Reference Stock Item   Description
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.
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.
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.
1365 Dinghy Knife - Click for the bigger picture SoldDinghy Knife - As packed in RAF dinghy kit with cork handle to enable the knife to float in water and a rounded end to prevent damage to the boat. Stores ref. 27C/2023 (knife)and 27C/2024 (sheath). This example in near mint condition complete with sheath and lanyard. 26cm.
2659 Aircraft First Aid Kit - Click for the bigger picture SoldAircraft First Aid Kit - Complete with its original contents. The canvas pack is faintly stamped on the flap First Aid Outfit Aircraft and the inside is stamped with a King's Crown, AM, the maker's name and 1941. This example has most of its original contents including shell dressing, iodine ampoules, plaster, bandages, gentian violet jelly and torniquet. It even has thge RAF Form 1203, dated 1940 listing the original contents and instructions for use. Please note the Morphia ampoules are missing. Sold as a collector's item only.
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.
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.
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)
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.
2057 RAF B type Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF B type Helmet - This example is dated 1938 and made by Frank Bryan. Marked size 2 but fits more like a 4. The helmet has been field modified and is fitted with Gosport tubes in good working order. Now looking for a Tiger Moth to plug it into!
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.
357 Observation Binoculars - Click for the bigger picture SoldObservation Binoculars - WWII, RAF issue, in original issue case. Stamped with Kings Crown, AM, ref. 6E/293 on instrument and case. Good optics but would benefit from cleaning.
3251 Air Raid Precaution First Aid Tin - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Raid Precaution First Aid Tin - Complete with much of its original wartime contents! The tin is in original black paint with red band and A.R.P. picked out in white. It is stamped on the base 1939. Inside the lid it has a label indicating the original contents and the fact it was issued to Wardens Post 1A in the borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme. These kits are becoming increasingly rare and this is the first we have had with a selection of potions and lotions. Sold as a collector's item only and a great relic from the war on the Home Front. 30cm x 19cm x 20cm (11.5" x 7.5" x 8")
2106 Flare Pistol - Click for the bigger picture SoldFlare Pistol - "Leuchpistole" were carried by German Military in WW11 including Luftwaffe fighter and bomber crews. This example was made by Erma-Erfurt and dated 1940. Often carried in the fitted holster in "channel trousers" and would have been secured by a rope lanyard. The pistol has been deactivated in line with UK Firearms Law and is supplied with a certificate under the terms of the Firearms Act 1988. In good issued condition. Great display piece!

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.
1404 RAF Aircrew Wrist Watch - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Aircrew Wrist Watch - WWII, by Waltham Ref 6B/234. This watch has a 6/0B 17 jewel movement - it would have been a substitute watch issued in place of an original. Correct specification replacement strap fitted. Excellent running order.
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").
