6247 French Air Force issue Cebe 4000 Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldFrench Air Force issue Cebe 4000 Flying Goggles - An increasingly rare set of 1940 dated goggles with the frame, hinge, lenses are all being in great condition and no issues. The double elastic back strap is complete as shown and nice to see the second set which often get lost on this pattern. The clips for attaching to the frame are perfect and full working order. The original curved lenses are fitted and again great condition. The rubber is generally good but a little age wear as shown but should not cause any issues for display. The leather face pad is nice clean condition and of course helps the integrity of the rubber outer. The original issue box is a further bonus and is fully stamped with full details as well as a May 1940 date so these could well have served during the Battle of France and with the Free French during the battle of Britain. The top strap is missing from the box however. The set is completed by the instruction sheets but these are copies taken from an original. This a is only the second set of Cebe 4000 we have had in the last 10 years so to describe them as scarce is no understatement!
4725 Luftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - An excellent example of the standard Winter pattern with a leather shell and sheepskin lining. Generally in excellent issued condition with all correct snaps and buckles in place, together with provision for attaching a 3 point oxygen mask. The metal parts show minor age related rust. The helmet is fully wired with long communication cord fitted with a 4 pin jack plug marked Fl 27650 and also carries lozenge shaped throat microphones embossed Ln 26779-2. Inside the label is in place confirming the helmet was made Siemens and Gerat nos 124-436A. The label carries various other ink stamps but these are not clear. The Perspex receiver covers are still in place and not damaged like so many. The only issue with this helmet is the inner brow lining pad has been removed at some stage but this is not visible when on display. An excellent display helmet in above the average condition.
PC191 Model 295 Luftwaffe flying Goggles by O.W. Wagener & Co Rathenow - Click for the bigger picture SoldModel 295 Luftwaffe flying Goggles by O.W. Wagener & Co Rathenow - the aluminium frame confirm this example is late war production, as earlier examples featured painted brass construction. These is clearly marked O.W. confirming manufacturer. The rubber is in first class condition and we have not seen better. The classic oversized lenses are the rather sexy tinted ones which look great on display and are in close to mint condition with no fogging or other damage. The Germans only fitted first class lenses to their goggles and certainly no nasty Perspex as used in period RAF goggles. The back strap is original in olive drab elastic and still elastic and fitted with correct connectors and adjusters and is named to T.Konczy. Period Luftwaffe goggles are getting increasingly hard to find now and this set is as good as we have had here. A near identical example is illustrated in Mick Prodger’s excellent book ‘Vintage Flying Helmets’ at the bottom of page 243. If you can afford a top draw set grab these whilst you can as they won’t be here long!
PC194 R.F.C. Period Triplex A3 Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldR.F.C. Period Triplex A3 Goggles - an excellent and scarce example which were sold commercially as motoring goggles but were used extensively by Royal Flying Corps pilots in the early years of WW1. They come complete with their original leatherette carrying case that is clearly marked Motor Goggles ‘ A 3’ Model. The goggles themselves are in excellent original condition with yellow tinted lenses fitted. The aluminium lens frame is stamped Patent nos 127545 and below Registration number 667594. The cotton back strap shows some age wear but fine for display and the leather attachment points are both clearly stamped TRIPLEX XXX Registered Trade Mark. The inside of the goggle frame is lined with faux fur and again all is in good shape. An identical set is illustrated in Mick Prodger’s excellent Vintage Flying Helmets book bottom right on page 135 and described as ‘Typical early war goggles of similar design to the Triplex C-2, but without the laminated Triplex lenses.’ These would display very well in conjunction with an RFC period aviators flying helmet. These early goggles are hard to find in any condition so exceptional to find to this standard and with the original issue case.
PC193 RAF Mk V111 Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk V111 Flying Goggles - Stores ref. no. 22C/939. This pattern was introduced in late 1943 and continued in service until the 1970's. This example is complete with the original issue box where the stores reference number has been altered to read 22C/4466583 as well as an indent number and RW 0156 383. The box contains the original demisting cloth and tin both dated 1942 and to complete the set it comes with a spare set of tinted lenses as issued. The goggles are in sound issued condition with just minor paint rub to the brass frames The leather face pads are good whilst the inner side shows service use. The clear lenses fitted are in excellent shape with none of the normal fogging. The original elastic back strap carries some rust staining but is still elastic. To summarise a nice original boxed set with all the extras. These would display well with the RAF C type we have just list
PC192 RAF C type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF C type Flying Helmet - a 2nd pattern with an internal wiring loom which was introduced into RAF service in 1944 in excellent original condition. It is clearly stamped with the military broad arrow property mark and the stores reference number 22C/879 making this a size 3 helmet at 7 1/8-7 3/8th inches. The leather is still soft and generally above average condition with just the odd rub and scuff. All the goggle and oxygen mask snaps are in place and working and the chin strap retains its elasticity. The loom is in near perfect condition with the correct wartime bell shaped jack plug and the classic ‘hangman’s loop’ has been added to shorten the cord length. Receivers are marked 10A/13466 and the rubber receiver carriers are in great shape. Inside the lining is in excellent condition with no holes or damage. The size stamping is still clear and hand written is R.W.S. which we assume to be the initials of an original owner. The name Hampton has also been added but sadly no history with this one. The velvet brow pad is again perfect. Overall an excellent example of this classic RAF WW11/early post war flying helmet. We are also listing today a set of RAF Mk V111 goggles that would display perfectly with this example.
6018 WW11 British Military Issue Handcuffs by R.C.S. - Click for the bigger picture SoldWW11 British Military Issue Handcuffs by R.C.S. - this set are very well built in the backstrap Derby style. Whilst not our specialist area we understand this pattern were designed to restrain the strongest and hardest men in wartime. The handcuffs are marked on the barrel with 20 and below R.C.S 1941, indicating they were made by Ruben, Craddock & Sons for wartime use in 1941. They are also marked with a broad arrow property mark and 86 thus confirming their military provenance. The single key is marked 260 on both sides. The locking mechanism works perfectly despite being being 72 years old and the metal shows a wonderful vintage patina. This set would make a welcome addition to a specialist or general military collection. I have a near identical example in my own collection which are 1943 dated and Air Ministry marked so it is quite possible these also served with the RAF but we can't say for sure which of the services they were issued to. Measure 9.5" (24 cm)
4727 Curtiss Jenny JN4A Builders plate - Click for the bigger picture SoldCurtiss Jenny JN4A Builders plate - an incredibly rare original example marked ‘The Curtiss Aeroplane co Buffalo, N.Y. U.S.A’. The aircraft number is detailed as 5605 and the model is JN4A so we imagine it would be possible to check the airframe this plate came from. Our research indicates the Jenny first flew in 1915 and whilst 6, 813 were built in total only 471 JN4A variants were produced. Interestingly on the back of the plaque someone has scratched August 15th 1917 and we speculate this might have been the date the aircraft came out of service and the plate removed from the airframe. If any visitors can add any relating history we would be happy to add to our description. The plaque was purchased privately here in England and as the Jenny served with the Royal Flying Corps with both 24 and 25 Squadrons, as well as with the RNAS, so perhaps 5605 was one of these aircraft? The plaque is chromed with the company details set in enamel. We have certainly never seen another for sale so grab this piece of aviation history whilst you can! Small but beautifully formed at 2.2" diameter (5.5 cm)
4550 German Army Coffee or Tea mug - Click for the bigger picture SoldGerman Army Coffee or Tea mug - an essential bit of German Army kit! This features on its base a Third Reich Waffenamt identifying the cup as belonging to the German Army, or Heer and is dated 1942. The manufacturer is Concordia. In good issued condition. Measures 4" high (10cm)
4548 Battle of Britain period Luftwaffe Mess Plate - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain period Luftwaffe Mess Plate - very crisply marked on reverse with Luftwaffe Eagle and Fl. U.V. Below it has a crest which confirms the German Military Reichwaffenamt. It is also dated 1940 so certainly would have served through the Battle of Britain. It is in good used condition and measures 9.5” (24cm)
6200 Battle of Britain RAF Pilots Bust - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain RAF Pilots Bust - we understand these were made using 90% white Italian Carrara marble giving it an authentic look and feel. The pilot depicted is wearing the classic flight gear associated with the Battle Of Britain. He is sporting a fully wired B type helmet, MK111A goggles and a 1932 pattern Mae West over his no 1 Uniform as well as a classic silk flyers scarf. We are not sure if the bust represents a specific pilot but prefer to think he is a generic sculpture of ‘One of the Few’. He weighs in at 2.2 Kilos so please check with us for a delivered price before ordering. Measures 8” (20 cm) No makers marks.
6199 RAF Mess Plate - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mess Plate - almost certainly dating from WW11 and judging by the crude build quality we are assuming it served in the Other Ranks Mess! The rim carries the RAF logo and above a King Crown. On the reverse the makers marks indicate Bristol Established 1683. Some age crazing but generally good issued condition. This plate comes with a sprung wall hanger, if required. Measures 9.5” (24cm)
6201 RAF Trench Art Cigarette Box - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Trench Art Cigarette Box - a very nicely worked example in mahogany with an RAF Albatross badge applied to the lid This would appear to have been ‘borrowed’ from an Officers forage cap badge! When opened two fitted trays pop up with each holding 20 cigarettes. Elastic strips hold the cigarettes in place which are now slightly stretched. We don’t have any provenance with it but suspect may have been created in the Middle East or North Africa in WW11. it measures 8.5” x 5” and stands 3” tall (22 cm x 13 cm x 8 cm).
6149 RAF Form 700 Aircraft Log Book Inspection Bag - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Form 700 Aircraft Log Book Inspection Bag - a critical piece of kit without which RAF aircraft simply did not fly! The Form 700 bag effectively contained the individual aircrafts log book and carried a full record of any problems or issues the airframe might have suffered. These were were reported to the ground crew using the Form 700 and the four page flight engineers log was handed in for review and signature after return from a trip. Our bag seems to be made from the same material as the hugely desirable navigators bag. It shows normal service grub to the outside and with details stencilled on the front as show. When this came in we had not history with it but after a bit of detective work we speculated KJ 880 could have been the A/C registration. We have been able to establish KJ880 was designated to to an RAF Dakota 1V and a little of her WW11 and post war history is summarised below : C-47B-5-DK, 43-48564 D26Aug44 - KJ880 RAF Montreal 110ct44 - 147 Sq - 1333 (TS)CU 18Nov46 - Med ME 08Jul48 - Iraq Comm Flt 22Jul48 - 22MU/UK 28Sep50 - G-AMSF BKS Aerocharter Ltd "Whitten Brown" R21Apr52 - BKS Air Tpt Ltd ROlJan54 - Op as XF646 for troop contracts during 1954 - Crewsair Ltd Jan59 - Don Everall (Avn) Ltd R26Mar59 - Alares Developments Ltd Jun60 - Cr 05Mar62 Elmdon Apt, Birmingham. Sadly the bag is now empty but an interesting an unusual artefact the like of which we have not had here before.
6198 RAF Issue Aircrew Stop Watch 6B/221 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Issue Aircrew Stop Watch 6B/221 - this example dates from 1940 when it was issued as a 6B/117 the standard RAF code for a General Purpose stop watch. The instrument then clearly went back to the stores in 1941 and was over stamped with stores reference code 6B/221 with a new reference number and re issue date of 1941. The code 6B/221 indicates it was for use as a substitute watch and not when I high degree of accuracy was required, as by a Navigator. According to Ziggy Weslolowski in his excellent book on Military Timepieces this could have been used by a Lancaster pilot as a back up mounted on his panel should other instruments pack up on an Op. This example does run for some seconds but the hands then sticks and this is how it was when it came in. We would imagine not a massive job to get it serviced/cleaned but we are now offering for sale in A/F condition as an interesting example showing the evolution of wartime stop watches. It carries a large and crisp Kings Crown engraving to the rear of the case.
6159 RNAS Pilots Note and Radio Beacon Flight Board - Click for the bigger picture SoldRNAS Pilots Note and Radio Beacon Flight Board - this example would appear to have been made up in the workshops rather than being an issue item but it exudes charm. The item is made from varnished marine ply and on the from is a sheet of clear Perspex held in place by bulldog clips to allow a note pad or page from a chart to be inserted. The reverse carries a circular diagram to the top with what we believe to be radio beacon codes. Below this is a list of 13 Royal Naval Air Stations with details of their listening channels, identity and ‘safe sector’ Further information is shown concerning heights as well as a Naval C.G.A Whiskey’ legend (Ground Control Approach) And a final reference to ‘Fixer Service –Victor’ but the meaning of this is lost on me. We suspect no huge age but a nice example of more recent RNAS flight equipment. Measures 11” x 5.5” (28 cm x 14 cm)
4737 Luft-Navigationskarte Flight Chart dated 27 June 1940 - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuft-Navigationskarte Flight Chart dated 27 June 1940 - a superb original example covering a major part of Western Europe including Switzerland, Luxemburg, Denmark, Poland, Rumania and of course large parts of Germany (including ‘The Big City’) and Austria. Clearly marked with the Luftwaffe insignia to the top and issued in Berlin in 1940 so a genuine Battle of Britain survivor. This is a paper chart so minor age related wear on the folds and some pin holes to corners but seeing it is now 73 years old it is in exceptional condition. It comes in a card case marked Union-Mappe nr 494/1 We can’t say for sure this is original with the map but it seems likely. The case shows rather more age wear then the chart! It does have a name written in ink but with the Gothic script we have been unable to decipher. This is a large chart measuring when unfolded 51” x 46” (130 cm x 117 cm).
6168 German V1 flying bomb FZG-76 'Everacting' fuse model 80A - Click for the bigger picture SoldGerman V1 flying bomb FZG-76 'Everacting' fuse model 80A - the V-1 (or doodlebug as it was more often known) was the worlds first guided missile and the first was launched on London on 13 June 1944. Our fuse is the model 80A and was fitted in the rear fuse pocket. The arming pin hidden beneath the screw cap would be pulled before launch. This enables a pin from the clockwork mechanism to be pulled out thus setting the clock in motion and at the same time removes the safety cap under the head of the striker. The mechanism can be set to run from 4 and up to 132 minutes. On completing of the pre set time a pin engages and the firing pin moves against the cap. The flash from the cap then detonates the bomb and this mechanical fuse guarantees the bomb will detonate irrespective of angle of landing or if the rest of the fusing system failed. Our fuse is correctly marked on the ring pull retainer 80A and much of the original field grey paint is in place with a little rust on the screw cap. In view of the fusing system detailed above very few of these survive today and even fewer in the condition as here. Measures 3” high x 2.25” diameter. (8 cm x6 cm)
6141 Lunkenheimer Primer - Click for the bigger picture SoldLunkenheimer Primer - We believe these were used to prime the engine before starting on aircraft such as Aeronca 7EC, but believe it should fit aircraft such as Luscombe, Cessna, Taylorcraft, Aeroncas and Piper Cubs. The design dates back to the 1940’s although we have no idea of the age of ours. This is offered for sale a a collectable but it may be possible to get it back into airworthy condition or could be used for a static rebuild. What you see is what you get with this one! Measures 6" (pump only) 15cm
6142 RAF Directional Indicator , Mk1A - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Directional Indicator , Mk1A - These instruments were fitted in the blind flying panel of all RAF and Fleet Air Arm WW11 aircraft and were designed to enable the pilot to plot a stable directional reference for accurate course steering. The instrument would be synchronised with the main compass before take off and required a venturi to work. The Mk1A entered service in 1940/1941 and remained in production until the 1950’s. This one carries the RAF stores reference number 6A/1298, a broad arrow and a further number 2191/40. An additional plaque has been fitted indicating a VPI filer has been fitted at some stage. It also carries a label issued by the Royal navy showing it had been reconditioned in 1955 and tested again in 1958. This direction indicator is in good issued condition but on offer as a collectable only and would be perfect for a replica Spitfire instrument panel project. Measures 4.5” x4.5” in front plate (12 cm x 12 cm)and is 5.5” deep (14 cm)
