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.)

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.

1932 Pattern Mae West Life Jacket - Click for the bigger picture Sold1932 Pattern Mae West Life Jacket - This example is made by the Dominion Rubber Company in Canada and was issued to both RAF and RCAF air crew in WWII. Finished in yellow rubberised canvas, it is fitted with the original label confirming both the RAF and RCAF issue numbers, as well as the size which is large. It has various stencilled instructions to the front and on the reverse "Armament". Generally in excellent condition, with a small stitch repair near the inflation tube loop, but this is more or less hidden behind the flap cover. The jacket is on offer without kapoks or bladder, although we have an excellent pair of reproduction kapoks at additional cost if required. This jacket represents excellent value, particularly when compared with current retail prices on early RAF green examples.

RAF Interception Plotter Mk III - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Interception Plotter Mk III - A most impressive instrument, stores ref. 6B/432, but re-referenced 6E/504 and fitted in original transit box. Instructions for setting up and use are detailed on the inside cover which has amendment dates 23.9.41 and 22.3.44. The instrument is in first class original condition. The transit case measures 28" x 7" x 10" (71 cm x 18 cm x 25 cm) and is a heavy item. Postage to specific destinations can be advised on request.

Luftwaffe Leather Flight Suit - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Leather Flight Suit - Manufactured in soft grey leather with a rayon lining. It has a full length zip fastening to the front with further Ri-Ri zips to wrist, ankles and pockets. All are functioning and one ankle zip has been replaced. The interior label is marked Beckumer Lederwerk and while is it not dated, we believe this to be a post war suit. The size label indicates 50 and the suit is a good size and would fit someone around 72" tall (103 cm). It has some service wear and minor repairs, but is generally sound and is a warm, comfortable and useable example.
PC51
RFC/RAF 1st Pattern Sidcot Suit - Click for the bigger picture SoldRFC/RAF 1st Pattern Sidcot Suit - This all in one flying suit was introduced into RAF service towards the end of WWI and served in modified forms throughout the inter-war years and WWII. This scarce example is in the totally original condition collectors dream of, but rarely find. The quilted fireproof fabric is in excellent condition with only minor stains and service wear. The leg pockets are correctly fur lined and all button closures are intact. Inside the synthetic fur lining is also excellent. No label, but the inner flap is stamped 26 WD P and there is a broad arrow military property mark. This suit is a good display size and deserves to be in a museum - which is the only place we have seen one before!
2231
Bulgarian Air Force Winter Flying Suit - Click for the bigger picture SoldBulgarian Air Force Winter Flying Suit - This example is made to a superb specification, in extremely soft suede leather with a full fur lining. This suit is similar to the Luftwaffe WWII winter Fliegerkombi for arctic conditions and often called the "Bavarian suit". Crested buttons to front and while it has minor storage marks, it appears to be in unissued condition. Very warm and ideal for open cockpit winter flying. Large size, to fit height 72" + (183 cm. +)
2699
RAF Air Crew Emergency Compass - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Air Crew Emergency Compass - Stamped with a broad arrow, stores reference number 6B/2593 and serial number 15045B/59. It is fitted with original canvas wrist strap (frayed at one end). The compass card moves freely and there is a mirror to the inside lid to enable compass bearing to be taken on distant object. These compasses date from the post war period. Sold as a collector's item.
PC53
Japanese Airman's Rescue Signal Flag - Click for the bigger picture SoldJapanese Airman's Rescue Signal Flag - Designed to be folded and carried by Japanese airman in WWII, to aid rescue if forced to ditch over water. The flag is made from a very light material, possibly silk and stitched within the edge is a kapok type floatation device to enable the flag to be spread flat on the water. The rising sun section is oversized compared to a regular Japanese flag, in order to attract maximum attention. Minor service wear and staining, but a most unusual and rare item. 102 cm x 79 cm (40" x 31")
2107
German WWII Leuchpistole - Click for the bigger picture SoldGerman WWII Leuchpistole - Single barrel example manufactured by Erma Erfurt and clearly dated 1940. These flare pistols were issued to Luftwaffe and Kreigsmarine personnel. This example is in good issued condition and has been de-activated with the correct certification, so can be legally owned in the UK without a firearms' certificate. Waffen stamped to barrel.
2950
Mae West Cotton Skull Cap - Click for the bigger picture SoldMae West Cotton Skull Cap - Carried in the pocket of the RAF Mae West lifejacket and it improved chances of being rescued if downed over water. This is a rare variant as it carries an extended back flap to offer improved sun protection, so we assume would have been issued to aircrew serving in tropical or desert climates.
PC49
RAF C Type Flying Helmet 2nd Pattern - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF C Type Flying Helmet 2nd Pattern - Marked with stores ref. 22C/880 and with the ministry broad arrow property mark. This indicates it is a size 4 - the largest size offered. While this example has been issued, it is in prestine condition inside and out. Currently, it does not have receivers or wiring loom fitted, but with suitable plumbing, this helmet would be hard to improve upon. The chin strap has retained its elasticity and all the snaps and buckles are in perfect order. The inside of the helmet is equally clean. A rare and desirable example.
