RAF Aerial Kite in Original Issue Tin - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Aerial Kite in Original Issue Tin - We have had several of these over the years but this example is definitely the best! The tin carries a very clear label with illustration assembly and launching instructions. Inside everything is as you would expect and exactly as it was when it left the factory about 70 years ago. It comes complete with 33 yards of flying line in the original carton, which is nearly always missing. The kite itself looks as though it has never been removed from the tin or assembled and believe the set to be "mint and boxed". If you want the best, look no further! Measures 21.5" (55 cm)

204 Squadron Presentation Tankard - Click for the bigger picture Sold204 Squadron Presentation Tankard - Engraved to the front to F/O Armitstead 204 Squadron from "Spotter" June '39 - to December '40. 204 Squadron RAF Coastal Command were equipped with Sunderland flying boats in 1939. We have managed to trace F/O John Royds Armitstead service no. 33378 who had been promoted an A/FLt. by 1941 and still serving with 204 Squadron, was awarded a DFC on 25th April, 1941. The tankard is stamped Unity Pewter & English Make. The base has had a slight ding but it makes a fine souvenir with known provenance. Measures 5" (13 cm).

WWI dated Wristlet - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWI dated Wristlet - Featuring a black dial with Roman numerals picked out in gold with a subsidiary second hand. A leather strap is fitted which shows some wear and could well be original to the watch. This is attached by hinged lugs and has an oversized extended brass winder at the 3 o'clock position. This watch has a snap back and is engraved CPL Firth 1917. We are assuming the CPL were the original owner's initials, rather than his rank. Unfortunately we have no provenance with this item, it seems likely it was a gift to Mr. Firth in 1917 and the probability is he served in one of the armed forces. The gilt movement is marked B & C Co. Swiss Made 15 jewels. The condition of the watch is exactly as it came in and appears to be in good running order. It is on offer as a collectable but after 91 years, may benefit from a clean and service, so we will leave this decision to the new owner. Diameter 1.25" (3.5 cm)

LKp S101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLKp S101 Flying Helmet - First introduced in 1938, this is the Summer Luftwaffe flying helmet made from the salt and pepper material as used for the Fliegerkombi. The helmet is in very clean condition and is fitted with a wiring loom and throat microphones, although the receivers and perspex covers have been removed. While originally having provision for a 3 point oxygen mask, the top attachment loop and strap have been removed at some stage. This could well be a field modification if the helmet was only used with a 2 point attachment mask. The silk lining is in good clean condition and carries a maker's label named to Siemens and stamped GR57, so is a small size. Despite the modifications, it makes an excellent display helmet at an entry level price.

Luftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - An example of the Winter pattern with a leather shell and sheepskin lining. Generally in excellent issued condition with all correct snaps and buckles in place, together with provision for attaching a 3 point oxygen mask. It does, however, lack a wiring loom or throat microphones but the attachment point for these is in place, so with the correct spares, could be upgraded to original condition. Inside the label is in place confirming it was made by Hersteller and various other stamps including Gr57.

Luftwaffe Parachute Remnant - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Parachute Remnant - Mounted in a glazed frame is a small section of parachute with a typed label which is attached to a section of partly painted alloy stating 'Part of a German parachute from an enemy crewmember of a Heinkel bomber which crashed on April 28th 1941 after a raid on Portsmouth.' Above the label is a photograph of a Luftwaffe pilot at the controls of his aircraft. Sadly we have no other provenance with this item. Frame measures 12" x 9.5" (31 cm x24 cm).

Luftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - A clean example of the standard winter flying helmet used by the German Air Force in WWII. The leather is in excellent condition as is the lambswool fur lining but the helmet is lacking receivers and wiring loom. The interior carries a manufacturer's label confirming made by Siemens and ink stamped GR58. Good entry level helmet in a decent size.

RAAF Mk IIIA Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAAF Mk IIIA Flying Goggles - An excellent example of these classic goggles which were issued to both RAF, RAAF and RNZAF flight crews in the early part of WWII. These are near unissued condition with nearly all the black paint in place, hinge in good working order and goggle stops and ventilation trumpets just as they should be. The clear perspex lenses exhibit minor scratching but far above average and the black velvet face pads and black leather nose cover are also near perfect. The interior padding has hardened over the years. The back strap features red spring coverings (which helps identify Australian issue goggles) are in good condition with springs intact. The leather section has the correct adjustment buckle but is unmarked although could well have been manufactured by Stokes.

RAF 'Bone Dome' Helmet Testing Kit - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 'Bone Dome' Helmet Testing Kit - A weight set stores reference 4C/3368. All items in fitted hardwood box. This test kit was designed to test the visor brakes on the RAF Mk 2A helmet. A most unusual set for the RAF helmet collector. 13.5 cm x 13.5 cm (5.5" x 5.5")

Tanker Jacket Combat Winter - Click for the bigger picture SoldTanker Jacket Combat Winter - While these jackets were issued in WWII to all branches of the US Army, it was favoured by the US armoured troops and acquired the nickname 'tanker jacket'. It also managed to find its way to the air force where it was favoured by flight crews, particularly on the P-38 Lightning where it was found to be less bulky than the standard Shearling jackets. This example is an extremely good replica and would appear from the label to date to 1994 and is named to Taderley Clothes. It has a Talon zip fitted in good working order. The khaki cotton shell is in excellent shape as are the knits. The interior lining is very clean. The label is marked 'size large' but we would estimate it is good for a 40"-42" chest. A perfect jacket for the collector, re-enactor or for general every day wear.

USAAF A-2 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF A-2 Flying Jacket - A very scarce original WWII issued example. The horse hide leather is in excellent condition and is soft supple with a very nice patina. The waist band is original to the jacket and while it has some minor holes and repairs, it is well above average. The cuff knits are a slightly darker shade of brown and are probably early post war replacements. The original triple marked Talon zip is fitted. There is slight separation to the runner at the base of the zip but seeing it is original, we have decided to leave as it is. The interior fabric lining is in excellent shape with just minor repairs in the collar area. A period patch has also been added and while no label is present, we understand the maker could be Poughaeepsie and would date from around 1942. While the jacket has no sign of a name tag or squadron patch being fitted, the interior lining shows a part of the original owner's name and service number and we are told it was issued to Paul S. Sosovec who was born in 1912 and enlisted in the Army Airforce in Chicago in 1942. This lovely jacket is offered as a collector's item, although we estimate the chest size to be a 40"-42". We would not recommend for regular wear for fear of damaging the zip feed.

RAF Irvin Flying Trousers with 149 Squadron provenance - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Irvin Flying Trousers with 149 Squadron provenance - In RAF parlance, thermally insulated trousers size 4 Irvin with stores ref. 22C/328. These are an excellent original example with an Air Ministry marked label confirming the original owner was called Nunn, service no. 1378662. Sgt Nunn flew with 149 squadron and was lost on a raid on Berlin on 1/2 March 1943. His aircraft Sterling 111 OJ-W was coned by searchlights and then attacked by fighters and Nunn was injured. Hit again by flak crossing the French coast crew members opened his chute before exiting the aircraft but he did not survive and is buried in the Canadian War Cemetery at Dieppe with his skipper F/L Richman and Sgt Croft. The leather is in excellent original condition with both zips functioning well and the trousers come complete with fitted braces. The fur lining is in equally good condition and other than minor damage to the left knee pocket, they are hard to fault.

An excellent selection of parts from an identifiable Battle of Britain crash site. Framed size 23" x 19" (58 cm x 48 cm)

RAF Dinghy Sea Drogue - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Dinghy Sea Drogue - Stores ref. no. 41AA/4, designed to slow the drift of the dinghy by acting as a sea anchor when trailed behind the boat. In virtually mint, unissued condition and complete with coir ropes. Stamped to exterior with letter 'R'. This example is likely to be post war issue but near identical in specification to WWII type.

Royal Flying Corps Mk V Aviation Panel Watch circa 1916 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Flying Corps Mk V Aviation Panel Watch circa 1916 - The black painted dial is marked 30 hour non luminous Mk V and above the subsidiary dial B.E.11072. These watches were fitted with a 15 jewel movement and made by a variety of manufacturers and the code B.E. indicates this example was made by the Swiss firm Doxa. The back of the case is engraved with the RFC property mark of A and below a broad arrow. Slight damage to the black finished dial and minor marks to the crystal glass. The case is in good issued condition. The watch runs intermittently so may benefit from a clean and service, so on offer as a collector's item from the early days off aviation.

MGB Sports Car with RAF connection! - Click for the bigger picture SoldMGB Sports Car with RAF connection! - On offer is the highly desirable 'chrome bumper' version which was first registered 26 March 1974 and has been with the current owner since July 1986. In the last ten years the car has been professionally restored including many new body panels and new interior including leather trim. Due to work commitments the owner has had little opportunity to enjoy her and she has been stored in a dry lock-up garage since 1989, during which time she has covered approximately 200 miles! She has, however, been maintained in roadworthy condition throughout and had her new Ministry of Transport (MOT) issued on 19 June 2009. She is fitted with overdrive, wire wheels and a soft top although a hard top could be available by separate negotiation if required. The car is owned by our neighbour's son and any negotiations would be direct with the owners. She is garaged here in central Somerset (South West England). She is one of the last of the true British sports cars with the additional benefit of having the registration RAF 669M which will appeal to all you RAF collectors!

RAFFC B Type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAFFC B Type Flying Helmet - A fine late example of the classic RAF flying helmet synonymous with the Battle of Britain. The leather is in exceptional condition with original finish and no scuffs or repairs. Receiver housings are fitted with original zips in working order. The Bennett buckles and the leather covering, which is often damaged or missing, are perfect. The helmet is interesting in that the original D oxygen mask snaps have been removed and replaced with appropriate fastenings for the later E* and G masks. The helmet is clearly dated 1941, so this represents a theatre made modification, as by this stage the D was more or less obsolete. The chin strap is mint and complete with the chrome end fitting which is often missing. Inside the lining and doughnuts are excellent with just minor service wear. The helmet, which is a size 2, benefits by having a large woven label which is unusual for such a late production example and is made by G. Waddington & Son Ltd. Written in ink is R.F.Oair and separately RAFFC Dorayl, although this is not 100% clear. In addition, the lining is stamped RAFFC which we believe indicates the helmet was used by Royal Air Force Ferry Command which was formed 15th July, 1941 but was changed to RAF Transport Command in April 1943. All in all, a most interesting variant on the standard B helmet and would sit happily in any specialist collection. RCAF ear foams are included but no receivers or loom.

Trench Art Model of a Fairey Firefly - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Model of a Fairey Firefly - Skillfully fashioned from polished aircraft alloy with nice canopy detail. This is another unusual model subject of a somewhat underated WWII aircraft which served with distinction. Mounted on a steel stand with Firefly engraved on the base. Measures 7.5" (19 cm)

RAF Irvin Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Irvin Flying Jacket - Here we have the impossible dream of the classic RAF Irvin in a size 46" chest! This example has been made under exclusive licence from Irvin GB Ltd. by Aviation Leathercraft. Unfortunately, many of their customers specify their jackets with non standard slash pockets which (in our view) spoil an otherwise excellent garment. The original owner of this example fortunately specified his jacket without the pockets and it looks great. It also benefits from having been nicely broken in and has the sort of vintage patina normally only seen on WWII issue examples but these hardly ever turn up in this size. Everything is as it should be and with the current cold weather is an excellent buy for classic flyers, car enthusiasts or re-enactors. With the ever spiralling costs of WWII examples this is both practical and competitively priced being offered well below the cost of a current production jacket. We have just had it returned from a Daily Mail photo shoot where it was used for a feature on Martin Kemp and his son Roman to tie in with the recent TV programme.
