F.S. Form 19.  Issued to Corporal T. Roberts, 210914, who enlisted in January 1916.  It details the kit available for issue including 'Thigh Boots' (Fug boots), 'Caps, Fur Lined', 'Goggle Mask' etc.  Roberts appears to have been issued only with some basic things including a Greatcoat, lanyard, button stick, razor etc. in 1918.  Unusual early card, print date January 1918, not Royal Flying Corps or Royal Air Force marked, but 'Air Forces'.  Fascinating little document issued to a pilot during the end of the RFC and infancy of the RAF.  Lightly soiled but in good used condition.  Stock code P26852.
