Trench Art Picture Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Picture Frame - Manufactured from an original mahogany propeller tip with brass leading edge and with a cut out frame to the centre, complete with a black and white photograph of an aviator. He appears to be wearing Luxor goggles, so would seem to date from the 1930's, although this pattern was popular up until the Battle of Britain. The perspex picture cover is somewhat opaque, but this gives the item a period feel. It would easily be replaced in required. Mounted on a wooden base, this is a very aesthetically pleasing item and the picture would easily be changed to feature the aviator in your life! Measures 8" (20 cm) high including base.

Ladies' 'CC41' Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldLadies' 'CC41' Flying Boots - We have been unable to reference these boots, but they are very similar in design to the RAF 1936 pattern and feature a black polished leather upper with a suede leg and leather strap fastening. From studying contemporary photographs, we believe these may have been used by female pilots in the Air Transport Auxillary (ATA), who played an important part in WWII delivering all manner of aircraft from the manufacturers to the operational stations. Sewn into the fleece lining is a government standard stamp "CC41", together with reference B/M1 8 A52. The boots exhibit some service wear and the original leather soles appear to have been repaired, but a nice display example of an extremely rare flying boot. They are about a size 7, Continental 41, US 7 1/2.

WWII Tissue Paper Escape Map Sheet C - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Tissue Paper Escape Map Sheet C - A single sided example printed in colour covering Northern France, Belgium and Holland. Interestingly, only a fraction of England is shown - a wartime precaution in case the map should be captured and used by the enemy for his own purposes! An identical example is featured on page 102 of Mick Prodger's excellent Luftwaffe v. RAF Flight Equipment book. 21" x 16" (53 cm x 41 cm)

RAF Brogue Waders - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Brogue Waders - An incredibly rare pair of ankle boots made of leather and canvas with hob nail leather soles, which were issued to men of the RAF for use when wading into the water to bring sea planes to moorings or the shore. The holes in the sides of the canvas uppers were designed to allow the boots to empty when the wearer left the water! The only other pair we have ever seen are in our own collection (not for sale! and neither have we found an illustration in any of the specialist collectors' books. We will supply with this pair a scan of the original Air Ministry specificaiton sheet number 729/NA/1, which is dated 1942 and was issued to the contractor. This pair is in UK size 12, Continental 47, US 12 1/2, and other than slight scuffing, appear to be in unissued condition. Grab yourself a piece of RAF wartime history while you can, as we are unlikely ever to turn up another pair.

Model Spitfire and Hurricane - Click for the bigger picture SoldModel Spitfire and Hurricane - A fine example of trench art with each fighter fashioned out of aircraft alloy and mounted on a turned pine base. A most unusual pair with the Spitfire dominating and the smaller Hurricane sweeping below its port wing. Spitfire wing span 6" (15 cm).
3842
Double Sided Escape Compass - Click for the bigger picture SoldDouble Sided Escape Compass - An unusual pattern with glass viewing panels top and bottom. The card is marked with 8 compass directions and features blue writing on one side and red on the other. This is the first example like this we have seen and looking at the built quality, could well date to the 1930's. In excellent original working condition. 0.5" (1.3 cm.)

Stalag Luft III Commemorative Jug - Click for the bigger picture SoldStalag Luft III Commemorative Jug - Manufactured in Cincinnati, Ohio and made from hand crafted crystal. Edged to front is a USAAF Pilot's clipped wing (symbolising POW's can't fly) and below Stalag Luft III and dated 1945-1980. Below the lip is etched KEIN TRINK WASSER (not for drinking water! . We assume the jug was issued on the 35th anniversary of the liberation of the prisoners from the camp which was situated at Sagan in Poland. Fine condition. 20 cm.

Nitsche & Gunther Splitterschutzbrille flying goggles case - Click for the bigger picture SoldNitsche & Gunther Splitterschutzbrille flying goggles case - Sadly we do not have the splinter goggles it once contained, but this would make an excellent addition if you own a set without the case. It would also make an interesting display item in its own right. Retaining around 70% of the original olive drab paint, the front is embossed Behatter Fur Flieger-Splitterschutzbrillen Mit Ultrasin-Glasern A Nr.30550. This case would be for the 2nd pattern goggles with the hinged nose piece. 7" (18 cm)

WWII Escape Map Series S2/S3 - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Escape Map Series S2/S3 - A double sided example covering parts of Greece, Turkey, Italy and the Balkans. Looks to have been printed circa the end of 1940. Some staining and what appears to be small burn holes, but it still displays well and no doubt it has a story to tell! 24" x 20" (61 cm x 51 cm)
1748
Aircraft Propeller Blade - Click for the bigger picture SoldAircraft Propeller Blade - A single blade, manufactured from laminated hardwood and original painted canvas covered tip. The blade has a near perfect transfer showing it was manufactured by the Integral Propeller Company Ltd. and British make. This propeller has been mounted on a more recent oak base. It stands at 43" (110 cm), so is an excellent size for display purposes. Unfortunately, we have no provenance with it, but it appears to date from the early 20th century. Generally excellent condition with minor service wear.
PC60
RAF H type Oxygen Mask - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF H type Oxygen Mask - Introduced into RAF service in 1944, it remained an issue item up until the 1980's. This example features the later small microphone and was manufactured in January, 1975. The rubber is generally sound with minor surface cracking around the exhaust outlet and some service wear to the inner leather face pad. It is complete with appropriate harness snaps and clips to fit the RAF or FAA C type flying helmet.

Luftwaffe Winter Flying Jacket for flight over land - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Winter Flying Jacket for flight over land - Manufactured in blue/grey cloth with fur lining and a dark brown collar. This jacket would appear to be late war production with button closure, rather than the snaps which we would normally expect to see on this pattern. The sleeve zips are brass and manufactured by Zipp, while the main zip is a late war economy plastic zip by Ri-Ri. This jacket has seen heavy useage and as well as service grime, the right arm has had extensive repairs, but these do not detract and makes an extremely good display example. The interior fur lining is generally sound, while there is some moulting to the fur collar. It is a good size being about a 42" chest (107 cm). Whilst we have seen better examples, original Luftwaffe WWII flight jackets are getting hard to find and this is a good honest example.

RAF S.Y.C Ashtray - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF S.Y.C Ashtray - Made of brass with an enamel burgee to front featuring an RAF roundel against an orange background, engraved below RAF S.Y.C. It measures 8 cm (3")
3362
RAF Half Pint Tankard - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Half Pint Tankard - A fine example engraved with an RAF crest to the front, surmounted by a King's Crown and whilst not dated, almost certainly of the WWII period. The base is stamped 25 Half Pint 10149 W. It is not hallmarked, so we imagine it is made from nickel silver. 3.75" (9 cm)
3573
Luftwaffe Service Wrist Watch - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Service Wrist Watch - This example is marked BWC to the dial and features roman numerals and a small subsidiary second hand dial. The screw back is marked ROSTFREI STAHIRODEN WASSERDICHT and numbered D11320. The chrome finish to the case shows some wear, but is in generally good condition and is running well. The watch glass and winder may be replacements. We have fitted a correct specification reproduction leather strap. This watch would probably have been issued to and used by ground personnel.
