ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC PAINTED B-24 “BIG CHIEF LITTLE BEAVER” A-2 FLIGHT JACKET GROUPING BELONGING TO CO-PILOT WALTER A. SCHUCH -  458 BG, 755 BS, 8th AAF

This is a marvelous A-2 flight jacket grouping belonging to Co-Pilot from the famous 458th Bomb Group, 755th Bob Squadron of the Mighty Eighth!  Lt. Walter A. Schuch completed an entire tour of missions (35 missions) in a B-24 with the 755th Bomb Squadron.  His A-2 jacket and the accompanying grouping constitute a wonderful collection of the Might Eighth flying bombing mission against the Third Reich.

The A-2 jacket is a brilliant specimen of a painted 8th AAF flight jacket.  The jacket is 100% original and untouched in any way shape and form.  The A-2 is a classic ‘Perry Sportswear’ contract, in magnificent overall condition, to include original knits and zipper.  The jacket features Lt’s rank insignia, nametag, and a large English made 755th Bomb Squadron patch.  The artwork on the back is a superb example of 8th AAF art-work to include: aircraft name, 8th AAF heraldry (note the early ‘stubby wing’ design!!), B-24 bomber executed in fine artistic profile to include the group’s tail markings, and a mission tally in a form of bombs dropping from the Bombay doors.  The artwork was executed by a professional artist in fine professional detail to include a (red) shadow effect behind the letters and 8th AAF heraldry.

The grouping comes with a 1945 painting presented to Walter, it is a rendition of a 458th BG B-24 bomber coming in for a landing with smoke coming from a propeller and sending up flares (green and red) – these flares indicated distress and alerted ground crews to be on standby for necessary assistance.  This painting was painted by the group artist Jack Fisk who had also painted Walter’s A-2 jacket, the very jacket with this grouping!  Jack Fisk was a trained artist and became a noted artist after the war.  To have a group which contains not only a stellar painted A-2, but also a period (1945) painting by the same professional artist, is an extreme rarity! This grouping transcends militaria collecting, it is also American folk art!

Along with the grouping is Walter’s tan officer’s visor with a green mohair band – the green mohair band variety are a bit scarce.  The grouping further includes Walter’s IDs and military dog tag on original lanyard.

The accompanying archive consisting of:

1.      Professional original portraits (to include Walter’s pre-war with sweetheart, pilot in the CAP, AAF)

2.      Original photos (to include: nose art of “Big Chief Little Beaver”, crew photos, fellow serviceman, and several of Walter wearing this very A-2 jacket which is with the group)

3.      A plethora of original paperwork to include orders, discharge, etc..

4.      Original ephemera to include the “escape & evasion” photos and other interesting items.

The “Mighty Eighth” Painted A-2 flight jacket groups of this caliber are seldom encountered in the market today.  This grouping is deserving of a discriminating collection and/or museum.  Do not let this get away!  $7795 $SOLD$

Apparently he had left the CBI on the left sleeve and had not switched it to the right sleeve when he returned to the US. Many years later, for  a reunion he placed the patches in the correct 1946 configuration. This one garment had been exposed to sun and shows the shadow. I would just switch the patches back to their wartime positions. There are multiple shirts with theater made insignia including one with bullion wings and one with cloth.
