    This small uniform belonged to my grandfather when he was young and then to my father when he was young. Now I have it and I want to know more about it! The jacket is only about 1' across, the whole uniform is to scale and fits about a 2-3 year old.
    The first picture is of the whole uniform.
    The second picture is of the shoulder patch (I think it's an Air Corps patch.)
    **My Great Grandfather, my grandfather's father, was in the Air Corps in WWII**
    The third picture is of the patch above the right breast pocket. (I'm unsure of what this patch is/means.)
    The fourth picture is of the inside of the jacket. It reads...
    "P.J. McCORMICK / 00712-4"
    Paul Joseph McCormick is my great grandfather's name and my grandfather's name. What do these numbers mean?
    I'm hoping you Military & Wartime experts can help me out!

      Nice WW2 child's uniform.

      Mom or Dad did a great job in adding the patch and honorable discharge patch to mimic your G- Grandfather's actual uniform!

      Do have any snapshots of the uniform being worn?

      Thanks for sharing.

      I just noticed the wings on his chest-- post a blow up of the wings and I can provide some more information.

      They appear to be shirt sized wings, but I cannot see the type from your images.

      Just Appraised at $100. It wouldn't be worth as much if it were separated from my family!
