RAF other ranks service dress trousers.

Quite difficult to find, especially in good condition, because these hard wearing wool trousers were often kept and worn after the war. This pair is in excellent condition, with original early brass dished buttons (though some appear to have have been resewn). No label but there is an ink stamp inside the waistband, although it is difficult to read. These are correct wartime pattern and would compliment any wartime service dress blouse/jacket. No sign of mothing or anything but very light wear.

RAF other ranks trouser braces.

Often hard-to-find accessory for a uniform display. These braces (suspenders in the USA) were standard issue in all branches of the service. No markings but I have seen the exact same type with Air Ministry stamps and wartime dates. No elastic - cotton webbing tapes with blue-grey painted metal clips and leather hangers for the trouser buttons. Excellent condition.

Absolutely mint condition, unissued RCAF Other Ranks service dress tunic with the rare, early faux French cuffs.

 

Quite literally the most perfect, unissued and unworn example of a WWII Other Ranks service dress tunic I have ever seen, Canadian made and labeled to a tailor in Montreal, the jacket has the early faux French cuffs (double stitching a few inches above the cuff to resemble a tuned back cuff). Faux French cuffs were phased out on RAF OR jackets in 1940 but evidently this tailor continued the practice because this jacket is dated 1942. The small white tacking stitches used by the tailor are still in place, as is the small white tacking cross-stitch on the rear vent. It has never had any insignia attached, except for the shoulder flashes/eagles (applied the wrong way around - eagles facing front instead of rear).  RCAF buttons and matching detachable belt.  A fantastic find! Impossible to upgrade.

RCAF wireless operator's tunic dated 1940.

Very good used example of a RCAF other ranks 4-pocket service dress uniform jacket with sergeant's stripes, Canada shoulder flashes and a nice embroidered wireless operator's "hand and thunderbolts" badge which was worn by aircrew until replaced by the WO or WAG half wing in 1942. Tunic is maker marked Ritchie, Harber & Co and dated 1940. A good early piece showing some wear and a small but neat repair to the right cuff, but otherwise no visible damage, just overall slightly worn and perhaps a little dusty. Lacks belt. Early examples are quite hard to come by.

RAF Suits, aircrew, blouse for an Observer dated 1943.

First introduced in 1941, the RAF version of the army's "battledress" was authorized exclusively for aircrew, and only to be worn while on ops. As such, it was technically a flying suit. Fitted with metal buttons (one later wartime plastic replacement) and has pleats at the back. This example has a good 1943 dated label and is in very good overall condition, except for a small amount of white residue on the right sleeve. Not sure if it's paint or what - I have not attempted to clean or brush this off bit I think it would clean. Blouse has Canada shoulder titles and lovely Canadian made swept Observer wing.

Immediate postwar RAAF battledress blouse to a Canadian flight lieutenant.

Dark (navy) blue battledress blouse of the Royal Australian Air Force dating from 1946-52 - the postwar cut but pre-1952 with KC buttons. Has Canada shoulder titles which are machine sewn on and evidence there once was a pilot wing above the left breast pocket. Great condition but no ID (label appears to have been removed).

RAF tropical khaki uniform tunic by Gieves, early postwar.

 

Exxcellent high quality RAF tropical khaki service dress tunic named and dated 1954. Features rare KC anodized buttons (later known as Sta-Brite) maker marked to Gaunt of London. KC anodized buttons are quite scarce - introduced in 1950 but not generally available until 1954; the fact that this tunic is dated 1954 and still has KC buttons is very curious. Also has a superb quality QC pilot wing, heavily padded and with a pin back, plus WWII medal ribbons including a DFC. Named on the Gieves label inside to S.W. Cutbill. Flight Lieutenant shoulder boards. The sleeves appear to have been lengthened, including moving the scalloped cuffs.  An excellent jacket, and well worth researching for the obvious WWII history of Flt. Lt. Cutbill.

WWII Australian made Bush Shirt/Jacket.

 

Excellent Australian made example of the Aertex Bush shirt/jacket, complete with its matching belt. Fitted with detachable black plastic RAF/RAAF buttons and has a great linen label in the neck.  There is a faint ink stamp alongside the label with a date that looks like 1950 so this may have been issued or reissued later - but is definitely WWII pattern.

Post WWII RAF other ranks peaked cap.

 

Identical to the wartime issue (which was only worn by RAF police and other special units) this cap is an excellent early example, well marked and dated 1952, the first year it would have been issued with the Queen's Crown badge. Blue serge wool with piped seam, faux leather chin strap and peak with mohair band. Leather sweatband.

RCAF canvas and leather shoes by GP dated 1942.

Superb and unissued pair of RCAF canvas and leather shoes made by Gutta Percha company and dated 1942. Not sure of their exact purpose - could be for wear on balloons / dirigibles or flying boats.  Standard Oxford type shoes with blue grey canvas uppers and leather toecaps, leather soles. Size 10.5 with crisp Broad Arrow "C" stamp on sole and Gutta Percha inside with clear 1942 date. Unworn with only light storage marks, these would be difficult to upgrade.

RAF Warrant Officer Flight Engineer's service dress jacket dated 1945.

 

Nice example of an issue pattern RAF service dress uniform for a warrant officer, tailored in blue barathea wool with a blue/grey satin lining, good 1945 dated label and a nicely worn heavily-padded Flight Engineer's brevet to the left chest. Worn wings always suggest use while on operations, because the parachute harness would tend to rub the silk thread (even if a mae west is worn). Jacket shows use but no excessive wear or damage. The wool has that nice "shiny" look in a few places. Sadly no name but flight engineer uniforms are not too common in my experience.

RAF War Service Dress blouse dated 1945, modified to open lay-flat collar.

Quite a rare variation of the standard War Service Dress blouse. Dated 1945, this would have been manufactured and worn with a standing collar that could be fastened up to the neck. Some officers and senior NCOs  would have their tailor modify the neck to an open "lay-flat" collar, which was finally introduced as standard in later, post-war patterns. This is an example of a wartime blouse which has been modified, very nicely (though somewhat roughly on the inside). It has also had some period repairs to the back, which again have been very nicely done so as to be almost invisible. An interesting and scarce modification. All good period insignia including a nice flat Navigator brevet.

Royal Canadian Signals Corps fatigue shirt/jacket.

Probably dating from the 1970s or later, this green fatigue shirt/jacket bears  RC Signals shoulder flashes (used by the Royal Canadian Signals Corps) and corporal's stripes on both arms. Seems to be made of the lightweight "ventile" type cotton fabric first introduced in the 1950s. Slanted breast pockets for spare magazine clips, large bellows pockets on the skirt. Button front and large, heavy plastic button fastening to all pockets. Label has been removed from inside but jacket is otherwise in excellent used condition.

WWII issue Service Dress tunic to a Warrant Officer pilot.

WWII issue Service Dress tunic to a Warrant Officer pilot. Officer quality tailoring from fine barathea wool, yet this is an issue uniform rather than privately tailored. While officers were generally expected to provide their own uniforms from private tailors, other ranks and NCOs, being less well paid, were supplied from RAF stores. Since Warrant Officers were senior NCOs who wore officers' uniforms, they were provided with officer quality materials. These were not common and don't turn up on the collector market all that often. Though not named, this Warrant Officer's SD tunic is a beautiful example of an issue "officer grade" uniform, and includes a lovely well-padded pilot wing brevet.

Royal Marine Commandos green beret.

Very good and rare example of the Royal Marine Commandos green beret with pre-1952 cap badge. Manufactured by  Compton Sons and Webb, though the name is partially faded and obscured by glue residue from what looks like a piece of tape - perhaps a name tag or label. It looks to be a size 6-3/4 and the board arrow mark is legible, as is a partial date, ending in a "3". This could be 1943 but could also be 1953, although the badge is pre-1952 and has clearly been on the beret for a long time. Not sold as WWII because it cannot be guaranteed, but a great and rare piece of headgear in very good used condition.

Absolutely superb RAF other ranks beret, dated 1945 and fitted with the wartime economy version of the cap badge in black bakelite/plastic. Nice clear markings inside with maker, date and WD arrow stamp. Usually these berets have indications of moth or insect damage, this one is exceptional in having absolutely no wear or damage.

RAF wool sweater/pullover dated 1941.

 

Blue-grey knitted wool jumper or sweater with a V-neck designed for wearing under the service dress uniform without being seen, also giving aircrews an additional layer of warmth when flying. Overall condition is very good, and it may even be unissued, although it does have a  small hole on the right sleeve and a small amount of tracking/tiny holes to the front (looks worse in the close up photos than it actually is because of the light/shadows). Like many uniform accessories, these are very scarce, because as a nice, quality garment, many of them were kept and worn long after the war. This example retains its original Air Ministry label, dated 1941.  Note, this was an official issued item, not a private purchase or "Comforts Committee" donation.

Excellent high quality full dress uniform tunic and trousers to a Major in the British Army Intelligence Corps who was also a qualified RAF pilot, perhaps from WWII, since the tunic has a gorgeous pair of bullion on blue wool dress RAF pilot wings and a nice row of WWII medal ribbons. Tunic is labeled to a base tailor in Newcastle  Upon Tyne. All good insgnia with anodized QC buttons (QC pilot wing). Includes matching dark blue bool trousers with green stripe at the sides. Both items in extremely good condition. Would be worth doing some research.

RAF 1972 pattern other ranks short jacket.

 

A very shortlived design for uniform jacket for Other ranks in the 1970s. Made from barathea wool of officer grade, the jacket had a zip front and 2 diagonal zip pockets to the chest. It proved to be unpopular and was quickly withdrawn. This example is in good condition, with no damage or mothing, though the main zip puller is missing and rank stripes (looks like corporal) have been removed leaving threads behind. If nothing else, the material could be used for repairs and patching an older uniform.
