RAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - This item came from the same source as article 4591 and we assume was issued to the same officer, although this example is dated 1975. It comes complete with coir rope and ingfield clips and measures 31" x 22" (79 cm x 56 cm). In excellent flown condition.

USAAF Type A-11 Pilot's Watch by Waltham - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF Type A-11 Pilot's Watch by Waltham - An extremely attractive example of this classic aviator's watch. The perfusely engraved back plate carries the code AF.44-47201, which dates the watch to a 1944 contract. It features a 16 jewel movement with a central sweep second hand and a hacking device which is in good order. The canvas military style strap shows some wear and could be an original item or possibly a later replacement. These watches were also issued to RAF air crew from 1942. The case and crystal are in remarkedly good condition and appears to be in good working order.
1914
Mk IIIA Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldMk IIIA Flying Goggles - A fine example, as issued to allied airmen in WWII. This pair is unusual in that they are Australian manufactured, although the pattern is virtually identical to the RAF examples. Very clear perspex lenses mounted in brass frames and original leather sprung backstrap. These are in the condition every collector aspires to and are hard to fault.
4598
Fleet Air Arm 'C' Type Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFleet Air Arm 'C' Type Helmet - A scarce example in size 4 (the largest offered). The leather is in excellent original condition, as is the interior which just shows normal service wear. All snaps and buckles in place and working. The receiver cup foams are original to the helmet and while somewhat brittle, they help to display the helmet in as used service condition. This helmet is fitted with gosport tubes and looks as though it has never had a wiring loom fitted, so could well have been used in a training role.
4586
RAF Issue Very Pistol - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Issue Very Pistol - Carried in WWII multi-placed dinghy packs, although often carried by fighter pilots tucked into their flying boots. The barrel is numbered 044185 and other than minor damage to the base of the grip, a very crisp display example and getting increasingly hard to find. The pistol has been deactivated so can be owned in the UK without a fire arms certificate and will make an excellent addition to an RAF collection.
4291
Bristol Beaufort Model Aircraft - Click for the bigger picture SoldBristol Beaufort Model Aircraft - This item came from the same source as the B-24 Liberator which we have also just listed and looks as though it was made by the same hand. It is fashioned from brass with static propellers and mounted on a substantial mahogany and brass base. The model is very well executed and it is the first time we have seen a Beaufort which was probably not one of the most glamorous aircraft of WWII. Wing span 7" (18.5 cm)
4602
RAF Mk VIII Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk VIII Flying Goggles - Fitted with dark tinted lenses, broad arrow marked on the nose cover and stores ref. 22C/930 7699. The set comes complete with the original issue box marked with the owner's name Martindale. There is a spare set of clear lenses enclosed together with the demisting tin and cloth dated 1941. Box and spares not shown in the accompanying photograph.
1753
Trench Art Trinket Box - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Trinket Box - Made from a laminated propeller piece with removable top and felt lined interior. Almost certainly dating from first World War. Very nice patina and skillfully executed. Ideal for storing cufflinks or the family jewels! Measured on the base 6.5" (16 cm)
2813
RAF Benevolent Fund Bell - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Benevolent Fund Bell - Cast from alloy salvaged from a shot down Luftwaffe aircraft between 1939-1945 and sold in the early post-war period to raise funds for RAF charities. Features in relief Churchill, Stalin and Roseveldt and with Churchill's victory V to the handle. In excellent original condition complete with clapper. Measures 6" (14 cm)
4439
RAF Ensign - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Ensign - An original version made from various panels rather than the screen printed modern examples. The flag is in flown condition with some old repairs and minor moth damage as well as a little staining but it remains in excellent display condition. It comes complete with coir rope and brass Ingfield clips to attach to the station flag pole. It measures 68" x 35" (180 cm x 90 cm), so an excellent display size for a collection and becoming increasingly hard to find.
4403
Trench Art Propeller Tip Picture Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Propeller Tip Picture Frame - This example came in with item 4402 and looks to have been made by the same hand. This one carries a carved eagle and could possibly represent the Royal Navy Air Service. The propeller is made from laminated mahogany and as it features dowel construction, it is an early propeller almost certainly dating to WWI. The base of the frame has been ornately carved while the reverse features a stand for table display. It simple needs for the new owner to add a photograph or painting to the glazed opening to complete. Measures 13" (33 cm).
3659
RAF Crest and Wings - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Crest and Wings - Cast in brass with the crest surmounted by a King's Crown. This item has the look of a bonnet or radiator mount, but the base has not been threaded for attachment and we presume therefore it was designed as a display or presentation item. Nice original condition, but without maker's marks. Wing span 9.5" (24 cm)
PC101
BOAC Giro Direction Indicator - Click for the bigger picture SoldBOAC Giro Direction Indicator - Manufactured by Sperry and marked on dial serial no. B1143-37, so we are assuming it takes back to 1937. The 0-360 degree scale is operated by a control to the front and interestingly the transfer applied to the top of the case states BOAC Croydon Repair, so it appears was originally fitted to a pre-war airliner. The front of the dial has been repainted and it is sold as a collector's item. Width of dial 4.5" (12 cm)

RAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket - A very original example with the collar hood fully intact and crisp yellow paint to increase visibility for rescue purposes. The jacket is fitted with the original Lightning zips in good working order with the sleeve zips having King's Crown and AM marks. The leather is in generally good condition but with some very neat patch repairs to the right arm. The interior fur retains a strong golden colour, although it has had some attention from the moth as have the cuffs and waistband area. The leather hanging strap is in place and while no label is fitted, the jacket is a small size but would make an excellent display example of this increasingly hard to find variant on the RAF Irvin.

Battle of Britain Officer's Presentation Lamp - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain Officer's Presentation Lamp - This unusual decorative oil lamp is engraved to the front "Presented by Group Captain N. C. Odbert Wyton October 1948. The lamp which is solid silver carries a Birmingham hallmark and is in generally good condition, although it has a small ding to the front. Norman Cyril Odbert joined the RAF in 1927 and in May 1940 took command of 64 Squadron at Kenley flying Spitfires and is recorded as "One of the Few". He survived the war and remained as a regular in the RAF retiring as a Group Captain in 1957. RAF Wyton in Cambridgeshire was a bomber base in WWII and we understand Group Captain Odbert was the CO at this station and perhaps presented the lamp to the officers' mess as a retirement gift. Original items directly relating to B of B pilots very rarely come on the market and it was touch and go if this lamp joined our own modest collection! Length 6" (14 cm).
2681
RAF Ice Bucket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Ice Bucket - Featuring the King's Crown, RAF and laurel leaves to the chromed top with a wooden barrel and ceramic interior. A shield is applied to the front, although this has never been engraved. The chrome finish is a little worn in places with the underlying brass showing through but still makes a great display item and no doubt has seen many a pink gin for the chaps in the officers' mess. Measures 9" (21 cm)
2564
Royal Naval Air Service Trench Art - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Naval Air Service Trench Art - Carved in the form of a sabre with RNAS initials to the grip and a metal albatross applied to the blade. Manufactured from polished hardwood, probably reclaimed from a damaged propeller or wing strut. The Royal Naval Air Service was formed in 1912, but was merged with the Royal Flying Corp in 1918 to form the RAF. A unique souvenir from the early days of military aviation. 31 cm (12").
4402
Propeller Tip Picture Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldPropeller Tip Picture Frame - While we have seen many such examples of Trench Art over the years, this one is in a class of its own. The front of the blade has been hand carved featuring a plant in flower to the tip and a further example to the bottom with a central cut out with scalloped edge to enable a picture to be displayed. The rear is plain and carries a support for table display. The blade appears to be mahogany and is a standard laminated construction. It just requires the new owner to add a suitable photograph or painting to the glazed aperture. Almost certainly dating from WWI period. Measures 13" (34 cm)

RAF GQ Parachute Pack & Harness - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF GQ Parachute Pack & Harness - The pack is nicely labelled confirming type B Mk 19 and RAF Stores ref. 15A/946. This also carries a GQ acceptance stamp and dated 4th October, 1960. The pack also carries a further label marked GQ Parachute Assembly Back Type Mk 26A stores ref. 15A/917. The canopy is enclosed and while we have not been able to inspect it, it looks to be complete. The set also includes a full harness with quick release buckle and D ring release mechanism and cable. Other than the bungees being missing, the set appears complete and would complement an RAF display representing 1960's air crew. On offer as a collector's item and certainly not warranted for its original purpose!
