.
