RAF MK1A Bone Dome Helmet, G Type Flying Inner an
Really neat full set of flying gear thats all in very good condition. The Dome Bone has its original silver finish, some marks from use, the inside has all its green webbing and is marked MK1A[M] Size 3, it has a stores ref' number and i belive a 1970's date. The visor is in good working condition with little surface wear. No chinstrap. The G type cloth flying helmet again in very good condition with only 2 small moth nips that have not gone thru the material, leather inner ear pads are in perfect condition as is the wiring loom. Inside cloth tag is broad arrow marked and again it looks like a 1970 code date. The black plastic oxygen mask is very good supple condition and the inner mic has varoius marks, made by the firm ''normalair'', cannot find a date. A super complete set and ready for display.
WW1 1914 Dated British Union Jack.
Nice dated multi stitched Union Jack, its survived in very good condition but it does have numerous moth nips to the material but nothing that makes the flag fragile and unusable, the material is still strong. The top is clearly marked 1914 and has a London makers mark, the strong hanging lanyard is in very good condition complete with both heavy brass hooks. Its front door size as seen in my picture.
1907 Hooked Quillion Bayonet, CLL Marked Pommel.
1909 dated quillion 1907 bayonet thats in super condition, the pommel is marked to the Duke of Cornwal Light Infantry and is bayonet number 615 matches the number to the throat of the scabbard. Blade has a slight staining but not much, same goes for the other metal fittings. Blade is marker marked for the ENFIELD maker. Edward crown above the date 1907, produced in March. Wooden slab grips in very good condition, no chips or knocks. Leather scabbard is again in very good condition and is Enfield marked. This is a very rare bayonet to get in this condition and all the better for having its original issued scabbard and matching numbers to bayonet and scabbard. Sorry , UK and over 18's sale only.
Rare 1907 Quillion Bayonet, 3rd Welsh Regiment.
Super condition and rare example of the 1907 quillon bayonet, this one is dated 1910 and marked to the pommel top to the 3rd Welsh regiment, the regimental number 751 is one digit down from the number on the scabbard throat. The scabbard has a matching date of 1910. It would be very hard to up grade this bayonet. FOR SALE TO OVER 18's AND UK ONLY.
British SOE Tyre Slasher Type Knife.
Same type as the SOE knife exept for no tyre slasher, i have checked the internet for these examples and they do seem to be sold as such, even one site puts these down as Norweigan issued examples, this one is unmarked as expected. Anyway , condition is good but well used, blade will not lock , no damage to the grips.
