Luftwaffe Winter Flying Jacket for flight over land - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Winter Flying Jacket for flight over land - Manufactured in blue/grey cloth with fur lining and a dark brown collar. This jacket would appear to be late war production with button closure, rather than the snaps which we would normally expect to see on this pattern. The sleeve zips are brass and manufactured by Zipp, while the main zip is a late war economy plastic zip by Ri-Ri. This jacket has seen heavy useage and as well as service grime, the right arm has had extensive repairs, but these do not detract and makes an extremely good display example. The interior fur lining is generally sound, while there is some moulting to the fur collar. It is a good size being about a 42" chest (107 cm). Whilst we have seen better examples, original Luftwaffe WWII flight jackets are getting hard to find and this is a good honest example.

RAF Half Pint Tankard - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Half Pint Tankard - A fine example engraved with an RAF crest to the front, surmounted by a King's Crown and whilst not dated, almost certainly of the WWII period. The base is stamped 25 Half Pint 10149 W. It is not hallmarked, so we imagine it is made from nickel silver. 3.75" (9 cm)

Luftwaffe Service Wrist Watch - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Service Wrist Watch - This example is marked BWC to the dial and features roman numerals and a small subsidiary second hand dial. The screw back is marked ROSTFREI STAHIRODEN WASSERDICHT and numbered D11320. The chrome finish to the case shows some wear, but is in generally good condition and is running well. The watch glass and winder may be replacements. We have fitted a correct specification reproduction leather strap. This watch would probably have been issued to and used by ground personnel.

PC55
Luftwaffe Emergency Seenotflagge - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Emergency Seenotflagge - This example was recovered from a crash site and is in semi relic condition with some corrosion. The extending tubes are locked and the leather handle absent, but this increasingly rare item would still display well in the pocket of your channel trousers. An invaluable aid to downed Luftwaffe airmen when the appropriate flag is attached for attracting the attention of possible rescuers. It measures 32 cm (12.5")
3035
RAF Crest in Period Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Crest in Period Frame - Hand embroidered with crest and motto "Per Ardua Ad Astra" which translated reads "through struggles to the stars". The crest is surmounted by a King's crown and probably dates to WWII, perhaps worked by a mother, wife or girlfriend of a serving member of the RAF. The colours are still bright with no sign of moth damage. 27 cm x 22 cm (10.5" X 8.5").

RAF Flying Chart for South East England - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Flying Chart for South East England - Marked RAF edition (War) and dated 1941. Named to Sgt. Driscoll who we understand was based at North Weald in Essex. Airfields such as Biggin Hill, Hornchurch, Hawkinge and Tangmere are all marked. In addition, areas of danger such as air gunnery and bombing ranges, balloon flying and AA gun positions are indicated for the safety of allied aircrew. The chart shows evidence of service wear and it may have some stage have been wall or board mounted. Despite the less than perfect condition, this is a sought after chart in view of the area covered.

RAF Pilot's Brevet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Pilot's Brevet - A flat type with embroidered wings with evidence of original stitching.

3841
Miniature RAF Pilot's Brevet - Click for the bigger picture SoldMiniature RAF Pilot's Brevet - This example was worn by overseas RAF personnel. It purports to have been issued to Eagle Squadron Pilot 1st Lt. John F. Lutz of 334 Fighter Squadron. After the United States entered the war and the Eagle Squadron members returned to the USAAF, pilots would wear this wing on the right side of their tunic, while wearing the US wing on the left side as evidence of their previous service with the RAF. This example is in near perfect condition. 3" (7.5 cm.)
3839
Eagle Squadron Sleeve Insignia - Click for the bigger picture SoldEagle Squadron Sleeve Insignia - An embroidered cloth patch featuring an eagle with outstretched wings with the letters E.S. to the top. This item is understood to have belonged to 1st Lt. John F. Lutz of 334 Fighter Squadron who piloted a P-47C and was killed in action on 4th May, 1943. While we have nothing to substantiate this provenance, the item came from a small private collection we purchased and we believe the information to be correct. 3" x 2.75" (8 cm x 7.5 cm).

Marked ADI (Maps) Air Ministry no. 7331. Tissue maps, while sometimes issued to operational air crew, were also smuggled into POW camps from non existent relatives to aid possible escape plans.

PC58
Fleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - This is the second pattern introduced into service in 1944. It is fully wired with excellent loom, fitted receivers, as well as Gosport Tube housings which were a unique feature of this helmet and explains the need for zipped receiver cups. All snaps and straps in place and working. The leather is generally sound, but has signs of repair to brow and front seams. This does not detract from the helmet and it displays very well. No apparent size marked, but it is small and probably a one or two.
PC48
LKpN101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLKpN101 Flying Helmet - Superb Luftwaffe fighter pilot's Netzcopfhaube flying helmet. This has been with the same private collector for the last 34 years and whilst we do not have any history, it is believed the owner served in North Africa. The helmet is in totally original condition and features the short communication cord favoured by fighter pilots. This has a 4 pin connector and the helmet is fitted with Mi4b throat microphones. Other than minor wear to the receiver cups, this helmet is about as good as they come. It has provision for a 2 point oxygen mask. The 10-6701 oxygen mask illustrated has already been sold separately so this sale is for the LkpN 101 helmet alone.

1939 Pattern RAF Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture Sold1939 Pattern RAF Flying Boots - Stores ref. no. 22C/230. These are perhaps the most scarce and desirable of all wartime boots. Introduced in 1939 as a leather saving option over the 1936 pattern, they were not successful operationally as moisture picked up on the ground was absorbed by the canvas and froze at altitude. Despite this they were favoured by figher pilots and will remain synonymous with the Battle of Britain. This pair are an excellent example and while they are in issued condition, they clearly had a very easy war! The canvas leg section is very clean with only minor scuffing on the right boot. The leather uppers and soles are crisp. Inside the fur is good with only minor wear. The leather pull tags are in place and clearly marked with King's Crown, AM and the manufacturing contract number, indicating a production date of 1939. While these boots are really too valuable to wear, they are a UK size 10 (U.S. 10.5), so they have everything going for them. This pattern and size simply do not turn up on the market in any condition and we will be waiting a long time to find a similar pair. Our price reflects the scarcity of these unique boots.
