RAF 1936 pattern flying boots

RAF 1936 pattern flying boots

Code: B24512

SOLD

Stores reference 22c/80.  Size 7.  1939 contract date.  The leather is generally in very good condition bar some surface cracks and light scuffing around the foot.  Good straps and buckles. Original leather soles and heelplates - both worn but in sound condition.   Some loss of fur at the top edges of the boots and other small areas but they are generally good.  Complete with insoles.  The puller tags in both boots have clear Air Ministry King's Crown markings, 1939 date code and A.I.D. marks.  These are supposed to have been worn by a glider pilot who took part in Operation Market Garden and I have a letter explaining the connection but cannot prove the story.  A very good used pair of these rare early boots.  Excellent display item.  Stock code B24512.
