Not all aircraft mentioned have the technical information as it would appear the book was made in 1943 and information was not available, this is mentioned in the book. The whole book has the look of being made ''in theater'' with the binding made of string, certain diagrams of aircraft done in pencil, number of named aircraft without information, the use of typed printed sheets and a type of zerox diagrams. No printing information or department marks.Over 30 Japanese aircraft are mentioned. An interesting item for the aircraft fan!

1943 Deutscher Jugend Meister Award. Still found attached to part of the British Naval money belt is this well used but extremely rare 1943 dated Hitler Youth award. The condition is as seen in the pictures with loss of the red enamel to the bottom half of the diamond and only a certain amount of its period finish found around the date , the rear has lost its fixing pin and the veteran has mounted the badge to his belf by drilling holes eitjer side and using thread. I cannot find any markings to the rear of the badge. The belt was brought back by a Cardiff naval veteran who was ended up being docked in Bremen at the end of the war, the belt was complete with a number of high end naval awards pinned to the body of the belt, they have all gone now but whats left and seen in the photos is whats up for sale, even with the damage i think it would be near impossible to find another example.

1945 Belgium Made Battle Dress With Formation Patches. Belgium produced BD with a makers label dated 1945. Condition is not that bad, numerous moth holes and tracking to the nap of the material. An interesting note is the inside lining made from German tan herringbone material. Ive not managed to ID the two formation patches but perhaps as someone stated they might well be for the 9th Scottish Infantry Division, or not???? I purchased this a number of yeas ago as i found it interesting, now its time for a new home.
1945 Dated 8th Indian Division Battle Dress Blouse. This is a 1945 dated Indian made BD Blouse with a clear 45 dated stamp to the inside. The nap to the material is very nice with only one moth nip found on the front pocket. One button missing to a bottom cuff.The back shows ''tailoring'' with bottom pleats and a rear stitch line going down the back where the jacket was taken in. The inside rough lining is very clean and has two clear Indian stamps to one side, just some minor staining to the collar area. The two 8th Indian Division formation patches are hand sewn and do appear to be period applied as this blouse was lightly used going by the condition and i would presume its the type used as ''best'' for a soldier on his way home after the end of hostilities. Would be difficult to upgrade the condition on this example.
1945 Dated ARP Battle Dress Blouse. Wartime example with a nice period ARP cloth badge sewn aboe the front pocket. Insidehas a nice clear 1945 dated label. Im afraid to say this example has some good moth damage to certain areas, mostly to the bottom right side under the pocket and arm, another moth rip to the top collar area with a couple more moth nips to the back. With some postwar CD uniform material this would be a repair job worth doing!!

The citation is made out to a member of Gren.Rgt. 975 who where part of the 367 Inf Div, at the time being active around Konigsberg. I presume he was wounded and evacuated by sea to Ponitz. This matches his British POW release document as Poniitz was part of the British Occupied Zone.

When the soldier left these bags where handed in and stored. Recently these came onto the market from a Belgium collector who purchased a warehouse full many years ago and decided he needed to pass them on.

The scabbard has 100% of its leather covering with just a couple of wear marks and none of the screws have been tampered with. Chain is complete as is the 'OLC' and 'Ges Gesch' marked clip.

Austrian M16 Transitional Helmet. A interesting WW1 Austrian helmet that was reworked during WW2 having a nice flat rough grey finish brushed over the outside shell and the inside rim, this finish has had a fine sand grit added.This rough finish rates at around 90% intact. The original green factory finish can be seen to the inside crown. At some point the chinstrap bales and top vents have been removed after the application of the rough finish. The shell has a couple of knocks. The inside has a second pattern reinforced aluminium liner bad with ''square'' chinstrap bales, liner pins have not been tampered with.

The over the shoulder strap as some fraying to the edges only, helmet ring again in complete condition but the elastic is not the best. No markings to be found.

A number of photos of Jones in uniform including one in slouch presume in Burma. Lastly and i find the more interesting is a letter from the Ministry of Pensions forwarding to Jones the Kings Badge for War wounded included is the badge.

I would also if you don't mind like to say, may the gods bless you Mogsy, as he has recently passed away!

A nicely produced Fire Match wooden holder or perhaps a pipe stand with caricatures of Churchill to the front peering around the corner and a frightened looking Hitler hiding to the back.

The decal is close to 95% complete with a certain amount of overall wear but details are clear. All liner pins are tight. The inside liner has seen some action and there is a split to the front edge and one finger has come adrift but still attached to the string, The string used appears to be a shoe lace and in my opinion would be period as the damage and shrinkage caused to the back of the liner, perhaps blood trauma, would strongly suggest. No chistrap found with this example. The back Lot number is 855 and the makers code EF64.

The leather liner is complete and supple with just a touch of dryness, no tips have been pulled through, only the stitching to the rear has come adrift. The shell is stamped to the firm ET and is size marked 66 and the rear lot number appears to be 4432. FOLKS, THIS HELMET IS BEING RE-LISTED DUE TO A ''TIRE KICKER'' AND NON PAYMENT.
Kreigsmarine T BLC,7X50 H, Binoculars. Nr660. In very nice condition with perfect optics and sharp focus.

The inside has a couple of diffrent colours. At some point someone has scratched the back of the skirt to reveal the ''Q64'' stamp,underneath the Lot number can be seen. Apparently all Quist 42's are marked Q64.

Letters And Medal From RAF Sergeant P.D.H.Mcgovern Killed Over France 1940. Mcgovern was tragically killed in June 1940 when his Blenheim was lost over France in 1940, one of six Blenheims lots that night due to bad weather. 12 Hurricanes and 12 Blenheims were being ferried to reinforce the besieged Island of Malta when all ran into very bad conditions. Mcgovern and the other two crew members are buried at the Charroux communial cemetary. The group consists a number of letters written by Mcgovern to his father from 1938 ,four are when he was training as a member of the RAFVR, all have had the address details ripped from the corners, others are from his time when he was working in a few hotels in Switzerland, going by his letters he needed to leave the local area for a while as there appears to have been a certain amount of trouble over a girl. A number of letters during his training mention his forthcoming marriage to a lady older than him, he doesnt seem that keen but belives its the right thing for him and if anything happens she will be paid by the forces till the end of the war. One letter does mention how dangerous his job is and that according to statistics he only has 7 minutes life.The small picture of Mcgovern has his details written on the back. The rest has something to do with his father, note books and medical card, The War medal in box with no name as also found in the wooden box, perhaps his only entitlement! Just to add, the box has a hand written message to the inside lid dated 1914 from Matron to Catherine? He wasnt far wrong about a dangerous job and due to fate he didnt die in action but due to unforeseen circumstances, poignant really, not sure if he even married the girl as this small lot was found recently in the attic of a house during a clearance here in the Cardiff area.

Luftwaffe M35 DD Combat Helmet. ET62. A well used combat helmet that has received at least two coats of reissued paint on top of the factory finish, a whitewash then on top a dark blue/grey. The the last coat of reissued paint id rate at being 40% remaining the rest has the original factory finish which rates at 90% with most loss to finish being the crown area. The eagle decal is at least 75% complete and on top off what i believe is its first decal, a droop tail example. The tri colour rates at 40% and at one point was under the dark reissued paint. The inside factory finish is close to 100% complete.The early single banded framed liner is in nice supple and complete condition, the inside has a Regimental stamp and the owner has written his name to the inside shell in red crayon. Liner pins have not been tampered with but slightly loose as expected from a well used combat helmet. The original chinstrap is complete but the long end section as a certain amount of damage and one repair, lets call it fragile, the aluminium buckle end appears to be fine. Shell is stamped ET62 on the side and the rear Lot number is 3221.
Luftwaffe M35 Droop Tail DD Combat Helmet. ET66. A nice well used example with id say at least 75% of its factory finish the rest having that dark patina to the metal. The first pattern Droop Tail decal rates at over 90% with sharp detail, the Tri Colour decal id say rates at 45%. The inside has nearly all its factory finish and the shell is marked ET66 to the side with the Lot number being 4075. The liner frame is the second reinforced type and the leather liner is complete and supple taking on a very nice dark colour, it has its original string. The liner is named to a Funker with details but i cannot make them out. The liner pins are unmolested but are slightly loose from use. The leather chinstrap is the original example but the long strap has lost its end and the buckle end is missing other than the aluminium buckle.
Luftwaffe M40 SD Combat Helmet. ET66. Outside finish to the shell i would rate at 95% with some of the usual wear found on helmets that where used in combat, this finish has a nice flat appearance from not being handled too much. The decal i would say is 75% complete having been worn down from helmet use as it matches the overall appearance of the outside shell.Liner pins are tight. The inside liner has a nice colour with one tip having an old fashioned repair using wax, this wax has then been used to go along the complete top edge of the liner to prevent damage and preservation. The inside shell has 100% of its flat period finish and a very nice clear dome stamp. The makers details to the side and the Lot numbers are clearly stamped.
Luftwaffe M40 SD Combat Helmet. Q62. A very nice example with around 95% of its period rough finish to the shell. The decal rates at close to 95% , one good knock to the tip of one wing. The liner pins are tight. The inside shell has all its flat factory finish and the liner has a very nice colour and is supple, the liner string in my opinion appears to be the period example. The shell has a clear makers stamp and size, Q62 and the rear Lot number is T995. Going by the appearance of the chinstrap i would say its the helmets period example, no maker can be found as the last inch or so has some damage, the strap was over the visor when i purchased the helmet and i have left it ''as is''.
Luftwaffe Numbered Metal Tag. In nice condition with an early Luft eagle to one side and the number 25 to the other.
Luftwaffe Soldbuch and Paperwork, III/Flak Regiment 12. A nice complete Soldbuch to a well decorated NCO who serve with a Flak Regiment 12 and various sub units including searchlights for nightfighter zones in Holland and Belgium. His last unit was Heer Flak Battalion 504 , the Stab being lucky enough not to go East with the rest of the Regiment and serving in Gottingen, lower Saxony. This city was captured April 7th by the US first army, his last award, the KVK1, was awarded on the April 20th so his unit must have been able to move and keep on fighting. His decorations include the First and second class War Merit Crosses, 4year service and the October 1st medals . The two documents found with this Soldbuch are is his promotion document, dated 1940 and his Oct 1st medal certificate. The condition of this set of documents is very good. This book needs more research as i found his units a bit confusing to say the least, perhaps he served in Italy at one point?
Luftwaffe Soldbuch, Driving Liecence,POW Soldbuch and Release Cert. A nice little grouping to Berlin born Stabs Grefreiter Anton Kraus of Lu/Nachr/Komp[mot] 1/1.

Clear label to the inside. No internal communication equipment as used by bomber crews etc.

M34 DD Police Feuerschutzpolizie Helmet. This example has i would say close to 100% of its black finish to the inside and outside shell. The decals rate at close too 100% with minor scratches. The inside leather is supple with the only issue being the loss of its chinstrap.
M34 Feuerschutzpolizei Helmet, Erel. A well used fire helmet with its period leather neck flap. The helmet has recived an extra coat of black finish over the outside shell. The inside has all its early fixtures including the early spring clip chinstrap, supple liner thats double marked by the Erel firm and all rear neck flap fittings. On close inspection i belive i can make out the two decals under the overpaint. May i add that a quick wipe over the shell with a damp cloth will bring the finish up a treat!
M34 Feuerschutzpolizei Helmet. In very nice condition, outside of the shell has had a second coat of black, this rates at over 98% intact, minor scuffs etc. No decal seen under this second coat. The inside liner and chinstrap are complete and in supple condition, underneath the liner near the brow is a folded news paper, i pressume for comfort. I managed to fold back one corner and found that its a wartime NSKK paper but have not removed it for closer inspection, well its been there for over 75 years and best to leave it as is. Makers symbol stamped to the back neck area of the helmet.
M34 Square Dip Luftschutz Steel Helmet. Condition is very good with over 90% of its dark blue factory finish remaining, one small ''ding'' to the rear only.Ive not tried to clean and belive a light wipe with a damp cloth would bring up the finish The liner pins are tight. The front decal is nearly 99% complete with just the slightest of bubbling to the bottom area. The inside paint finish is complete with the late war cloth type liner in supple condition but one tear near the front on one side. The supple liner again complete but one end has come through the side rivet which holds the strap to the sides, i belive this can be repaired without to much work. All in all a nice scarce Luftschutz model.
M35 Reichsbahn Visor Cap. In very nice condition with sharp colour to the caps material, couple of minor stains and a couple of moth nips to the red piping only, cap still retains a good solid shape. The blue cloth chinstrap is interwoven with gold cloth held onto the visor by two gold coloured buttons.The eagle i belive has been added as im certain these should be gold in colour, its the right pattern but i would expect this to have been a zinc example and guilded. The inside lining and sweat band are complete, just a small section of the celluloid remains, faint makers details can be seen but i cannot make them out. May i add that the two ''whiteout'' patches seen in the photos are due to moisture in my camera lense and not fading to the visor material.
M35 Woodchip Camouflage Helmet. In what i would call semi relic condition is this M35 helmet that has a heavy woodchip camo applied , it would appear this application saved the outside from the results of bad storage over the years. The woodchip id rate at over 90% complete with its colour , a few areas are missing showing the previous coats including the factory green, cannot find any trace of decals. There is one original liner pin remaining, the back one has been added. The inside liner and chinstrap would appear to be the original period example as they match the condition of the shell perfectly but i found out after purchasing in a dark show room that it is indeed a replacement but a very good matching addition. The long end of the chinstrap has broken and the liner frame has split near on chinstrap bale. So not a bad looking woodchip camouflage helmet that displays nicely and much cheaper than the usual examples of period woodchip camo helmets.

The decal rates at around 45% intact. The liner has nice colour and is in very nice condition, the tie chord appears to be original to the helmet. Chinstrap is RBN numbered and in fine condition but the short end is missing. The liner rattles slightly but as seen from one picture the pins have not been tampered with.
M42 No Decal German Combat Helmet. In very nice condition with lets say 99% of its period flat factory finish intact, some minor scrapes from storage and two small knocks to the top.

No cast number to be found on the pommel. The scabbard is complete with both pairs of wings, the top elastic has stretched somewhat. Along the front of the scabbard the owner has penned in ink using a fountain pen his details. It would appear to read...COOK TAYLOR MX 752654 NAVAL COMMANDO'S, the firts name might be GOOK with a dot above the O and there might well be a 1 just in front of the 4.

The inside liner is again very nice with the shell having a 1941 date and size mark ''M''.

He was issued a rifle several times and various other equipment. He did spend time in Hospital in 1943 with these pages in the book giving details. I don't believe he was issued any awards.

Going by the condition of jacket and trousers id say the set has never been issued and have been together for quite some time.
Unissued Luftschutz M38 Gladiator Helmet. The flat paint finish has to be nearly 100% intact other than a couple of scrapes from storage, the decal again nearly 100% complete, one scrape to the left wing, liner pins are tight.

The ''OD'' webbed strap is sewn over the bales and the fastening ends are brass with a black finish. The Firestone marked liner, again with nearly 100% finish, has its full ''OD'' strapping with just a small amount of fraying, these straps are fastened to the liner with steel ''A'' washers.

Obviously the former owner thought he needed to get to his pistol in quick time or was a bit of a ''dandy''!
USAAF Summer Flight Helmet, Type AN-H-S. In good condition, clean to the outside as is the inside, id say its most probably an unissued item. Due to storage issues the back strap poppers have seized with the result that someone has pulled one popper through the cap material. The cloth tag to the inside states a size medium
USMC MICH / ACH Kevlar Combat Helmet. MSA Production. In very nice condition with a certain amount of usage. The digital camo cover has bright colour with only two areas of damage around the front liner bolts only, the green elastic strap being held in place by a safety pin to the rear.

Victorian Buff Leather Swivel Carbine Belt. Considering its age this example is in very nice condition with only one small cut to the buff leather to the back, leather is still supple and strong but does appear in distressed condition due to the years of white blanko/ paint applied. The large brass buckle has one fixing prong only and the bottom brass hook swivels as expected from a carbine belt. No markings are to be found and i cannot find a reference to the pattern but in my opinion its a nice period example in need of a good home. THANK YOU JOHN!!
Victorian Hand Painted Police Constable's Truncheon. In nice used condition with close to all its period finish remaining, no chips to the wood just a couple of minor cracks to the tip. The hand painted Victorian crown is around 90% complete with some nice crazing to the paint finish, the constable title again nearly 90% complete.
Victorian NCO Barracks Jacket. This jacket has at some point been converted by removing the two small top pockets and the button holes being tailored to take a larger button, perhaps an Edwardian conversion. The jacket has been well used and has a number of stains , one of the back belt loops has come adrift at the bottom. There are just a couple of moth nips and a small hole to the back, well i cant get the tip of my wee little pinky in it so its small! The NCO arm and collar tress is fine with tight stitching, collar would appear to have had two collar dogs and there is another corresponding hole to the back.The collar is closed by one large hook and eye fastener. Bottom pockets are tight stitched to the top ending in a bellows at the bottom. All buttons are brass KC GS examples, when they where added is anyone's guess, as mentioned the button holes have been extended and machined. The inside has a rough, course grey lining to the top shoulder area only, no dates or markings to be found. WAS PRICED AT 125.
Victorian Thomas Turner Sportsman's Pocket Knife. A very nice condition early Turner multi tool clasp knife with very nice stag horn grips with no damage. The blades have not been over sharpend and still have a strong spring to them. All metal fittings have staining but no pitting, clear markings to both blades.The three tools on the backside again with heavy spring. At the back of the horn handles the ''tweezers'' can be found but im afraid the ''picker'' has gone. A good solid example of an early Turner Sportsmans pocket knife. WAS PRICED AT 180
Vintage British Submariners Cloth Badge. They Come Unseen. This is a very early example going by the condition, construction and the misshaped letter O in the word COME. I cannot state what date it is but im going to say at least early postwar or perhaps earlier, its not one of those horrible ''blingy''' ones found usually when searching the net.
Vintage Fighting Knife, Dirk, Deakin and Ecroyed, Tiger Works. A very nice example of a Victorian dirk made by the firm of Deakin and Ecroyed of Sheffield. The blade has good finish with slight water marks to the tip, staining and a couple of areas of rust bleed mainly to the tang areas on both sides, just the slightest of pit marks. One side of the blade when it left the factory had the makers details and from what i can see a military style motif, drums and flags , just below this is a tigers head and word ''Tiger'', this etch can still be made out but is faint. The handle i believe is molded tortoise shell in the form as seen with so called cutlery dirks, there are no chips or cracks, the top of the handle might have had a finishing button of sorts but im not 100% sure as the decoration ends right at the top of the pommel area. Cross guard is a thin nickle type. The period scabbard is made from cardboard that was painted , its in a distressed condition as expected made from board, its lost its bottom chape but still has its metal throat. All in all a decent example and made by a firm that does not come onto the market often. Dirk measures just under 11 inches. FOR SALE TO OVER 18'S AND UK ONLY.
Vintage Fighting Knife, Dirk, Puma, Wavy Blade. A very nice early dirk by the firm of Puma. The wavy blade has nearly all its plated finish with the tang area on both side having minor rust bleed, i presume from having rubbed against the top of the leather scabbard, the tip is nice but slightly blunted to the top needle, nice clear Puma trade mark to one side The handle is in nice condition with the two amber coloured segments without chips or cracks, pommel is tight to the tang, cross guard again secured without movement. The leather scabbard is supple but has a certain amount of loss to its finish, stitching is tight but the top loop is just held on by a few stitches, an easy fix. Dirk itself measures just over 9 inches. A nice example made more interesting with its wavy blade. NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S AND UK ONLY.
Vintage Fighting Knife, Dirk, The Army Gerneral Stores Ltd, Nottingham In very nice condition with the blade having staining and just the slightest of surface water markings and minor pitting near the tip, this if wanting could in my opinion be polished out. The blade has not been sharpened and the tang has clear markings for ''The Army General Stores, Nottingham. The handle is the type made to imitate a stag horn example, its either composite or bone, one small chip to the bottom near the cross guard but ive only just noticed it after years as it fits in nicely with the overall pattern, grips are held by three pins. Cross guard has a nickle appearance. Overall length is 10 inches. I myself would date this as an Edwardian example and its a first for me finding a dirk with such markings. Just the type to be sold in such stores to the Gentleman traveler of the time or British officer needing personal protection during his service. No scabbard sorry to say. WAS PRICED AT 150 NOT FOR SALE TO UNDER 18'S AND UK ONLY.

Vintage Leather Flying Helmet and Goggles. RFC. The leather helmet has seen better days that's for sure the front button having come adrift from the peak and one side ear cover having lost its tip and has been glued down. The other ear cover is complete but have not tried to undo the popper as im sure its been closed for a number of years. The actual cap body is complete with the leather having no holes just a certain lose in a couple of small areas to the top finish. the seal fur is thin to the peak but mostly complete to the inside. The helmet has its long side strap but the buckle end is missing, buckle still attached to the long end. The goggle again have seen better days with the glass being replaced by thin perspex of sorts, not sure if this would be period. All in all this makes a nice display piece and going from period photos its the sort of rig used by members of the RFC! If only it was somehow marked or dated then i could be 100% confident, but with the seal fur and panel construction id say 60/40 in my correct assumption! WAS PRICED AT 95
Vintage Police Helmet. KC Front Badge. This example has had a hard time with the cork body having been slightly crushed resulting to a split to one side and a deformed rear.

The nap to the black material is as expected better to the top of the cap, the red and white checkered border has a number of moth nips and faded colour. The 5th battalion cap badge is in nice condition with good detail, it appears to have been on the cap for some time as the checkered colour is much stronger underneath when the side of the badge is lifted slightly as is the nap to the material, i have not removed the badge.

May i add that the cap came with what appears to be a leather carrier, the cap just about fits inside and the central strap will just close shut over the cap, the cover has a good amount of age.

WW1 Group, Cinema ,60th Artizan Works Coy, 135th Army Troops, R.E. John Kingston from Pontypridd joined the R.E. in 1915 and ended up in France working as a what appears to be a ''Gofer'' for an officer who worked with cinema behind the front lines. Boulogne i believe is the area as that's the Depot that Kingston would purchase the goods needed, going by the four invoice's from the Expeditionary Forces Canteen found in the group. All invoices relate to items needed in working with cinema. There is no name to the Officer but he's attached to the 135th Army troops of the R.E. Also found in the grouping are four photos of Kingston, two as a youth one with his company training using boats and one nice full length uniform shot of Kingston over in France. The bible is annotated to Kingston by his local Sunday school and dated 1915. The interesting early swastika good luck pendant and chain, silver Victorian coin, match safe and ribbon bar are also found among the photos and papers as are the small number of RE uniform buttons and small portrait of his son. An interesting little lot to a soldier who worked with a little known section of the British military during WW1, the use of early cinema during this time in France is only now coming to light.

The only markings to be found can be seen stamped to the inside bottom right under the repair, i can make out the Numbers 191....... but i have a hard time trying to make out the last number, when i first purchased im sure it was 1915 but when taking pictures for the update im sure it was 1917! Anyway its an appealing example and would look just right for a trench display and it does remind me of the type used by Commonwealth forces.

WW2 Art Work, American Paratrooper Combat Jump. This is a large preparatory sketch for a much larger work done during the Second World War. The pencil sketch has been made on thick board and measures approximately 15x22 inches. The condition is very good considering its age with the corners having some knocks and minor storage marks. The bottom right corner does have some penciled details but its hard to make out , bottom has been cut with the lose of some wording. The central and most important image is clean with some nice detail and is IMO done in a good artistic hand. This work was a ''walk in'' into my local antique center from a local house clearance, with this was also found a modern print of what i believe is the finished work, now residing with family members in Australia. This copy of the work will stay with the pencil sketch when sold. Also found was another more finished ink work of the Liberator bomber seen at the top of the penciled sketch and one other finished work showing British MP's during the Invasion of Europe, sorry but that one is now on my wall! The name of the artist is Richard Cornick, sorry to say i cannot find a name on the sketch , but the the other work is and one other large 1930's watercolour of the inside of a church, this i will add with the pencil sketch. So what your purchasing is the very nice large perliminary para sketch, copy of the original art work and the church water colour.

The liner is again in very nice condition with no dryness or cracks, its maker marked and dated 1939 as is the helmet shell, chinstrap again in perfect condition. When i purchased this from the grandson of Police man who owned this helmet, inside was found a Secret Document on the Duties of the Police during the event of an Invasion, its named to the top, the owner of the helmet and signed to the bottom by a superintendent. A top example in my honest opinion.

WW2 German M16 Feuerschutzepolizei Helmet. This is a WW1 M16 combat helmet that was used during WW2 by the rescue service. Its had a rough coat of black finish, close to 100% remaining, brushed over the WW1 finish that can be seen in certain areas of damaged top coat. The inside skirt has also received a black over paint. Two of the period liner pins remain , one has been period replaced with a steel rivet of sorts. The early leather liner is in my opinion the original to the helmet going by the liner pin arms and the marks around this area. Two of the liner pads remain but there padding has gone, the front pad has been period repaired at some point, the type of period materials used can be clearly seen in what remains. I cannot make out any makers stamp due to the black over finish, some of the original WW1 finish can be made out to the inside crown. A good example of the expedient use of material used on the German Home Front.

WW2 German Silver Picture Brooch. Nice momento in the form of a small, around 2.5 inches high, Alpacco marked silver picture frame with hanging loop. The back has an interwined etched initials, perhaps from the names of both.

The steel scabbard has a nice amount of its black factory finish but has some loss wich has not turn a nice dark colour from patina. The leather frog appears to be its original example, its complete but im sorry to say both top rivets have come adrift so the top hanging area flops back on itself. I belive this is an early produced example as the trade name Horstator was an early form used by the firm E&F Horster.

WW2 R.A.S.C. Matchbox Safe. In very nice condition, some crazing to one side of the celluloid cover.
WW2 R.A.S.C. Officer's SD Jacket. Pre-War Example. A nice well used 1930's SD Jacket to an officer in the RASC. The date can be seen in the manufacture design with bellowed bottom pockets and the length of the tunic itself.Nice to have not only the dressing and watch pockets but also the leather tab for the Whistle chain. The condition is nice with all RASC buttons and officers collar dogs. There are a couple of moth nips and some wear to the button holes from use, interestingly there is damage and heavy wear inside both the top and bottom pockets on the right side, why i have no idea but in my opinion this must have taken a number of years of use and not from walking around the barracks! I can see that at some point a pinned ribbon bar was used above the left pocket. I must add that with this being an early and well used tunic there is evidence of at least two sets of holes on the collars and as seen more pips where added and removed during its service life.
WW2 RA Bronze Cap Badge, Uniform Buttons, Pips and Territorial Medal Document. All found together from a House clearance this week.
WW2 RAF Irvine Flying Jacket. New to the market, found this week in a local Cardiff house clearance and in very nice untouched condition. The leather to the body is in supple condition with no fraying or lifting to the surface finish, all leather straping between the leather pieces making up the body of the jcaket are tight without loose stitching. All zips with no missing teeth, the front zip pull is marked ''lightining'' and works fine its a bit tight, some oil will make the working easier. The arm zips have two diffrent makers, one is stuck again in need of some oil, the other needs the zip pull threaded through the other side of teeth, as mentioned no teeth missing so quite an easy job. The belt and buckle are fine with the belt still having it retaining strap and both armpits have the breathing grommets as expected. The inside fur, again like the outside,is in very nice condition with none missing from moth damage etc.To the top under the collar there is a clear Air Ministry Kings Crown label with stores code and a size mark 5, found above the label is its period chain. A super example that started out as a Costal Command example,this was factory tailored to an open collar as seen by the yellow paint to the rear of the collar being painted over with a brown finish the same time the jacket was manufactured. I can if you wish send name of the house owner were the jacket was found.

WW2 Royal Artillery Uniform Group. Named. Two uniforms to the same officer serving in the RA. The SD uniform is in nice condition with the jacket having all buttons to the front and pockets but missing the two on the shoulder boards, and bronze officer collar dogs, there are two small holes to the back area, one just under a shoulder board, the other on the back collar in the same area, lets say the size of a pea. No name and it would appear there never was one. The trousers have all buttons, some fraying to the pocket area and again two pea size moth holes. To the inside the name W.Richardson can be found twice written to the material. The blue uniform jacket has all its RA buttons, collar dogs and three pips, makers label states Cann Bros Exeter. The inside removable stiff collar is CC41 marked. The jacket material has around 8 small moth holes and the inside lining is in good condition. The red striped trousers have all buttons present and a very nice makers large CC41 makers label, the material has a few small moth nips. WAS PRICED AT 150.
WW2 Royal Naval Medal Group. Out of a local house clearance this week, details of the veteran on the box as his is number. The medal ribbons have been sewn together at the top perhaps for slipping over a bar for wear at some point.
WW2 Royal Naval Ratings Cap, HMS Daedalus, RNAS Lee-On-Solent. A nice well used RN ratings cap with cap tally for use on the RNAS Lee-on-Solent, HMS Daedalus. Its been blancoed in white numerous times of its history with some ending up to the lining inside. The tally with ''full stop'' is complete but a bit dirty and ends with a nice tight naval knot. As mentioned the inside is a bit grubby with blanco splatter and the cloth chinstrap is only just held together by a whisker. This example will display very well IMHO!

The blade has not be over sharpened and is clean with minimal staining, the handle is solid with the leather washers tight and supple , not having dried out.

Yellow British MKII Home Front Helmet. This civil defence helmet strated out having a black factory finish, its was then painted white and for whatever reason its final coat is a light yellow. The shell has a certain amount of scuffs were the white finish can be seen , no dents etc to the body. The liner is in nice used complete condition, no date but is maker and size marked, helmet chinstrap bale has a 1938 date stamp. Chinstrap is complete. The one thing i have noticed is that the yellow under certain light in the dark shows up a bright white but thats just an observation, as to why its painted yellow i cannot say.
