PC190 RAF 13 Squadron Badge Panel - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 13 Squadron Badge Panel - 13 Squadron was formed in 1915 and took part in both World Wars as well as the first Gulf War. The squadron badge, as painted on this panel, carries the legend "Adjuvamus Tuendo"(We assist by watching.) 13 Squadron have operated a variety of aircraft over the years including the Martinsyde G.100, F.E.2, SPAD VII and XIII, the Sopwith Dolphin, Lysander, Mosquito, Meteor and Canberra. From 1990 it operated the Panavia Tornado but the Squadron was disbanded in 2011 but reformed 2012 flying the MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aerial vehicle from RAF Waddington. Whilst we have no specific history with it we were advised by a previous owner the panel had been cut from a Mosquito but we have so far been unable to categorically identify the aircraft type. The panel is constructed from wood with linen doped to the outer side. The varnished interior shows some original framing and numerous construction numbers and we would be happy to supply detailed photographs if anyone can assist us with a firm identification. In the mean time it is offered for sale as an unidentified panel featuring a fine painted badge of RAF 13 Squadron. The panel measures approximately 30"x 24" (76cm x 61cm) and would make a superb addition to an aviation collection but would look equally at home on the Mess wall!
PC189 Luftwaffe Model 306 Fliegerschutzbrille by O.W.Wagner & Co - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Model 306 Fliegerschutzbrille by O.W.Wagner & Co - flying goggles model 306 which are often referred to as by the generic term Leitz. This set are in average plus issued condition. The rubber face cushions show some age wear but are generally good for display purposes. The central nose bridge is good and is fitted with two small adjust screws. It is maker marked to the reverse O.W.The black painted alloy frames are good and are fitted with above average glass lenses. The original back strap is still elastic and in very good shape. The original issue card box and spare lenses are now absent. These goggles are now getting hard to find in any condition; these are realistically priced to reflect their overall condition
PC188 RAF Dinghy Seat Pack Type A Mark 3* - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Dinghy Seat Pack Type A Mark 3* - stores reference 27C/2088 and designed to carry the single-man fighter pilot Type K dinghy was carried folded within the pack attached to the seat type parachute in place of the usual Sorbo rubber seat cushion. Manufactured in heavy olive drab cotton canvas, broadly rectangular in shape with a separate cover attached with press-studs. These packs have internal stowage pockets to house the accessories not carried within the dinghy itself. This example benefits from being fitted with an emergency rubber water cushion for drinking purposes stamped 27C/2138 and enclosed within a canvas zipped cover marked 27C/2138 and Jecco. The exterior of the pack carries a multi-lingual label stitched to the cover in we believe English, French, Czech and Polish. The pack is complete withy lanyard and connectors to attach to the '41 pattern Mae West. The whole set is in virtually mint faultless condition and would be impossible to improve upon.
PC187 RAF 1941 Pattern Sidcot Suit stores reference 22C/777 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 1941 Pattern Sidcot Suit stores reference 22C/777 - this was the final wartime development of the Sidcot suit of WW11. Identical to the 1940 pattern but with the addition of an electrical wiring system to allow use in conjunction with D type heated gloves and boot liners and was favoured for use by aircrew of Bomber Command. Manufacture in heavy olive drab canvas it was designed to be used with a kapok liner for additional warmth. This is a very clean example and benefits from being fitted with all original zips which are all AM and Kings Crown marked. All in working order with just a single tooth missing on the left sleeve zip. The electrical wiring loom is still in place with the correct snaps at wrist and ankles. Inside the suit is also very clean with a clear AM marked label indicating the suit is large size 5 suitable for height 5'10" to 5'11". All original buttons are fitted and this suit would be hard to improve upon particularly in this hard to find large size. Ideal for display or re-enactment purposes.
PC186 RAF Observers Parachute pack - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Observers Parachute pack - whilst this example has had its label removed the stores reference number is 15A/141. The two point detachable chest pack was stored separately in the aircraft and designed to be clipped to the Observers harness by the engagement of a pair of steel loops mounted on the reverse with a pair of hooded snap-hooks located on the chest. This example is manufactured the usual sandy coloured cotton canvas which shows average service wear. It is complete with all the webbing grab handles and is fitted with the D-ring ripcord handle stamped IAC (Irvin Air Chute); the rip cord handle housing shows some stitch repairs. The pack is fitted with a full set on elastic bungees which show some stretching but overall it is in very good used condition with light soiling and minor wear to the grab handles. No canopy fitted but the pack is stuffed with a polypropylene block so has the correct shape for display or re-enactment purposes. These are now getting extremely difficult to find and particularly so with all the ‘plumbing’.Please check out the complementary Observers harness which we have also just listed.
PC185 RAF Observers parachute harness Stores Refrence 15A/137 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Observers parachute harness Stores Refrence 15A/137 - manufactured by G & T.L. & stamped with serial number 92369. Designed for use with clip-on chest-type parachute packs. This is a genuine RAF/British manufactured example rather than more commonly found Canadian version. Cream/white webbing with a central black fleck;both shoulder straps are stamped AM with a Kings Crown property mark. The harness features the fully rounded QR box as fitted to wartime British harnesses as opposed to the D shaped QRB found on RCAF and post war issue examples. The pack attachment clips are again in perfect condition and fully functioning. Fitted with an original back pad which is again in good condition but some minor staining;it does not seem to have ever carried a label. The harness is well above average condition and the QRB functions perfectly. Mick Prodger's excellent 'Luftwaffe V RAF Flight Equipment' features a near identical example by the same maker illustrated on page 18. A very fine original example of what is becoming increasingly hard to find. Please see the complementary observer parachute pack we have also just listed.
PC184 One Flight Too Many - Click for the bigger picture SoldOne Flight Too Many - One Flight Too Many I was delighted to received a copy of this excellent volume for Christmas and can recommend it as an excellent read. It covers the often forgotten art of Photographic Reconnaissance (PR) and is written by a former PR Spitfire pilot, Jimmy Taylor. It gives a very clear description of what he had to do, the aircraft and cameras he was given, how he planned and took his photographs, and how he navigated his way, alone and unarmed under constant observation by enemy radar, to his distant targets. This is also Jimmy Taylor’s autobiography, so the reader has access to his frank contemporary diary of autumn 1944 and goes with him on his exciting sorties, including when he was chased by a then-unknown German jet, and his last one, when his engine blew up and forced him to parachute into a part of eastern Holland and led to his eventual capture with details of the heroic behaviour of the Dutch Resistance. Taylor's story is told with humour and modesty and makes for fascinating reading, and is enhanced with hundreds of photographs taken at the time, including some of his own sorties. This is a great book in every sense: it will enlighten readers who are curious about the work of the PR squadrons and will fascinate aviation enthusiasts of all ages myself included! We do not actually stock this volume but it can be purchased for £27.50 plus shipping from the distributor, YPD Books at www. ypdbooks. com or from your local bookseller. Pages: 756 Cover: Hard Author: Jimmy Taylor
5295 Fleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - This pattern differs from the RAF version in having zip receiver cups fitted and as a result is often mis-identified as an RAF B type. This example is in average + issued condition with the leather shell showing some age wear. It is fully wired and interestingly the receivers fitted are USN/USAAF model ANB-H-1, manufactured by Western Electric and we speculate the helmet may have found its way to a US airman in WWII. The receiver cups also have Gosport tube attachments fitted. The wiring loom shows some fraying. The inside is good issued condition. No size markings but we believe this helmet corresponds to a decent RAF size 3. Not mint but a very decent disply example on offer at a realistic price.
6100 RAF Bino Prism U-Boat Spotting Mk.IV Binoculars - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Bino Prism U-Boat Spotting Mk.IV Binoculars - A very clean set marked with stores ref. 6E/383, featuring 5 x 40 cemented prisms and were the very first wartime binoculars to use coated lenses. This design is fixed focus and intended for aerial spotting and maritime reconnaissance. The same pattern was also used by Fleet Air Arm crews. The serial number on these is 5084 which seem to date them to a WWII manufacture. The rubber face guard was designed to help the user maintain night vision. The Mk IV's were made by Ross for the RAF and first entered service in 1941. The optics are still crisp and this set benefits from being complete with it transit case. The neck strap is not original.
6102 RAF WWII Panel Clock Mark IIB - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF WWII Panel Clock Mark IIB - This example carries a serial number to the dial and is dated 1944. The dial is also marked 8 days. The case is made from moulded Bakelite and it is wound and the hands set from the adjuster located at the 5 o'clock position. The reverse of the case carries an embossed King's Crown and AM. Whilst the clock will run, it stops after some time so would benefit from a clean or service in order to restore to full working order. On offer therefore in A/F condition with a price to reflect this.
6101 RAF Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - A very clean example stores ref. 6A/1248 and complete with its original transit box. Both the instrument and box are date marked 1944. The compass card moves freely although the compass oil has a small air bubble in it. The sighting prism is perfect and whilst for sale as a collectable, the instrument appears to be in good working order. These compasses were used in flight for taking bearings when the fixed type of observer's compass could not be used. Overall length 9" (21cm)
6076 20MM Aircraft Cannon Feed Shute - Click for the bigger picture Sold20MM Aircraft Cannon Feed Shute - We were advised by the previous owner this item was originally fitted to a De Havilland Mosquito, although this pattern was used on a number of wartime and early post war aircraft. It has numerous numbers stamped on it including C207027 ISIS & AST316 in a circle and W3 in another circle. The shute has a sprung catch arrangement and it looks to be in generally excellent used condition but for sale purely as a collectable. Measures 11" (28cm).
3757 Luftwaffe Grey Leather Flight Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Grey Leather Flight Jacket - This example features a so far unidentified cloth patch to the left breast, showing a prancing horse and the number 72. On the left shoulder is a further badge embroidered 1/151 and Baren Stark and an image of a helicopter which we believe to represent a Sikorsky CH-53 Sea Stallion. A winged badge as well as a name tag have been removed from the jacket. It also carries rank tabs and the national flag. Inside the zip pocket an original issue label indicates the size as a GR 9 which we estimate would comfortable fit chest size 40-41" (100-104cm). The jacket was manufactured in May 1988. Knits and zips all in good shape and a very practical and wearable flight jacket.
5584 RAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket - A very clean example of the increasingly rare hooded jacket with so many having had the high visibility yellow hood cut away post war to facilitate motor cycle use. This jacket has original zips fitted; the most zip is an early specification Dot, while the sleeve zips are AM Lightning. Inside the leather hanger is in place, although there is no sign of a label having ever been fitted. The leather panels are all in good shape with just one small repair patch to the rear of the left armpit but this has been very neatly applied. Minor wear to waist and cuff fur, whilst the belt is good with all the orignal eyelets in place. Having no label, we have estimated the size to be a good fit on a 38-40" chest. This would display well with item 6109, the thermally insulated trousers we have also listed today.
6109 RAF Irvin Flying Suit Thermally Insulated Trousers - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Irvin Flying Suit Thermally Insulated Trousers - Designed to be worn in conjunction with the insulated flying jacket and much favoured by bomber aircrew in WWII. This example carries a label indicating a size 3 example, stores ref. 22C/319. These came from a aviation museum display depicting a Wellington crew member. The leather is in generally excellent issued condition and the fur lining is exceptional. The original brasses are fitted and remain elastic. The only issue with this set is that one zip is missing the puller while the other is missing the puller arm. Both zips are therefore sewn closed but this does not detract from a display point of view. These would pair up nicely with the Coastal Command Irvin flying jacket we have also listed today. Competitively priced.
6106 RAF C Type Flying Helmet 2nd Pattern - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF C Type Flying Helmet 2nd Pattern - Classic example of the internally wired helmet which entered service in 1944. This helmet was displayed in an aviation museum for many years and is of museum quality. The leather shell is exceptional with no damage or flaking. The stores ref. no. 22C/880 is clearly embossed in the leather confirming this is a size 4, making it the largest size offered. This is a fully wired helmet with receivers, loom and a bell plug fitted. We have no idea if the avionics are working, so like all items on offer for sale as a collectable. Inside the lining shows signs of service use and for an issued helmet, this example would be hard to improve upon, particularly in this desirable large size.
6089 RAF King's Crown Match Box Cover - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF King's Crown Match Box Cover - Manufactured from metal, the cover carries RAF wings logo to the front and an edited version of Winston Churchill's "Never in the field of human conflict..." speech to the reverse with a 1940 date. Inside is an empty Bryant and May match box showing some age wear. These covers were first issued in 1941. In excellent original condition and would complement the RAF cigarette case we have also listed today, item 6119. Measures 2.25" x 1.5" (6cm x 4 cm)

Aircraft Recognition - Click for the bigger picture SoldAircraft Recognition

First published in 1941, this is a revised edition of 1943. Interestingly on the opening page a note states "Leave this book at a post office when you have finished it, so men and women of the services may enjoy it too!" No mention is made of enemy agents who clearly would have gleaned much from the 192 pages which are packed full of illustrations and line drawings. The volume covers both allied and axis aircraft types current in the mid years of WWII. Minor age wear.

6093 Supermarine Swift 1/72 Scale Balsa Model by Bateman - Click for the bigger picture SoldSupermarine Swift 1/72 Scale Balsa Model by Bateman - On offer is a completed painted model with Royal Navy decals together with a part made similar model in its original packaging and complete with building instructions. We estimate these models date from the 1950's so contemporary with the full size aircraft which while pretty, did not have the most illustrious service career and was replaced with the far more successful Hawker Hunter in 1961. Wing span of model 5.5" (14cm)
6090 Air Ministry Issue Carpenter's Rule - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Issue Carpenter's Rule - A fine early example made from warranted boxwood by the quality Birmingham manufacturer J. Rabone & Sons, Birmingham. The rule is clearly embossed with A.M., King's Crown and is dated 1931. The rule extends, utilising solid brass hinges and while showing minor age wear, is in remarkable condition. Extended length 24" (61cm)
