WW2 RAF 1941 PATTERN 'BOMBER' FLYING BOOTS
A great pair of 'been there' operationally worn 1941 pattern flying boots in a large size 11, and with the correct makers stamps and the owners name inscribed in each.
These boots came into use with the Royal Air Force during 1941 and became synonymous with Bomber Command air crews earning them the nick name 'bomber boots'. But they were in fact used by all arms of the RAF; Bomber, Fighter and Coastal Commands, and they also saw use with the USAAF based in the UK, particularly the 8th and 9th Air US Forces.
The sheepskin lining is intact and free of any discolouration or damage, the outer suede is in a worn condition with marked and stained areas around where the aircraft foot pedals would have come in contact. The rubber area around the bottom which is often damaged or missing on these boots is completely intact. They have been resoled post-war, but this does not distract for display purposes.
Both boots feature their original brass zips which function well. Both zips are marked "W" which is one of the common marks to find on these pattern of boots.
Priced sensibly due to having been postwar resoled.
