1 A/T RCA Shoulder Flash In wool. Hard to find.
1 Canadian Parachute Battalion Battle Dress Tunic - RARE An extremely rare and all original BD tunic to 1 Can Para. This tunic has been used and worn and displays considerable fading and wear to the material (although not detracting). This would have been a working tunic and not a best "coming home" or "marching out" example. The shoulder titles are in canvas as are the Pegasus patches. You can see they have suffered color loss from multiple washings. The tunic also displays a Canadian jump wing and ribbon with leaf for the CVSM. The only marking remaining inside the tunic is the C Broad Arrow, all others being washed out. If this was well dated and marked the cost would be considerably more. This example comes from an old collection and regrettably there is no information or name of the original owner.
1 Canadian Parachute Battalion Brass Cap Badge A scarce cap badge to the 1 Can Para. Brass badge with both lugs that has been bent slightly to give it a convex shape to better contour to the beret.
1 Canadian Parachute Battalion Canvas Shoulder Title A scarce original shoulder title to 1 Can Para printed canvas. This patch has never been sewn onto a tunic but does show slight age darkening/soiling. Overall I would rate it 9 out of 10.
1 Canadian Parachute Battalion Dennison Smock 1945 A fine 1945 dated Dennison Smock with Canadian Jump Wing and Cpl rank. Colors are good with only minimal fading. All snaps and zips are present and functioning. Written on the pocket below the jump wings is "CHUCK". I don't have any history on this one I'm afraid as to who wore it. It comes from a very good and old collection.

10th Bn (Calgary) Trench Cap - 1918 Dated - Named and numbered A lovely Canadian trench cap to the 10th Bn. Nicely dated 1918 with makers mark and C Broad Arrow. This hat has a few scattered moth nips but looks fantastic with a distinctive "saddle" shape where it has molded to the owners head. If you run his name and service number through LAC, you will see that he enlisted with Depot CASC. He must of went to the 10th as a late war reinforcement. You can see where a badge was removed and replaced with the 10th Cap badge. However, from the verdigris and wear, you can tell the badge is period to the cap.

1899 Strathcona Horse Field Service Cap - Attributed to Samuel Howe - Calgary Cowboy An outstanding Boer War Field Service Cap to the Strathcona Horse. Neatly dated 1899 and War Department marked. The SH went to South Africa wearing these dark blue caps in 1899 and were then issued the Khaki service dress more often seen in photographs. What makes this particularily exciting is the service number penned inside in indelible purple pencil (as often encountered on uniforms and kit from that era). The number 477 is attributed to 477 Pte Samuel Howe, of Calgary, AB who was born in Montana. He joined the SH in 1900 and served in South Africa with them. Upon enlistment he listed his trade as a Rancher Cowboy! His docs can be accessed online at the Soldiers of the South African War (Archives of Canada).

1913 Canadian Oliver Pattern Waist Belt A fetching Canadian Oliver Pattern waist belt. Marked Hugh Carson Ottawa 1913 and C Broad Arrow to the tab. This belt is not the field type with fitting to attach cross braces, so I am assuming it was an officer item for Garrison.
1914 Dated Canadian Pith Helmet This helmet displays quite well but has had a hard life. The cork tail is broken but held in place by the cloth cover and stitching. The dome vent is missing and the chinstrap is broken. Generally stained up and worn but nicely marked and dated inside. Maker, C Broad Arrow, 1914 date, and the owners name and number written inside.

The date and manufacture with unit markings is clearly marked inside the tunic. Extra photos in the following listing.

1916 Canadian CEF Trench Cap - near MINT/UNISSUED An impossibly rare unissued Canadian 1916 dated trench cap.

1917 Imperial German Holster for a .32 Auto A WW1 German holster for a small automatic pistol. The holster is missing the exterior magazine pocket. Although hard to make out, the inside of the flap has a maker mark and a date of 1917. There is also a unit stamp under the flap. Not perfect but if you have a naked pistol to match, it will do the trick.
1918 Canadian Victory Bonds Pin Bright colouring with pin back.
1918 Canadian Victory Loan Subscriber Pin
1918 Letter from King Geo V to freed allied POW's A must have if you have a set of medals to a Canadian POW!

The tunic has had the cuff rank and leave eagles removed but retains the wing. Named inside to WW Gyles. This is worthy of research and perhaps some restoration! As found.

The frame is in very good condition with little rubbing, even on exposed surfaces. The velvet backing is lovely and clean. The lenses have relatively light even scratches/scuffing and are in good overall condition. The strap springs are all complete/undamaged and the leather strap section is equally good with clear A.M. marks and stamped with a 1939 date code. The end furled part of the strap has been removed.
1939 RAF Type B Flying Helmet- Battle of Britian - AM tag Frnk Bryan Ltd London A scarce Type B flying helmet with nice maker tag and date of 1939. As the photos illustrate, this helmet shows use with soiling and wear to the chamois lining. All straps and buckles, pulls, etc are present and the leather is quite supple. The stitching has let loose around the right ear cup and partially on the left as well. These could be resewn with a little bit of effort. A good salty helmet which I've priced to reflect the issues.

1940 Calgary Highlanders Mark II Helmet - Numbered A stunning Mk II helmet to a member of the Calgary Highlanders. The CH checkered decal shows some wear but is original to the helmet (it is foil backed unlike most later war transfer decals) and has had the heavy textured camo paint applied right up to the edges. Proper brass screw, liner and chinstrap have not been messed with. The helmet itself is a British produced JSS 1940 model (Canadian helmet production having not caught up to at that early year of the war). Painted inside the rim is the members service number. A great research project which will give you awesome provenance.

1942 British Mk I Airborne Helmet with Fibre Rim - Australian chinstrap conversion If you go on the forums you will find a lot of information concerning these conversions. It is an original Mk I British Airborne Helmet with Fibre Rim which has had the leather chinstrap removed and replaced with a WW2 Canvas chinstrap. This seems to be purely an Australian undertaking and is likely due to tropical heat as the leather wouldn't stand up. I sourced this helmet out of Australia in fact and it has not been messed with. The headband is marked BMB 1942 size 67/8. The rubber and felt liner shows some deterioration which is likely due to heat. The felt top pad in the crown is present. The finish is the original textured olive green which shows quite a bit of wear with a dent in one spot. There is also the numerals 88/5 overpainted in red. A very scarce helmet in any regard.
1942 British Mk I Airborne Helmet with Fibre Rim - Australian chinstrap conversion Additional Photos
1942 British Rubberized Ground Sheet A little bit soiled but in very good condition. No tears or damage and nice clean markings.
1942 Canadian Anti-Gas Wallet A near mint camoflauge anti-gas wallet (for protecting the pay book, wallet, etc). Well marked Kaufmann 1942 with the C Broad Arrow. These are very scarce to find.
1942 Canadian Army/Airforce Black Oxfords - Unissued A mint pair of Canadian made oxfords which are profusely marked and dated 1942. A huge size 12.5!! These would really finish an RCAF early war pilot uniform.
1942 Canadian Black Watch Mark II Helmet - Dieppe A stunning Mk II helmet with painted insignia to the Canadian Black Watch. The helmet itself is a GSW 1942 production with proper brass screw, liner and chinstrap. The insignia is of the type only worn early on during the war (similar to WW1 div patches) and is noted for being worn at the Dieppe Raid. Quite possible that this one saw service there and made it back with a survivor. Don't miss this one!
1942 Canadian Gas Cape - Extra Photos Please pay attention to the 12" slit down the back.
1942 Canadian Gas Cape - ARISTO GAULT ONT A holy grail for most collectors of Canadian kit. A 1942 ARISTO Gault Ont, marked anti gas cape (with C Broad arrow). Very bright two tone camo scheme. As usual, very sticky and one must be most carefull when unrolling it. There is 12" long slit running down the back where the cape split but this can be taped from the inside and is virtually invisible while on display. Most often these capes were rolled and carried on the small back. Please see the additional photos. If it were not for the tear, this would be a $1000 item.
1942 Canadian GSW Mk II Helmet with Lieutenant Rank to front A very good General Steel Wares of Canada produced Mk II helmet (dated 1942). There are two rank pips stenciled to the front designating a 2nd Lt. Very nice and from my personal collection.
1942 Canadian Mk II Helmet - Assistant Instructor badge with shrapnel damage!! A very interesting Canadian Mk II which was produced by CLC in 1942. This one has an Assistant Instuctor badge painted on the side overtop of a black rectangle. Armoured maybe? The front of the helmet is a puncture from a shrapnel strike. I'd say the owner was very lucky judging from where it struck. My thoughts are that this helmet was worn in England while training and then went to NW Europe with a net over top of it to conceal the insignia. General wear to the paint and insignia finish. Good liner and chinstrap.
1942 Canadian Mk II Helmet with partial insignia to Le Regiment De Maisonneuve - 2nd Cdn Div A CLC 1942 produced Mk II helmet showing lots of wear to the painted finish and insignia. Although only about 40% remains of the insignia, it stikes me as being Regt de Maisonneuve which fought through NW Europe as part of the 2nd Canadian Division. The condition of this helmet is quite worn but has certainly been there. Retains the VRC liner and a faded chinstrap which is C Broad Arrow marked. The markings on the shell are hard to see but can be made out in proper light (I've boxed the on the photo - CLC 1942 73).
1942 Canadian Mk II Helmet with RCA decal A very clean CLC 1942 produced Mk II helmet with liner and chinstrap. Retains about 65% of an RCA transfer decal to the left side.
1942 Canadian Respirator with Bag and Contents A near complete Canadian Respirator rig in excellent clean condition. The gas mask is GSW produced and well marked and dated 8/42. The bag is clean and marked SS Holden. Included is a set of 42 eye shields, a complete tin of Anti Gas Ointment and two different anti dimming tins (a Chaco 42 and a GSW 41 Mk I). I think the only thing not included is the gas brassard. As clean and complete a grouping as you could hope to find.
1942 Canadian Rubber Ground Sheet / Poncho A scarce and essential item of WW2 infantry equipment. A Canadian ground sheet (shelter half) which is designed to be worn as a poncho. Pliable brown rubber which is free of tears or cracks but is missing one button. Nicely marked and dated 1942. C Broad Arrowed of coarse.

Three tassels suspended from chains. The goat hair is complete and fine. Retains the waste belt but the end has been broken off. This came to be from a collector and I've written his comments below: "Highland Regiment Sporran, 79th Cameron Badge, named Huggard inside pouch, original owner was the grandfather, don't know his initial's, next came father, Major J.C. Huggard, commanded "A" Company QOCH. During WW2, was told he used the sporran of his father, bought the items from the son who was an officer in the QOCH in the 1960's or 1970's."

90th Winnipeg Rifles Officer's Universal Helmet - C.1904-1914. An exceedingly rare and fine universal helmet with plate to the 90th Winnipeg Rifles (Little Black Devils). The universal helmet has been tea dyed and has the helmet plate (possibly a shoulder plate) affixed to the front by pressing the three lugs through the helmet. By the quality of this item, I believe it was done up by an officer. The Kings crown plate was introduced in 1904 and would have been worn up to WW1. There is an example of a similar helmet with Victorian Queen's Crown plate in the Royal Winnipeg Rifles museum in Winnipeg. A photo of it is illustrated in "Fuss & Fashion - 200 Years of Canadian Military Headdress" by Clive M. Law. If you examine the badge from the side, you can see a ghosting image of the badge outline on the helmet, in other words it has been on the helmet forever and hasn't been made up. The liner is fine with size tag and shows only minimal wear. I doubt you will ever see another like this for sale. This surfaced from an estate near Victoria, BC a number of years ago and has made it's way to me recently.

Boer War Oliver Pattern Water Bottle Carrier - RCR marked with number to Casualty These Oliver pattern carriers are near impossible to find on their own. However this is the first one I've ever seen regimentally marked to the Royal Canadian Regiment with service number. 313 being the last three digits of 7313 Carleton Woodford ALLEN. He enlisted in 1899 having served in the QOR in Toronto. He was at Paardeberg, Driefontein, Cape Colony and Transvaal, being wounded in action at Cronje's Laager, Feb 17th 1900. http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/south-african-war-1899-1902/Pages/list.aspx?RegimentNumber=7313& These carrier held a pint sized soda water bottle which could be replaced commercially. They were extremely unpopular and most were discarded in favour of the British Canteen in theater. Hence, they are near impossible to find today. The leather remains quite pliable. A period glass soda water bottle is readily available on eBay for a small price.

Brass Dynamite Cutter\'s Knife - circa 1900 A scarce turn of the century brass knife for cutting dynamite (as it will not produce a spark). Nice age patina and maker marked SSS on the handle. The knife measures 11 inches from end to end. Great item for your demolition or Sapper collection.
British 1856 Drummer Sword A very pleasing British Drummer/Bandsman sword of the 1856 pattern. A good blade with some age darkening but no rust or pitting. The cast handle is very nice. Typically these are found with a leather scabbard but this one has an unusual purple velvet and brass example which has nice age and patination to it. I would think this must of been for ceremonial usage? One of the suspension rings is missing.

A British sorbo airborne training helmet which is marked with a Canadian C Broad Arrow. Also a hand writtten name inside. Likely used at the WW2 jump school in Shilo, Manitoba.

I feel this is a home made title likely worn in South Africa (c1899-1902). Possibly early WW1 vintage but very unlike typical CEF badges.
Canadian MS&U 1940 Bayonet Frog Excellent condition. This is the modified frog which can accomodate the Lee Enfield Sword Bayonet or Spike Bayonet.

You have to slide the face and reverse slides in opposite directions (one up and one down, simultaneously) to open the case.

FROST and WOOD Cutaway No36 Grenade - 1944 A very good Canadian produced Frost and Wood no. 36 grenade which is sectioned for instructional use. Both body and level are mared FW. The base plug is dated 1944. Complete with the all the internals but note that the filler plug is is partialy out of round and does not sit straight within the body. There is no trouble shipping this within Canada. However, out of Canada is at the BUYERS OWN RISK. I will dissamble the grenade and sent it stripped, but there is a good chance that customs may seize it and destroy it. So, if you want to take the chance and you loose it, I won't be held responsible.

It has been hanging in the wood shed on the farm ever since (well until two weeks ago). Original in every respect with a partial liner and chinstrap which are quite weathered.

Militia Period Numeral 1 in White Metal Good Lugs
Militia Period/WW1 Canadian Mess Tins and Cover A fine kidney shaped mess tin with the rare inner tray. This one includes a locally produced chocolate brown cover with snap fasteners. I think this ensemble predates WW1 as it has no maker marks or acceptance stamps and the handle attachment bails are much heavier than war dated examples.

New Zealand Shoulder Title Both lugs present.

North Vancouver, BC Canadian Engineers Swagger Stick - named An exceedingly rare and charming swagger stick with Birks Sterling marked head. The head has the likeness of the Canadian Engineers Cap Badge marked beneath North Vancouver, BC. Engraved to the reverse is the initials B.B. This was obtained from the estate of a B.C. Bracewell (a deputy minister in BC from 1945-54). A check of the WW1 archives revealed the Bruce Bracewell, of North Vancouver, enlisted in 6 Field Company, CE in 1916. http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/image.aspx?Image=254662a&URLjpg=http%3a%2f%2fdata2.archives.ca%2fcef%2fgpc001%2f254662a.gif&Ecopy=254662a Further research revealed that BB was the father of the aforemention Bracewell of BC political fame. The stick itself is painted a khaki brown and retains the brass end tip. You will never see another like this!

RAF 1943 WINGS FOR VICTORY Faux Marble Plaque An absolutely fabulous plaque which must of hung in a bank or some such building. It was presented as an award by the Air Ministry in recognition of achievement for the Wings For Victory, War Savings Campaign of 1943. The plaque is large and heavy and appears to be of white marble (in fact plastic, as the makers mark attests: DE LA RUE PLASTICS). Unfortunately, this plaque suffered a fall during its\' life and has a crack across the upper right corner (see the pictures). A steel strip was added to the back to reinforce it, and it can hang without fear. Really it doesn\'t detract much at all. The plaque measures 14 inches by 23.5 inches and appears to be \"carved\" in base relief. It weights 7.5 pounds. This will make an exceptional backdrop to you RAF collection!

RCAF Escape Compass - Small Size A lovely escape compass, believed to be Canadian made. A small quantity of these compasses (large and small types) surfaced in Montreal, Quebec a few years ago as part of an RCAF pilots effects.

RCAF Fighter Pilot Clip Board - Cockpit Use - Pilot named I was forunate to purchase some which came from a decease RCAF veteran in Edmonton. His name was P/O Gildner and his career spanned WW2 and into the postwar period (one of his tunics is dated 1951). Unfortunately I do not have any further details on his career. This is his clipboard which straps to the pilots thigh and hold maps, etc while in flight. This clip board is marked NOORDUYN AVIATION LTD. The Noordyn Company was a Canadian manufacture that started in 1934 and was bought out immediatley following WW2 by the Canada Car and Foundry Co. During WW2, Noorduyn produced Harvard trainers, Noresmen and other aircraft. Interestingly, Gildner continued to use this clipboard in the postwar period as evidenced by the original data sheet for the T33 which is on the board. The back of the board has his name and rank scratched into it. It appears that he attained the rank of Squadron Leader at some time. Very neat piece for the RCAF collector!

The hardwood handle is very good and strong. The metal cap has some surface rust which will clean up well with a little effort.
WW1 British Harness Strap - 1918 Marked A very heavy leather strap with steel hook on one end. I suspect this has something to do with harness for draft horses. Very heavy leather strap, well marked WILMOT BENNET WALSALL 1918. Also a Broad Arrow over a 2. Measures 11 inches long by 1.5 inches wide.
WW1 British Hessian/ Sand Bag Helmet Cover - Additional Photos Extra photos. Please see listing for description of this rare item.
WW1 British Hessian/ Sand Bag Helmet Cover- Notts & Derby Regiment An exceedingly rare four panel helmet cover for the Brodie made of hessian sand bags. Complete with two small wool green diamond unit or formation insignia (I'm told Notts and Derby Regiment but am not certain). There are no rips or damage to this cover and it is in excellent condition, however a bit grubby as is to be expected. This item has been folded in four for many years and has creases as such. It would be easy enough to fit this to a helmet should you wish. The tie string is present. I've only had one other of these in 35 years of collecting and the ones I've seen in museum collections on helmets tend to be quite the worse for wear. A seldom encountered item for the serious British headgear collector.
WW1 British issue Mess Tin 1917 A very good British issues kidney shaped mess tin. Most of the original subdued finish is present to the exterior and the interior tin wash is bright. This is the type without the little insert tray. Maker mark to bottom is partially obscured - looks like COCK & CORFIELD LTD 1917. There is also a Broad Arrow stamped into the lip of the bottom tin.

The kahki tunic displays ribbons for an MC and 1914/15 star whilst the tan tunic only has the MC ribbon. Some scattered mothing but these look excellent!! His listing in the MC awards books says: Johnson, Frank Edward Harte, LT. CASC. 01/01/17. New Year award 1917. No citation. I suspect that this translates to a much deserved award for hard work/service through the trials of the Somme. Worthy of much more research.
WW1 Cavalry Hoof Pick A scarce British marked and dated cavalry hook pick as issued to troopers. Clear broad arrow mark and a worn maker name and date. I believe it reads 1909.

A WW1 training grenade made of oak and filled with lead to replicate the look and weight of a No5 Mills bomb. Really lovely workmanship on this.

The tunic is in overall very good condition and retains a beautiful set of wool Div patches, Hicks and Son marked multipiece collar badges, embroidered 1 year of service blue chevron, leather buttons and brass rank insignia. At one time this tunic had a different set of collars on it and I suspect the officer came to the 1st as a late war reinforcement. If you examine the Div patches and chevron, they are lovely and original to the tunic. Missing one brass Canada title which is an easy replacement. There is an inked costume shop name to the lining as this must of ended up with them following the war. Looks fantastic and will be a highpoint for a display.

WW1 Leather Horses Nose Bag An unusual piece of horse equipment for the cavalry or veterinary corps collector. A leather nose bag which I believe is in fact intended as a muzzle rather than a feed bag (judging my the holes in the sides). I would think this would keep a horse from biting when being worked on a vet or farrier. No maker marks that I can find but certainly WW1 equipment. The brass rivets are tinned over as found on holsters and other leather equipment.

WW1 PPCLI Marguerite Cap Badge Very nice striking in browning copper with North South lugs. IF you examine the lugs, they have been very cleanly repaired or reinforced with silver solder at some point. May well be a period job. Anyhow, doesn't detract from the appearance but I've priced the badge to reflect this.
WW1 PPCLI Marguerite Cap Badge Nice copper stiking but has some old polish residue in the crevices. This will clean up with a little work with a tooth brush or a good polishing. Lugs face East West.

WW2 Belgium First Grenadeer Regiment Side Cap Very nice khaki wool cap with blue piping and red tassle. Gold numeral 1 and flaming grenade badges. Thanks to Kirstof for sending the following information: "Your sidecap belonged to an enlisted man of the 1ste grenadeer regiment. The colours of the piping (black) and tassel (red) refer to the infantry branch. The flaming grenade refers to a grenadeer regiment, the number to the specific regiment, in this case the 1st grenadeer regiment. The same colours could be repeated on the collar tabs on the uniforms of the grenadeer regiments (red base colour with black piping and a metal collar badge in the shape of a flaming grenade). The cap is of pre WW2 manufacture (slightly smaller compared to the world war 1 version). It is not an official 'army production', but rather a private purchase. The 1st grenadeer regiment was mobilised and re-activated in march 1939. Part of the 6th infantry division, the 1st grenadeers were stationed near the Albert Channel, in the Tessenderlo sector at the outbreak of the war (10/05/1940). They quickly pulled back to the Koningshooikt-Waver line and took up positions near Lier (13/05/1940). By 19/05/1940, the 1st grenadeers reached the Belgian defensive positions near the Gent-Terneuzen Channel. The regiment finally surrendered on 28/05/1940 (general surrender of the Belgian army) and layed down arms in the Roeselare area. During 18 days of fighting, they had suffered 68 KIA's and many more wounded.
