A nice pair of original RAF 1941 pattern flying boots in good condition and in a size 9.
This pattern of boots came into issue with the RAF during the Second World and were particularly popular with Bomber Command, earning the nickname of 'bomber boots'.
This particular pair are in good condition with only limited signs of age and wear. The suede uppers are in good shape with some marks where the straps have rubbed over the years. The sheepskin lining is also very good and mostly intact. The rubber galosh section which runs around the boot where it joins the sole is in good condition for the most part with some small parts missing as can be seen in the pictures. Both boots are fitted with matching 'Lightning' brand zippers as are commonly found on this pattern of boots. The boots come complete with their original leather ankle straps.
The boots retain their original 'Itshide' branded soles as are normally found on this pattern which have had part replacement soles added. The heels are the originals and feature the brand name of 'Phillips'
The leather flap which sits behind the zipper on each boot bears the War Department broad arrow marking as well as the numeral '9' which denotes the size. The RAF stores code of 22c/752 is also present and the original owner has marked their name in ink which reads 'D. Farquharson'.
Altogether a nice pair of boots which display very well and are in a harder to find, larger size.
