RAF Height and Air Speed Computer Mk I - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Height and Air Speed Computer Mk I - This is fare scarcer than the more commonly found Ican flight computer. This example is in excellent original condition and marked 6B/108 with a serial number dating it to 1940. It also carries AM and King's Crown stamps and manufactured by the London Name Plate Mfg Co. Ltd of London and Brighton. A similar example is shown in Prodger's RAF Flight Equipment book page 113 but ours is the earlier Mk I version. Diameter 6" (15 cm)

RFC Pattern 256 Aviation Compass - Click for the bigger picture SoldRFC Pattern 256 Aviation Compass - A very scarce example from the early days of aviation. This instrument is marked on the dial C.O. Aerocompass indicating it was designed by Captain F. O. Creagh-Osbourne, who was Superintendent of compasses at the Admiralty who produced the first aircraft compass in 1909. In addition to pattern 256 it is also marked with the number 646. The brass "diver's helmet" bowl contains a coloured 0-360 compass ring fitted on a jewelled pivot. When aircraft mounted the compass would have been suspended on a circular sprung mount while this item is display mounted on a mahogany board. The compass card is suspended in oil which contains a small air bubble. Measures 9" high (23 cm)

Single Barrel Leuchtpistole - Click for the bigger picture SoldSingle Barrel Leuchtpistole - The classic type carried by Luftwaffe single seat fighter pilots and many bomber crews both during the Battle of Britain and subsequently. 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.

Heinkel HE111 Crash Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldHeinkel HE111 Crash Relic - Mounted on a display board featuring a cut out picture of a similar aircraft. 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).

Badge to right breast with Molders Squadron and below a wild boar image. Left breast features a name tag marked Boss. Orange fabric high visibility interior lining. Knits show some age wear and a repair to the fabric behind the fold down collar. The issue label indicates manufactured by Beckumer Lederwerk and dated 12/65.

Airforce 3/4 Length Flying Coat - Click for the bigger picture SoldAirforce 3/4 Length Flying Coat - A fine example in black leather with a fur collar and blanket lined. The style is reminiscent of flying coats used by early aviators in WWI, although we believe this example to be later. It is fitted with pebble finished brass buttons which are marked on the reverse C.C.Sporrong Stockholm and as this company made buttons and badges for the Swedish Armed Forces, we have deduced that this is where the coat originated from. Clearly if any visitors can give us a more definite identification, we will happily add this to the description. The only label we can find is sewn to the interior lining and the only readable information is a large number 1. The coat incorporates two flat pockets and a half belt to the rear and would be ideal for re-enactment, period flying or a superb windproof coat for open driving. It is in beautiful original condition with no faults and we would estimate it would fit up to a 44" chest (112 cm).

DH60 Propeller Blade and Hub - Click for the bigger picture SoldDH60 Propeller Blade and Hub - The DH60 is the code for the De Havilland. The DH60 is otherwise known as the Gipsy Moth. The hub is stamped 80 hp and Cirrus and dated March 1926. The Cirrus engine was soon replaced after early production indicating this propeller is from an early example of the aircraft. One blade has been removed near the hub while the other, which is covered in the original green painted canvas, carries a signature which looks to be J. Bell, who we speculate could have been the pilot reponsible for the loss of the missing blade. A very decorative example from the early days of aviation, measures 45" (114 cm)

Coverall Flyers Summer Spec MILC-83141A - Click for the bigger picture SoldCoverall Flyers Summer Spec MILC-83141A - Fully badged with rank bars and German flag.

Left breast has a further squadron badge marked 312 Jubo. Orange fabric high visibility interior lining. Knits all is good condition.

In addition the lid is engraved with a fine facsimile of an RAF Pilot's King's Crown Brevet. 78 squadron joined the front line in July 1940 flying Whitley Bombers as part of 4 Group based at Dishforth. Victor Roberton Paterson won a DFC 11.02.41 and was subsequently posted to join 101 squadron of 3 Group. On 21st September, 1942, Paterson was skipper of Wellington III coded X3815 flying out of RAF Stradishall on a "Gardening" sortie over Kiel Bay and off the coast of Denmark. He was attacked over Jylland by a German night fighter.
