    Default My 'Secret Santa' haul - pile o' luft stuff

    So the mailman dropped this off for me today. A buddy of mine in Australia occasionally comes across stuff in the course of his vintage aviation business, things not airframe related he at times gives to me, usually RAAF, RAF that sort of thing. This year, a bit different. As I don't collect TR anymore these will all find new homes and the funds will go towards WW I British gallantry medals or maybe a WW I German uniform. I'll post more details in the relevant sections a bit later. But, overall - 3 caps, winter, officers M43, flight section NCO, summer flight helmet, 2 pairs flying pants one winter and one unused heated channel pants, three luft work shirts, insignia with an especially nice pilots/observors badge and a finger ring for JG 5 'Eismeer' the Me 109 unit based on the Northern Finnish front. No idea who the pilot was, looks like he ended up as a Major. he NCO cap has he initials 'F.R.' in the sweatband.
