WWII RAF salvage crew pass

Recommended Posts

An interesting and rarely seen paper item item for a member of an RAF salvage crew, which allowed him to use the facilities at the nearest RAF base when he was away from home, including the mess , the NAAFI and was allowed to sleep there if needed.  The unit were based at cowley in oxfordshire and specialised in Tiger Moths, moving damaged parts to the CRU at and were invlved in parts reclamation.

HI many thanks for showing  , as a serious collector of british military paperwork I still find it amazing  more people do not rate these ` tatty bits o` paper`  these items some times  have every thing ? a name dates  , place the guy was stationed etc etc far more that what a mear capbadge can offer up ?  just my thoughts .

Hi Michel

 

as you mention, a much undervalued item of WWII ephemera and the only example I have seen of this pass.  British items in general gather less interest and as you mention cap badges are the main interest for many collectors.  I was very happy to pick it up for a couple of quid.
