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)

Left breast has a further squadron badge marked 312 Jubo. Orange fabric high visibility interior lining. Knits all is good condition. The issue label has been removed but the size label in the collar is marked 15 and we estimate it would fit chest size 44-46" (112-117 cm)

Samovar Presented to F/Lt V.R. Paterson - Click for the bigger picture SoldSamovar Presented to F/Lt V.R. Paterson - Engraved from the Officers and NCO's of 78 Squadron on the occasion of his marriage 18/10/40. 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. Two of his crew bailed out from the burning aircraft and were subsequently captured but Patterson and the other two crew members fell with the aircraft and lost their lives in the subsequent crash on Spandet Moor. Squadron Leader Paterson DFC was just 26 years old and his wife Jane Roberton Paterson was widowed after exactly 23 months of marriage. Paterson and his two crew mates are buried in the Aabenraa Military Cemetary in Denmark close to where they fell. This samovar is an emotive tribute to 3 of the 55, 500 brave aircrew of Bomber Command who made the ultimate sacrifice. On offer as a decorative item. Measures 12.5" (32 cm)

4679
RAF B Type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF B Type Flying Helmet - A very fine issued example of the classic Battle of Britain helmet which was the standard pattern for all air crew from 1935 to 1941. This one is named to Warrant Officer L. E. Hart who we were advised by a rear gunner on Sunderland Flying Boats serving with 230 squadron. While the helmet never appears to have had a label fitted, it is a large size, certainly a 3 if not a 4. The leather is soft with none of the normal flaking, both receivers zips work fine and the receiver carriers are fitted as well as foam ear cushions but lacking receivers. The Bennett buckles retain their leather covers. One chrome end to the chin strap is missing and poppers are fitted for the D type oxygen mask. The lining is in good condition but showing normal service wear. B types are getting incredibly scarce and few match the condition of this example.

Anti Aircraft Shell Head Fuse - Click for the bigger picture SoldAnti Aircraft Shell Head Fuse - We believe this item of trenchart to be from a 3.7" or 3.9" WWII AA shell which has been display mounted on a hardwood base. The fuse is clearly marked with no. 199 1V FL 10/38 and RL 12/38 537. It has further engraving of an omega sign, safe and a small broad arrow, together with a 0 to 30 scale. The various components unscrew and it makes a decorative display item. Due to international regulations, this item is restricted for sale to UK based collectors only. Measures 4.25" high excluding base (10.5 cm)

Aircraft Blind Flying Panel Type 1 - Click for the bigger picture SoldAircraft Blind Flying Panel Type 1 - This replica has been sold but we have just purchased a 1A version which is similar but is constructed with a 16" radius at the top to facilitate installation when fitted to the contours of a fighter cockpit. It is made up in alloy to the original specification and has been laser cut and is pre-drilled to take the appropriate instruments. It has been copied from an original Air Ministry BFP marked 6A/760 and is of the type used on Spitfires and other aircraft of WWII. Would provide an ideal start point to create a replica BFP or as a component for a complete instrument panel. Please contact us for photographs of the actual panel available.

Air Ministry Marked Candle Sticks - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Marked Candle Sticks - A matched pair finished in chrome on brass with turned stems in an art deco style. No maker's marks but each is embossed with an AM and crown, so we have assumed these were probably a Mess item, rather than trenchart. Measures 9.5" tall (24 cm)
3528
Air Ministry Amperes Test Guage - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Amperes Test Guage - Comes complete with a broad arrow marked issue case. The instrument is made by Compton Parkinson Ltd. with patent nos. indicating 1924 and 1927. The dial is graduated from 05-25 and is AM and King's Crown marked. We believe the instrument was used to measure the flow of current through a cable. It appears in excellent condition but on offer as a collector's item only! Measures 8.5" (22 cm)
5057
Swift Training Rifle 9B/1508 series B - Click for the bigger picture SoldSwift Training Rifle 9B/1508 series B - This is not actually a firearm but was designed in WWII as an instructional tool to teach handling, holding, aiming and firing, without the need of amunition or range. The B series model was broadly representative of the P14 or Lee Enfield Mk III service rifles. From 1942 these rifles were issued to the RAF and Home Guard and post war were used for rifle training by the ATC. This example is AID marked so was clearly used by the RAF. While we cannot guarantee the accuracy (!), it does appear to be in working order and comes complete with photocopy documentation issued by the manufacturer Frederick J. Minns of Oxford. A most unusual item for the specialist RAF or firearms collector. Measures 47" (119 cm)
4784
Irvin Air Chute Battle of Britain period Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldIrvin Air Chute Battle of Britain period Flying Jacket - A fine example and despite having no label the classic square collar, narrow belt loops and tan cow hide indicate this to be of IAC manufacture probably from a 1939 or 40 contract. This jacket was originally wired but the plugs and electrical connections have been carefully removed. The leather is very soft and just one small repair patch to the left sleeve. All zips are original Dot and in good working order. Inside the characteristic short pile fur is in near mint condition, collar strap and rings in place and the waist belt is perfect. This jacket has an interesting story to tell. We are advised it belonged to a pilot who crashed in Ankaran near the hospital and a few miles from the liner Rex, sunk by the RAF in Slovenia in 1944. The pilot was rescued by the partisans minutes before the Germans arrived. Sadly we don't have further details of the incident. His jacket, however, certainly survived and we very much hope he did as well. We estimate this jacket to be a size 5 and would fit chest sizes up to 42" (107 cm)

Royal Auxiliary Air Force 609 Squadron Pewter Tankard - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Auxiliary Air Force 609 Squadron Pewter Tankard - 609 (West Riding) was formed in 1936 originally as a Bomber Squadron but in 1938 transferred to fighters and was issued with Mk I Spitfires in 1939. 609 participated at Dunkirk and in the Battle of Britain from Middle Wallop. They destroyed 46 enemy aircraft in August 1940 and by October the squadron became the first to achieve 100 kills. In 1941 they were transferred to Biggin Hill and in 1942 to Duxford, now flying Typhoons and supported the D Day Landings. The tankard features the squadron crest, Kings Crown and moto "Tally Ho"! It also features a GR VI stamp, 43 and capacity mark. Some minor dings but a fabulous souvenir from a Battle of Britain fighter squadron. Measures 5" (12.5 cm)
2738
151 Fighter Squadron Presentation Tankard - Click for the bigger picture Sold151 Fighter Squadron Presentation Tankard - A fine barrel shaped example, engraved "Presented to 151 Fighter Squadron by Lt. D. R. Stanley Adams, R.N. late 151 Squadron Aug. 1936 - Aug. 1938." 151 Squadron was formed in May 1918 and saw service on the Western Front but was disbanded the following year. The squadron was then reformed in 1936 at North Weald, Essex flying Gauntlets and in 1938 was the first squadron to be equipped with Hurricanes and her pilots served with distinction in the Battle of Britain. We assume Stanley Adams was a Fleet Air Arm pilot seconded to the RAF and this tankard was presented to the officers' mess when he returned to the navy. The base is stamped with various hallmarks but we cannot decipher if it is silver. It also carries the number 7112 and 41. In nice original condition. Measures 4" (11 cm).

RAF Tempest Fighter Pilot's Rescue Dinghy Relic Parts - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Tempest Fighter Pilot's Rescue Dinghy Relic Parts - Displayed within a glazed frame, the components are probably from a K-type single seater dinghy issued to fighter pilots. These relics were recovered from the authorised excavation of the crash site of Hawker Tempest JN765 that fell at Winchelsea in Sussex on 1st July, 1945. While being in relic condition, a rubber grab handle is clearly identifiable. Frame measures 18" x 12.5" (46 cm x 31 cm).
4445
RAF Fish Serving Fork - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Fish Serving Fork - Clearly stamped on the handle with a King's Crown, RAF and laurel leaves, while the reverse has the maker's mark and logo Walker Hall. We are unsure of what metal it is made from but it is not hallmarked. It no doubt saw service in an officer's mess and could well date from WWII period. Measures 9" (23 cm)
