An extremely scarce example of an RAF Ordinary Airman’s tie complete with its original label.
This pattern of tie was worn by all ranks up to and including flight sergeants. They were also worn by WAAFs of the corresponding ranks.
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.
The tie still retains its original label which is still partly legible with the War Department broad arrow marking being clear and the maker's initials just visible. The date is also present but impossible to read.
The tie is in good condition for its age with some signs of wear, use and age. Overall it displays well and could still be worn.
A very rare original OA item to find today, complete with its original label. Ideal for an RAF or WAAF impression or mannequin!
