RAF Mk III Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk III Flying Goggles - Most examples of these we see are RCAF issue but this pair are a scarce Air Ministry marked goggle, dating to 1935. The back strap features clear AM and King's Crown embossing, together with the stores ref. no. 22C/69. The brass frames are good with most of the original paint in place. The perspex lenses are excellent as is the leather face mask and velvet sections. The canvas spring covers are good but the springs are showing some distortion, although mounted with a display helmet, they look fine. The bridge stops and vents are all perfect. A rare example of pre war and Battle of Britain period flying goggles. They would display well with the RAF B type helmet we are also listing.

RAF 1940 dated Kit Bag - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 1940 dated Kit Bag - Originally issued to Higbey whose service no. was 1198025. Sadly we have no history on his service career but he has clearly written his name on the side of the bag and on the top flap cover. The bag carries a good clear AM stamp, King's Crown and the emotive 1940 manufacturing date. We checked to see if, by chance, Higbey was one of the "Few" but sadly this is not the case. Minor service wear but overall in exceptional condition and would be perfect for a period aviation display or for re-enactment purposes. Complete with closure rope and the brass eyelets are in perfect condition.

Measures 9" (23 cm)

This example is made by Erma-Erfurt and carries the classic date 1940. While we have no provenance with it, it is likely to have served in the Summer of 1940 and during the Battle of Britain. Excellent grips, lanyard ring and metalwork. The flare pistol comes with a deactivation certificate and can be legally owned in the UK without the need of a fire arms certificate.

USAAF Roughwear B-3 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF Roughwear B-3 Flying Jacket - A classic original WWII flight jacket by perhaps the most famous contractor. This example features the classic veg tanned redskin contrast leather and the label confirms the contract no. 42-511D, dating it to 1942. The size is marked as a 40 regular. The zip is a correct specification Talon replacement. Despite the stunning look of this jacket, it has had extensive repairs and while it will make a perfect example in a collection, it is certainly not strong enough to wear. B-3's are getting increasingly hard to find in any condition.

RAF 60th Anniversary Commemorative Glass - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 60th Anniversary Commemorative Glass - Finely engraved with the RAF crest surmounted by Per Ardva Ad Astra and below 1918-1978. This glass was clearly issued to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the RAF and is in perfect condition. It would sit happily in an RAF collection but with its heavy base would make an extremely practical whiskey tumbler.

We don't have any specific information on the aircraft or crash date other than it came down at Harwich in 1940. The relic appears to be a cable control wheel in original paint and showing signs of crash damage. This item looks as though it may have been taken as a souvenir at the time rather than being wreck dug. Wheel diameter 6" (15 cm).
