M8106 - RAF PRIVATE PURCHASE 36 PATT FLYING BOOTS.   £325
A pair of large size 36 patt flying boots RAF type 22c/80. these were the boots of choice during the Battle of Britain, so much so that even when the boots were no longer issued, pilots would private purchase them and this is one such pair, exactly the same as the RAF issue but they do not carry the RAF stamps, all black, excellent condition leather with cut-out and strap to the front top and fully fleece lined, they have original soles and are approx size 10.

M8905 - RAF PILOTS HOUSEMAID ROLL AND CONTENTS.   Sold
Unusual item of a pilots personal kit, being a military "housemaid" roll but of french origin, with private purchase type contents and named to a RAF pilot.

The french marked roll has been filled with officers private purchase items, razor in container, brush in container, soap container, all quality plated items and a metal shaving mirror in bag. The roll is ink marked to the owner ( R.A.F.V.F. 1187201 Pitman M.F.) which could indicate he was a pre-war reserve pilot, could be researched.

M8155 - RAF PILOT OFFICERS BD BLOUSE.   £185

The flight log book of S/Ldr. R.F.Clarke who started service as a Blenhiem pilot in 1939 with 101 Sqd, before taking an air navigation course on Ansons, then again flying Blenhiems, Battles & Hudsons, then flying sorties as a Spitfire pilot, in between missions in hudsons, over Dunkirk, where he got "shot up" and later over Lorient in intense flak where his gunner was killed, then crashed on landing. Towards the end of 1940 he became an instructor at various places. Then in 1943 he became an instructor on glider tugs, changing in 1944 to become a Horsa glider pilot and then instructor on the Horsa. From 1945 he went on to fly the Typhoon, Spitfire 1X, Lancaster and the meteor jet fighter. Final stamp in the book states he was killed on active service in august 1946 but no details. Very interesting career, both bomber and fighter pilot, then glider pilot and plenty of scope for research.

The tunic is in excellent condition, tan material, four pocket, integral belt with shoulder board rank in tropical colours and brown tropical buttons, quite different to the later 1940's tropical uniform, it is supplied with his full service history, interesting item.

M9361 - RAF OFFICERS DESK FLAG.   Sold

An excellent replica oxygen mask, leads & hoses, to fit current issue RAF flying helmets, great attention to detail and looks just like the real thing, which would be extremly difficult to find.

M8154 - RAF MK8 FLYING GOGGLES.   £65
A pair of rather scruffy condition, RAF Mk8 flying goggles, with elastic headstrap that has seen better days, will still display on a helmet ok, fair condition, hence the low price.

M6841 - RAF MESSAGE STREAMER.   £55
Excellent condition, red.yellow & blue cloth message streamer, with white cloth pouch at the end to hold the message, original use was by the RFC in the first war to relay information on german sites & movements to artillery etc and it continued in use into the 2nd War to drop messages where there was no radio link.

The cap comes with three framed photo's of early war period, one of a RAF pilot in uniform and wearing the cap, with a DFC ribbon but sadly no name. The second photo shows the same pilot with what appears to be his wife and the third photo shows a man of the same age in army uniform, possibly his brother. If someone can ID the man, there could be some good research.

M9287 - RAF CADETS SIDE CAP WITH FLASH.   Sold
A good sized RAF OR's rank side cap, unusual in having the white cadet flash to the front, which was removed after training was completed, scarce item.

M6659 - RAF BOMB DISPOSAL CLOTH PATCH.   £25
Excellent RAF Bomb Disposal, cloth trade badge, blue circular patch with silver/white thread design of a bomb surrounded by a wreath and the letters B D, introduced in 1941, it has carried on in use until the present day, difficult to date I think this one is postwar.

M9204 - RAF B TYPE FLYING HELMET.   £450
A very nice RAF B-type leather flying helmet, with its bennet buckle chinstrap and poppered cheek pads (they were removed when the D type mask was used) has makers label inside the chamois leather interior, marked to R.Sterling & Co Ltd and is dated 1939, size 6&7/8 to 7. Leather very supple, zips working to phone covers and its owner has made a modification, by removing the back strap and sowing up the open split on the back of the helmet used to enlarge it, so its set at one size, stitches could easily be removed if wanted but I think it makes a nice fitting helmet.

M9374 - RAF ALTER CANDLESTICKS 1918 TO 1928.   £160
A matched pair of brass & wood holders for church alter candles. The round, wood bases are both stamped with a kings crown & GR, also one is stamped 1918, the other 1928, the brass candlestick stems have a cut and folded petal design to the top and have brass RAF cap badges fixed halfway up, they stand approx 8 inches high and have been made to hold 2 inch dia candles. Possibly made for a RAF airfield church or chapel.

M8109 - RAF AIRCREW SURVIVAL KITE IN TUBE CONTAINER.   £30
Item of RAF dinghy survival equipment, being a yellow fold up kite in a yellow metal tube container, the idea being that downed crewmen could assembly the kite and fly it to carry an aerial lead for a transmitter in the dinghy, kite looks in decent shape but the metal container is pretty scruffy, along with the glued on paper instructional label.

M8111 - RAF AIRCRAFT RECOGNITION PLAYIN CARDS.   £45

Together with various photo's of him in uniform and in group settings, also there is a section of cloth eagles, trade & rank patches, plus metal cap badge & buttons, in a period, blanket lined cigarette box. Lastly there is a trench art brass bowl with RAF badge inset, inscribed with his name and also Biggin Hill, so appears he served on airfields here and in north africa.

M9099 - RAF 41 PATTERN LIFE VEST.   Sold
A good but non complete RAF 41 pattern life vest, has reproduction kapok filling but is otherwise devoid of all other items carried, so pockets etc are all empty but it makes a good project for someone, large size and has its kings crown and AM stamped makers label.

M7204 - RAF 41 PATT LEATHER FLYING GLOVES.   £165
A good pair of brown leather RAF 41 pattern flying gloves or gauntlets, with the diagonal zips and elasticated sections, these are the type 22C/756-765, an improved version of the 1933 pattern, well marked inside with kings crown & AM stamps, they are in good order with some signs of wear to the fingers and a small section of loose seam to one glove.

M8944 - POLISH NAVIGATORS EAGLE BADGE.   £70
A gilt finished, polish airforce navigators badge, being a swooping eagle with lightning bolts, holding a wreath with a small enamel disc with the number 2, which I think denotes 2nd class, to the top is a fine suspension chain and to the rear a screwback fitting, with polish makers details to the disc, nice condition, just a bit dirty.

M9408 - PILOTS WRIST COMPASS WITH EXTENSION STRAP.   £250
A luftwaffe pilots 1st model, type AK39 survival wrist compass, complete with extension to the black leather strap, to enable it to be worn over thick flight clothing, compass body is black bakerlite, fluid filled with black face, rear of case has maker and type details. Often these compasses suffered from loss of fluid over time but this one is as issued with correct, small air bubble which acts as a spirit level.

A complete oval, alloy indentity disc, with stamped markings to both halves of "2. NJG 102" for 2nd Staffel, Nightfigther Sqd 102, with 47 over the top as the persons number, this ID disc was found in Denmark, where the squadron was based from january 1945 until the end of the war, operating mainly the JU88 but also the Me110.

The items consist of his pocket watch in good working order with neat leather strap and engraved on the back to him and dated 1941, his leather wallet containing occupation currency and a number of photo snapshots showing him and others in I think, north africa, a trench art made brass ashtray, marked 41 Sqd, 1944. The items are from his days in north africa & Italy, before he came back to fight in europe, great scope for full research, there is already a photo copy of a book chapter on the fighting in Italy which gives him mention and he is known to have flown in support of the invasion of southern france "Operation Dragoon" and to have flown rocket fireing missions in normandy and much more, also a very nice named watch.

M9288 - NEW ZEALAND PILOTS WINGS AND BUTTONS.   Sold
Nice original pair of cloth New Zealand pilots wings, same as RAF but with NZ in the centre, also several buttons also NZ marked, scarce items.

M9020 - NAMED PAIR OF RAF PILOTS WINGS.   £95
A good condition pair of kings crown, RAF pilots cloth wings, which are unusual due to the reverse having been marked with a date 4/2/42 and also "Sgt. 778360 G.W.Oldham" which I assume was the owner of the wings. No research has been made into the service career of this pilot and I can only think that the date may refer to when he earned his wings.

M8187 - MK3C RAF PILOTS GREEN FLYING HELMET.   £100
A green finish, Mk3c, RAF pilots helmet, complete, with blast visor & tinted visor, plus a velvet cover, helmet is well used with scuffs etc to the shell, which has refective tape attached and a velcro pad to take a squadron patch, the well cushioned internals look complete, though the protective covering on one headphone cushion is missing, has its straps and fittings for the oxygen mask, medium size and displays well..

The pilot who used this map flew Bf109's & Fw190's with first JG302 "Wilde Sau" Jagdgeschwader, then later with NJG 11 from 1943 until wars end, map is in fine condition and folded.
