WW2 USAAF Visor Hats Named to B-17 Pilot Officer's Crushed +1
This is grouping of two Visor Hats named to B-17 Pilot James B. Lundahl.
First is a nice 'crushed' Officer's Visor Hat by Marshal Field Company, Chicago, named under the visor (I have owned 3 AAF Visors marked in this same way). No size label - I am a Size 7 1/2 and it fits me snug so am guessing a 7 3/8.
Second is Lundahl's early Visor Hat from when he enlisted, named inside to Lundahl as well as giving his address at Boulevard Manor in Kansas City - a men's community center and apartment complex which was taken over for use as a barracks by the Army during ww2. This definitely dates the hat to WW2 even though, condition-wise, you would think it is newer. There is a scuffed spot on the edge of the visor, as well as what looks like a small bit of glue residue behind the chin strap.
Last 3 photos were taken at the estate where I got the Hat. They show Lundahl's B-17 Training Manuals and Pilot's graduation program for Class 44-G from Williams Field in Chandler, Arizona. I was unable to obtain these items, and this sale is for the Visor Hat only. Note that I have his enlisted Army Serial Number as well as his officer's ASN.
