    RAF 1952 pattern flying boots

    Item details

    Labels removed but aproximately size 6 or 7,  measuring  28cm from tip of sole to back of the heel.  Classic early 1950s 'escape' boot based on the earlier 1943 pattern.  It has a fairly standard shoe at the bottom with an unlined polished leather upper section that could be removed if evading in enemy territory.  Unfortunately, due to the generous proportions of the uppers on these boots there was a tendancy for them to fall off during high speed ejections!  With the slightly later rubber pattern sole.  Excellent lightly used condiiton.  Labels absent.  In service throughout the 1950s and until the mid 1960s.  Stock code B23655.
