Exceptional RAF service dress tunic by Gieves dated 10/42 named to Flight Lieutenant.

When it comes to quality tailoring of unfjorms. there is none better than Gieves, and this is a quite superb example of a Gieves RAF service dress jacket. Named to B.C. Cobley and dated 10/42, the tunic features a lovely heavily padded pilot wing brevet and medal ribbons to the chest. Evidently while owning this tunic Cobley was promoted from Flying officer to Flight Lieutenant, because the two rows of rank lace do not match. Excellent condition showing very light wear and no sign of  moth or any other damage or excessive wear. A Great display example.

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.

Luftwaffe early war service dress tunic (Tuchrock) to the rank of staff sergeant, flight.

 

An outstanding example of an early wartime Luftwaffe service dress tunic to a staff sergeant (NCO) in the flying branch. Very high quality (officer grade) wool with a satin lining, privately tailored and featuring French cuffs, sewn in shoulder boards and yellow twisted cord piping as well as yellow backed rank insignia. A ribbon for the Iron Cross second class is sewn through the top button hole, and there are numerous loops for awards, qualification badges etc. The right breast shows a lovely early droop-tailed eagle. The condition is simply amazing, with no visible wear. 100% original, this was sourced by the seller from a well known authority in the UK. This magnificent tunic would be impossible to upgrade, which is reflected in the asking price.

Luftwaffe other ranks visor cap, privately purchased, flying  branch.

 

A lovely example of a privately purchased other ranks / enlisted visor cap, most likely worn by a senior NCO / flight crew or pilot. Officer grade material with a cream satin lining, leather sweatband, ersatz visor with green checkerboard pattern underneath and ersatz chin strap. Good insignia and lovely high front with gentle back slope appearance. There is a very small amount of surface wear at the back/top of the cap, no holes but a couple of very, small, light tracks, however is doesn't show and is not a detraction. Sweatshield is intact and light staining inside, but overall very good+ condition.

Excellent Luftwaffe officer's visor cap by Erel.

 

A very good, early Luftwaffe officer's visor cap with the famed and desirable Erel make mark on the sweatshield. Top quality material throughout with no damage to the wool and light wear / sweat staining inside the tan satin lining. Aluminium piping and chin cords are excellent, as is the wire insignia which includes an interesting early droop-tail eagle. The cockade is of the metal type with mat black outer ring. Good ersatz visor with wear to green underside. A very good, gently worn example of this early cap by the most sought after of makers.

Extremely rare Luftwaffe enlisted man's visor cap for the esteemed Hermann Göring Regiment.

 

Original examples of this rare cap very rarely surface, and this example is in absolutely superb condition. Made from officer quality gabardine wool and featuring the white waffenfarbe of the Hermann Göring Regiment, the cap has a polished visor with green checkerboard pattern underneath and a patent leather chin strap. The orange cotton lining with undamaged sweatshield lists a Berlin maker, size 56-1/2 and a date of 1938. Light tan leather sweatband shows only light wear and there is very light soiling to the white piping from handling. Aluminium eagle and winged cockade, with painted finish showing light wear. An outstanding example of a very rare and highly-desirable cap.

AAF officer's visor cap in chocolate felt with patent leather visor and chin straps..

 

Extremely clean US Army officer's visor cap, typical of the type favoured by AAF officers, with matching front and rear chin straps. The visor and chin straps are high gloss patent leather, perhaps indicating late war or possibly just after, but a lovely example nonetheless. The cap is doeskin felt of the dark green often referred to as "chocolate". A lovely example.

Absolutely superb RAF other ranks beret, dated 1945 and fitted with the wartime economy version of the cap badge in black bakelite/plastic.

Two piece construction with a seam around the crown and at the back; diagonal quilted cotton lining with waterproof layer in between and leather edge. Impossible to upgrade.

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.

Cold War era RN Fleet Air Arm "Baseball" style cap.

 

First and only example of this I have ever seen!  Dark blue baseball cap with a lovely gilt and enamel Fleet Air Arm pilot wing  (Queen's crown) to front, gold "chin cord", oak leaves/scrambled eggs to peak.  Shows quite a bit of wear though no damage. Not an official item but I'm sure it's got a few stories!

Stunning Luftwaffe officer's summer white top visor cap.

 

This Luftwaffe officer's white top summer cap is simply stunning.  Fabulous shape, showing the crushed look by removing the stiffeners from inside, and showing just enough use and wear to have "been there" - but no damage or excessive wear. Well padded white top is detachable for washing. Beautiful, heavy aluminium bullion wire wreath and cockade, with wire eagle on white backing. Correct twisted aluminium wire chin cords. Grey leather sweatband, white satin lining and good diamond sweat-shield with maker's information. Made in Berlin and most likely cost a fortune. Highly desirable - an absolute beauty.

WWI Royal Naval Air Service Chief Petty Officer's cap.

 

Any RNAS uniform items are scarce, and visor/peaked caps are among the most prized uniform items. Here is a really excellent example of a CPO service dress cap. Dark blue/black wool top, with patent leather peak and chin strap, mohair band and bullion/velvet padded badge. Red silk lining with maker's crest and leather sweatband. Shows use but overall very good condition. there is one tiny nip/separation on the top at the edge which is difficult to see. Patent leather has aged and lost its sheen, but a great example of this rare cap.

Luftwaffe enlisted man's belt and buckle.

 

Very good example of a Luftwaffe enlisted man's belt and belt buckle. Blackened leather belt shows use but no wear or damage - marked size 95. Buckle with eagle/wreath retains 90% original dark painted finish, with minor wear on the high spots. Oddly no tab on buckle (either removed or never there) but doesn't affect functionality. ​ It might be a Heer (Army) belt modified for Luftwaffe use, but if so, this was done a long time ago.

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. 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. 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.

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.

As with most enlisted uniforms it is not names but does have a number inside. However, inside the top pocket were several forms of ID naming it to Braxton P. Gordon, at various ranks from corporal to sergeant to captain - so he was evidently commissioned in the field. Hard to beat for condition.

Standard AAF officer's tunic with collar devices and lieutenant's bars, plus superb feltXII Tactical Air Command patch to left upper arm.  This is one of the last OD AAF tunics made  before switching to blue: label inside pocket indicates 1947 production based on 1942 pattern.

AAF enlisted OD wool trousers.

 

One of the hardest uniform accessory items to find, because most were used and worn after the war. This pair, in a decent size (30 waist, 31 inside leg) are in unissued condition with no wear or damage that I can find. Great label dated 1943.  Very difficult to upgrade.

RARE US Special Forces Green Beret named to a Vietnam era sniper.

 

1972 dated green beret manufactured by Dorothea Knitting Mills, Toronto, Canada (as were all US green berets), named to D. Maclean. Inside are several notations in white: SAT CONG (kill Cong) and OSOK (one-shot-one-kill) with cross hairs and tally of what looks like 43 kills. This is from an old collection and needs a lot more research than I can provide, but insignia appears to be genuine and beret is 100% correct. A superb and extremely rare item for the Vietnam collector.

WWII dated RAF PT Shorts.

 

A seldom found accessory for an airman's kit. Blue grey cotton shorts used with a white t-shirt for PT every morning. In very good condition. This airman had the good sense to replace the drawstring tie with elastic which retains its stretch. Size 36 waist and well marked with a 1942 date. Very good condition.

WWII AAF named Second Lieutenant's khaki service uniform MAAF.

 

Very good example of the khaki/summer weight overseas uniform jacket named to a Lieutenant serving with the Mediterranean Allied Air Forces. Good period winged props, US devices and "butter bar" insignia plus a nice MAAF shoulder patch. Clear evidence of a clutch back wing having been fitted. Named to James Morrison on the laundry tag pinned inside. I can find one pinhead sized moth nip in the shoulder (practically invisible). Jacket displays nicely and would be worthy of research.

Army Air Corps officer's 1930s uniform, named to a Major.

Interesting and unusual early Army Air Corps officer's uniform. Olive Drab gabardine wool with built-in belt, gilt buttons and a lovely pair of early winged propellor collar devices. Sadly all other insignia removed, though the impression of there they were is clear. Inside are two labels, one to the tailor in san Antoio, Texas, and the other a standard union label with the name of the office, which appears to be a major, though the last name is worn and difficult to read. Jacket is dusty, slightly grubby and has a few moth nips, but is definitely worthy of careful study and research. The lining is intriguing and appears at first glance to have been removed, yet it is neatly finished and sows no cutting or damage - it might even have had a button-in section. The winged props alone are worth most of the asking price.

Royal Saudi Arabian Air Force Tropical Combat Coat.

 

An unusual US Air Force "Man's Tropical Combat Coat" issued to a member of the Royal Saudi Arabian Air Force for joint operations in the Persian Gulf. 1980s. Great patches. This is not my area of interest or expertise but it's a good looking named jacket which might be worth researching and certainly belongs in any Gulf War collection.

British Army officer's sidecap with Royal West Kent Regt. badge.

 

Excellent officer's sidecap with a beautiful slider-back cap badge of the Royal West Kent Regiment. No wear or damage but some staining to the interior. Badge and GS buttons appear to be WWI era and this may have belonged to someone serving in the Home Guard 1940-43.

Cold War era RNZAF battledress blouse dated 1964.

 

Royal New Zealand Air Force battledress blouse of the postwar (1947 pattern) dated 1964. Made from the same blue serge wool as WWII examples but with the different flap pockets, streamlined collar and lapels and QC "sta-brite" buttons. Embroidered eagles to upper arms and nice sergeant's stripes to both sleeves. Made in New Zealand. New Zealand uniforms are quite scarce, and this example, though not wartime, is in very good condition.

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.

AAF 5th AF enlisted man's uniform Ike jacket, trousers, overseas cap and tie.

 

A lovely piece of history to a man who served with the 5th Air Force - and with a name and good selection of medal ribbons, worthy of researching. The uniform has been stored since the end of the war, but sadly, moths or similar insects fond their way to it. It has some damage, though in fairness it could be a lot worse. See photos for details and please ask questions. jacket has 5th AF patch, collar devices, engineer's sleeve badge, "ruptured duck"  and chevrons for private 1st class. Cap has early heavy style blue/yellow piping and fabulous red satin lining - named to Stimson with service number. Trousers are high quality doeskin felt and have the least amount of mothing - a couple of holes at the top near the fly but otherwise very good. Tie has some stains. Overall the uniform displays OK and could no doubt be improved, but sold as is.

USAF 1950s ike jacket and trousers to Senior Pilot.

While many WWII AAF veterans who stayed in the service were literally dragged, kicking and screaming, into the new "US Air Force" and its blue uniforms, others accepted it but retained their insignia, rightfully, as badges of honor. This is such a uniform. A superb USAF blue ike jacket and trousers, c.1950, complete with senior pilot wings, a splendid and impressive rack of medal ribbons, and both 9th AF and CBI patches to proudly display his WWII service. Captain's bars and silver US collar devices.  Wing is not sterling marked and star has been added separately (and does appear to have tarnished as silver would). Super large size. Represents the early jet age era well. The wing alone is worth the lion's share of the asking price.

WWII WAC Medic tunic, named and ID'd to Selman Field, training field for WASPs.

Far less common than men's uniforms, women's uniforms are identical except for the cut and the fact that they button left-over-right. This is a lovely example of a WAC medic tunic, with medical collar devices, major's rank insignia and felt AAF patch with Training Command shoulder flash. Named inside to E.B. McBee with her service number and Selman Field Exchange. Also has a fabulous personal monogram with the initials E.M. Selman Field was a training field for navigators and also for WASP pilots so it would make perfect sense for a female medic to be posted there. This is well worth further research. Excellent condition and quite scarce.

WWII era French Air Force Flight Medic/Nurse/Rescue Pilot uniform jacket.

 

Tunic from a Nurse/Medic Rescue Pilot (IPSA:  Infirmière Pilote Secours de l'Air). The IPSA were created in 1934, trained as both medics and pilots in order to treat, evacuate and transport wounded soldiers (as pilots and nurses). After WWII they were flew only as nurses and took part in both the Indochina and the Algerian War. Though identical to early examples, this tunic was most likely made between 1945 and 1950. Nonetheless a rare and interesting uniform jacket.

WWII US Army dress uniform jacket and trousers for a graduate of West Point.

Superb, high quality US Army dress uniform jacket and trousers for a graduating West Point cadet, purchased from the Cadet Store and named to R. J. Rogers. Dated 5.22.1939 that means he completed 

officer training before the war. The trousers have no markings that I can find. It would be very interesting to research his career and see where he finished up. Uniform is in excellent condition, and displays very well.

AAF Glider Pilot / Troop Carrier 4-pocket tunic, named with fantastic bullion Glider Pilot wing.

 

USAAF officer's style 4-pocket tunic, made in San Antonio and named to James B. Reed who must have bought the uniform while training at Hondo, Texas, Class 44-8. Lovely bullion glider pilot wing and felt AAF shoulder patch, plus 1st Troop Carrier DIs on both epaulettes together with enamel Flight Officer "blue pickle" insignia. Once he completed his training and graduated as a Glider pilot he will have received a commission so to find a tunic still with the "blue pickles" and the wing attached is quite unusual.  Some moth damage to left lower sleeve and skirt of tunic which does not detract too much. Definitely worth researching.

Pre-WWII French Air Force officer's cap with detachable white cover.

 

Pre-war, 1929 pattern officer's cap for a junior officer in L'Armee de L'Air for a pilot or flight crew member. Hat is in very good condition overall. Good composite peak/visor, black silk lining with cellophane sweat diamond and leatherette sweatband, both of which have some slight damage from drying out but this does not detract. No damage or wear to wool cap, which is covered with a white cotton top for summer wear to which the winged cap badge is attached by small snaps/poppers. 

Some staining to the white cotton at the edges. A lovely example of an early French Air Force officer's cap of the type worn during the fall of France and the Battle of Britain.

Lovely example of a transitional AAF to USAF green uniform for an officer who flew in WWII with the 12th Reconnaissance Squadron.

 

OD gabardine wool 4 pocket tunic, tailored in 1949 (2 years after the AAF became the USAF and were supposed to change to wearing blue!).

RAF/RCAF Other Ranks' Field Service Cap (sidecap) dated 1940.

 

Great Battle of Britain item. This Canadian made Field Service Cap (sidecap) was never even completed by having either buttons or a badge attached. Perhaps it was destined for England and RAF issue - it is dated 1940 and is in unworn, unissued perfect condition.

WWII US Navy officer's cap with superb multi-piece badge.

Lovely example of a lightweight US Navy officer's white top cap, in excellent condition, though lacking the leather sweatband (easily replaced but not necessary for display). White cotton top, patent leather leather peak with green checkerboard backing and light basketwork frame. Its best feature however, is the stunning, heavy multi-piece badge with embroidered label to back indicating Hillborn & Hamburger, Inc. of New York. A lovely cap marked size 7-1/4.

WWII US Army enlisted man's sidecap large size 7-5/8 dated 1940.

 

Excellent and unissued example of a US Army enlisted man's sidecap, summer version in unlined tan cotton, with a superb QM label dated March 14, 1940 and in a huge size 7-5/8.  This is the exact type worn by all Army Air Corps enlisted personnel. Hard to find in this size and condition.

Absolutely mint condition, unissued RCAF Other Ranks service dress tunic dated 1942.

 

Quite literally the most perfect, unissued and unworn example of a WWII Other Ranks service dress tunic I have ever seen. 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 which curiously enough have been applied the wrong way around (eagles facing front instead of rear) which may explain why this tunic was never issued! Includes correct RCAF buttons and matching detachable belt, and it has a crisp and clear stamp inside denoting manufacture and date of 1942. A fantastic find! Impossible to upgrade.

WWII US Navy aircrew midshipman's visor cap plus a wonderful and extensive grouping of accessories all named with photos etc. 

 

Hard-to-find accessories for completing a uniform display.

Green cover has some nothing but not too bad. Also includes several pairs of socks, 2 ties, 2 belts, set of unused USN buttons still in the box, superb hand-tinted photo of him wearing the cap, ID bracelet, fabulous Art Deco style leather wallet, medal ribbons, several old badges. Also includes a beautiful sterling set of boxed aircrew wings which came with this set and were originally listed separately. All items are named to F.G. Buehler (or FGB), except kit bag which is named to Robert Buehler - perhaps a relative? This is how it arrived so I don;t want to break it up.
