3818 1932 Pattern Mae West Life Jacket - Click for the bigger picture Sold1932 Pattern Mae West Life Jacket - This example is made by the Dominion Rubber Company in Canada and was issued to both RAF and RCAF air crew in WWII. Finished in yellow rubberised canvas, it is fitted with the original label confirming both the RAF and RCAF issue numbers, as well as the size which is large. It has various stencilled instructions to the front and on the reverse "Armament". Generally in excellent condition, with a small stitch repair near the inflation tube loop, but this is more or less hidden behind the flap cover. The jacket is on offer without kapoks or bladder, although we have an excellent pair of reproduction kapoks at additional cost if required. This jacket represents excellent value, particularly when compared with current retail prices on early RAF green examples.
PC60 RAF H type Oxygen Mask - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF H type Oxygen Mask - Introduced into RAF service in 1944, it remained an issue item up until the 1980's. This example features the later small microphone and was manufactured in January, 1975. The rubber is generally sound with minor surface cracking around the exhaust outlet and some service wear to the inner leather face pad. It is complete with appropriate harness snaps and clips to fit the RAF or FAA C type flying helmet.
PC58 Fleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - This is the second pattern introduced into service in 1944. It is fully wired with excellent loom, fitted receivers, as well as Gosport Tube housings which were a unique feature of this helmet and explains the need for zipped receiver cups. All snaps and straps in place and working. The leather is generally sound, but has signs of repair to brow and front seams. This does not detract from the helmet and it displays very well. No apparent size marked, but it is small and probably a one or two.
PC55 Luftwaffe Emergency Seenotflagge - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Emergency Seenotflagge - This example was recovered from a crash site and is in semi relic condition with some corrosion. The extending tubes are locked and the leather handle absent, but this increasingly rare item would still display well in the pocket of your channel trousers. An invaluable aid to downed Luftwaffe airmen when the appropriate flag is attached for attracting the attention of possible rescuers. It measures 32cm (12.5")
2682 Battle of Britain period Luftwaffe Mess Hall Teaspoons - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain period Luftwaffe Mess Hall Teaspoons - We now have just 3 remaining from the original set. All featuring the early droop tail Luftwaffe national emblem on the handles. The reverse of the spoons is clearly marked H.M.Z.39 and the Luftwaffe property mark code FL.U.V. H.M.Z. indicates the manufacturing code for Arbeitsgemeinschaft Holz Des Klingensthaler Bezirkes Brunndoebra. Manufactured in 1939, we sadly have no provenance with them, but they would have served throughout the war and no doubt have a story to tell! Made from aluminium, they measure 15cm (5.75").
3776 Aircraft Generator Propeller - Click for the bigger picture SoldAircraft Generator Propeller - This example unusually comes with its original pine box (lacking lid). The propeller is larger than those we normally see with a diameter of 61cm (24"). It carries original stencilling to one blade, reading 247 and embossed on the hub with the letter E. It is reputed to be of the type used on airships and the flat pitch of the blades would seem to support this. Manufactured in hardwood, it has a lovely patina and in excellent conditon with just a tiny chip to one blade end.
PC53 Japanese Airman's Rescue Signal Flag - Click for the bigger picture SoldJapanese Airman's Rescue Signal Flag - Designed to be folded and carried by Japanese airman in WWII, to aid rescue if forced to ditch over water. The flag is made from a very light material, possibly silk and stitched within the edge is a kapok type floatation device to enable the flag to be spread flat on the water. The rising sun section is oversized compared to a regular Japanese flag, in order to attract maximum attention. Minor service wear and staining, but a most unusual and rare item. 102cm x 79cm (40" x 31")
PC51 RFC/RAF 1st Pattern Sidcot Suit - Click for the bigger picture SoldRFC/RAF 1st Pattern Sidcot Suit - This all in one flying suit was introduced into RAF service towards the end of WWI and served in modified forms throughout the inter-war years and WWII. This scarce example is in the totally original condition collectors dream of, but rarely find. The quilted fireproof fabric is in excellent condition with only minor stains and service wear. The leg pockets are correctly fur lined and all button closures are intact. Inside the synthetic fur lining is also excellent. No label, but the inner flap is stamped 26 WD P and there is a broad arrow military property mark. This suit is a good display size and deserves to be in a museum - which is the only place we have seen one before!
PC50 Luftwaffe Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Flying Boots - In good original condition and looking at the design and specification, appear to date from mid to late WWII. Black leather uppers with black leather/beige nubuck legs. Fitted with original Wilop bump pattern soles. Both zips are functioning; the right boot carries a metal example by Rapid, while the left has a economy plastic Ri-Ri which looks to be a wartime replacement. All straps are complete, although there are minor variations between the buckle arrangements, so may have been mis-matched at some stage, but appear to have been worn as a pair. These were purchased direct from Germany in nice original condition and showing normal service wear. No labels are fitted, but we estimate to be about a UK 9, USA 9 1/2, Continental 43.
3078 Luftwaffe Parachute Quick Release Buckle - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Parachute Quick Release Buckle - A fine example of the war time pattern as used on WWII seat and chest parachutes. It is clearly stamped to the front as shown in the pictures and the back is stamped SA Scholss and manufactured by DR.Gettwart Berlin. Also stamped is FL 30232. What makes this example unusual is the parachute webbing attachment clips are still present and each is stamped FL.30232-1. Unlike many we see, this is not in relic condition and is in full working order. It would make a fine addition to a Luftwaffe collection or to assist in rebuilding a complete parachute assembly.
3573 Luftwaffe Service Wrist Watch - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Service Wrist Watch - This example is marked BWC to the dial and features roman numerals and a small subsidiary second hand dial. The screw back is marked ROSTFREI STAHIRODEN WASSERDICHT and numbered D11320. The chrome finish to the case shows some wear, but is in generally good condition and is running well. The watch glass and winder may be replacements. We have fitted a correct specification reproduction leather strap. This watch would probably have been issued to and used by ground personnel.
3572 Luftwaffe Officer's Belt - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Officer's Belt - A fine original example in tan leather, complete with double pronged pebbled finish buckle. Minor staining to the leather and like many examples we see, the retaining loop for the belt end is absent, but this does not detract and it is perfect for a mannequin display or for re-enactment. It does not have any manufacturer's marks or date stamp and is a good size measuring 46" (117cm)
3444 Luftwaffe fur lined Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe fur lined Flying Boots - This pair came in with the Luftwaffe suit we have recently listed and are post war examples in good original condition. They feature black grained leather uppers, cleated rubber soles with zip and strap fastenings. We cannot decipher the actual size, but they would appear to align to a UK size 9 (Continental 43). A durable and useable pair of boots at a modest price.
3442 Luftwaffe Leather Flight Suit - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Leather Flight Suit - Manufactured in soft grey leather with a rayon lining. It has a full length zip fastening to the front with further Ri-Ri zips to wrist, ankles and pockets. All are functioning and one ankle zip has been replaced. The interior label is marked Beckumer Lederwerk and while is it not dated, we believe this to be a post war suit. The size label indicates 50 and the suit is a good size and would fit someone around 72" tall (103cm). It has some service wear and minor repairs, but is generally sound and is a warm, comfortable and useable example.
3496 Luftwaffe Winter Flying Jacket for flight over land - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Winter Flying Jacket for flight over land - Manufactured in blue/grey cloth with fur lining and a dark brown collar. This jacket would appear to be late war production with button closure, rather than the snaps which we would normally expect to see on this pattern. The sleeve zips are brass and manufactured by Zipp, while the main zip is a late war economy plastic zip by Ri-Ri. This jacket has seen heavy useage and as well as service grime, the right arm has had extensive repairs, but these do not detract and makes an extremely good display example. The interior fur lining is generally sound, while there is some moulting to the fur collar. It is a good size being about a 42" chest (107cm). Whilst we have seen better examples, original Luftwaffe WWII flight jackets are getting hard to find and this is a good honest example.
PC49 RAF C Type Flying Helmet 2nd Pattern - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF C Type Flying Helmet 2nd Pattern - Marked with stores ref. 22C/880 and with the ministry broad arrow property mark. This indicates it is a size 4 - the largest size offered. While this example has been issued, it is in prestine condition inside and out. Currently, it does not have receivers or wiring loom fitted, but with suitable plumbing, this helmet would be hard to improve upon. The chin strap has retained its elasticity and all the snaps and buckles are in perfect order. The inside of the helmet is equally clean. A rare and desirable example.
PC48 LKpN101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLKpN101 Flying Helmet - Superb Luftwaffe fighter pilot's Netzcopfhaube flying helmet. This has been with the same private collector for the last 34 years and whilst we do not have any history, it is believed the owner served in North Africa. The helmet is in totally original condition and features the short communication cord favoured by fighter pilots. This has a 4 pin connector and the helmet is fitted with Mi4b throat microphones. Other than minor wear to the receiver cups, this helmet is about as good as they come. It has provision for a 2 point oxygen mask. The 10-6701 oxygen mask illustrated has already been sold separately so this sale is for the LkpN 101 helmet alone.
2564 Royal Naval Air Service Trench Art - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Naval Air Service Trench Art - Carved in the form of a sabre with RNAS initials to the grip and a metal albatross applied to the blade. Manufactured from polished hardwood, probably reclaimed from a damaged propeller or wing strut. The Royal Naval Air Service was formed in 1912, but was merged with the Royal Flying Corp in 1918 to form the RAF. A unique souvenir from the early days of military aviation. 31cm (12").

RAF Pocket Book 1937 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Pocket Book 1937

Air Ministry designation A.P.1081 and while dated 1937 on the cover, this edition was published in 1939. It covers an absolute wealth of information, including Arrest and Custody Procedures, Digging Latrines and Forced Landings on the Sea! It also includes a wealth of fold out diagrams and pictures and it must have been an invaluable reference to RAF personnel in WWII, but also makes very interesting reading nearly 70 years later. Minor service wear to the cover, but overall in very good condition.
