Small RAF display I was asked to do

Article about: Hi Guys, a friend of ours who runs the local British Legion and is actively involved with our local museum archive asked if we could help with a small RAF display to co-inside with the 75th

    When you say you are not a big RAF collector, you certainly found enough for a first class display so for stuff you do collect you must have an amazing collection, but then I assume most of us here already thought that would be the case, at least I did.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Thanks Jerry.

    I first bought a few RAF items, all Air Gunner related, as a kind of tribute to my Great Uncle Sid back in the mid 1990's. The uniform all fitted me and I wore it to a couple of 1940's dances. The other A/G uniform group I just had to have, as it killed me seeing it split and I managed to re-unite it for a reasonable cost.

    I would still like to get a C type flying helmet at some stage. A couple have come through work recently, but both made good money. I don't really want to pay a huge sum for one. I will find one someday.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Gary.

    I took some original RAF shirts to go under the uniforms. These have a separate collar. But the modern mannequins necks were too large for the collar studs to close the collars and add the black neck ties. So I added a silk scarf to the BD which I already had and improvised a white silk scarf with some material from the museum. The mannequins were kindly provided by a gents clothes shop in town.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I was at the museum again yesterday.

    The RAF C Type flying helmet is now on display.

    I also met up with the gentlemen who collected German daggers. He brought in some superb items to show me.

    The exhibition runs until the end of the month.

    Cheers, Ade.
