RAF Navigator's Bag
Stores reference 1A/3927. By Waring & Gillow Ltd. The ultra-rare light green canvas holdall used by the Navigator to carry the chartboard, maps, parallel rules, pencils, protractors, compasses etc. Approx. 50 x 50cm with flapped pockets to both sides and two carrying handles. Manufacturer's marks, war department broad arrow marked and dated 1943.
The heavy cotton canvas is very faded and has marks and stains. It is generally in good/sound condition but one of the side pockets has a couple of small holes and there is further damage to the 'flap' and handle on the same side - see photos. Clearly well used but still a great display piece. These bags are always highly sought after and rarely turn up. In better condition this would cost around £350.
