I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

None of those on eBay was the real deal. I sold one that was as new last year. A new one was as rare as you know what. One my last sqn we had a 'stack' and they were much loved by the resident mouse population as well.

The mukluks I think were part of the Arctic warfare kit I think and not standard RAF issue.

To go with the parka and boots you really needed the glove assembly too. We had silk inners, white wool gloves and then white leather mittens. The mittens had a short lambswool pile on the back for rubbing frozen skin.
