Rcaf Ground Crew Uniforms?

Mon May 07, 2012 6:10 am

Hi guys.

Just spent the last two days up on the wing of the local CAF squadron's Harvard IV at the Alaskan Airmans Show in Anchorage this weekend.

I had a bunch of fun loading kinds into the front seat for cockpit tours but I have a new appreciations for teenagers since they are self-loading.

Anyway I don't think I was dressed to match the aircraft which is in its RCAF training scheme.

Does anybody have a source for RCAF uniforms or mechanic coveralls that would match the era of the aircraft? Surplus or reproduction would probably be best.

Several options available, WWII era RCAF Battledress for groundcrew/aircrew, civilian groundcrew uniform, WD uniform (though I doubt you have the legs for the skirt). Check out http://www.airmuseum.ca/bcatp.html for some more info.
