RAF OA Issue Black Wool Tie

RAF OA Issue Black Wool Tie

Code: 10265


Plain black tie as issued to all airman and NCOs in the RAF, complete with issue label.

The label is regrettably obliterated of any information, though clearly indicates it as an issue item. There is also has the owners name and number hand written on a piece of tape and stitched inside the smaller end. It is not certain whether this is a wartime tie, though certainly appears to have been issued later judging by the name tape which does not appear wartime.

The tie is in fair condition throughout, with a small moth nip to the rear and some wear to the front as pictured. This would not be visible when displayed on a mannequin.

Issue RAF ties are becoming rather scarce, no doubt due to their ubiquitous use in civilian life like the issue OA shirts.
