Reference Stock Item   Description
53 RAF 1940 dated Kit Bag - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 1940 dated Kit Bag - Originally issued to Higbey whose service no. was 1198025. Sadly we have no history on his service career but he has clearly written his name on the side of the bag and on the top flap cover. The bag carries a good clear AM stamp, King's Crown and the emotive 1940 manufacturing date. We checked to see if, by chance, Higbey was one of the "Few" but sadly this is not the case. Minor service wear but overall in exceptional condition and would be perfect for a period aviation display or for re-enactment purposes. Complete with closure rope and the brass eyelets are in perfect condition.
25 USAAF B-3 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF B-3 Flying Jacket - An original example with woven label confirming a 1943 contract date and size 40" regular. While this jacket does not have a maker's name on the label, the front pocket shows evidence of a label having been fitted which was a unique feature of Rough Wear produced jackets. This example has clearly had a hard working life and the back panel has numerous repair patches fitted but from the front the jacket displays very well with a good vintage patina. The zip has been professionally replaced with a correct specification Talon. Some repairs to collar but correct straps and buckles fitted. Some thinning to fur lining.
19 USAAF B-3 Flying Jacket by H L B Corp - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF B-3 Flying Jacket by H L B Corp - An orginal example with a 1942 contract date and woven label indicating size 36" regular. The jacket has a nice patina and is in generally good issued condition but some old repairs mainly to left arm. Correct waist and collar straps fitted and fur lining in good condition. We have had the zip professionally repaired with the correct specification Talon example. Hanging strap is absent.
2952 Trench Art Eagle and Letter Opener - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Eagle and Letter Opener - Manufactured from Plexiglas, almost certainly recovered from crashed aircraft. The eagle is mounted on a hardwood base with detailed carving. This is accompanied by a letter opener made from the same material and embossed on the handle, Tunis 1943. These items were purchased together and were probably fashioned by the same hand. Eagle wing span 6" (15cm), letter opener 8" (20cm)
2800 Trench Art Picture Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Picture Frame - Manufactured from an original mahogany propeller tip with brass leading edge and with a cut out frame to the centre, complete with a black and white photograph of an aviator. He appears to be wearing Luxor goggles, so would seem to date from the 1930's, although this pattern was popular up until the Battle of Britain. The perspex picture cover is somewhat opaque, but this gives the item a period feel. It would easily be replaced in required. Mounted on a wooden base, this is a very aesthetically pleasing item and the picture would easily be changed to feature the aviator in your life! Measures 8" (20cm) high including base.
3659 RAF Crest and Wings - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Crest and Wings - Cast in brass with the crest surmounted by a King's Crown. This item has the look of a bonnet or radiator mount, but the base has not been threaded for attachment and we presume therefore it was designed as a display or presentation item. Nice original condition, but without maker's marks. Wing span 9.5" (24cm)
1321 Newman Industries Ltd. Yate Presentation Ashtray - Click for the bigger picture SoldNewman Industries Ltd. Yate Presentation Ashtray - Mounted above is a fine brass model of a Hurricane fighter on a painted metal stand. Newmans of Yate, nr. Bristol were contracted by the Air Ministry in WWII to fabicate aircraft parts and we assume this included components for the Hurricane. The factory was clearly considered a threat by the German High Command and was bombed by the Luftwaffe in 1941. The ashtray base, which could be made from Bakelite, has a minor chip to the lower edge, but this does obviously detract and is a fine example which was no doubt presented by Newmans to their corporate customers at the time. Diameter 7" (17cm)
3362 RAF Half Pint Tankard - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Half Pint Tankard - A fine example engraved with an RAF crest to the front, surmounted by a King's Crown and whilst not dated, almost certainly of the WWII period. The base is stamped 25 Half Pint 10149 W. It is not hallmarked, so we imagine it is made from nickel silver. 3.75" (9cm)
2813 RAF Benevolent Fund Bell - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Benevolent Fund Bell - Cast from alloy salvaged from a shot down Luftwaffe aircraft between 1939-1945 and sold in the early post-war period to raise funds for RAF charities. Features in relief Churchill, Stalin and Roseveldt and with Churchill's victory V to the handle. In excellent original condition complete with clapper. Measures 6" (14cm)
2332 The Battle of Britain Tankard by Gordon Davies - Click for the bigger picture SoldThe Battle of Britain Tankard by Gordon Davies - Issued by the RAFA in 1990 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. It features fine transfer prints of Spitfires, although sadly the Hurricane that played such a crucial role has been omitted! It also features a pilot scrambling as well as the RAF crest. Measures 5" high (12cm), 1 pint capacity.
3530 Model Spitfire and Hurricane - Click for the bigger picture SoldModel Spitfire and Hurricane - A fine example of trench art with each fighter fashioned out of aircraft alloy and mounted on a turned pine base. A most unusual pair with the Spitfire dominating and the smaller Hurricane sweeping below its port wing. Spitfire wing span 6" (15cm).
PC66 Nitsche & Gunther Splitterschutzbrille flying goggles case - Click for the bigger picture SoldNitsche & Gunther Splitterschutzbrille flying goggles case - Sadly we do not have the splinter goggles it once contained, but this would make an excellent addition if you own a set without the case. It would also make an interesting display item in its own right. Retaining around 70% of the original olive drab paint, the front is embossed Behatter Fur Flieger-Splitterschutzbrillen Mit Ultrasin-Glasern A Nr.30550. This case would be for the 2nd pattern goggles with the hinged nose piece. 7" (18cm)
3976 US Army Air Corp no. 1A Flying Helmet by Western Electric - Click for the bigger picture SoldUS Army Air Corp no. 1A Flying Helmet by Western Electric - A very scarce and early example, this represents the very first US helmet to incorporate radio telephone equipment and saw limited use in the final years of WWII. The earliest examples laced up the back and over the crown of the head, while this is a slightly later version with lacing in the neck area, but the crown is fitted with an adjustment strap. The tan leather receiver covers are marked H8 and both the wiring snaps are present and working, although the helmet is unwired and receivers are not fitted. Due to problems with the development of a suitable oxygen mask to accompany the 1A helmet, its issue and use was restriced. The tan leather is in exceptional condition, as is the blanket lined interior, which is fitted with a woven label to Western Electric. The helmet is marked medium, but appears to fit somewhat larger.
4004 Mk 1A (R) Bone Dome Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldMk 1A (R) Bone Dome Flying Helmet - Introduced into RAF service, this was the first "hard hat" flying helmet issued to RAF air crew and replaced the long serving 'C' type of the WWII era. Finished in silver paint, it is in exceptional original condition. The interior is equally clean and is stamped stores ref. no. 22C/1253073, with a manufacturer's date of 1972; tt is named to the original owner Thomas. A tinted visor is fitted and is complete with velveteen cover. This helmet comes complete with a cloth bag stamped stores ref. 22C/2327. A fine example of this classic RAF helmet which will always be associated with V Bomber air crews.
4011 RAF 'C' type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 'C' type Flying Helmet - 2nd pattern with an internal wiring loom introduced into RAF service in 1944. In excellent original condition and named on the elastic chin strap to Fl. Lt. Saunders and again on the inside of the lining, which shows some service staining. It is stamped size 2, 6 7/8 - 7. The loom is in near perfect condition with the correct wartime bell shaped jack plug. Receivers are marked 10A/13466. Overall an excellent example of this classic RAF helmet.
3970 RAF Type 27 Camera Mouting Bracket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Type 27 Camera Mouting Bracket - This is a wonderful example of creative engineering and we like it a lot! It is designed to hold an appropriate camera and by manipulating the various milled wheels, the angle of aim can be very finely adjusted. An engraved brass plaque is riveted to the side of the instrument which is marked with the King's Crown and AM (Air Ministry) and a stores code 14A/1042 and serial no. B37982. The whole device would have been locked onto an appropriate mount and while we have never had one of these before, if you happen to have a suitable RAF camera, this would be the ideal display aid as well as being a wonderful item in its own right.
3399 RAF Canvas Training Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Canvas Training Helmet - Manufactured in tan twill cloth with blanket lining. The rear of the helmet is fitted with elastic to ensure a close fitting, helped by an adjustable head band. No provision for Gosport tubes or receivers, the helmet features roll back ear covers similar to those used on RFC helmets. This example is in very good issued condition inside and out. The lining is stamped with Q, W.D. and a broad arrow, together with the number 221. Whilst no size is marked, it appears to correspond to an RAF size 3. An extremely scarce and often overlooked flying helmet which should form an integral part of any RAF collection.
4002 Luftwaffe Navigator's Instruments in Issue Case - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Navigator's Instruments in Issue Case - Marked on canvas K.W.27 and manufacturer's code bvu indicating the set was made by Franz Kuhlmann of Wilhelmshaven. The case has a fitted interior containing 4 perspex instruments marked with manufacturer's code, Waffen eagle and swastika and dated 1941. One is named Nadel-Zahlen and features an inset dial marked Fliegeruhr (pilot's watch); this instrument has a small crack, but still displays well. The rectangular instrument is marked Zielgevierttafel, indicating a target designation grid and was no doubt used to help calculate the bomb run. The set is completed with 2 small square instruments marked with kilometre distances on the edges. A rare cased set. Case measurements 9" x 7.25" (23cm x 19cm)
3847 WWII Tissue Paper Escape Map Sheet C - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Tissue Paper Escape Map Sheet C - A single sided example printed in colour covering Northern France, Belgium and Holland. Interestingly, only a fraction of England is shown - a wartime precaution in case the map should be captured and used by the enemy for his own purposes! An identical example is featured on page 102 of Mick Prodger's excellent Luftwaffe v. RAF Flight Equipment book. 21" x 16" (53cm x 41cm)
3846 WWII Tissue Paper Escape Map Sheet 9J3 - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Tissue Paper Escape Map Sheet 9J3 - This is a single sided example covering Northern Italy, Corsica and the Adriatic. Marked ADI (Maps) Air Ministry no. 7331. Tissue maps, while sometimes issued to operational air crew, were also smuggled into POW camps from non existent relatives to aid possible escape plans. Due to their delicate nature, few have survived and even less in this condition! 16" x 12" (41cm x 30cm)
