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!

2573 Air Ministry Bell - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Bell - This example is a film prop produced for Pinewood Studios, using a genuine bell (chrome on brass), but with the addition of a King's Crown, A.M. and 1940 date to front. It is complete with metal ring hanger and red painted clapper. We have no idea which film this was used in, but ideal for the re-enactor or RAF collector on a modest budget! It measures 7.5" (19cm.) diameter and 9" (23cm.) high including hanger.
2572 Air Ministry 'Scramble' Bell - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry 'Scramble' Bell - Before you get too excited, this is an ex film prop from Pinewood Studios! While we do not usually offer reproduction items, this is actually a genuine bell chrome finished on brass, but engraved by the chaps at the studio prop department with the King's Crown, A.M. and 1940. The bell is fitted with a red top, embossed with the crown and is complete with clapper. Would be ideal for re-enactors, where it could be risky to use the genuine article, or for the RAF collector who cannot afford the real thing, even if he should find it! It measures 10" (25cm.) at the base and 14" (36cm.) high including hanger. Overall in good conditin but some wear to chrome finish.
