United States Navy Fighter Pilot Series

“The great British fighter ace Johnnie Johnson wrote: ‘There were many outstanding American fighter pilots… the Navy and Marine pilots that fought the Pacific battles were among the bravest and most determined of WWII’. Although my WWII air combat experience was in the European Theater, I endorse that view”

Brigadier General Robin Olds, March, 1984


 


Special Edition:

 

"Captain Robert Coats USN, NC, DFC & Commander Alex Vraciu USN, NC, DFC"

TWO of the United States Navy’s top-scoring carrier fighter pilots of the Pacific Theater, each having achieved triple-ace status, combine to make this a highly collectable signature ensemble. Both highly decorated with the Navy Cross, just one notch below the Medal of Honor.

Both fighter pilots flew the redoubtable Grummann F6F Hellcat off the decks of famous carriers – HornetIntrepidand Lexington – taking part in some of the hardest fought air battles of the Pacific air war. In addition to their high air-to-air scores, both pilots destroyed many aircraft on the ground, a quantity of enemy shipping, and survived parachute jumps, ditchings following battle damage, and torpedo attacks on their ships.

BACKGROUND, PROVENANCE & AUTHENTICITY

Each autograph was personally collected in the early 1980s by Mr Pat Barnard, who had founded the Military Gallery during the 1970's. These original signatures formed part of a project supported by Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader, Group Captain Leonard Cheshire VC, Air Vice Marshal Johnnie Johnson, Brigadier General Robin Olds and General Adolf Galland, all of whom advised and helped Mr Barnard collect the signatures.

Every Autograph (signature) offered by the publisher with this series of "Ensembles" is guaranteed to be original and genuine. Our reputation depends upon our integrity: We do not buy signatures from outside sources where it is often difficult to ascertain authenticity. We have the undisputed provenance for each signature which means that every Certificate of Authenticity supplied by the publisher is as genuine as the signatures it supports.

The Certificate of Authenticity supplied with each original autograph is authorised by the publisher, therefore making the Certificate a valuable document in itself. To counter the proliferation of forged signatures in the market today, and to guarantee the genuine nature of your investment, please keep your Certificate safe and secure. It will ensure there can never be any doubt as to the value of your collection in years to come.
