PROGRESS & PICTURE - Captain A.M.C 'Jock' Smith - WWII South African Air Force Pilot
I have received a letter of provenance and now have further information on Captain A.M.C "Jock" Smith of the South African Air Force.......see Code No. 52697 for his Flying Headset
Jock (Beaufighter Pilot) was Mentioned in Despatches on 3rd April 1943. Later in life he was awarded the MBE for Services to Industry. Incredibly, during the making of the movie "African Queen" he was tasked with flying Humphrey Bogart to and from the film set.
Some of this new information should surely help establish 'Jock's' full identity and his SAAF Service History.

Robert Taylor is widely regarded as the world's foremost aviation artist. This particular drawing was made just a few years into his professional career making this one-off drawing a very sound investment for Aviation Art/Robert Taylor enthusiasts.
Johnnie Johnson comment on Robert Taylor......
"As a fighter pilot who flew the types of aircraft that Robert Taylor paints so brilliantly I can only marvel at his ability. He paints more than just aircraft, he paints with spectacular reality the whole vista of the sky that is the world of the Fighter Pilot.” Air Vice Marshal Johnnie Johnson CB CBE DSO** DFC** DL.

VERY RARE!! early Post-War 'Luftwaffe'/Russian LKpN101 Flying Helmet
The evolution in Luftwaffe and post-War Eastern Bloc Flying Gear could hardly be better demonstated than by comparing this Flying Helmet with the WWII Luftwaffe LKpN101 Flying Helmet shown below.
Code: 52699Price: 650.00 GBP
EXCELLENT! - LARGE!! Luftwaffe LKpN101 Flying Helmet - COMPLETE!
There is one rather unique feature to this Luftwaffe LKpN101 Flying Helmet....just look at the leather of the throat mic straps. I've never come across such a colour on any Luftwaffe Flying Helmet.
There are a few holes in the netting but none too large that it ruins the look. Other than that this Luftwaffe Flying Helmet is in extremely good condition.
