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. +)

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.
PC50
Luftwaffe Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Flying Boots - In good original condition and looking at the design and specification, appear to date from mid to late WWII. Black leather uppers with black leather/beige nubuck legs. Fitted with original Wilop bump pattern soles. Both zips are functioning; the right boot carries a metal example by Rapid, while the left has a economy plastic Ri-Ri which looks to be a wartime replacement. All straps are complete, although there are minor variations between the buckle arrangements, so may have been mis-matched at some stage, but appear to have been worn as a pair. These were purchased direct from Germany in nice original condition and showing normal service wear. No labels are fitted, but we estimate to be about a UK 9, USA 9 1/2, Continental 43.
1365

USAAF Bombardier's Case type E-1 - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF Bombardier's Case type E-1 - Named to Lt. D. J. Perkins, service no. 0-731415. An extremely nice wartime example which could be researched. All zips are original Conmar and in good working order. The fitted interior is very clean and all in all this case would be hard to better.
3444
Luftwaffe fur lined Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe fur lined Flying Boots - This pair came in with the Luftwaffe suit we have recently listed and are post war examples in good original condition. They feature black grained leather uppers, cleated rubber soles with zip and strap fastenings. We cannot decipher the actual size, but they would appear to align to a UK size 9 (Continental 43). A durable and useable pair of boots at a modest price.
3572
Luftwaffe Officer's Belt - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Officer's Belt - A fine original example in tan leather, complete with double pronged pebbled finish buckle. Minor staining to the leather and like many examples we see, the retaining loop for the belt end is absent, but this does not detract and it is perfect for a mannequin display or for re-enactment. It does not have any manufacturer's marks or date stamp and is a good size measuring 46" (117 cm)
3078
Luftwaffe Parachute Quick Release Buckle - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Parachute Quick Release Buckle - A fine example of the war time pattern as used on WWII seat and chest parachutes. It is clearly stamped to the front as shown in the pictures and the back is stamped SA Scholss and manufactured by DR.Gettwart Berlin. Also stamped is FL 30232. What makes this example unusual is the parachute webbing attachment clips are still present and each is stamped FL.30232-1. Unlike many we see, this is not in relic condition and is in full working order. It would make a fine addition to a Luftwaffe collection or to assist in rebuilding a complete parachute assembly.
2057
RAF B type Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF B type Helmet - This example is dated 1938 and made by Frank Bryan. Marked size 2 but fits more like a 4. The helmet has been field modified and is fitted with Gosport tubes in good working order. Now looking for a Tiger Moth to plug it into!
2429
1936 Pattern Flying Boots - Click for the bigger picture Sold1936 Pattern Flying Boots - This pair is RNZAF issue and are based upon the standard RAF 1936 pattern. They feature a black chrome leather upper with fleece lining and a leather tightening strap and buckle across the "V" shaped front opening. This variant does not have the internal leather pulls associated with the RAF boot. The top of the left leg is embossed NZ40 3246. This appears to be the RNZAF issue number, although it could be the owner's service number. The boots show some service use with mothing to the internal fur and they have been resoled at some stage. We cannot see a size marked, but they appear to be about a UK 8, Continental 42, US 8 1/2.
357
Observation Binoculars - Click for the bigger picture SoldObservation Binoculars - WWII, RAF issue, in original issue case. Stamped with Kings Crown, AM, ref. 6E/293 on instrument and case. Good optics but would benefit from cleaning.
