We have been asked by the wife of an actual WW2 Corsair & Hellcat fighter pilot to list this collection. Marion Stanley was credited with 3 confirmed planes shot down and 4 more "probable" from 1943 to 1944. Mr. Stanley spent all of his time in the pacific theater during the war and received (2) purple hearts for wounds received while flying combat missions. Mr. Stanley recently passed away and his widow, Mrs. Dottie Stanley has asked us to assist her in selling his extensive collection of Corsair items. Mr. Stanley loved the F4-U Corsair and has hundreds of items in his collection. Please look at "sellers other listings" to see everything we will be listing for Mrs. Stanley in the next several days. Mrs. Stanley has told us that all the proceeds from this collection will be donated to a local church that helps the less fortunate with water and hot meals. Dottie told us that Marion use to volunteer at their church until he couldn't anymore, he was 93. Thanks for looking and for helping out one of our country's hero's!!
