RAF snakebite Lancet tool in chromed metal. By Gardner & Co. London. Issued with various survival kits and the lightweight flying suit better known as the 'Beadon' suit. One end unscrews to reveal a short flat blade. The other end houses a small capsule containing potassium permanganate which could be applied to the wound once the venom had been removed. #ww2 #raf #snakebite #venom #firstaidkit #junglesurvival #survival #beadonsuit #lancet #1940s #medicalinstrument #medical #pilot #aircrew #jungle #historicflyingclothingcompany #airministry

RAF Prestige flying suit. These unlined cotton one-piece suits were worn in the 30s and early stages of the war. Favoured by fighter pilots, especially those of the university air squadrons who went on to the auxiliary air force prior to the war and into the Battle of France and Britain.  Various manufacturers produced them and all are extremely sought after and very hard to find.  This example is by Bleacraft in sanforized cotton and was marketed by Moss Bros of Covent Gdn. in London.  It has the short 'madarin' style stand collar and zipped front, cuffs, ankles and lower leg pockets.  All zips are original 'Lightning' brand. The loose belt is absent which is also common.  At some stage the owner had rank epaulettes fitted - the loops for these are still present as are the RAF buttons on the chest pockets.

Luftwaffe Ruckenfallschirm RH-28 back type parachute. This model was introduced in January 1944 and intended for use by aircrew in longer range aircraft although I understand they were also used in the FW190 & Me262. The German airborne troops used a similar parachute but that wasn't fitted with a ripcord handle as it was used as a 'static-line' assembly for troops bailing out of an aircraft (fallschirmjager/paratroopers). The RH-28 used a green webbing and a pack with an aluminium tray similar to the RH-12B back-type. Most unusual are the three snap buckles with press release mechanisms and the ripcord fitted with a large ball-like end grip. Condition is generally very good. It is complete bar the actual canopy and only has a couple of the bungee straps used to pull the pack open in the event of a bail-out. There is minor paint loss on the pack tray and some corrosion of metal parts but nothing serious. All the buckles function correctly and the ripcord assembly is complete. These are extremely scarce as only made in small numbers.

Staying with my brother​ near Wells in Somerset for a few days. Quick trip to the coast yesterday. After a bracing cliff top coastal walk we had an artery clogging cream tea in Lyme Regis, Dorset. Very tasty! #creamtea #dorset #dorsetcoast #jurassiccoast #goldencap #broadchurch #lymeregis #afternoontea #wells

First World War Centenary Sculpture 'Poppies Weeping Window' at the Old Silk Mill in Derby. From the installation 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' - poppies and original concept by Derby artist Paul Cummins and installation designer Tom Piper - by Paul Cummins Ceramics Ltd in conjunction with the Historic Royal Palaces, originally at The Tower of London in 2014. Each ceramic poopy handmade and used to represent a life lost in the Great War. Beautiful sculpture with the poppies cascading down the Silk Mill tower from the top window opening. Lest we forget...
