Aviator Jackets and the D Pocket: Part 3

Here is yet another style of map pocket employed on these Aviation jackets which carried over onto later motorcycle jackets.  This variant had an inset pocket, with a stitched outline.  The zippered top opening opened at an angle. The jacket below was advertised in 1941.  It was made of capeskin, and had two large zippered pockets and a small "match pocket" overtop the map pocket.
