On June 5 in NYC, you have a chance to score a very cool piece of both menswear and military history:
This Royal Air Force officer’s uniform including his fleece-lined leather jacket, overseas cap, white turtleneck sweater and boots.
The items, which belonged to bona fide war hero Wing Commander Roland Prosper Beaumont, CBE, DSO, are being offered at Bonhams’ World War II Sale.
Also included are Beaumont’s German-issued POW metal dog tags, dating from the time he spent at Stalag Luft III—best known as the location for Steve McQueen’s The Great Escape.
Time to take off…
