Thank you to SCOTT & NORMA WATSON for their wonderful donation of the following World War II artifacts
--Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Pillow Sham. We didn't have one, so it is a great addition!!
--US Military, 1945 Mess Kit.
--Star Finder and Identifier Kit, from the Hydrographic Office of the Navy.
--Three Technical Manuals published by the War Department from 1940, 1941, and 1942: Aerial Photography, Celestial Navigation, and Air Navigation.
--Naval Aviation Flare Gun which is rather unique. It has on the barrel a unique locking system where it would lock into a port to fire a flare outside the aircraft.
--And also a 45 Shoulder Holster which was one of the types used by the pilots for their sidearm.
These items are on display now at the Museum. Thank you Scott and Norma for your generous donations and for enriching our Museum with these historic artifacts, for the public to enjoy!
