US PILOTS THEATRE RUSSIAN ESCAPEE PHRASE GUIDE EVASION!
RAREST OF THE PILOT TRAINING PHASE DOCUMENTS!
I COULD NOT TAKE PHOTOS OF EVERY ASPECT OF EVERYTHING IN THIS OFFERING!

Many pages are front and rear printed. This magnificent and comprehensive original item is a direct widow, next of kin purchase and a sad tale. I was doing a display in a retirement facility in 2009 when this woman tells me her late husband was a pilot and he died with no living children and she had nowhere to give the items to. I bought them at a generous price and here is one of the items in that lot, because the pilot was a B-26 Marauder Flight Commander and assigned to the rare unit of the 1st PATHFINDER SQUADRON (Provisional). The Squadron was a specially formed unit (DETACHED SERVICE) squadron that was equipped with radar to lead other flights of B-26 Marauders to targets in bad weather or night with zero visibility. First. I guarantee authenticity of every shred of item is this and every lot I sell as being 100% as advertised:

This rare piece of very early Escape & Evasion material is on era 8 x 10 and is guaranteed printed in Korea during the 1950 deployment of this pilot! It is 5 pages, mostly front and back and has handwritten additions made in the pilot's handwriting. There is also a very, very hyper-rare test, or "phraseology" drill that I imagine was to be taken after to prove proficiency before flying combat missions.

I used to collect E&E items and this is about as rare as they come. You will never find another.

This pilot stayed in the AAF and flew P-82 and then went to Korea (which is where this lot is derived). See his many, many other documented groupings. Includes a bio that was prepared at a local ceremony recognizing this valiant Utah resident's past in 1995. He died in 1962. Great man, great life of service.
