An extremely scarce example of an RAF Ordinary Airman’s tie complete with its original label.
The construction of the tie is typical of the period being made from a single piece of fabric. It is very short in length which again is standard for 1940s ties and has a partial hessian liner like all issue ties.
The tie still retains its original label which is bright and clearly legible. It features the makers name and War Department broad arrow mark.
The overall condition of the tie is very good and it displays well. There is a small amount of staining around where the knot would be tied as detailed in the third picture. This is only noticeable on close inspection and may not be visible when tied.
A very rare item which is a must have for any RAF collection and would certainly be very hard to better!
