R.A.F. 1940 Pattern Flying Boots - History


Stores Ref. 22c/438. Size 8. The brown suede uppers are in very good condition showing light use/soiling only. The rubber “galosh” sections are largely complete but hardening/cracking (fine for display but unsuitable for use). Excellent Air Ministry marked Lightning zips with A.M. stamped leather zip tongues. Good original soles and heels. The linings are good and complete with insoles. Named to the owner and originally purchased directly from him. He flew with 33 Squadron as a pilot on Tempest and Typhoon aircraft. A decent pair of these increasingly rare boots. Please note that these are genuine 1940 pattern boots, not 1941 pattern with the ankle straps removed. Stock code B15251.
