EXCEPTIONAL!! WWII RAF 1st Pattern Ctype Flying Helmet - SIZE 4!!


This Ctype carries one of the finest Air Ministry stamps I've seen on a Wartime RAF Flying Helmet. To top that, it reads "REF No. 22C/452" - The all important "452" referring to the size 4!! and a very good size 4 it is too.

The Helmet itself is in excellent overall condition with good soft leather (no tears or scuffing). The receiver cups are both soft and flexible and the Bennetts Buckle has its full leather covering. The chamois lining shows use but minimal dirt and wear.

OUTSTANDING!! Unissued? WWII Luftwaffe Officer Visor Cap - by EREL


In my opinion, this stunning Luftwaffe Officers Visor would be almost IMPOSSIBLE TO UPGRADE!!

This has the very bare minimum of wear and other than a small piece missing from the Diamond and a tiny break in the bullion.....this could be descibed as MINT!!

ORIGINAL!! RFC Cockpit Instrument Panel Watch Holder #1


In fine condition this very scarce RFC/RAF Panel Watch Holder has one remarkable extra feature. It is marked on the reverse "Stag Lane". Stag Lane Aerodrome was a private Aerodrome between 1915 and 1933 located in Edgeware, London, UK.

The land for an Aerodrome in Edgeware was purchased by the London & Provincial Aviation Company during October 1915. The company used the aerodrome for Royal Flying Corps Pilot Training during the First World War. London & Provincial ceased flying in July 1919 after a dispute with Department of Civil Aviation, which refused them a licence.

Stag Lane then became the main base of the de Havilland Aircraft Company Limited in 1920. Former wartime aircraft were refurbished in the early years, and the company designed and built large numbers of aircraft at Stag Lane in the 1920s and early 1930s. In 1934 the company moved to a larger factory and airfield at Hatfield Aerodrome, Hatfield, Hertfordshire.

As you can see, the holder is in excellent overall condition with just one small kink in the mounting section. The glass is first class with just a couple of small scratches which could be polished out. The velvet lining has had repairs.

A rare item in itself, but the Stag Lane connection makes this just that little bit special!

VERY RARE!! White Dial MkIV.A RFC Cockpit Watch/Panel Clock


A wonderful Royal Flying Corps MkIVA Watch in extremely good condition.

Made by "ETIENNE & CIE", an identical model can be seen at the bottom of page 394 of Konrad Knirim's superb book on British Military Timepieces.

The stem has never been drilled for a loop and the watch is in fine working condition. As you'd expect from a 100 year old timepiece the case shows wear but both hinges work fine. The crystal, dial, and "blued" hands are all in superb condition.

ONLY THREE EVER FOUND!! - Named 1916 RFC MkV Cockpit Watch/Panel Clock - B.H 3774


From my research I believe there were only 661 of this type of MkV Cockpit Watch/Clock ever made, and to date only three have ever been found.

This MkV carries the mark B.H 3774, no makers mark but posssibly made by "RECORD". To top it all it is also engraved to an RFC Airman "W EVANS 76504" - "1916 RFC"

The stem has never been drilled for a loop and the watch is in fine working condition. The crystal shows signs of use but nothing too dramatic (see pictures) and the dial. hands and case are all in very good condition.
