RAF Dinghy Sea Drogue - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Dinghy Sea Drogue - Stores ref. no. 41AA/4, designed to slow the drift of the dinghy by acting as a sea anchor when trailed behind the boat. In virtually mint, unissued condition and complete with coir ropes. Stamped to exterior with letter 'R'. This example is likely to be post war issue but near identical in specification to WWII type.

Royal Flying Corps Mk V Aviation Panel Watch circa 1916 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Flying Corps Mk V Aviation Panel Watch circa 1916 - The black painted dial is marked 30 hour non luminous Mk V and above the subsidiary dial B.E.11072. These watches were fitted with a 15 jewel movement and made by a variety of manufacturers and the code B.E. indicates this example was made by the Swiss firm Doxa. The back of the case is engraved with the RFC property mark of A and below a broad arrow. Slight damage to the black finished dial and minor marks to the crystal glass. The case is in good issued condition. The watch runs intermittently so may benefit from a clean and service, so on offer as a collector's item from the early days off aviation.

MGB Sports Car with RAF connection! - Click for the bigger picture SoldMGB Sports Car with RAF connection! - On offer is the highly desirable 'chrome bumper' version which was first registered 26 March 1974 and has been with the current owner since July 1986. In the last ten years the car has been professionally restored including many new body panels and new interior including leather trim. Due to work commitments the owner has had little opportunity to enjoy her and she has been stored in a dry lock-up garage since 1989, during which time she has covered approximately 200 miles! She has, however, been maintained in roadworthy condition throughout and had her new Ministry of Transport (MOT) issued on 19 June 2009. She is fitted with overdrive, wire wheels and a soft top although a hard top could be available by separate negotiation if required. The car is owned by our neighbour's son and any negotiations would be direct with the owners. She is garaged here in central Somerset (South West England). She is one of the last of the true British sports cars with the additional benefit of having the registration RAF 669M which will appeal to all you RAF collectors!

RAFFC B Type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAFFC B Type Flying Helmet - A fine late example of the classic RAF flying helmet synonymous with the Battle of Britain. The leather is in exceptional condition with original finish and no scuffs or repairs. Receiver housings are fitted with original zips in working order. The Bennett buckles and the leather covering, which is often damaged or missing, are perfect. The helmet is interesting in that the original D oxygen mask snaps have been removed and replaced with appropriate fastenings for the later E* and G masks. The helmet is clearly dated 1941, so this represents a theatre made modification, as by this stage the D was more or less obsolete. The chin strap is mint and complete with the chrome end fitting which is often missing. Inside the lining and doughnuts are excellent with just minor service wear. The helmet, which is a size 2, benefits by having a large woven label which is unusual for such a late production example and is made by G. Waddington & Son Ltd. Written in ink is R.F.Oair and separately RAFFC Dorayl, although this is not 100% clear. In addition, the lining is stamped RAFFC which we believe indicates the helmet was used by Royal Air Force Ferry Command which was formed 15th July, 1941 but was changed to RAF Transport Command in April 1943. All in all, a most interesting variant on the standard B helmet and would sit happily in any specialist collection. RCAF ear foams are included but no receivers or loom.

Trench Art Model of a Fairey Firefly - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Model of a Fairey Firefly - Skillfully fashioned from polished aircraft alloy with nice canopy detail. This is another unusual model subject of a somewhat underated WWII aircraft which served with distinction. Mounted on a steel stand with Firefly engraved on the base. Measures 7.5" (19 cm)

RAF Irvin Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Irvin Flying Jacket - Here we have the impossible dream of the classic RAF Irvin in a size 46" chest! This example has been made under exclusive licence from Irvin GB Ltd. by Aviation Leathercraft. Unfortunately, many of their customers specify their jackets with non standard slash pockets which (in our view) spoil an otherwise excellent garment. The original owner of this example fortunately specified his jacket without the pockets and it looks great. It also benefits from having been nicely broken in and has the sort of vintage patina normally only seen on WWII issue examples but these hardly ever turn up in this size. Everything is as it should be and with the current cold weather is an excellent buy for classic flyers, car enthusiasts or re-enactors. With the ever spiralling costs of WWII examples this is both practical and competitively priced being offered well below the cost of a current production jacket. We have just had it returned from a Daily Mail photo shoot where it was used for a feature on Martin Kemp and his son Roman to tie in with the recent TV programme.

Electrically Wired Sidcot Suit - Click for the bigger picture SoldElectrically Wired Sidcot Suit - RAF issue 1941 pattern, stores Ref. 22C/777 Size 5. The fabric of the suit is in very good condition with original AM Lightning zips fitted in working order although one ankle zip is lacking some teeth. To fit height 5'10"-5'11" (178-180 cm), chest size 38"-40" (97-102 cm), but fits bigger.
4592
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.

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)

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.

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)
