The King Neptune certificate was hard earned! Once you crossed the equator you wanted proof that it was done, otherwise you might have to go through the painful initiation again.

In Korea Maj. Moss took this hit from a 20mm shell while flying over a rice paddy.  A few feet to the right and it would have been very dangerous.

Here are a few photos of the flight jackets.   They're are in excellent condition.  Lt. Moss understandably chose to keep his WW2 squadron patch.  I'm honored to have these mementoes. 

The beautiful winter flight jacket.
