No. 7 Bomber Squadron Cigarette Box - Click for the bigger picture SoldNo. 7 Bomber Squadron Cigarette Box - Made from Birmingham hallmarked silver dating to 1923. The lid carries an engraving "From the Officers NCO's & Men of B Flight No. 7 Bomber Squadron August 1936". The squadron was formed for the RFC in 1914 and Sqd Ldr Portal was CO for some time (later becoming C in C Bomber Command in 1940). In 1936 B flight converted to Heyford III's and in September moved from the base at Worthy Down to Finningley and this box dates to this time. Some knocks and creases to the silver and repairs to the teak lining but an unusual item named to one of the earliest RFC/RAF squadrons. Later in WWII, equipped with Lancasters, number 7 took part in the Peenemunde Raid and 580 decorations were awarded during the war to the squadron personnel. Measure 3.25" x 3.25" (8 cm x 8 cm)

Bristol Aeroplane Company Test Gauge - Click for the bigger picture SoldBristol Aeroplane Company Test Gauge - The brass scale indicates it was for use on the Hercules, Perseus and Centaurus engines. The instrument is stamped FB101192/2MM and has BAC and a broad arrow crudely engraved below. The Perseus engine was used on the Lysander aircraft, while the Centaurus entered service in 1942 on the Warwick, Tempest and Fury. The Hercules was fitted to the Bristol Freighter which entered service in 1945. The scale indicates 0 - 30 and appears to be some sort of pressure testing instrument, circa 1945. 45 cm (17.5").

RAF 1941 Pattern Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 1941 Pattern Flying Boots - An extremely tidy pair and completely original in every respect. The suede is in immaculate condition and the rubber galosh is well above average as they are prone to cracking and peeling on these boots. The leather ankle straps are in position and original Lightning zips are functioning. The "Itside" soles are original to the boots and show minor service wear. The boots are named to Norton and are marked on the leather tongues 22C-752, which indicates that they are a size 9. The interior fur reflects the quality of the rest of the boots.

RAF Inspectorate of Recruiting Plaque - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Inspectorate of Recruiting Plaque - Manufactured from cast alluminium, it has provision for mounting to a wall on the reverse and was probably used outside the Inspectorate section. The paintwork has been renewed, based on the remains of the original paint and the item is in good condition. It is surmounted by a Queen's Crown, so it is definitely post war. It is a large and imposing item measuring 19" x 15" (48 cm x 38 cm).

Measures 5" high (12 cm), 1 pint capacity.

1941 Pattern Flying Gloves - Click for the bigger picture Sold1941 Pattern Flying Gloves - RAF, Ref. 22C/753 Size 10. Characteristic slanted zips fitted, in good working order. Like most RAF wartime gloves, the left and the right were made by different contractors (to reduce the liklehood of theft), but appear to have been worn as a pair. In excellent service condition.

Trench Art Eagle and Letter Opener - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Eagle and Letter Opener - Manufactured from Plexiglas, almost certainly recovered from crashed aircraft. The eagle is mounted on a hardwood base with detailed carving. This is accompanied by a letter opener made from the same material and embossed on the handle, Tunis 1943. These items were purchased together and were probably fashioned by the same hand. Eagle wing span 6" (15 cm), letter opener 8" (20 cm)

USN M-422A Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSN M-422A Jacket - or maybe an early G-1? The manufacturer's label is still in place but we can not decipher it - either way, this is an early jacket in excellent condition. The lining has been professionally replaced and the badge is a modern replica; the "Vet" understandably wanted to keep his original squadron badge and name tag. Talon zip fitted and, while the jacket shows some service wear, overall it is in excellent shape. Size is marked at 40" (102 cm) but seems to fit bigger. Knitted cuffs and waist band in good condition with USN stenciled behind the mouton collar. A great example of this classic Navy flight jacket.

RAF Trench Art Ashtray - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Trench Art Ashtray - Made from batttlefield brass. Very finely worked with King's Crown, RAF and 'Souvenir of Egypt 1942'. Small but beautifully formed and a reminder of the Desert War 66 years ago. Diameter 4" (10.5 cm)

614 Bomb Squadron Mounted Plaque - Click for the bigger picture Sold614 Bomb Squadron Mounted Plaque - Manufactured in cast brass, featuring a devil's head, horse shoe and falling bomb and with an enamel 8th Airforce plaque above. It is mounted on a pine backboard. Below is a nicely engraved plaque named to 614th Bomb Sqn. 401 St Bomb GP (H). The 8th Airforce B-17's were based at Deenethorpe, England from November '43 to April '45. The reverse of the board carries information on the 401 Bomb Group and the 614 Bomb Squadron. We have no idea of age, but would imagine this has been made up post war. Board measurements are 14" x 11" (36 cm x 28 cm).

RAF Unit Plaques mounted on oak shields. - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Unit Plaques mounted on oak shields. - We have three available, named to Electrical & Wireless School, 30 and 107 Maintenance Units. These are quality plaques manufactured by Hunter & Smallpage Ltd. of York and are cast from metal rather than the more common resin or plaster examples. We bought as a set and presume the original owner served at these establishments. Each measures 9.5" (24 cm) high and 7" (18 cm) wide. While we have priced individually, we would sell the set of three for £30.

WWII Steel Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Steel Helmet - Finished in RAF blue with original paint showing normal service wear. The helmet is fitted with the issue liner stamped 7 and the correct canvas and webbing chin strap which is named to H. Trebble. The outer rim of the helmet has 4 holes punched through it near the chin strap attachment point rivets and we believe this was done after manufacture indicating the helmet did not reach the inspector's quality standards for front line use.

RAF Type 27 Camera Mouting Bracket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Type 27 Camera Mouting Bracket - This is a wonderful example of creative engineering and we like it a lot! It is designed to hold an appropriate camera and by manipulating the various milled wheels, the angle of aim can be very finely adjusted. An engraved brass plaque is riveted to the side of the instrument which is marked with the King's Crown and AM (Air Ministry) and a stores code 14A/1042 and serial no. B37982. The whole device would have been locked onto an appropriate mount and while we have never had one of these before, if you happen to have a suitable RAF camera, this would be the ideal display aid as well as being a wonderful item in its own right.

RAF Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Flying Boots - Post war example, finished in black leather and in excellent issued condion. Marked with a broad arrow, these boots are UK size 8 and are named to A. W. Henry. This pattern dates to the 1950's and they conform to the WWII escape boots with the leg section designed to be cut away converting the boots to conventional shoes if downed over enemy territory. The soles have been repaired but generally an excellent example from the Cold War period.

USAAF B-3 Flying Jacket by H L B Corp - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF B-3 Flying Jacket by H L B Corp - An orginal example with a 1942 contract date and woven label indicating size 36" regular.

Trench Art Plaque named to 50 Bomber Squadron - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Plaque named to 50 Bomber Squadron - Skillfully worked in brushed alluminium with a black mount. The alluminium has been finely engraved and painted with a King's Crown, 50 Squadron Crest and below F/S R. Stansfield, who we imagine was responsible for creating this piece. 50 Squadron was reformed in 1937 flying Hampdens from RAF Waddington and they were responsible for dropping the first bombs in anger in WWII. Minor wear to paint, but generally excellent condition. 10.25" x 8.75" (26 cm x 23 cm)

Air Ministry Hand Bell 1940 - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Hand Bell 1940 - As used on RAF stations throughout WWII. This one comes from my own collection and is a text book example with a good clear King's Crown and AM property mark as well as contract number B 66777-40 and below C22C. The bell is made from brass with a hardwood handle and original clapper and still produces a good clear ring. Measures 10" (25 cm).
