Nitsche & Gunther Splitterschutzbrille Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldNitsche & Gunther Splitterschutzbrille Flying Goggles - Designed by the Luftwaffe medical expert Dr Knothe to provide eye protection to aircrew and reduce the chances of injury from splinter damage caused by shrapnel. This was achieved by the curvature of the lenses. This is a late war example, introduced into service in 1944 with the frame being moulded in three sections with a hinged bridge over the nose. The inside of the is embossed 'Nigura.' This stands for Nitsche & G√ľnther, Rathenow, the town in Germany where the goggles were manufactured. The silken finish elastic back strap is in good shape with minor rust to the buckle and the set comes complete with issue tin, which shows minor age wear and Luftwaffe stores code Fl 30550. While some good copies of these goggles manufactured in Czechoslovakia are available on the market we have checked these in detail and believe them to be an original issue item. However please feel free to ask for more detailed pictures prior to purchasing to check out the detail and don't just take our word for it!

Luftwaffe Model LKpN101 Netzkopfhaube Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Model LKpN101 Netzkopfhaube Flying Helmet - A near text book example of the classic mesh flying helmet which has become synonymous with Luftwaffe fighter pilots in WWII. This example has a manufacturers label coded hdc indicating it was made by Luftwahrtgeratewerk Hakenfelde, Berlin-Spandau. The size stamp is not clear but it is a large example and would correspond to an RAF size 4 so possibly a 58 or 59 European size. The helmet is near perfect inside and out, featuring tan leather receiver cups and provision for the Luftwaffe three point oxygen mask. The helmet is fully wired with receivers and throat microphones and also carries the short communication cord favoured by fighter pilots. The netting is also faultless and we would say impossible to find a crisper example and fully satisfies the collectors criteria 'always buy the best you can afford'. Please note the oxygen mask and splinter goggles illustrated are for display purposes only and this sale is for the helmet alone although both items are available and are being listed separately.
Blue Angels Blast Off Tie - Click for the bigger picture SoldBlue Angels Blast Off Tie - An impressive item featuring four US Navy blue angels display aircraft with a blue angels shield badge below named to Navy Air Training Command. The tie has a maker's label Ralph Marlin. The tie is dated 1997.
Luftwaffe Fliegerbrille Flying Goggles DR352 - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Fliegerbrille Flying Goggles DR352 - A near text book example in original issue box indicating manufactured by Phillipp M. Winter werk no. 1597. The goggles are fitted with clear lenses and the nose bridge is dated (19)42. The back strap is in near perfect condition and a spare set of tinted lenses in cloth pouches marked umbral 75% complete the set. The issue box shows some age wear but otherwise would be hard to improve upon.
RAF Thermos Flask - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Thermos Flask - An essential item for unheated RAF Bomber Aircraft crews and used by aircrew for hot drinks and soup during long flights. This example is broad arrow marked and dated 1943. It is identical to the example illustrated on page 125 of Mick Prodger's RAF equipment book but in far better condition! Instructions very clear and complete with cap, cork and glass liner.
RAF Spectacles Flying Type G - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Spectacles Flying Type G - Broad Arrow marked with stores ref. no. 22G/1398 and further marked 840. This example is post war issue although very similar in design to the wartime pattern. In excellent issued condition but lacking case.
Luftwaffe Grey Leather Flight Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Grey Leather Flight Jacket - National flag and rank bars to sleeves. Badge to right breast Tornedo MBB Service Instructor Training and a further patch to sleeve marked MFG1. Orange fabric high visibility interior lining. Knits all is good condition. The jacket is dated 5/1987 and size is marked at 9. We estimate this would fit chest size 40-42" (102-107 cm)
Airspeed Oxford Propeller Tip & Data Plate - Click for the bigger picture SoldAirspeed Oxford Propeller Tip & Data Plate - These items originated from an RAF propeller circa 1940 which was powered by a Cheetah X engine with left hand rotation. The brass plaque has been removed from the hub and both items carry original RAF paint. Sadly we have no provenance of the aircraft from which they were removed. 7" (18 cm)
RAF Panel Watch Holder - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Panel Watch Holder - Dating from WWII, this simply clip device could be attached on the aircraft's instrument panel or front of the navigator or bomb aimer's position to attach a stopwatch for timing bomb runs, etc. The plastic back is drilled for bolts and the watch case is protected by a felt pad. It is becoming increasingly hard to find. Diameter 2" (5 cm)
WWII Fighter Aircraft Radio Antenna Mast - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Fighter Aircraft Radio Antenna Mast - The design and dimensions seem to conform to that used on the P51 Mustang, although without any data information we cannot be certain of the aircraft it came from. Finished in natural timber, in service it would have had a metal sheath cover. Evidence of earthing strips near base. Generally very good condition. Measures 31" (94 cm)
Air Ministry Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - The instrument is engraved 6A/1246 with King's Crown and AM stamp. These compasses were used to take bearings from the aircraft in circumstances when the fixed type of observer's compass could not be used. The handle has an internal space for a dry cell battery for illumination of the compass card. Some compass oil has evaporated and the compass card does not currently swing, although would be possible to top up oil but on offer as a display item only. Complete with original transit box with dates stamps to lid indicating 1939, 1940 and 1945. Measures 9.5" (24 cm)
RAF Button Bar - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Button Bar - used to protect uniforms from Brasso when cleaning brass buttons. Stamped with King's Crown, A.M. and dated 1940. A small but essential piece of an RAF Airmans's kit that could well have served through the Battle of Britain! Measures 7" (17 cm)
Luftwaffe Aircraft Seat Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Aircraft Seat Frame - This item is reported to have been recovered from Lubek in 1945 and brought back to the UK as a souvenir. It was then re-upholstered and used for many years by the owner's children in their playroom which was the condition in which we purchased it. When the cover was removed we found a paper label reading German Jet Komet Pilot's Seat Lubek 1945. We also discovered under the paint an original data plate which is somewhat faded but appears to be stamped RGS145 and below 27-H-1970 and 5783-14, although this is not entirely clear. The chair features four rubber pads carrying ink stamps which are difficult to decipher but could possibly idicate a flight school. The frame which appears to be aluminium alloy is finished in original black paint. If any visitors can give us a positive ID, we would be happy to add that to our description, but in the meantime it remains a mystery item but no doubt with a story to tell! Measures 15" wide by 16" deep and 20" high (38 cm x 42 cm x 53 cm).
Wing Commander Guy Gibson D.F.C. Flying Log book No2 - Click for the bigger picture SoldWing Commander Guy Gibson D.F.C. Flying Log book No2 - This exacting facsimile was copied from the original held in the Public Records Office, London and published in 1976. The print run has long since sold out, copies very rarely appear on the market and it has become a collectors' item in its own right. The detail and authenticity is amazing with the first and last pages stuck together, as in the original. On 16 May 1943 Gibson records "Led attack on Mohne and Eder Dams. Successful." On the following page he records "Awarded V.C. 23.05.43." The final entry is written on September 16 1944. Just three days later Gibson piloted a Mosquito, acting as Master Bomber, on a raid to Rheydt. He crashed on his return at Steenbergen, Holland in mysterious circumstances with recent reports indicating this may have been the result of a "friendly fire" incident with a Lancaster rear gunner mistaking the Mosquito for a JU 88. With the continued interest in 617 Squadron and with the remake of the Dam Busters film, these replicas can only appreciate so grab a copy while you can! This example has minor foxing to the cover (which actually adds to the authentic look of the log! but otherwise in near perfect condition inside. Please also see other 617 Sqd related items we have just listed.
Silk Escape Map - Click for the bigger picture SoldSilk Escape Map - WWII, in full colour covering sheets 44E & F. Double sided detailing part of Siam, Malaya and Sumatra. 36" x 24.5" (91 cm x 62 cm).
RAAF Flying Suit NSN 8415 66 144 3908 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAAF Flying Suit NSN 8415 66 144 3908 - Fully badged, named to Mick Stone and complete with RAAF Pilot's Brevet. Rank bars attached to shoulder epaulettes together with an Australian flag. A fine woven 75 squadron is attached to the right chest. 75 were based at Tindal in the Northern Territories, being formed in WWII and served in Iraq in 2003 flying F/A Hornets. This suit is sized 105L and is dated 2005. In excellent issued condition.
Spitfire Skin Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldSpitfire Skin Relic - A framed and glazed section of metal taken from original Spitfire aircraft during restoration. This is embossed Supermarine Works, Vickers, Southampton and with Spitfire type code 300 and is also stamped Eastleigh and K5054 - the serial number of the prototype Spitfire. We do not know the actual airframe this relic came from (certainly not K5054! but still a very attractive display item. Frame measures 9.5" x 7.5" (24 cm x 20 cm)
617 Dambusters Squadron Napkin Ring - Click for the bigger picture Sold617 Dambusters Squadron Napkin Ring - If only this could talk! We purchased locally in S.W. England and it is an original ring probably from the officers' mess at RAF Scampton. It is fun to speculate that it could possibly have been used by one of the crews on operation Chastise. The ring is engraved 617 Squadron to the front and 4 on the reverse, which we assume was the owner's ID mark. The item exhibits some wear to the chrome plate with the brass beneath showing through. No maker's marks or date but looking at the wear, it could well be from the early days of 617 which was formed on 21 March, 1943. This one is for the serious Dambusters/617 collector. Grab this piece of history while you can! Please see other Dambuster related items which we have just listed.
French Airforce Gueneau & Cie Hard Shell Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFrench Airforce Gueneau & Cie Hard Shell Flying Helmet - These are becoming very scarce and this is an excellent original example of the type. The design is reminiscent of the WWI Roold helmet but despite its looks it remained an issue item into WWII. Features a dark brown leather covered hard shell with soft leather lined ear flaps designed to hold radio receivers. Inside the original E.Gueneau, Paris label and confirms the pattern as as 'Casque Airele' (Airele 11 type) and dated October 1939 so could well have swerved before the fall of France in 1940. It also has an ink acceptance stamp which we understand to be similar to the RAF AID embossing. When France was overrun escaping flyers formed Free French units with he RAF and the days of the Gueneau were over with the FF pilots being issued with RAF kit although a few of them were treasured by crew members & fitted with RAF G masks, especially in bombing squadrons (Lorraine, Tunisie, Guyenne).Our helmet is probably one of the last produced before the Vichy and postwar types 14, 15 and 18 and scarce to find in this condition. Size is marked at 58 (medium).
