One very kind New Yorker is moving South and needed to sell this beautiful pair of riding boots from Peal & Co. She found me - and I desperately bit. The original owner, Captain H.W. Serig, must have also liked the look of them sitting in his home, because they've barely been worn. Or maybe it was just too hot for tall boots in Hawaii. Old records show that in 1936, a Captain H.W. Serig was appointed Officer-in-Charge of the just formed Radio Repair Section at the Hawaiian Air Depot (see page 11 of this memo), where military planes - and radios - were fully dismantled, repaired and reassembled.
