Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

Promising start, just need to upgrade on the FAA C type :)

Keep at it young man, we're not getting any older!


As a measure of us not getting any younger it's only now I realise what I wrote was not what I meant! :oops:

Well done mate, I particularly like the Malta pics! Taken at the fairly new aircraft museum? Is the War Museum at Fort St Elmo still closed?

Good photos, thank you. They really bring it home how young the pilots were in 1940.

Hi all, that was before my son started doing RAF properly, he was using Duxford's own kit for a photoshoot that is currently being used on the leaflets and front entrance sign. He now has so much RAF kit he doesn't know where to put all of it. Will post some soon of full BOB kit and maybe a few more.

Great pictures, was the lack of rank braid and wings on the KD jacket intentional?
