Original WW2 RAF Sergeants Stripes

Original WW2 RAF Sergeants Stripes

Code: 54431


An original matched pair of RAF Sergeant Stripes dating from the Second World War.

These stripes feature the black backing which is correct for WW2 rather than the later blue serge backing used post-war. Interestingly, the stripes have been 'blanco'd' using a white blanco. This is often seen on British Army stripes but is not something I have previously seen on RAF stripes. It was done to make the stripes stand-out, so the original wearer clearly wanted to make his rank as visible as possible.

The stripes are in good condition as can bee seen in the pictures and have clearly been removed from a uniform.

A nice pair of rare wartime stripes which would be ideal to complete a uniform. Far superior to any modern reproduction!
