Check the size of picture. There is a byte limit on the forum. You may have to re-size the picture to get under the limit. Don't recall 'for sure', but think it's 300 bytes. Perhaps one of the moderators can confirm.

The writing on it is in a Chinese dialect.

Have you had that translated?

Could tell a lot.

This footlocker is has seen better days but the Tiger painting was added much later.  It would appear the painter did not know how to write Chinese caracters.  :??:
The trunk may have belonged to a serviceman in China?? but I do not think this is an authenic AVG footlocker. Most of the guys I knew had their name added on the trunk.

Thanks for the input guys-
It looks a lot better in person.
The Chinese ? characters are sideways I belive, but have had no luck trying to interpet them. Chuck, thanks for your valuable take on it- I was hopeing it was the real deal

Torrey,  :angel:

There is an actual color photo of an AVG suitcase in Larry Pistole's " Pictorial History of the Flying Tigers". It is decorated  with an original Flying Tiger's  fuselage decal.

My own Army/Navy store purchased foot locker was done the same way. Unfortuneately, after WWII I left mine outside in the weather and it was destroyed. It was very similarto yours.

Your foot locker still has considerable value as is. MUCH  MORE if you can find the original owner.

I was looking through some of my old 1941 AVG snapshots and came upon a photo I took of my bunk area in Keydaw, Burma and there was my footlocker which looked almost new. If you send my your E mail address will send you a copy.
There are some differences in the trunks.
