3697 Embroidered RAF Crest - Click for the bigger picture SoldEmbroidered RAF Crest - Framed and glazed, the embroidery features the RAF crest surmounted by a King's Crown and below the legend 'Per Adua Ad Astra' meaning 'Through adversity to the Stars.' The embroidery is nicely worked and the colours are still vibrant. The cotton backer shows some stains but these do not effect the crest. Frame measures 12.5"x10.5"(32cm x27cm)
3359 Luftwaffe Parachute Remnant - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Parachute Remnant - Mounted in a glazed frame is a small section of parachute with a typed label which is attached to a section of partly painted alloy stating 'Part of a German parachute from an enemy crewmember of a Heinkel bomber which crashed on April 28th 1941 after a raid on Portsmouth.' Above the label is a photograph of a Luftwaffe pilot at the controls of his aircraft. Sadly we have no other provenance with this item. Frame measures 12" x 9.5" (31cm x24cm).
3356 Luftwaffe Aircraft Seat Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Aircraft Seat Frame - This item is reported to have been recovered from Lubek in 1945 and brought back to the UK as a souvenir. It was then re-upholstered and used for many years by the owner's children in their playroom which was the condition in which we purchased it. When the cover was removed we found a paper label reading German Jet Komet Pilot's Seat Lubek 1945. We also discovered under the paint an original data plate which is somewhat faded but appears to be stamped RGS145 and below 27-H-1970 and 5783-14, although this is not entirely clear. The chair features four rubber pads carrying ink stamps which are difficult to decipher but could possibly idicate a flight school. The frame which appears to be aluminium alloy is finished in original black paint. If any visitors can give us a positive ID, we would be happy to add that to our description, but in the meantime it remains a mystery item but no doubt with a story to tell! Measures 15" wide by 16" deep and 20" high(38cm x 42cm x 53cm).
4268 DH 82 Tiger Moth Elevator - Click for the bigger picture SoldDH 82 Tiger Moth Elevator - While we do not normally get involved with airframes, we just had to have this one! This item was recently discovered in a shed where it has lain undiscovered for many years. Judging by the canvas colour, we assume this to have been from an RAF Tiger Moth. It carries a label detailing serial no. DHLA/R/DH R/E/1657 and below drawing no. U1974 and 199. NO16. On the rear of the elevator is the stencil LH which we presume to mean it is from the left side. A further stencil reads DPD 752 and we speculate this could indicate a manufacture date of July 1952. The canvas is in good taut condition, although as the item comes with no paperwork, is for sale purely as a wall piece, but seeing the excellent condition in the right hands, it could possibly be made airworthy again. Measures 54" (138cm).
2593 Italian/Luftwaffe Flight Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldItalian/Luftwaffe Flight Jacket - This is an interesting one! When purchased we were advised that this jacket had belonged to a Luftwaffe crew member in WWII. In general terms the design is similar to the blue grey summer jacket but intriguingly it features a dark sheepskin lining which has been made up so it buttons into the jacket. This can be completely removed together with the fur collar attachment and could therefore be used in both summer and winter conditions. The jacket has no nomenclature of any description and it has almost certainly be made up as a private purchase item, perhaps to the original owner's specification. The main zip which has a double puller arrangement is made by Zipp and while in working order, the runner feed is a little tender. The sleeve zips are also by Zipp but to a different design and are in working order. In photographing the jacket, we have detected a stitch imprint which appears to indicate where a Luftwaffe breast eagle has been removed. The jacket is a good size. We have just been contacted by Mick Prodger who has helped ID our jacket: 'It's a beautiful jacket - and a rare item. But it isn't private purchase and it isn't German. It's Italian! The quality of Italian air force stuff was staggering - like Armani was in the flying jacket business! The Luftwaffe eagle may have been added post war, although it wouldn't surprise me at all if some Luftwaffe pilots wore the jacket during the war - after all they were allies until 1943 and the Brits/Americans wore each other's gear. Zipp was an international company and you will find Canadian, Australian, US and many European items (as well as German) with Zipp brand zips. However the little teardrop puller is very characteristic of Italian design. Nice too that it still has it's button in fur liner'. Thanks for that Mick and we are all wiser now!
3290 RNZAF 3 Squadron Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRNZAF 3 Squadron Flying Jacket - This example's nomenclature indicates Jacket Flyers CWU-45/P and is manufactured by Isratex Inc. It is also marked large (42"-44"). While the original owner's name has been obliterated, he was a Flt. Lieutenant serving with No. 3 Squadron RNZAF confirmed by the shoulder titles and an extremely nice original badge with the legend Kimihia Ka Patu. The jacket has a heavy Scovill zip in good working order. The outer nylon shell and knits are also in good shape just showing minor service wear. The flap pockets have velcro fastenings and the left sleeve carries a further pocket, pen holder, etc. This is an extremely comfortable and original flight jacket in a good size and not often encountered here in the UK.
3892 Tanker Jacket Combat Winter - Click for the bigger picture SoldTanker Jacket Combat Winter - While these jackets were issued in WWII to all branches of the US Army, it was favoured by the US armoured troops and acquired the nickname 'tanker jacket'. It also managed to find its way to the air force where it was favoured by flight crews, particularly on the P-38 Lightning where it was found to be less bulky than the standard Shearling jackets. This example is an extremely good replica and would appear from the label to date to 1994 and is named to Taderley Clothes. It has a Talon zip fitted in good working order. The khaki cotton shell is in excellent shape as are the knits. The interior lining is very clean. The label is marked 'size large' but we would estimate it is good for a 40"-42" chest. A perfect jacket for the collector, re-enactor or for general every day wear.
4153 USAAF A-2 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF A-2 Flying Jacket - A very scarce original WWII issued example. The horse hide leather is in excellent condition and is soft supple with a very nice patina. The waist band is original to the jacket and while it has some minor holes and repairs, it is well above average. The cuff knits are a slightly darker shade of brown and are probably early post war replacements. The original triple marked Talon zip is fitted. There is slight separation to the runner at the base of the zip but seeing it is original, we have decided to leave as it is. The interior fabric lining is in excellent shape with just minor repairs in the collar area. A period patch has also been added and while no label is present, we understand the maker could be Poughaeepsie and would date from around 1942. While the jacket has no sign of a name tag or squadron patch being fitted, the interior lining shows a part of the original owner's name and service number and we are told it was issued to Paul S. Sosovec who was born in 1912 and enlisted in the Army Airforce in Chicago in 1942. This lovely jacket is offered as a collector's item, although we estimate the chest size to be a 40"-42". We would not recommend for regular wear for fear of damaging the zip feed.
3684 RAF Irvin Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Irvin Flying Jacket - On offer is an original RAF jacket dating to 1945. We purchased it directly from the family of the original wartime owner and it has never been offered on the collectors' market before. Despite the late war date, this is a high quality large panel example as opposed to most later examples which were a bit like a patchwork quilt! The reason for this is that it was originally a heated jacket issued to bomber crews. The wiring loom and plugs were removed post war like so many but this has been extremely well done. We have had the main zip replaced due to damage with a replica Lightning example while the sleeve zips are the original Dot manufacture. The exterior leather has normal service wear and a very nice patina. The collar details are all correct as is the waist belt and of course no pockets are fitted! Inside the jacket carries an original broad arrow marked and dated label and while the size is no longer discernable, it appears to be a 40"-42" chest. It features the characteristic short fur lining of an early jacket and other than one repair patch to the inner storm flap, is really in top condition. While we hesitate to offer originals for regular wear, this one used with care, could well be strong enough for the occasional outing
4239 RAF Irvin Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Irvin Flying Jacket - Here we have the impossible dream of the classic RAF Irvin in a size 46" chest! This example has been made under exclusive licence from Irvin GB Ltd. by Aviation Leathercraft. Unfortunately, many of their customers specify their jackets with non standard slash pockets which (in our view) spoil an otherwise excellent garment. The original owner of this example fortunately specified his jacket without the pockets and it looks great. It also benefits from having been nicely broken in and has the sort of vintage patina normally only seen on WWII issue examples but these hardly ever turn up in this size. Everything is as it should be and with the current cold weather is an excellent buy for classic flyers, car enthusiasts or re-enactors. With the ever spiralling costs of WWII examples this is both practical and competitively priced being offered well below the cost of a current production jacket. We have just had it returned from a Daily Mail photo shoot where it was used for a feature on Martin Kemp and his son Roman to tie in with the recent TV programme.
2375 USAAF A-10A Oxygen Mask - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF A-10A Oxygen Mask - An excellent example manufactured by Acushmet with serial no. 3134A and in a medium size. Also stamped Property Air Force US Army. The rubber is in excellent condition and the mask if complete with the original oxygent tube. The harness is in place and has all the correct hooks and snaps and displays extremely well with the A-11 flight helmet we have also recently listed.
4226 Luftwaffe Splitterschutzbrille Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Splitterschutzbrille Flying Goggles - This pair are extremely high quality replicas, although they were sold to the previous owner as the real thing. We believe these to be manufactured in Eastern Europe and represent the third type developed by Nitsche & Gunther and feature a three piece hinged frame and a silken elastic back strap. These goggles were designed with curved lenses to deflect small splinters of shrapnel, while providing excellent optical qualities. With originals now changing hands for £400-£600, these represent excellent value either for display in a collection or for the re-enactor.
3939 Skyway Flight Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldSkyway Flight Goggles - A classic example of US made American Optical flight goggles, named on the nose bridge to the manufacturers Skyway. These would be commercial flying goggles dating to the inter war period 1920 -1940. The black painted frames are in exceptional condition as are the rubber face pads which show no sign of the normal perishing. These are stamped 6885021-2. The black painted frame indicates the goggles were manufactured by Ficher Spring Co. and were patented. The clear perspex lenses are in clear condition as is the back strap which retains good elasticity. An excellent display set of pre war commercial flying goggles which were designed to accept standard Air Corps lenses. This set was recently worn by actor Martin Kemp for a photo shoot to tie in with his recent appearance on the TV show 'Dangerous Adventures for Boys'.
4361 RAF Mk. VIII Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk. VIII Flying Goggles - Perhaps the most common of RAF WWII goggles, first issued in October 1943 and subsequently became a design classic remaining on the inventory until the 1970's. This set is in good issued condition with most of the RAF blue paint intact on the brass frames. The leather section is also sound but the interior shows normal service wear. Clear lenses are fitted which do not exhibit the fogging often seen. The original back strap has all the correct adjustments although it has lost much of its elasticity over the years. This set would make a good display example at an entry level price.
3943 RAAF Mk.IIIA Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAAF Mk.IIIA Flying Goggles - An excellent example of these classic goggles which were issued to both RAF, RAAF and RNZAF flight crews in the early part of WWII. These are near unissued condition with nearly all the black paint in place, hinge in good working order and goggle stops and ventilation trumpets just as they should be. The clear perspex lenses exhibit minor scratching but far above average and the black velvet face pads and black leather nose cover are also near perfect. The interior padding has hardened over the years. The back strap features red spring coverings (which helps identify Australian issue goggles) are in good condition with springs intact. The leather section has the correct adjustment buckle but is unmarked although could well have been manufactured by Stokes.
4230 RAF C type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF C type Flying Helmet - This is a second pattern internally wired helmet, introduced into service in 1944. It is fully wired with excellent receivers housings, loom and jack plug fitted. All snaps and buckles are in place. The leather outer shell is generally sound but exhibits some flaking to the surface and the oxygen snaps are a little tender. The helmet is stamped with the broad arrow property mark and stores ref. no. 22C/880, making it the largest size 4. Inside the leather lining is in excellent issued condition and the helmet has had several owners, the last appearing to be James. This helmet, despite its faults, stll makes a good and complete example for display purposes only and has been priced accordingly.
3801 LKp N101 'Netzkopfhaube' Flying helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLKp N101 'Netzkopfhaube' Flying helmet - A classic helmet favoured by Luftwaffe fighter pilots and this is the desirable first pattern wih provision for attaching the two point oxygen mask. The net section is in exceptional condition and the dark brown leather receiver housings exhibit just minor service wear. A long wiring loom and 4 pin plug is fitted together with early round Bakelite covered throat microphones. Inside is as you would expect and reflects the condition of the exterior. Original manufacturer's label with code bxo, indicating the helmet was made by Deutsche Telephonwerke und Kabelindustrie AG, Berlin. It is complete with ink stamp Gr59. The interior perspex receiver covers are still in place and in good condition. In summary, a desirable early example that would sit happily in any collection.
3780 LKp S101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLKp S101 Flying Helmet - First introduced in 1938, this is the Summer Luftwaffe flying helmet made from the salt and pepper material as used for the Fliegerkombi. The helmet is in very clean condition and is fitted with a wiring loom and throat microphones, although the receivers and perspex covers have been removed. While originally having provision for a 3 point oxygen mask, the top attachment loop and strap have been removed at some stage. This could well be a field modification if the helmet was only used with a 2 point attachment mask. The silk lining is in good clean condition and carries a maker's label named to Siemens and stamped GR57, so is a small size. Despite the modifications, it makes an excellent display helmet at an entry level price.
4451 RAFFC B Type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAFFC B Type Flying Helmet - A fine late example of the classic RAF flying helmet synonymous with the Battle of Britain. The leather is in exceptional condition with original finish and no scuffs or repairs. Receiver housings are fitted with original zips in working order. The Bennett buckles and the leather covering, which is often damaged or missing, are perfect. The helmet is interesting in that the original D oxygen mask snaps have been removed and replaced with appropriate fastenings for the later E* and G masks. The helmet is clearly dated 1941, so this represents a theatre made modification, as by this stage the D was more or less obsolete. The chin strap is mint and complete with the chrome end fitting which is often missing. Inside the lining and doughnuts are excellent with just minor service wear. The helmet, which is a size 2, benefits by having a large woven label which is unusual for such a late production example and is made by G. Waddington & Son Ltd. Written in ink is R.F.Oair and separately RAFFC Dorayl, although this is not 100% clear. In addition, the lining is stamped RAFFC which we believe indicates the helmet was used by Royal Air Force Ferry Command which was formed 15th July, 1941 but was changed to RAF Transport Command in April 1943. All in all, a most interesting variant on the standard B helmet and would sit happily in any specialist collection. RCAF ear foams are included but no receivers or loom.
560 Luftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - An example of the 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. It does, however, lack a wiring loom or throat microphones but the attachment point for these is in place, so with the correct spares, could be upgraded to original condition. Inside the label is in place confirming it was made by Hersteller and various other stamps including Gr57.
