RARE**VINTAGE U.S. AIR CORPS TROOPS AERIAL DELIVERY STREAMER POUCH

This is original and was used during the war so it is natural that it will not be in perfect condition.   The streamer only, measures 5 feet 10 inches.  The pouch closure works properly and closes tightly.   The steamer has many frayed areas toward the end of the streamer.  Please look at pictures closely. 

Very hard to find a U.S. Air Corps streamer in this condition or to even find, as the U.S. Air Corps was from approximately 1927--1941.  This is from my collection that I am selling.

What's it for?

Pilots would use the unit to deliver messages, plans, maps, whatever to ground forces. It was also used to judge wind speed and direction before paratroopers "hit the silk" or supplies were parachuted.

When used for messaging, it was dropped at fairly low altitude (sometimes only a couple of hundred feet), so the unit wouldn't drift behind enemy lines. Since the pouch often contained secret maps and dispatches, the last thing the pilot wanted was the contents to fall into enemy hands. The pouch is fairly heavily padded to cushion its contents from impact damage.
