Vietnam Zippo von Captain Herbert Kaminer "The Skipper" Manship

Folgende Informationen erhielt ich von der Enkelin des Vorbesitzers:

"A Vietnam War treat! This Zippo flip-top lighter flew with my grandfather in the war."

"This lighter was manufactured at least ten years before the start of the Vietnam War, but wasn't giving to my grandfather by my great-grandfather until he started flying for the Navy. My grandfather specialized in heat-seeking Naval missile missions and flew in offensive strategic missions during the fall of Saigon. It's my understanding that the lighter sat in the cockpit with him always as a good luck charm."

"My grandfather was Captain Herbert Kaminer "The Skipper" Manship."

Man findet diesen Piloten u.a. auch im Absolventenbuch des United States Naval War College:

Leider fand ich bisher noch keine Informationen, welche direkt mit dem Vietnam Krieg in Beziehung stehen. Nichts desto trotz dürfte es wohl eines der ältesten Vietnam Zippos sein.
