WANTED: RAF Ventile, Royal Navy Ursala Suit, Etc.

Recommended Posts

Hello fine folks!

I have a bit of an archive/ collection on the go and am seeking any rare, unique, unusual, cool military garments that might be out there. RCAF, RCN, RAF, Royal Navy, USN, USAAF, USAF, etc. etc. My areas of interest are generally within 1930's to 1970's

I've seen some great photos, and gotten some fantastic information from this forum for a while now, but have just been a lurker! Figured I would make a post and see if anything comes of it.

Right now I am really after any British ventile items, and would really love to find a 1940's Royal Navy "Ursala Suit" (Barbour submarine suit). Smocks, windproofs, parkas, anoraks, etc are all of interest as well (I've attached some photos of the type of garmentsI am after)

Willing to pay good money, trade, or just chat and see photos of peoples fine collections. Thanks so much and feel free to contact me with anything.

Used to have the 8th or 9th one down which used to be my father's when he was an engineer on Vulcan B1 and 2 at RAF Finingley.  Was worn until fell apart . Always wanted to get a replacement and would love to get a replica if anyone knows what they are called and where could get one.
