RAF B type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF B type Flying Helmet - Fitted with original label indicating manufactured by Frank Bryan with stores ref. no. 22C/65. This example is a size 2 and also carries the desirable 1940 Battle of Britain date. The leather shell is in generally good issued condition with just minor flaking to the surface. Both Bennett buckles are complete but lacking the leather outer covers. Excellent chin strap with chrome end still in place. Receiver cups and housings are in place with functioning zips and feint AM stamps to the leather. Good RCAF issue foams are fitted in the receiver housings but lacking receivers. Inside the lining is sound but grubby. The helmet is named J. A. Wood. We have no specific provenance but have found a Fl. Lt. John Alexander Wood who flew with 76 squadron, so he could possibly be our man. This is a nice display example of the most desirable of the wartime RAF flying helmets as used throughout the Battle of Britain. This item would display well with the RAF goggles which we have listed.

Some service wear but overall good condition.

RAF Aircraft Tail Wheel and Tyre - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Aircraft Tail Wheel and Tyre - Reputed to be ex-Spitfire but we can't find any identification codes on the hub to prove or disprove. The tyre, however, is clearly stamped with a King's Crown and AM, so definitely from a WWII period aircraft and judging by the size, would look to be from a fighter. The tyre has various other stamps on it including WJ14, Static Conducting, WT, 4908, LO204E 188 and the tyre size is detailed at 4.0-3.5. The tread area of the tyre is also stamped in yellow ink WJ14. It appears to be unused and is still inflated. Measures 10" (26 cm) diameter. For sale as a collector's item or to fit on a static airframe display.

USAAF A-9 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF A-9 Flying Helmet - A good original example in olive drab canvas but does not ever appear to have had receivers fitted. The helmet incorporates various clips and snaps for goggle and oxygen mask attachment and the leather chin strap is fitted with a sheepskin cover. Inside is a manufacturing label confirming the helmet is a type A-9, together with a 1942 contract date. It also features a further webbing label stamped AF-13 and another size label marked Large, although we would rate the helmet not bigger than medium. A nice original WWII helmet at an entry level price.

Rolls Royce Merlin Engine Piston and Con Rod - Click for the bigger picture SoldRolls Royce Merlin Engine Piston and Con Rod - Perhaps the ultimate souvenir from the famous Merlin that powered the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster in WWII. We suspect, looking at the condition, this one has never been used, although we have been advised it was probably for a Merlin XX engine. It is complete with fitted piston rings and believe this example would be hard to better. Diameter of piston 5.5" (13.5 cm).

Hawker Siddley Aviation Ltd. - Click for the bigger picture SoldHawker Siddley Aviation Ltd. - A perspex signboard with recessed lettering. Hawker Siddley Aviation was formed in 1948 while Hawker Siddley Aircraft Company originated in 1935 and were responsible for aircraft such as the Sea Vixen, Hunter and the classic Trident airliner. Hawker Siddley were merged with British Aerospace in 1977. We have no provenance with this item but assume it was used in one of its factories or possibly on an HS exhibition trade stand. Measures 47" (119 cm)

RAF Mk III Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk III Flying Goggles - Most examples of these we see are RCAF issue but this pair are a scarce Air Ministry marked goggle, dating to 1935. The back strap features clear AM and King's Crown embossing, together with the stores ref. no. 22C/69. The brass frames are good with most of the original paint in place. The perspex lenses are excellent as is the leather face mask and velvet sections. The canvas spring covers are good but the springs are showing some distortion, although mounted with a display helmet, they look fine. The bridge stops and vents are all perfect. A rare example of pre war and Battle of Britain period flying goggles. They would display well with the RAF B type helmet we are also listing.

RAF 1940 dated Kit Bag - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 1940 dated Kit Bag - Originally issued to Higbey whose service no. was 1198025. Sadly we have no history on his service career but he has clearly written his name on the side of the bag and on the top flap cover. The bag carries a good clear AM stamp, King's Crown and the emotive 1940 manufacturing date. We checked to see if, by chance, Higbey was one of the "Few" but sadly this is not the case. Minor service wear but overall in exceptional condition and would be perfect for a period aviation display or for re-enactment purposes. Complete with closure rope and the brass eyelets are in perfect condition.
4829
Supermarine Spitfire Crash Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldSupermarine Spitfire Crash Relic - We don't have any history with this one other than we were told it was recovered from a Spitfire crash site. The part appears to be from the carburetter system and has numerous numbers on the case together with traces of black paint and evidence of impact damage. Measures 6" long (15 cm)

RAF Trench Art Cigarette Lighter - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Trench Art Cigarette Lighter - Manufactured from an inert Hispanol 20mm cannon shell mounted on a base cut from a 40mm Bofurs Gun shell case which is dated 1938. The shell head is removable revealing the lighter section and while the striker wheel does create a spark, we have not tested the item and it is therefore for sale for decorative purposes only. Measures 9" (23 cm)
4837
RAF Height and Air Speed Computer Mk I - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Height and Air Speed Computer Mk I - This is fare scarcer than the more commonly found Ican flight computer. This example is in excellent original condition and marked 6B/108 with a serial number dating it to 1940. It also carries AM and King's Crown stamps and manufactured by the London Name Plate Mfg Co. Ltd of London and Brighton. A similar example is shown in Prodger's RAF Flight Equipment book page 113 but ours is the earlier Mk I version. Diameter 6" (15 cm)

RFC Pattern 256 Aviation Compass - Click for the bigger picture SoldRFC Pattern 256 Aviation Compass - A very scarce example from the early days of aviation. This instrument is marked on the dial C.O. Aerocompass indicating it was designed by Captain F. O. Creagh-Osbourne, who was Superintendent of compasses at the Admiralty who produced the first aircraft compass in 1909. In addition to pattern 256 it is also marked with the number 646. The brass "diver's helmet" bowl contains a coloured 0-360 compass ring fitted on a jewelled pivot. When aircraft mounted the compass would have been suspended on a circular sprung mount while this item is display mounted on a mahogany board. The compass card is suspended in oil which contains a small air bubble. Measures 9" high (23 cm)

Single Barrel Leuchtpistole - Click for the bigger picture SoldSingle Barrel Leuchtpistole - The classic type carried by Luftwaffe single seat fighter pilots and many bomber crews both during the Battle of Britain and subsequently. This example is made by Erma-Erfurt and carries the classic date 1940. While we have no provenance with it, it is likely to have served in the Summer of 1940 and during the Battle of Britain. Excellent grips, lanyard ring and metalwork. The flare pistol comes with a deactivation certificate and can be legally owned in the UK without the need of a fire arms certificate.

USAAF Roughwear B-3 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF Roughwear B-3 Flying Jacket - A classic original WWII flight jacket by perhaps the most famous contractor. This example features the classic veg tanned redskin contrast leather and the label confirms the contract no. 42-511D, dating it to 1942. The size is marked as a 40 regular. The zip is a correct specification Talon replacement. Despite the stunning look of this jacket, it has had extensive repairs and while it will make a perfect example in a collection, it is certainly not strong enough to wear. B-3's are getting increasingly hard to find in any condition.
