Early WWII Flight Helmet with Mk I Goggles

This is a standard flight helmet used at the beginning of the war with the RCAF, and typically used in flight training. The leather is well worn, showing a lot of weathering and sweat with a small tear in the inner lining. The Mk I goggles come with the helmet and are in good condition, clear glass and liner intact. The markings are clear, and the frame shows wear, As can be seen the elastic is somewhat lost in the strap, but still displays well.

An Early Victorian Militia Bicorn c.1850

Here we offer an early pattern Bicorn to a CO or Staff Officer in the Militia. The bullion fittings are silver as is the button. The cap is lined with purple silk and has its leather headband. The cap is made of beaver felt and is missing its red and white cocked feathers. The japanned tin is unmarked, but in nice shape. A good early example of this type of cap.

WWI ID Bracelet to a Tunneler

During WWI soldiers were issued ID discs worn around the neck, but many also wore custom wrist bracelets to help ID their corpse if the worst were to happen. Far to often soldiers were torn apart by artillery and their identity could not be confirmed, so soldiers would double up their chances of getting a proper burial. Here we offer such a bracelet in brass on a leather band named to a Sapper F. Nott of the Canadian Engineers. I believe he is a member of a Tunneling Company in the CE. More research required.

This example is in rough shape, missing its liner and chinstrap, retaining about 70% of it paint, and cracked in two places with some dents. Not in the best condition, but has its original cap badge and priced right. The 4th CMR had an extremely good battle record and was highly decorated.
