Luftwaffe Parachute Quick Release Buckle - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Parachute Quick Release Buckle - A fine example of the war time pattern as used on WWII seat and chest parachutes. It is clearly stamped to the front as shown in the pictures and the back is stamped SA Scholss and manufactured by DR.Gettwart Berlin. Also stamped is FL 30232. What makes this example unusual is the parachute webbing attachment clips are still present and each is stamped FL.30232-1. Unlike many we see, this is not in relic condition and is in full working order. It would make a fine addition to a Luftwaffe collection or to assist in rebuilding a complete parachute assembly.

1936 Pattern Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture Sold1936 Pattern Flying Boots - This pair is RNZAF issue and are based upon the standard RAF 1936 pattern. They feature a black chrome leather upper with fleece lining and a leather tightening strap and buckle across the "V" shaped front opening. This variant does not have the internal leather pulls associated with the RAF boot. The top of the left leg is embossed NZ40 3246. This appears to be the RNZAF issue number, although it could be the owner's service number. The boots show some service use with mothing to the internal fur and they have been resoled at some stage. We cannot see a size marked, but they appear to be about a UK 8, Continental 42, US 8 1/2.

WWII 'B' Type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII 'B' Type Flying Helmet - An original 'B' type helmet of an unusual specification. A near identical example is shown on page 230 of Mick Prodger's book of vintage Flying Helmets and is listed as South African Airforce. It is constructed of pigskin with receiver cups fitted and zips in working order. On the downside, the rear adjustment strap has been removed and the leather shell is showing heavy wear. The interior has doughnuts fitted and is clean. Snaps for a 'D' type oxygen mask are fitted. The helmet is not wired, but we have added receivers foams for display purposes. Not the best example, but a rare helmet to add to your 'B' type collection.

It covers an absolute wealth of information, including Arrest and Custody Procedures, Digging Latrines and Forced Landings on the Sea!

RAF WWII Dinghy Survival Balloon M-278-A - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF WWII Dinghy Survival Balloon M-278-A - In original sealed issue tin. This balloon was designed to loft the aerial wire of the SCR-578 radio transmitter (Gibson Girl) and had the advantage over the aerial kite as it could be operated in still weather conditions. The outside of the tin carries full operating instructions and illustrations as to how it should be inflated via a hydrogen generator. We can't guarantee the condition of the balloon, although the tin is sealed and has never been used. An invaluable piece of kit for airmen downed over water.

A-2 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldA-2 Flying Jacket - Manufactured by the Cooper Defense Contract Division for the USAF. Coopers obtained a contract in 1988 to supply a total of 53, 000 units and we understand this most famous WWII pattern also served with distinction during the first Gulf War. This example has been my personal jacket and was purchased new in 1992. It is in excellent condition and is only for sale as it is now a fraction small! It is sized at 42R (107 cm). No faults and a very wearable A-2, at a time when wartime examples are just too valuable to use on a regular basis.
