RAF Escape & Evasion Compass Buckle



A good working example of the scarce RAF escape & evasion compass aid, concealed within a standard issue battle dress blouse waist buckle.

Perhaps one of the most ingenious yet complicated escape aids, this compass could be concealed on the uniform blouse and assembled when needed.
Sliding the metal sleeve to one side would allow the small compass pointer to drop out, on flicking up the needle point the bar would point north when placed on top of the needle.

This example functions exactly as it should and is an attractive example. There is one very small mark to the buckle bar and some overall verdigris.

These buckles were developed by Clayton Hutton and his team at MI9 and are scarcely encountered.

RAF Rubber Oxygen Hose Tube



RAF rubber oxygen hose as used in conjunction with the E & G type series of oxygen mask, throughout the middle to the end of the Second World War.

This example has been poorly stored and is rather stiff and inflexible. There is a line of degraded rubber as pictured, that stretched around 3.5 inches from the top of the hose. This would likely be concealed when displayed.

Not in the best condition, but still displayable and priced accordingly.

RAF Aircrew Parachute Bag (1)



A well used example of the parachute bag used by RAF & Commonwealth aircrew throughout the war. This example is pre-1944, being stamped with the Air Ministry crown as opposed to the later broad arrow.

This example has unfortunately suffered from poor storage and as a result the zip is missing a number of teeth, with a lot of verdigris to the metal work throughout. The zip does function but only a to a certain point as pictured, is also looks to be a period replacement being slightly shorter. The internal flaps are present, however the metal work is degraded somewhat and the rear of one popper is missing.

Overall a nice early example but not in the best of conditions.

A fair example of the back pad, used on RAF parachute harnesses, Air Ministry marked and complete with press studs to attach to the harness straps.

This example is in overall good condition and stamped 'EMAUS S2', though this marking is currently unknown. There are a couple of missing press studs as pictured.

Overall a good solid example, perfect for completing a parachute harness.

RAF Aircrew Parachute Bag (2)



A well used example of the parachute bag used by RAF & Commonwealth aircrew throughout the war.

This example has some damage as pictured to the corner in several places and a rip to the top. This damage could no doubt be repaired. the 'Flash' zip functions well and it retains all of the internal flaps and press studs. There is some overall grubbiness to the material, as is commonplace.

The top flap bears the name 'Ted Lay' along with a small service number in red ink.

Overall a nice example with some repair work needed.

1940 Pattern Flying Boots Size 9



A lovely pair of 1940 Pattern flying boots as used by RAF & Commonwealth aircrew from around 1941 through to the end of the war. This pattern is perhaps most associated with Bomber Command and is not to be confused with the more common 1941 Pattern that is sometimes seen at the very end of the war through to the jet age.

This pair are seemingly slightly different in colour but have been paired together in stores but do not appear to have been worn judging by the condition of the soles. They are both marked in exactly the same way, both internal leather tongues being AM stamped along with matching Lightning brand zippers and Itshide soles. The zips are AM stamped on the underside.

The overall condition of the suede is excellent with no real markings or wear, the soles being undamaged or cracked; something that often happens with this pattern. The sheepskin is thick with no fur loss and good unsoiled colour. The rubber surround is very good on one boot, with some amount of melting and loss to the other. This is unfortunately another common pitfall with this pattern, overall however they are above average.

They are marked a size 9, this sizing appears to be accurate.
