RAF 1940 Pattern Flying Boots
Stores Ref. 22c/436. Size 6. The brown suede uppers are in good to very good overall condition with only minor rubbing and some soiling/stains. The rubber “galosh” section is perishing/hardened with substantial crystalization, cracking and some loss. Working Air Ministry marked zips that would benefit from lubrication for smoother running sliders. Original 'Redferns' soles and heels are good but show quite a bit of wear. Average soiling of the dense fur lining which is otherwise in good '+' condition. Complete with insoles. Air Ministry King's crown marked zip tongues. Genuine 1940 pattern boots, not the more commonly found 1941 pattern with the ankle strap removed. A rare find these days. Let down by the rubber galosh but priced accordingly. Stock code B19994.
