    Hello, I inherited this from my great Uncle who served in WW2, although he was not in the Air Force. I think it's 1943 or 1944.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Werber Sportswear was awarded the 44-10472 contract in the 1944 fiscal year.

    That looks like it could have rolled off the factory floor only yesterday, you've kept it in really good order. Nice!

    Thanks. It didn't look like that when I got it, but with some careful cleaning it came around.

    Really nice B-11. Good examples are getting hard to find.
