Early Soviet Air Force Commander Jacket

Recommended Posts

Here are some photos of an early 1922-1924 Air Force Commander jacket. It is made from medium brown wool with a 6 wooden button front and has four flapped pockets, the lower ones being internal. It is fully lined in black cotton. There is a two hook closure at the neck for the fall collar. The insignia is light blue with red piping. All insignia is hand-sewn and matches for construction, materials and age/wear. The metal wings on the collar tabs are of an early pattern. The rank insignia is especially interesting as it indicates use by Azerbaijani forces. There is a single hole of the left breast for what appears to have been a screw-back Red Banner.

Overall this jacket shows moderate wear with multiple repairs to the lining, the front and rear of the jacket.

Your questions, comments and feedback are solicited and appreciated.
