PC102 MGB Sports Car with RAF connection! - Click for the bigger picture SoldMGB Sports Car with RAF connection! - On offer is the highly desirable 'chrome bumper' version which was first registered 26 March 1974 and has been with the current owner since July 1986. In the last ten years the car has been professionally restored including many new body panels and new interior including leather trim. Due to work commitments the owner has had little opportunity to enjoy her and she has been stored in a dry lock-up garage since 1989, during which time she has covered approximately 200 miles! She has, however, been maintained in roadworthy condition throughout and had her new Ministry of Transport (MOT) issued on 19 June 2009. She is fitted with overdrive, wire wheels and a soft top although a hard top could be available by separate negotiation if required. The car is owned by our neighbour's son and any negotiations would be direct with the owners. She is garaged here in central Somerset (South West England). She is one of the last of the true British sports cars with the additional benefit of having the registration RAF 669M which will appeal to all you RAF collectors!
4598 Fleet Air Arm 'C' Type Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFleet Air Arm 'C' Type Helmet - A scarce example in size 4 (the largest offered). The leather is in excellent original condition, as is the interior which just shows normal service wear. All snaps and buckles in place and working. The receiver cup foams are original to the helmet and while somewhat brittle, they help to display the helmet in as used service condition. This helmet is fitted with gosport tubes and looks as though it has never had a wiring loom fitted, so could well have been used in a training role.
4599 Luftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - A clean example of the standard winter flying helmet used by the German Air Force in WWII. The leather is in excellent condition as is the lambswool fur lining but the helmet is lacking receivers and wiring loom. The interior carries a manufacturer's label confirming made by Siemens and ink stamped GR58. Good entry level helmet in a decent size.
4600 Section of Propeller Tip - Click for the bigger picture SoldSection of Propeller Tip - Finished in RAF colours and while we do not know what aircraft it came from, judging by its size it is likely to be a single engine trainer or fighter. Made from laminated timber with original covering and polished brass leading edge. Measures 12" (31cm)
4581 DH60 Propeller Blade and Hub - Click for the bigger picture SoldDH60 Propeller Blade and Hub - The DH60 is the code for the De Havilland. The DH60 is otherwise known as the Gipsy Moth. The hub is stamped 80 hp and Cirrus and dated March 1926. The Cirrus engine was soon replaced after early production indicating this propeller is from an early example of the aircraft. One blade has been removed near the hub while the other, which is covered in the original green painted canvas, carries a signature which looks to be J. Bell, who we speculate could have been the pilot reponsible for the loss of the missing blade. A very decorative example from the early days of aviation, measures 45" (114cm)
4602 RAF Mk. VIII Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk. VIII Flying Goggles - Fitted with dark tinted lenses, broad arrow marked on the nose cover and stores ref. 22C/930 7699. The set comes complete with the original issue box marked with the owner's name Martindale. There is a spare set of clear lenses enclosed together with the demisting tin and cloth dated 1941. Box and spares not shown in the accompanying photograph.
4593 Luftwaffe Flight Mechanic Overalls - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Flight Mechanic Overalls - A fine replica example which we understand to be a film prop surplus item, although we have no information on the movie it may have starred in. In excellent used condition with nice age patina. While belt loops are attached, the belt itself is absent. No size labelling but would certainly fit someone of 6' + (183cm). Ideal for the re-enactor or for a mannequin display.
4592 RAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - This item came from the same source as article 4591 and we assume was issued to the same officer, although this example is dated 1975. It comes complete with coir rope and ingfield clips and measures 31" x 22" (79cm x 56cm). In excellent flown condition.
4591 RAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - Accompanied by a sailing pennant marked RCYC Team RAF NSC Race 1949. We do not have any direct provenance with these items but have speculated the squadron leader was also a sailor and a member of the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club. We have yet to positively ID NSC, although could possibly be Northampton Sailing Club. The squadron leader pennant measures 31" x 22" (79cm x 56cm) and is in good flown condition. The sailing pennant has a couple of moth nips while the hand embroidery is very crisp. Seeing both came in from the same source, we assume they date from the 1940's.
4586 RAF Issue Very Pistol - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Issue Very Pistol - Carried in WWII multi-placed dinghy packs, although often carried by fighter pilots tucked into their flying boots. The barrel is numbered 044185 and other than minor damage to the base of the grip, a very crisp display example and getting increasingly hard to find. The pistol has been deactivated so can be owned in the UK without a fire arms certificate and will make an excellent addition to an RAF collection.
4584 RAF Base Calshot Inter-Flight Shield - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Base Calshot Inter-Flight Shield - Presented by the officers to the winners of the annual tug of war competition and is dated 1925 and was awarded every year from then until 1937 when the competition appears to have ceased, possibly due to the war clouds over Europe. It resumed in 1946 and was last awarded in 1950. The central engraved shield is surrounded by 17 smaller engraved and dated shields and we can confirm in 1934 was won by the HQ, in 1932 201 Flying Boat Sqdn, 1930 Workshops and 1948 201 Sqdn. RAF Calshot was a sea based aerodrome in the Solent, established by the RFC in 1913 as a RNAS station testing sea planes. It was taken over by the RAF in 1922 and was the home of the high speed flight to train pilots for the Schneider Trophy races. From 1929 to 1931 "Aircraftsman Shaw" formally known as Col. T. E. Lawrence or "Lawrence of Arabia", was posted to Calshot to help with race preparations and also to work on the development of the 200 class sea plane tender. In 1921 201 Sqdn were based at Calshot followed by 240 in 1937. In WWII the base was used mainly for repair and maintenance but was involved in the evacuation from Dunkirk and from 1942 was the home to Air Sea Rescue craft. Post war Calshot-based Sunderlands flew in the Berlin air lift flying over 1000 sorties. Calshot finally closed in 1961 and our plaque is a unique souvenir and is steeped in the history from the very early days of the RFC, RNAS and RAF. 17" (43cm)
4583 RAF Dinghy Sea Drogue - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Dinghy Sea Drogue - Stores ref. no. 41AA/4, designed to slow the drift of the dinghy by acting as a sea anchor when trailed behind the boat. In virtually mint, unissued condition and complete with coir ropes. Stamped to exterior with letter 'R'. This example is likely to be post war issue but near identical in specification to WWII type.
355 Planisphere of Air Navigations Stars - Click for the bigger picture SoldPlanisphere of Air Navigations Stars - This ingenious device is attributed to Flt. Lt. Francis Chichester RAFVR who later gained internation fame sailing around the world and subsequently receiving a Knighthood. He was clearly qualified in his subject having won the Johnston Memorial Trophy for Air Navigation in 1931. The instrument was designed to help air cadets (and others)in learning to identify the stars required for navigation. The book contains two rotating planispheres showing the various constellations in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. It is named to AC.I Drew. J. E. and numbered 12989429. It appears to be in good working order and while we do not know the date of publication, clearly after 1931 and the retail price was a hefty 2 shillings and 6 pence!
3746 RAF Irvin Flying Trousers with 149 Squadron provenance - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Irvin Flying Trousers with 149 Squadron provenance - In RAF parlance, thermally insulated trousers size 4 Irvin with stores ref. 22C/328. These are an excellent original example with an Air Ministry marked label confirming the original owner was called Nunn, service no. 1378662. Sgt Nunn flew with 149 squadron and was lost on a raid on Berlin on 1/2 March 1943. His aircraft Sterling 111 OJ-W was coned by searchlights and then attacked by fighters and Nunn was injured. Hit again by flak crossing the French coast crew members opened his chute before exiting the aircraft but he did not survive and is buried in the Canadian War Cemetery at Dieppe with his skipper F/L Richman and Sgt Croft. The leather is in excellent original condition with both zips functioning well and the trousers come complete with fitted braces. The fur lining is in equally good condition and other than minor damage to the left knee pocket, they are hard to fault.
4501 Airforce 3/4 Length Flying Coat - Click for the bigger picture SoldAirforce 3/4 Length Flying Coat - A fine example in black leather with a fur collar and blanket lined. The style is reminiscent of flying coats used by early aviators in WWI, although we believe this example to be later. It is fitted with pebble finished brass buttons which are marked on the reverse C.C.Sporrong Stockholm and as this company made buttons and badges for the Swedish Armed Forces, we have deduced that this is where the coat originated from. Clearly if any visitors can give us a more definite identification, we will happily add this to the description. The only label we can find is sewn to the interior lining and the only readable information is a large number 1. The coat incorporates two flat pockets and a half belt to the rear and would be ideal for re-enactment, period flying or a superb windproof coat for open driving. It is in beautiful original condition with no faults and we would estimate it would fit up to a 44" chest (112cm).
170 RAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket - A very original example with the collar hood fully intact and crisp yellow paint to increase visibility for rescue purposes. The jacket is fitted with the original Lightning zips in good working order with the sleeve zips having King's Crown and AM marks. The leather is in generally good condition but with some very neat patch repairs to the right arm. The interior fur retains a strong golden colour, although it has had some attention from the moth as have the cuffs and waistband area. The leather hanging strap is in place and while no label is fitted, the jacket is a small size but would make an excellent display example of this increasingly hard to find variant on the RAF Irvin.
112 USAAF A-9 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF A-9 Flying Helmet - A good original example in olive drab canvas but does not ever appear to have had receivers fitted. The helmet incorporates various clips and snaps for goggle and oxygen mask attachment and the leather chin strap is fitted with a sheepskin cover. Inside is a manufacturing label confirming the helmet is a type A-9, together with a 1942 contract date. It also features a further webbing label stamped AF-13 and another size label marked Large, although we would rate the helmet not bigger than medium. A nice original WWII helmet at an entry level price.
83 USAAF B3/A3 Flying Suit - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF B3/A3 Flying Suit - An interesting modified set with the jacket having an additional left zip pocket. Aluminium eyelets have been added to the collar and waist straps. The label has been cut in half, probably done when the jacket came out of service. The original zip has been replaced by a period Lightning example. The jacket and B3 trousers both have a leather tab with painted name R.E.Benedict, who we assume was the original wartime owner and could not doubt be researched. The A-3 flight trousers are nicely labelled to Perry Sportswear Inc. Newburgh, New York. They are fitted with original braces and the leather is in good condition with a period reinforcement patch fitted in the seat area. The main zips are in poor condition and have been sewn closed to enable the suit to be displayed realistically in a collection. We estimate the jacket to be around a 38" chest (97cm), whilst the trousers are marked 40R.
1289 RCAF Ensign - Click for the bigger picture SoldRCAF Ensign - A similar example to the RAF version we have just listed but this one features the Canadian Maple Leaf within the roundel. This is also in a good flown condition with a few minor moth nips and the odd small stain. It comes complete with a coir rope and carries a stamp which appears to read 1.48 which could be the manufacturing date. Certainly being manufactured from laid on panels, it is certainly not a modern screen printed example. Measures 53" x 24" (135cm x 65cm), so an excellent size for display.
4439 RAF Ensign - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Ensign - An original version made from various panels rather than the screen printed modern examples. The flag is in flown condition with some old repairs and minor moth damage as well as a little staining but it remains in excellent display condition. It comes complete with coir rope and brass Ingfield clips to attach to the station flag pole. It measures 68" x 35 " (180cm x 90cm), so an excellent display size for a collection and becoming increasingly hard to find.
