WORLD WAR TWO US ARMY AIR CORPS SURVIVAL KIT SIGNALING MIRROR:  An integral component of every air crewman’s survival kit, this Signaling Mirror allowed a downed airman to attract the attention of, and communicate with, search and rescue crews via a Morse code system of dots and dashes sent via reflections of the sun on the mirror.  A clear circle in the center of the mirror allowed the sender to “sight” the mirror on the intended receiver in order to be sure the flashes were directed in the right direction. 

The mirror surface is complete and intact with no scratches and the opaque black surface on the reverse, with the printed instructions, is 90% complete, showing only minor wear and with all of the text remaining legible. 

A nice piece to display with other US Army Air Corps equipment.  (0644)  $25
