Luftwaffe Grey Leather Flight Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Grey Leather Flight Jacket - National flag and rank bars to sleeves. Badge to right breast with NATO AWACS E-3A Compnent. There is evidence where further squadron patches have previously been attached but now removed. Orange fabric high visibility interior lining.

German Airforce No1 Dress Tunic - Click for the bigger picture SoldGerman Airforce No1 Dress Tunic - Item comprises an officer's tunic with rank badges to lapels and shoulder boards highlighted in yellow with silver piping. To the right breast is a gold gilt brevet and below a badge featuring aircraft and the number 38. Attached to the right shoulder is a silver landyard with gold eagle badge to the top, while on the left pocket is a further gold finish badge with an eagle and the number 5 below. The jacket is marked size 56 and would appear to fit comfortably a 42" (107 cm) chest size. The inside label appears to date this garment to 1994. The cloth is generally in very good issued condition but with with a couple of very small moth nips but these do not detract when on display. A very smart tunic!

RAF Silver Plate Cigarette Case - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Silver Plate Cigarette Case - A very clean example which carries a finely engraved RAF King's Crown Pilot's brevet to the front of the case. Inside it is simply marked Made in England. Sadly the original owner did not add his name so we can only speculate on its provenance but would have been an essential bit of off duty kit for aircrew of the time. Hinge and catch both in good working order. Measures 3.75" x 3.5" (10 cm x 9 cm)

WAAF WWII Pattern Issue Shirt - Click for the bigger picture SoldWAAF WWII Pattern Issue Shirt - We are pleased to offer a rare WAAF issue shirt that came in with a WAAF tunic which we have also just listed. It is in very good issued condition and is made from light blue-grey cotton fabric. Other than a minor stain to the rear right back shoulder we can't see any other issues in terms of damage, stains or moth. The shirt is clearly cut for the female figure, having pleats let into the front shoulder area. The shirt buttons from the left (female) side and it also carries a small open top patch pocket on the left breast. Inked on the inside collar is a service number 2010225 and it is named to Waters S. The shirt comes with a detachable collar that is Kings Crown and AM marked with the code H544685/41 which would date it to 1941 and is named to Ranson with a service number 451639. Clearly the collar has been mixed up at some stage but it appears to fit correctly and it comes complete with a two period collar studs. The collar shows signs of use but is generally in good shape with just minor age staining and the fabric is not quite as bright as on the shirt, which is to be expected. A near identical example is illustrated on page 81 of Bayley & Ingram's excellent 'WWII British Women's Uniforms' reference booklet. No size is marked but we estimate this would be a good fit on a size 14.

WAAF Other Ranks WWII Pattern Service Cap - Click for the bigger picture SoldWAAF Other Ranks WWII Pattern Service Cap - Another item that came in with a small WAAF collection we have recently bought. This is example is a very nicely made replica that has clearly had very little use. The cap is in excellent order with no damage and the lining is factory fresh. A brass kings Crown badge is fitted; this could well be an original item. The chin strap is leather and the underside of the black peak is finished in the authentic green wartime specification. It carries no makers marks to indicate its origins and whilst no size is shown we would estimate it being a good fit on a size 22.5" diameter head or c. 56 cm.

WAAF Officers Re-Enactors Uniform - Click for the bigger picture SoldWAAF Officers Re-Enactors Uniform - Another item from the small WAAF collection we have in. Here the tunic jacket appears to be an original item and we believe dates to WWII and unlike the other tunic we have listed today has not been 're-clocked'!.It carries a makers label, now somewhat faded, reading M.Walker Ltd, 47 Albemarle Street, London. The rest has faded away over the years. Below in white ink is B 36 and W 30 which we assume to be the bust and waist sizing. The jacket is to WWII specification with brass Kings Crown buttons (made by Gaunt) and a brass belt buckle. The tunic shows some service wear and moth nips but generally in decent display condition. The skirts that came with it is of later manufacture and carries an MOD label stating 'Skirt Woman's Blue-Grey 1972 Pattern'. The size is marked as 67/64/96; we have no idea what this means but it is small! It was made by Watts & stone Ltd. This again shows some service wear and like the tunic could benefit from a dry clean. Check our the other WAAF related items that came in with this set which we are also listing today.

RAF Watch Tower Telephone - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Watch Tower Telephone - Here's something that has more style than your i phone and exudes period charm! This is an RAF telephone clearly used in the airfield Control Tower but sadly we do not know on what base it served. The phone is the older type without a dial and dates from the days when you actually spoke to a real human being to get connected! To the front are two period notices one advising 'In case of Fire Dial 117' and confirms location as 'Tower' The other transfer advises 'Warning Do NOT Discuss Classified Information', on the basis of the war time adage 'The Walls have Ears'! The base of the instrument is stamped with various details and is over stencilled with 'BASE COMM.' This phone we would estimate dates from the Cold War period and is possibly early 1960's manufacture. Looks to be in good issued condition although the receiver wire is frayed but this could easily be rewired and the fraying 'lost' within the unit. Like all items listed for sale on the site on offer as a collectible and we can't warrant if it could be made operational again but would look great on an appropriate desk!

Art Deco Bakelite RAF Trinket Box - Click for the bigger picture SoldArt Deco Bakelite RAF Trinket Box - A classic example of a 1930's Art Deco trinket box with a design to the lid that shouts Odeon cinema! The box is made from brown fleck Bakelite and carries an applied RAF kings Crown brevet to the lid which could possibly have been fashioned from a sweetheart badge. The lid hinges up and reveals a decent size storage area inside and no doubt would have been used on a ladies desk or dressing table. Bakelite was prone to chipping and this box is no exception with a very small chip to the rear top right corner of the lid but this really does not detract from a rather unusual and attractive piece that will appeal to both an RAF, Bakelite or 1930's collector. Measures 4" x 4" x 3 1/2" high (10 cm x 10 cm x 8.5 cm)

RAF C Type flying helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF C Type flying helmet - This is an early example of the second pattern internally wired helmet so unlike many C helmets found this one would almost certainly be of wartime manufacture. The leather shell is in good issued condition with very minor scuffing to the finish in a couple of areas. The snaps and clips for the E*, G, or H pattern oxygen mask are all in place ; the snaps need to be treated with some respect if fitting an oxygen mask as they appear a little tender but fine for display purposes. All straps are good and the press studs are in place and working ; being an early spec helmet it features just two straps at the rear as opposed to four on post war C helmets. The rubber receiver carriers are good and firm with no splits and both are fitted with matched receivers marked with AM, Kings Crown and 10A/13466. The loom is the wider diameter wartime spec and the brown bell plug is marked 10H/10991. We have nothing here to test the avionics on so this helmet, like others offered, is for sale as a collectable only. The chinstrap is good but has lost some elasticity over the years. Inside the lining shows good honest service wear and it is named to the original owner 'Barker' with RAF service number 1812630. If any visitors to the site have any information on him please let us know and we can add detail to this description. One ear 'doughnut' has minor wear to the cover but all in all this is a good honest wartime C helmet in the condition it was in when it came out of service and no doubt it would have a story to tell. The size stamping is now indistinct but looks like 6 7/8 –7 which would make it a size 2 so RAF stores reference 22C/878. Not mint but these early examples of the second pattern C are becoming increasingly hard to find now -so grab it while you can!

RAF Air Ministry Marked Navigator's Parallel Rule - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Air Ministry Marked Navigator's Parallel Rule - These were issued to RAF navigators in the early part of WWII, prior to the introduction of the Douglas Combined Protractor. This example is AM marked and dated 1942 as well as Captain Fields Improved Apparatus. It is in good issued condition but with a small chip to the top left section of the rule as is often the case with a working instrument of this type. Measures 18" (45 cm)

Luftwaffe Model 10-76A Replica Schwimmveste - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Model 10-76A Replica Schwimmveste - This example was purchased in Germany but carries no clues to its origins. Suffice to say someone has gone to a lot of trouble to produce this detailed replica. I had the opportunity to show it to Steve Kiddle of Pegasus Militaria (who we believe makes the best replica RAF Mae Wests on the market) who confirmed it was not his handiwork but agreed it is well executed and would have been both complicated and expensive to produce. This is the early Battle of Britain pattern designated Fl 30156, with the full- back kapoks that proved to be a design fault in that unconscious aircrew were often left in a face down position in the water and which resulted in the modified 10-76 B-1 replacing it in 1943. The vest has some nice detail including the correct wooden peg button arrangement, crutch strap and head flotation pads to the back. This Schwimmveste is the ideal alternative for the re-enactor who does not want to risk a using an original..or who does not have a £1400 budget to purchase one! This item would also work well on a mannequin or in a museum display. We have no idea if these are being made commercially or if this is a one off ; certainly we have just the one so but it is a comfortable fit over my 42" chest (107.) Overall condition is close to mint.

Luftwaffe Officers Fliegermetze Side cap - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Officers Fliegermetze Side cap - A fine officers private purchase example in the standard 'Schiffchen' or boat shape. The design was originally adopted in 1935 and was specified to be used when other forms of head-dress was not required to be worn by regulations. Whilst not technically flight clothing they were often taken on operational flights so in the event of being captured aircrew could still be appropriately dressed! This example was originally purchased from one of our customers and has since been in my personal collection. It is made in blue-grey wool of a better grade than used on Other Ranks caps and remains in excellent condition. It comes with silver cord piping on top of the turn-up signifying for officers use and it carries a machine embroidered Luftwaffe eagle and national cockade below. Both are hand stitched to the cap. Inside is equally clean and is lined with a blue-grey cotton twill. It does not have a makers mark and the only stamping is the size which is 55. This example, like many Officers caps of this design, does not have a sweat band is fitted. Like all items offered off our site this is fully guaranteed as an original item and we believe it would be hard to find a crisper example.

20MM Aircraft Cannon Feed Shute - Click for the bigger picture Sold20MM Aircraft Cannon Feed Shute - We were advised by the previous owner this item was originally fitted to a De Havilland Mosquito, although this pattern was used on a number of wartime and early post war aircraft. It has numerous numbers stamped on it including C207027 ISIS & AST316 in a circle and W3 in another circle. The shute has a sprung catch arrangement and it looks to be in generally excellent used condition but for sale purely as a collectable. Measures 11" (28 cm).

WWII Blitz Ashtray Made Of Stone Recovered From The Houses of Parliament - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Blitz Ashtray Made Of Stone Recovered From The Houses of Parliament - The London Stonecraft Company were permitted to make souvenirs for sale to the general public to raise funds on behalf of HRH The Duke of Gloucester's Red Cross and St. John Fund. The objects they produced included bookends, inkwells, letter racks, ashtrays and serviette rings and they utilised stones recovered from historic bombed London buildings including the House of Commons after being bombed by the Luftwaffe in the London Blitz in 1940 and 1941. They also used historic stone from other damaged London buildings particularly from the East End that was very badly hit. Our ashtray is made from Portland Stone and a hand written label stating 'Made from the bombed houses of Parliament 1941' is attached to the base. The edge of the astray features stone in the rough and is dressed stone to top ; the base is covered in felt. The centre of the ashtray carries a British Lion and below the legend 'London 1941'. From our research the Houses of Parliament were bombed by the Luftwaffe on 20th September 1940, 8th December the same year and again on 10/11 May 1941 a raid which caused the greatest damage to the Palace of Westminster. Interestingly The House of Lords had more luck in being struck by a bomb which passed through the floor of the Chamber without exploding! Our ashtray measures 6" diameter and stands 1.25" tall (15 cm x 3 cm) The lead seal shows minor age wear (as shown in our picture) but this does not detract form a historical souvenir from the darkest days of WWII.

Russian Aviators Face Mask - Click for the bigger picture SoldRussian Aviators Face Mask - We were advised when purchased this mask was used by airmen in exposed crew positions to insulate the face and prevent frostbite and that it dates from circa WWII. We would not profess to be experts on Soviet era flying kit so we will leave it to prospective purchasers to ascertain exactly what we have here. We have however been able to match the mask very closely with a Russian example in an aviation museum so the facts look to be correct. It does not carry a makers label to give any clues although on the elastic straps are two ink stamps but these are not very clear but we can make out a '40' that might indicate a manufacturing date of 1940? The mask itself is in excellent condition and made from soft tan leather with the inside being lined with short hair fur as found on a small rodent. So if you are into Russian flight clothing (or S & M! this one could be for you!
