    A nice little American “evasion” wallet. It is made of HBT material and contains rosary beads, a Far Eastern blood chit and an AAF cloth map of Burma.

    Something that fits on the periphery of this thread - SOE knee pads. As I understand it they were originally made for British paratroopers in training but were then adopted by the SOE. These have a tiny bit of moth damage but appear unissued.

    A British Fleet Air Arm aircrew dinghy knife for use on their 1941 pattern Mae Wests. It was designed to have a curved blunt-tipped blade so it couldn’t accidentally puncture a dinghy. The knife would originally have had a second smaller pointed knife mounted within a groove in the handle but this is absent.
    An example can clearly been seen on the FAA pilot shown below

    “Instructions to Air crews” booklet, specifically covering New Guinea, Papua and New Britain. As with the other types of booklets it gives advice on what to do once you have bailed out, how to communicate with locals and has helpful phrases. It is shown with some of the other booklets that I have covering the Far East.

    This is a rare HIND silk map of Sumatra and Malaya. It is dated 1941.
    Unfortunately it has been stuck on board (on the rear) so I’m going to have to find the best way of removing it without causing too much damage.
