    This pilot of the Imperial Japanese Navy is in summer flying gear, wearing a fur-lined leather flying helmet, one piece green cotton flying suit and leather flying boots. White silk scarves were common among pilots. Officers of the rank of lieutenant commander or higher carried their swords in action.
