RAF Sunglasses, are models listed anywhere?

Hi All, Have just bought a pair of Air Ministry sunglasses, made by Levers. The case has -

A*M
294/11/P/2295
LEVERS.

Of course * is a crown and ‘P’ might be an ‘R’

I can find very little information about these sunglasses, they are not covered in Proger’s book and searches just bring up a few ‘for sale’ pairs with brief vendor discriptions.

Can anyone tell me something of their history? Adoption date, designation, uses etc?

Some vendors say these were pre-war, and there seem to be several post-war versions. Is there any where with a clear listing of RAF sunglass types?

All the best

Steve

Need help! German Helmets at an Antique Mall

I found a few German helmets at a local antique mall, I’m pretty sure they’re all original, but as always would like a second opinion before I decide whether I want to purchase them or not. Sadly I failed to get good quality pictures, but I’ll upload what I managed to take. The WW1 Stalhelm and Luftschutz helmet are both without liner, but the WW2 Stalhelm does have a liner. I’m not sure if these are great prices, but they seem reasonable if they’re truly originals. Any opinions are welcome!

Hey folks,

I need some opinions on this relic.
What do you think? Thinking to buy this one. I don’t have much experience on ss helmets and decals so I need some advice before buying it.

Cheers

Hello everyone, just thought I’d show some German small kit.

Displayed on a bread bag in which many of these things would have been carried.

Any comments welcome. Doug

Poppy selling

I’m now reaching the end of my stint at the local supermarket… just three more days to go. As always, the generosity of the public has been truly overwhelming. Last week my stall collected £1,150 in just two days. Loads of notes fed into the tins, loads of people donating. Last Saturday the RBL replenished the stocks in Liverpool and sold 12,000 pin badges in that one day. A young Polish couple bought one of my wreaths this morning too. My grandchildren, Emily & Tom, popped in on their way home from school to get their poppies yesterday. And today my eldest daughter Michelle called in and spent a few hours helping me on the stall. Unlike the other charity, ‘Help For Heroes’, all monies collected by the Royal British Legion goes to help ALL former servicemen and their dependants in need, and not those who just served in Afghanistan. Remember that next time you donate.

Cheers,
Steve.
