R.A.F. \'Mosquito\' / Desert Pattern Flying Boots

Size 7. Unlined green suede calf length boots with leather soles. The suede is quite clean and in good condition. The boots retain the drawstrings at the top - these were used to enable a secure fit in order to prevent insect attack. The original soles and heels show little wear. Interestingly they have had Blakey\'s metal heel and toe protectors added. War Department, Broad Arrow marked. As is often the case there are no obvious Air Ministry markings on these. Although this pattern of boot was used by aircrews it was really intended for ground personnel/wear. Difficult to obtain and often found in poor condition. Very good used condition. Stock code B15222.
