Luftwaffe Model 306 Fliegerschutzbrille by O.W.Wagner & Co - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Model 306 Fliegerschutzbrille by O.W.Wagner & Co - flying goggles model 306 which are often referred to as by the generic term Leitz. This set are in average plus issued condition. The rubber face cushions show some age wear but are generally good for display purposes. The central nose bridge is good and is fitted with two small adjust screws. It is maker marked to the reverse O.W.The black painted alloy frames are good and are fitted with above average glass lenses. The original back strap is still elastic and in very good shape. The original issue card box and spare lenses are now absent. These goggles are now getting hard to find in any condition; these are realistically priced to reflect their overall condition
PC136
German Air Force Flight Waist Coat - Click for the bigger picture SoldGerman Air Force Flight Waist Coat - Fitted with zipped equipment pockets on left and right waist band and with a central Riri zip fastener. There is a metal clip attachment to the left breast and a further zipper fitted around the neck where we believe other items may have been attached in service. The jacket has a lacing tensioning system to the rear and while we aren't entirely sure of use, believe it may form part of an anti-G suit. The identification label has been washed clean so no clues to the specification or manufacturer.

RAF Observers Parachute pack - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Observers Parachute pack - whilst this example has had its label removed the stores reference number is 15A/141. The two point detachable chest pack was stored separately in the aircraft and designed to be clipped to the Observers harness by the engagement of a pair of steel loops mounted on the reverse with a pair of hooded snap-hooks located on the chest. This example is manufactured the usual sandy coloured cotton canvas which shows average service wear. It is complete with all the webbing grab handles and is fitted with the D-ring ripcord handle stamped IAC (Irvin Air Chute); the rip cord handle housing shows some stitch repairs. The pack is fitted with a full set on elastic bungees which show some stretching but overall it is in very good used condition with light soiling and minor wear to the grab handles. No canopy fitted but the pack is stuffed with a polypropylene block so has the correct shape for display or re-enactment purposes. These are now getting extremely difficult to find and particularly so with all the 'plumbing'.Please check out the complementary Observers harness which we have also just listed.

RAF Observers parachute harness Stores Refrence 15A/137 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Observers parachute harness Stores Refrence 15A/137 - manufactured by G & T.L. & stamped with serial number 92369. Designed for use with clip-on chest-type parachute packs. This is a genuine RAF/British manufactured example rather than more commonly found Canadian version. Cream/white webbing with a central black fleck;both shoulder straps are stamped AM with a Kings Crown property mark. The harness features the fully rounded QR box as fitted to wartime British harnesses as opposed to the D shaped QRB found on RCAF and post war issue examples. The pack attachment clips are again in perfect condition and fully functioning. Fitted with an original back pad which is again in good condition but some minor staining;it does not seem to have ever carried a label. The harness is well above average condition and the QRB functions perfectly. Mick Prodger's excellent 'Luftwaffe V RAF Flight Equipment' features a near identical example by the same maker illustrated on page 18. A very fine original example of what is becoming increasingly hard to find. Please see the complementary observer parachute pack we have also just listed.

RAF King's Crown Match Box Cover - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF King's Crown Match Box Cover - Manufactured from metal, the cover carries RAF wings logo to the front and an edited version of Winston Churchill's "Never in the field of human conflict..." speech to the reverse with a 1940 date. Inside is an empty Bryant and May match box showing some age wear. These covers were first issued in 1941. In excellent original condition and would complement the RAF cigarette case we have also listed today, item 6119. Measures 2.25" x 1.5" (6 cm x 4 cm)

RAF C Type Flying Helmet 2nd Pattern - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF C Type Flying Helmet 2nd Pattern - Classic example of the internally wired helmet which entered service in 1944. This helmet was displayed in an aviation museum for many years and is of museum quality. The leather shell is exceptional with no damage or flaking. The stores ref. no. 22C/880 is clearly embossed in the leather confirming this is a size 4, making it the largest size offered. This is a fully wired helmet with receivers, loom and a bell plug fitted. We have no idea if the avionics are working, so like all items on offer for sale as a collectable. Inside the lining shows signs of service use and for an issued helmet, this example would be hard to improve upon, particularly in this desirable large size.

RNZAF 3 Squadron Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRNZAF 3 Squadron Flying Jacket - This example's nomenclature indicates Jacket Flyers CWU-45/P and is manufactured by Isratex Inc. It is also marked large (42"-44"). While the original owner's name has been obliterated, he was a Flt. Lieutenant serving with No. 3 Squadron RNZAF confirmed by the shoulder titles and an extremely nice original badge with the legend Kimihia Ka Patu. The jacket has a heavy Scovill zip in good working order. The outer nylon shell and knits are also in good shape just showing minor service wear. The flap pockets have velcro fastenings and the left sleeve carries a further pocket, pen holder, etc. This is an extremely comfortable and original flight jacket in a good size and not often encountered here in the UK.

Fairey 111D Propeller Hub Trenchart - Click for the bigger picture SoldFairey 111D Propeller Hub Trenchart - Made in the form of a planter with a plaque to the front confirming the provenance and dated 1929. The Fairey 111D was the standard training aircraft of the RAF and FAA from 1920 to 1927 and was used in flying off trials from HMS Argos, the first flush deck aircraft carrier. In 1924 two WWI pilots achieved a distance record in a 111D circumnavigating Australia, 13, 570 kilometres in a 44 day marathon! The propeller hub is hollowed out and is reminiscent of a Grecian urn and would make a unique planter for an Aspidistra! Height 15" (38 cm).

RAF WWII Panel Clock Mk IIB - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF WWII Panel Clock Mk IIB - This example carries a serial number to the dial and is dated 1944. The dial is also marked 8 days. The case is made from moulded Bakelite and it is wound and the hands set from the adjuster located at the 5 o'clock position. The reverse of the case carries an embossed King's Crown and AM. Whilst the clock will run, it stops after some time so would benefit from a clean or service in order to restore to full working order. On offer therefore in A/F condition with a price to reflect this.

Fleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - This pattern differs from the RAF version in having zip receiver cups fitted and as a result is often mis-identified as an RAF B type. This example is in average + issued condition with the leather shell showing some age wear. It is fully wired and interestingly the receivers fitted are USN/USAAF model ANB-H-1, manufactured by Western Electric and we speculate the helmet may have found its way to a US airman in WWII. The receiver cups also have Gosport tube attachments fitted. The wiring loom shows some fraying. The inside is good issued condition. No size markings but we believe this helmet corresponds to a decent RAF size 3. Not mint but a very decent disply example on offer at a realistic price.

RAF Bino Prism U-Boat Spotting Mk IV Binoculars - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Bino Prism U-Boat Spotting Mk IV Binoculars - A very clean set marked with stores ref. 6E/383, featuring 5 x 40 cemented prisms and were the very first wartime binoculars to use coated lenses. This design is fixed focus and intended for aerial spotting and maritime reconnaissance. The same pattern was also used by Fleet Air Arm crews. The serial number on these is 5084 which seem to date them to a WWII manufacture. The rubber face guard was designed to help the user maintain night vision. The Mk IV's were made by Ross for the RAF and first entered service in 1941. The optics are still crisp and this set benefits from being complete with it transit case. The neck strap is not original.

This is a Used Book
Aircraft Recognition - Click for the bigger picture SoldAircraft Recognition

First published in 1941, this is a revised edition of 1943. Interestingly on the opening page a note states "Leave this book at a post office when you have finished it, so men and women of the services may enjoy it too! No mention is made of enemy agents who clearly would have gleaned much from the 192 pages which are packed full of illustrations and line drawings. The volume covers both allied and axis aircraft types current in the mid years of WWII. Minor age wear.

USAAF Polaroid Variable Density Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF Polaroid Variable Density Goggles - This set are in mint unissued condition and come complete with the original tin marked American Optical Company Contract N.X.S.S. 27918. The front of the goggles are embossed AO (for American Optical) and Polaroid. The variable density red lenses operate using the central knob. This pattern of flight goggles was designed for use by Air Gunners to aid spotting tracer in different light conditions. Rubber is in perfect condition as is the elastic back strap. It would be hard to find a crisper example.

RAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket - A very clean example of the increasingly rare hooded jacket with so many having had the high visibility yellow hood cut away post war to facilitate motor cycle use. This jacket has original zips fitted; the most zip is an early specification Dot, while the sleeve zips are AM Lightning. Inside the leather hanger is in place, although there is no sign of a label having ever been fitted. The leather panels are all in good shape with just one small repair patch to the rear of the left armpit but this has been very neatly applied. Minor wear to waist and cuff fur, whilst the belt is good with all the orignal eyelets in place. Having no label, we have estimated the size to be a good fit on a 38-40" chest. This would display well with item 6109, the thermally insulated trousers we have also listed today.

RAF 79 Squadron Stoneware Tankard by Royal Doulton - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 79 Squadron Stoneware Tankard by Royal Doulton - 79 Squadron were formed in 1917, disbanded in 1919 and reformed in 1937. The squadron received Hawker Hurricanes prior to WWII and took part in the Battle of France. In August 1940 they moved to Biggin Hill and subsequently to Pembry and fought with distinction in the Battle of Britain and throughout WWII. The squadron were disbanded again in 1945. Our tankard is embossed with a Royal Doulton maker's mark to the base which indicates the date of manufacture was sometime between 1923 and 1956. The front carries the RAF crest which is surmounted by a King's Crown and with 79 squadron below. While impossible to give an exact date of manufacture, we believe this to be a period item dating from WWII and would form a fine addition to an RAF or Battle of Britain collection. If only it could talk! Capacity 1 pint.

RAF Irvin Flying Suit Thermally Insulated Trousers - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Irvin Flying Suit Thermally Insulated Trousers - Designed to be worn in conjunction with the insulated flying jacket and much favoured by bomber aircrew in WWII. This example carries a label indicating a size 3 example, stores ref. 22C/319. These came from a aviation museum display depicting a Wellington crew member. The leather is in generally excellent issued condition and the fur lining is exceptional. The original brasses are fitted and remain elastic. The only issue with this set is that one zip is missing the puller while the other is missing the puller arm. Both zips are therefore sewn closed but this does not detract from a display point of view. These would pair up nicely with the Coastal Command Irvin flying jacket we have also listed today. Competitively priced.

Wellington Parachute Drill Air Safety Poster - Click for the bigger picture SoldWellington Parachute Drill Air Safety Poster - This is an original WWII issue safety poster marked IOU/13189 RAF Restricted and would have been used to familiarise Wellington aircrew how to correctly stow parachute packs in their aircraft. On the reverse side are further drawings illustrating bail out procedures from the various crew positions. This is the first example of this type of poster that we have had and suspect very few have survived. In excellent crisp condition with one minor tear to the right edge but this does not detract and would look wonderful framed and glazed. We will no doubt wait a long time to find another. 38" X 26" (97 cm x 66 cm)

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.

Luftwaffe Model 10-6701 Two point oxygen mask - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Model 10-6701 Two point oxygen mask - To complement the other Luftwaffe items we have listed today is this incredibly scarce two point oxygen mask. Almost all that surface on the collectors market today have been lake recovered or are largely rebuilt with non original parts and harness fitted. This example is 100% original and is clearly early production using green rubber with a chamois leather face apron. Later in the war supplies of masks to this specification dried up as all rubber production was at that time controlled by the allies and the Luftwaffe had then to rely on black synthetic manufactured masks. It does not carry any makers marks or codes but it is embossed 2 indicating the size. The harness is in top condition with the green rubber of the mask below it showing close to the original shade. The mask features a double strap harness arrangement and is located on a central lug. The straps terminate with large retaining clips. The oxygen tube is again in very crisp condition with the bulldog clip being clearly marked AB confirming the maker Auer. These masks were favoured by fighter pilots; please check out the how good this example looks when displayed with the LKpN 101 helmet we have listed today. We make no apology for the price we are asking. This is a fine example of a fighter pilots oxygen mask that would be hard to better and therefore attracts the same, if not more interest, than the RAF D mask that now regularly achieve a similar or greater price.

RAF Propeller Tip Picture Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Propeller Tip Picture Frame - A fine example of WWII trenchart with a picture frame insert featuring an RAF airman in great coat and forage cap. Mounted above is an RAF other ranks cap badge. The reverse has a hand crafted alloy support for desk use. We checked inside in case the picture was identified but sadly it is not. We did find, however, a further photograph most probably of the same airman which was marked La Rue Suliman Pacha, La Caire, so our frame appears to have originated from Egypt and would have been made from a propeller taken from a crashed British, German or Italian aircraft. La Rue Suliman Pacha, Cairo was renamed in 1964.
