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.

Pages: 320
Cover: Hard
Author: Air Ministry

1836 RAF Pocket Book 1937 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Pocket Book 1937 - Stores issue no. A.P.1081. This edition was reprinted in February 1939 and it covers an absolute wealth of information dealing with everything an RAF serviceman or officer needs to know. Includes such useful information as Arrest and Custody Procedures, Digging Latrines and Forced Landings on the Sea! Lavishing illustrated with fold out diagrams, this must have been an invaluable and informative book when issued in WWII and still makes fascinating reading nearly 70 years later! 17cm x 11cm (6.5" x 4").
2443 Battle of Britain 145 Shadow Squadron Plaque - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain 145 Shadow Squadron Plaque - Mounted on an oak shield, the crest is surmounted by a King's crown and probably dates to WWII. 145 Squadron was formed in Egypt in 1918, was disbanded in 1919, but reformed in 1939. It was initially equipped with Blenheims, but in 1940 converted to Hurricanes and Spitfires and fought with distinction in the Battle of Britain. The motto translates to "we fight by day and night". The squadron was disbanded on 19th August, 1945. Excellent original condition. 18cm (7").
2565 Air Ministry Type D Stereoscope - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Type D Stereoscope - In original canvas issue pouch embossed Type D 14B/746 and AM with King's crown. These instruments were used by WWII RAF intelligence officers to examine in detail aerial photographs. Excellent issued condition and disassembles for storage and transportation. Case size: 9cm x 6cm (6.5" x 3.5").
2570 Bristol Aeroplane Company Test Gauge - Click for the bigger picture SoldBristol Aeroplane Company Test Gauge - The brass scale indicates it was for use on the Hercules, Perseus and Centaurus engines. The instrument is stamped FB101192/2MM and has BAC and a broad arrow crudely engraved below. The Perseus engine was used on the Lysander aircraft, while the Centaurus entered service in 1942 on the Warwick, Tempest and Fury. The Hercules was fitted to the Bristol Freighter which entered service in 1945. The scale indicates 0 - 30 and appears to be some sort of pressure testing instrument, circa 1945. 45 cm (17.5").
3035 RAF Crest in Period Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Crest in Period Frame - Hand embroidered with crest and motto "Per Ardua Ad Astra" which translated reads "through struggles to the stars". The crest is surmounted by a King's crown and probably dates to WWII, perhaps worked by a mother, wife or girlfriend of a serving member of the RAF. The colours are still bright with no sign of moth damage. 27cm x 22cm (10.5" X 8.5").
3273 Luftwaffe Armbandkompass Model AK-39 - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Armbandkompass Model AK-39 - This example is the first pattern and is complete with original wrist strap. The bezel rotates and has the correct size air bubble in the oil. It is fully stamped on the reverse with manufacturer's detail and Luftwaffe FL Nos. 23235. These compasses were issued to German air crew to aid escape if forced down in enemy territory. This example has been used post war by a Royal Navy helicopter pilot! Now sold as a collector's item, but we are assured it still works as intended.
OC227 A-2 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldA-2 Flying Jacket - Manufactured by the Cooper Defense Contract Division for the USAF. Coopers obtained a contract in 1988 to supply a total of 53, 000 units and we understand this most famous WWII pattern also served with distinction during the first Gulf War. This example has been my personal jacket and was purchased new in 1992. It is in excellent condition and is only for sale as it is now a fraction small! It is sized at 42R (107 cm). No faults and a very wearable A-2, at a time when wartime examples are just too valuable to use on a regular basis.
2435 Battle of Britain Period Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain Period Flying Jacket - A superb and original 'Irvin' jacket as used by RAF aircrew in the early part of WWII. This example has the large panels synonomous with pre-war jackets before wartime shortages forced the economy of the multi panel designs, which although inferior in quality, made better use of available materials. It never appears to have had a label, so we don't know the exact date of manufacture, but the pattern and short cut pile sheepskin, make it early. The leather panels are unmarked and while the half belt shows some age wear, this is a true collector's jacket and is museum quality or better! Other than one zip puller tag missing and the other a later replacement, the jacket is hard to better. We consider this item too valuable to wear as it would be a disaster to damage the pristine leather, so it is for sale as a display example for the serious collector. This jacket is a decent size c. 41" chest (105 cm)
1409 RAF Pilot's Clipboard - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Pilot's Clipboard - Designed to be strapped to the upper leg and charts or other notes could be clamped to it using the butterfly nuts and securing bar at the top. Made of pine with original leather straps, it is stamped on back with stores reference number 6F/171. Comes complete with an RAF chart of South West Scotland, dated 1942. it measures 28 cm x 15 cm (10" x 6")
