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")
2950 Mae West Cotton Skull Cap - Click for the bigger picture SoldMae West Cotton Skull Cap - Carried in the pocket of the RAF Mae West lifejacket and it improved chances of being rescued if downed over water. This is a rare variant as it carries an extended back flap to offer improved sun protection, so we assume would have been issued to aircrew serving in tropical or desert climates.
3272 RAF H Type Oxygen Mask - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF H Type Oxygen Mask - Introduced into RAF service late in WWII and continued in use until the 1980's. This example appears to be dated 1/1952 and carries the larger wartime specification microhone. It is complete with harness and straps and makes a perfect partner to a C type helmet. Wartime manufactured H masks are very rare, so this example is the next best thing at a fraction of the price!
3271 RAF C Type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF C Type Flying Helmet - This example is the second pattern marked with stores reference number 22C/880, which makes it the desirable size 4 - the largest size. It is fully wired with Air Ministry marked receivers, loom and jack plug. This helmet was issued to Flying Officer P.E. Gray and is in superb condition inside and out. It would be hard to find a better example of this classic flying helmet which entered service with the RAF in 1944.
3259 RAF Mk VIII Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk VIII Flying Goggles - A good original example with most of the blue paint remaining on the brass frame. Excellent leather face pad and clear lenses fitted. Backstrap retains elasticity. The Mk VIII was the final wartime pattern issued first in October 1943 and was such a good design, it remained on the inventory up until the introduction of the Mk I 'Bone Dome' helmet.
2107 German WWII Leuchpistole - Click for the bigger picture SoldGerman WWII Leuchpistole - Single barrel example manufactured by Erma Erfurt and clearly dated 1940. These flare pistols were issued to Luftwaffe and Kreigsmarine personnel. This example is in good issued condition and has been de-activated with the correct certification, so can be legally owned in the UK without a firearms' certificate. Waffen stamped to barrel.
1990 RAF S.Y.C Ashtray - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF S.Y.C Ashtray - Made of brass with an enamel burgee to front featuring an RAF roundel against an orange background, engraved below RAF S.Y.C. It measures 8 cm (3")
2466 RAF 'Bone Dome' Helmet Testing Kit - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 'Bone Dome' Helmet Testing Kit - A weight set stores reference 4C/3368. All items in fitted hardwood box. This test kit was designed to test the visor brakes on the RAF Mk 2A helmet. A most unusual set for the RAF helmet collector. 13.5 cm x 13.5 cm (5.5" x 5.5")
1250 RAF WWII Dinghy Survival Balloon M-278-A - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF WWII Dinghy Survival Balloon M-278-A - In original sealed issue tin. This balloon was designed to loft the aerial wire of the SCR-578 radio transmitter (Gibson Girl) and had the advantage over the aerial kite as it could be operated in still weather conditions. The outside of the tin carries full operating instructions and illustrations as to how it should be inflated via a hydrogen generator. We can't guarantee the condition of the balloon, although the tin is sealed and has never been used. An invaluable piece of kit for airmen downed over water.
2699 RAF Air Crew Emergency Compass - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Air Crew Emergency Compass - Stamped with a broad arrow, stores reference number 6B/2593 and serial number 15045B/59.

These compasses date from the post war period. Sold as a collector's item.
