RAF 1939 Pattern Flying Boots, S7
Stores Ref. 22c/227. Size 7. 1940 dated. Classic Battle of Britain boots identical in pattern to the earlier 1936 pattern but with vulcanized canvas uppers. The leather shoe section is in very good condition with only minor wear and tear. The canvas uppers are also good, they are a bit grubby and have the usual wear at the ankles - see photos. This pair is fitted with the earlier canvas top strap rather than the black leather version. The linings are much better than most '39 pattern boots with only a little moulting / fur loss in the aankle area. Fitted with the original insoles. The original soles are worn but undamaged whilst the heelplates may have been replaced at some point.
Complete with clear Air Ministry King's crown markings and 1940 date code in each boot. A very good '+' used pair of these rare early boots. Stock code B19682.
