A fresh to the market and un-researched family group consisting of a Royal Observer Corps medal and a WW1 pair to a Sapper in the Royal Engineers.
The R.O.C 2nd type medal is correctly named to Leading Observer P.E.Dawson and remains in very good untouched condition, ribbon slightly dirty.
The Victory & BWM are lightly engraved/impressed to 126117 Sapper G.V.Dawson RE, both medals now with age related tarnishing, ribbons absent on both.
Recently discovered and untouched for decades.
More images available upon request.
A rare opportunity to acquire an original leather liner for a French M15 / M26 Adrian helmet.
This black leather liner is the 2nd Model with 6 tongues and in a good large size 59 (approx. 7 1/4).
Even though this is a well worn looking liner it remains surprisingly supple and with a little amount of work/leather food could be improved or left as seen, there is evidence of some old insect infestation/holes on the upturned rim but no major damage.
The stitching attaching the tongues remains in good order with no breaks.
Leather part only, felt outer band now absent.
Overseas/EU customers please be aware that from the 1st January 2021 new customs regulations will be put in place, also please be aware of postal delays and that possible duty,taxes & clearance fees may incur on your purchases before you receive them.
An untouched early WW1 French M15 Adrian helmet bearing an artillery branch of service badge.
The helmet retains much of its original factory applied Horizon blue paint finish, externally there is some age related wear along with some very light rust peppering bleeding through.
The side skirts are the inter-locking variant without rivets indicating manufacture by the firm `JAPY'.
The early black & brown leather liner is the multi-piece constructed 2nd pattern with 6 tongues (3 now fragile with some loss), the 1st pattern having 7 tongues.
The often missing aluminium plaquettes (corrugated sheets) are still present along with its original chinstrap.
A nice looking been there item.
A good example of a Luftwaffe 1kg incendiary bomb tail fin that bears a sticker stating that it was recovered after been dropped on Warrington ( 20 miles east of Liverpool).
Sorry UK sale only.
A most pleasing and scarce Indian-made Southern Provinces Mounted Rifles side cap from the inter-war / WW2 period.
The cap is in excellent condition and free from any moth / Infestation damage, it also retains its original S.P.M.R white metal buttons and quality made sand cast badge (with horn/bugle facing correct way for this unit), it would appear that the original owner wrongly positioned the cap badge and then relocated it to its current and correct position leaving two small holes but these are hardly noticeable, the distance between lugs matches perfectly so done in error and not a later added badge.
The liner is also in good order and retains its original size tab this being a good size 7 1/8th.
The S.P.M.R were part of the AFI (Auxiliary Forces India) cavalry and were dis-banded in 1947.
A good condition early model Belgian FN Type A bayonet with its distinctive double pronged flash hider.
The 200mm double edged blade is in clean condition (slight snub to tip) with much of its short sheradized section still remaining, flash hider in good order with no distortion to prongs, MRD 15.5mm, early type curved release catch with small hole.
The black painted steel scabbard is in good order with no dings, usual signs of wear/scratches.
The wooden grip scales are also in clean condition with only minor dings on one edge.
Sorry mainland UK sale only, photo ID will be required before being despatched, 18+ years of age only.
An excellent pair of 1955 dated British ammo boots in a large size 10 S, these are identical to wartime issue boots.
The uppers are in wonderful condition with hardly any sign of use, the soles are also in very good order with only light wear.
Sold as display/mannequin item only.
