1942 British Airborne Sleeping Bag named Pte ROSS Signaller 3 Para Bde HQ MIA 1944-06-06
1942 British Airborne Sleeping Bag named Pte ROSS Signaller 3 Para Bde HQ MIA 1944-06-06

WWII British AIRBORNE sleeping bag. Camouflaged (same as Denison smock), Big "wings" so that a combat dressed paratrooper or secret agent could wrap themselves in it to stay warm on a long cold flight in a bomber on the way to the drop zone. Toggle fasteners. NAMED Issue to three soldiers. The first one ROSS (with initials and service number) was a Signaller with Brigadier James Hill's 3rd Parachute Brigade and he went missing in action on the D-Day June 6 1944 drop into Normandy and he was never found. 1 Canadian Parachute Battalion was also in 3 Para Bde. Excellent condition. Hard to find and this one is named to a D-Day paratrooper fatality. $1,000.00
Parachute buckle WWII RAF RCAF Op Varsity dug
Parachute buckle WWII RAF RCAF Op Varsity dug

WWII British Parachute buckle. Relic of Operation Varsity, the parachute and waterborne invasion of Germany in March 1945. This was dug up in Germany near the drop zones. Analysis shows that it is not a paratrooper's buckle (as there is one fixed loop) but rather one for aircrew. As there is damage (bending) as well as corrosion, I think it is likely that this was for a crew-member of one of the RAF or RCAF transport aircraft that was shot down. These heroic crews stayed with their burning aircraft so that the paratroopers could try to get out. The relic hunter who found it would not reveal the exact location. My catalogue number CMS1859 $90
