Welcome to the fraternity and I hope your treatment for your U.S.A.A.F. fetish goes well? :lol:

To me a Cooper is a good starting jacket and in time you will come to refine your understandings of this hobby and be able to walk out in your finery with a panache so deserving.

So keep trawling and asking questions.

MIKE.

Hi Mike
and thanks for the warm welcome mate really happy to be here

i am happy with my cooper jacket it seems nice quality and has lots of features of the original a2 jackets thats why i was suprised with some of the comments i found .

a lot of the purists do not seem to rate them is there any reason for this? i no the company made 5000 jackets in the war is the spec different? and are they good enough to be a reenactment jacket ?

i got to get me fettish sorted just right :oops: :lol:

i will be bugging you guys in the near future regarding where to get uniform items etc ;)

Welcome to the forum. There were a few guys from Dorset way at Damyns Hall this year who do 9th AAF, but mainly represent 29th infantry. I'll see if i can track down some contact details and link you up with them.
