Reference Stock Item   Description
2762 Surrey Flying Services Scales - Click for the bigger picture SoldSurrey Flying Services Scales - A super item! Manufactured in pressed metal with a dial recording weghts up to 5 lbs. An alluminium tray is used for weighing purposes and the scale is marked "British Make Surrey Flying Services Ltd." We have no idea on the date of manufacture, but these scales have the classic look of the 1930's. We can only speculate on their original use - perhaps to weigh the passengers' personal pocessions before boarding their Dragon Rapide flight! Appear to be in good working order, but we cannot guarantee their accuracy.
2439 614 Bomb Squadron Mounted Plaque - Click for the bigger picture Sold614 Bomb Squadron Mounted Plaque - Manufactured in cast brass, featuring a devil's head, horse shoe and falling bomb and with an enamel 8th Airforce plaque above. It is mounted on a pine backboard. Below is a nicely engraved plaque named to 614th Bomb Sqn. 401 St Bomb GP (H). The 8th Airforce B-17's were based at Deenethorpe, England from November '43 to April '45. The reverse of the board carries information on the 401 Bomb Group and the 614 Bomb Squadron. We have no idea of age, but would imagine this has been made up post war. Board measurements are 14" x 11" (36cm x 28cm).
3117 RAF 1941 Pattern Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 1941 Pattern Flying Boots - An extremely tidy pair and completely original in every respect. The suede is in immaculate condition and the rubber galosh is well above average as they are prone to cracking and peeling on these boots. The leather ankle straps are in position and original Lightning zips are functioning. The "Itside" soles are original to the boots and show minor service wear. The boots are named to Norton and are marked on the leather tongues 22C-752, which indicates that they are a size 9. The interior fur reflects the quality of the rest of the boots.
2212 WWII 'B' Type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII 'B' Type Flying Helmet - An original 'B' type helmet of an unusual specification. A near identical example is shown on page 230 of Mick Prodger's book of vintage Flying Helmets and is listed as South African Airforce. It is constructed of pigskin with receiver cups fitted and zips in working order. On the downside, the rear adjustment strap has been removed and the leather shell is showing heavy wear. The interior has doughnuts fitted and is clean. Snaps for a 'D' type oxygen mask are fitted. The helmet is not wired, but we have added receivers foams for display purposes. Not the best example, but a rare helmet to add to your 'B' type collection.
OC224 Aircraft Blind Flying Panel Type 1 - Click for the bigger picture SoldAircraft Blind Flying Panel Type 1 - This replica has been sold but we have just purchased a 1A version which is similar but is constructed with a 16" radius at the top to facilitate installation when fitted to the contours of a fighter cockpit. It is made up in alloy to the original specification and has been laser cut and is pre-drilled to take the appropriate instruments. It has been copied from an original Air Ministry BFP marked 6A/760 and is of the type used on Spitfires and other aircraft of WWII. Would provide an ideal start point to create a replica BFP or as a component for a complete instrument panel. Please contact us for photographs of the actual panel available.
2704 Luftwaffe Single Zip Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Single Zip Flying Boots - These are becoming increasing hard to find and this pair have clearly seen significant service use. The leg sections have been heavily repaired. In addition, the boots are fitted with period Lightning zips. The soles appear original, while the heel top pieces have been replaced. The leather shoe section is in excellent condition and these would make a perfect pair for a mannequin display (particularly if the flying suit or trousers worn over the legs), but these boots are definitely not wearers!
OC74 USAAF Bombardier's Case type E-1 - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF Bombardier's Case type E-1 - Named to Lt. D. J. Perkins, service no. 0-731415. An extremely nice wartime example which could be researched. All zips are original Conmar and in good working order. The fitted interior is very clean and all in all this case would be hard to better.
2063 RAF 'D' Type Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 'D' Type Helmet - This example is of the second pattern, so probably dates from 1944. The helmet is in good issued condition with the receiver cups showing no signs of cracking. All snaps, poppers and buckles are in place and working. The lining is also clean and is named to Sgt. Williams and service no. 431427. The helmet is a size 3.
2903 Luftwaffe Aircrew Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Aircrew Flying Boots - This pair is as issued and in the condition we dream of, but rarely find! They are totally original in every respect and would be hard to better. The black leather sections are soft and supple, while the beige nubuck leg tops show minor staining. The zips are marked Ri Ri and D.R.P. and the boots have the original cloth manufacturer's labels. We estimate the size to be about UK 8, Continental 42, US 8 1/2. The soles are original and show minimal wear. We will wait a long time to find such an exceptional example of these increasingly rare boots.
2429 1936 Pattern Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture Sold1936 Pattern Flying Boots - This pair is RNZAF issue and are based upon the standard RAF 1936 pattern. They feature a black chrome leather upper with fleece lining and a leather tightening strap and buckle across the "V" shaped front opening. This variant does not have the internal leather pulls associated with the RAF boot. The top of the left leg is embossed NZ40 3246. This appears to be the RNZAF issue number, although it could be the owner's service number. The boots show some service use with mothing to the internal fur and they have been resoled at some stage. We cannot see a size marked, but they appear to be about a UK 8, Continental 42, US 8 1/2.
3054 RAF Brogue Waders - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Brogue Waders - An incredibly rare pair of ankle boots made of leather and canvas with hob nail leather soles, which were issued to men of the RAF for use when wading into the water to bring sea planes to moorings or the shore. The holes in the sides of the canvas uppers were designed to allow the boots to empty when the wearer left the water! The only other pair we have ever seen are in our own collection (not for sale!) and neither have we found an illustration in any of the specialist collectors' books. We will supply with this pair a scan of the original Air Ministry specificaiton sheet number 729/NA/1, which is dated 1942 and was issued to the contractor. This pair is in UK size 12, Continental 47, US 12 1/2, and other than slight scuffing, appear to be in unissued condition. Grab yourself a piece of RAF wartime history while you can, as we are unlikely ever to turn up another pair.
1785 Ladies' 'CC41' Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldLadies' 'CC41' Flying Boots - We have been unable to reference these boots, but they are very similar in design to the RAF 1936 pattern and feature a black polished leather upper with a suede leg and leather strap fastening. From studying contemporary photographs, we believe these may have been used by female pilots in the Air Transport Auxillary(ATA), who played an important part in WWII delivering all manner of aircraft from the manufacturers to the operational stations. Sewn into the fleece lining is a government standard stamp "CC41", together with reference B/M1 8 A52. The boots exhibit some service wear and the original leather soles appear to have been repaired, but a nice display example of an extremely rare flying boot. They are about a size 7, Continental 41, US 7 1/2.
2977 1939 Pattern RAF Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture Sold1939 Pattern RAF Flying Boots - Synonymous with Battle of Britain Fighter Pilots, the '39 pattern are becoming increasingly rare and this is the first pair we have had in for many months. They are the early pattern with a webbing strap to the top of the leg and feature black chrome leather uppers with canvas legs and fleece linings. The boots have the original leather and canvas pullers which are stamped with the King's Crown, A.M. and indicate size 8 fitting 6 and a contract date of 1939. While the canvas legs show minor scuffing, they are in far better condition than most examples of this pattern we have had. The original leather soles are fitted, but have been recently resoled in the forepart and new heel tips fitted. The left boot has the initials T.R. written at the top of the leg, but sadly we have no idea who the wartime owner was. A great pair to display in your RAF or Battle of Britain collection.
2674 1940 Pattern Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture Sold1940 Pattern Flying Boots - Standard issue RAF Flying Boots as favoured by Bomber Crews in WWII. They are a superb example with near unmarked brown suede and very clean fur lining. Original broad arrow marked lightning zips fitted. The "Itshide" soles and heels are original. The rubber galosh, which is often cracked and peeling on this pattern, is near perfect. The boots are a UK size 8, American 8 1/2, Continental 42.
2598 Luftwaffe Sommerfliegerkombi - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Sommerfliegerkombi - Superb original example of the second pattern with ring pull emergency release system and vertical zip fly. Manufactured by Bekleidungsfabrik Habelf and dated 1940. Fitted with original Elite zips, complete with leather pullers, all in good working order. The size is marked as 11A. The "pepper and salt" fabric is characteristic of suits worn by bomber crews in the Battle of Britain. This suit is in the condition we dream of finding but seldom do!
1644 USAAF Officer's Chocolate Tunic and 'Pinks' - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF Officer's Chocolate Tunic and 'Pinks' - An excellent example manufactured by Mart Schaffner & Marx and dated May, 1942.

995 USAAF D-1 Ground Crew Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF D-1 Ground Crew Jacket - This example is tailored without pockets and is manufactured by Werber Sportswear Company and contract dated 1942.
