    A British Molins Mk 2 No.5 1” ‘Very’ Pistol.
    These were standard issue to the RAF in WWII and were supplied with both one-man and multi- person dinghies to enable downed RAF aircrew to attract the attention of passing aircraft or ships. They were also carried by fighter pilots tucked into their flying boots so to hand if required in an emergency. It is stamped M 601 which indicates that it was manufactured by I.L. Berridge & Co, who were a commercial knitting machine manufacturer based in Leicester. Berridge apparently made over 200,000 examples of this model during the war and they were issued to the RAF, Navy and the Army. It has a lug on the left side of the barrel which enabled RAF aircrew to lock the pistol into a locator fitted to the aircraft fuselage so a flare could be discharged from within, I believe that this was also the case with armoured vehicles.
    It is shown with 3 cartridge tin dated 1944.

    I have acquired a near mint Sheet 44V / 44W which covers Japan. It is technically not a WW2 map as (according to Dr Bonds book) they were produced in October 1945.
    Only 5000 were produced

    I have just obtained this amazing book, which I can only describe as a catalogue showing all of the available G.S.G.S (Geographical Section General Staff) maps for Germany, Denmark and Central Europe in March 1944. Whilst it is not specifically “escape and evasion” related I’ve no doubt that Mi9 would have cast an eye over a copy as there were silk and tissue maps which were direct copies of G.S.G.S maps.
    The book itself was printed by Waterlow and Sons and consists of a book in the first half and a folder in the second holding further, smaller booklets and a map. There are a number of pull maps in the book. It is very good condition, unfortunately my photos don’t really do it justice

    The forward to the book is pretty self explanatory:


    The area covered by this book consists of Germany, Denmark, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland. All the G.S.G.S. map series covering these countries are described in detail.
    The object of the notes is to show what maps are available (or will shortly be so) in this area, to describe the material used for their preparation, and to provide certain auxiliary information (such as glossaries, gazetteers and detailed indices) of value to map users.
    It must be emphasized that much of the information given in these notes is accurate only to the date to which it applies (March, 1944), and that, for instance, new series of maps, new editions of individual sheets, or new town plans may be prepared later. In general, however, the maps mentioned will be those supplied for operational requirements in this area.
    Only the main series are listed below; less important series are described in the text under their appropriate scale group.
    Volumes similar to this one have been prepared for Italy (1st May, 1943), and for France, Belgium, and Holland (December, 1943); a further volume on the Balkans is in preparation.
