A superb Bavarian officers 1910 pattern tunic and matching trousers for a lieutenant in the German Army Air Service. Tailored fine gaberdine grey material with Swedish cuffs, silver buttons and double matt silver litzen to the collar on patches of black velvet with poppy-red edging. Correct Bavarian threaded matching shoulder boards, each with propellers, however, one propeller is missing a wing and the other is broken-off but still intact.
Does have areas of light mothing and then especially to the lower right-hand front bottom skirt.
On the left-side there are 3 Loops for a ribbon bar and then 6 loops to house 3 awards with rubbing evidence to the fabric to show that they have been used.
Matching trousers with leather shoe fasteners at the bottom. The tailors name is visible on the trouser buttons as well as to the top rear on the pants, being 'Isidor Bach Munich' who was then a well known premium out-fitter and tailor of WW1 officers uniforms.
This aviators uniform was found in a house clearance in Denmark about 10 years ago.
(Badges in some of the photo's not included).
A fantastic set of used Royal Flying Corps pilots wings that have been removed from a tunic.
A beautiful set of slightly padded wings that have been been nicely trimmed by the wearer and must have seen some action over the Western Front, with a real 'been there' look to them and ideal for the collector who likes the well worn genuine article.
Abrasions to the two outer feathers, which seems common with worn and used wings, as they are very fine and a delicate item.
A pristine flat embroidered set of issued RFC pilots wings that are in very good condition and with only slight abrasions to lower outer bottom feathers.
The classic set RFC shape wings and a flat style and ideal for a collector who prefers a museum quality display type example.
Nice matching bi-metal cap badge by J. R Gaunt, and collar badges which are non-marked.
