Major Toler’s 1939 pattern leather holster and ammunition pouch Scarce leather version of the 1937 pattern webbing. Holster named to Major Toler. In his wartime account he states he carried an automatic pistol, most likely being a Browning Hi-Power 9mm. This is from a large lot of items belonging to the late Major Thomas Ian Jodrell Toler. He served with distinction throughout WW2 being evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940, then becoming Battery Commander of No 1 Air Landing Anti Tank Battery in 1942 and then commanding B Squadron No 1 Wing Glider Pilot Regiment in the Normandy, Arnhem and Rhine campaigns. He successfully swam the Rhine after escaping from Arnhem and was awarded the DFC for his actions. An excellent opportunity to own a real piece of our military history.
Major Toler’s 2 pounder Anti-Tank shell case and recovered round 1940 dated 2 pounder shell case with spent round recovered maybe from battle maybe from a training exercise? Nice display piece and talking point. This is from a large lot of items belonging to the late Major Thomas Ian Jodrell Toler. He served with distinction throughout WW2 being evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940, then becoming Battery Commander of No 1 Air Landing Anti Tank Battery in 1942 and then commanding B Squadron No 1 Wing Glider Pilot Regiment in the Normandy, Arnhem and Rhine campaigns.

Major Toler’s printed Airborne insignia from his working / combat BD blouse Rare set of printed insignia unfortunately missing one Pegasus formation sign. Very hard to find especially with such historically significant provenance. Might have been used on his Arnhem DFC blouse! This is from a large lot of items belonging to the late Major Thomas Ian Jodrell Toler. He served with distinction throughout WW2 being evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940, then becoming Battery Commander of No 1 Air Landing Anti Tank Battery in 1942 and then commanding B Squadron No 1 Wing Glider Pilot Regiment in the Normandy, Arnhem and Rhine campaigns. He successfully swam the Rhine after escaping from Arnhem and was awarded the DFC for his actions. An excellent opportunity to own a real piece of our military history.
Major Toler’s Shell Dressing from his Arnhem Denison Smock Unused but dirty and battered Shell Dressing dated 1940 removed from the Denison Smock that Major Toler wore at Arnhem. In his personal account of the Battle he describes damage to his Smock after being hit by German mortars which matches perfectly the damage on the Smock I acquired from his estate recently. This Shell Dressing pouch having been removed from this same Smock. A rare chance to acquire a Battle Of Arnhem relic. This is from a large lot of items belonging to the late Major Thomas Ian Jodrell Toler. He served with distinction throughout WW2 being evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940, then becoming Battery Commander of No 1 Air Landing Anti Tank Battery in 1942 and then commanding B Squadron No 1 Wing Glider Pilot Regiment in the Normandy, Arnhem and Rhine campaigns. He successfully swam the Rhine after escaping from Arnhem and was awarded the DFC for his actions. An excellent opportunity to own a real piece of our military history.
Major Toler’s WW2 No 36 Mills hand grenade In rough shape having a section cut from it and missing lever, spring and striker. In Major Toler’s account of the Battle Of Arnhem he states that he still had a hand grenade in his possession. Maybe this was the one? I can’t prove it but it is likely to be a relic of the Battle. This is from a large lot of items belonging to the late Major Thomas Ian Jodrell Toler. He served with distinction throughout WW2 being evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940, then becoming Battery Commander of No 1 Air Landing Anti Tank Battery in 1942 and then commanding B Squadron No 1 Wing Glider Pilot Regiment in the Normandy, Arnhem and Rhine campaigns. He successfully swam the Rhine after escaping from Arnhem and was awarded the DFC for his actions. An excellent opportunity to own a real piece of our military history.

Unique D-Day Killed In Action Parachute Regiment Airborne Forces’ steel helmet More pictures.
Unique D-Day Killed In Action Parachute Regiment Airborne Forces’ steel helmet Very rare opportunity to acquire a D-Day used helmet being the former property of Private Arnold Hargreaves of 13th Battalion who was killed in action on D-Day. BMB made, size 7 1/8, dated 1943. Early yellow sorbo rubber padding, early stitched not riveted straps and original helmet net to exterior which has now fused to the helmet and cannot be removed. Chin cup named to ‘A Hargreaves’. Found in a farm in Normandy in the 1970s. Airborne Forces steel helmets with their original nets are very difficult to find, and being named with D-Day provenance puts this amongst the best. Not much is known concerning what killed Private Hargreaves but some think he was part of a group of Parachute Regiment soldiers which were captured on D-Day and executed that same day by Karl Finkenrath who was himself later tried and executed for war crimes. This link provides some information http://ww2talk.com/index.php?threads/paratroopers-murdered-in-herouvillette.17653/ Information on Para Data site. Private Hargreaves is buried at Ranville War Cemetery.

WW2 1st Airborne Reconnaissance Squadron battledress blouse Very rare example of a battledress blouse to this short lived and small wartime raised unit. Rego made blouse, size 7, 1944 dated, embroidered Reconnaissance shoulder titles, printed Pegasus formation signs, standard UK made parachute qualification badge to right arm, Sergeant rank stripes to both arms and green sewn on troop identification insignia to both epaulettes. There is an additional pocket sewn in to the interior so there are two pockets inside instead of the standard one which the label/manufacturers details appear on. All insignia is undoubtedly wartime applied, a look which is impossible to recreate! This battledress blouse has been used and worn, possibly in combat, and as a result has numerous holes and damage throughout, however, this I deem to be acceptable as it’s the only example of its type I know of in existence. This unit served with distinction throughout WW2 with particular emphasis on fierce fighting at Arnhem as part of Operation Market Garden. The Squadron dropped 160 men by parachute and 45 by glider. 29 were killed, around 140 taken prisoner and 75 escaped to the UK. The Squadron slowly recovered after Arnhem but was disbanded in the Autumn of 1945.

BMB made, size 7, 1942 dated, stitched leather chinstraps, and camouflage finish to exterior with painted Recce decals to both sides. Army number written inside leather liner as per pictures. One chinstrap securing screw/bolt missing. Condition is good considering this helmet has seen much use in the field and possibly under combat conditions. There are scuffs and scrapes and signs of use and wear expected on a helmet that has seen use and is nearly 80 years old. One of the most desirable of Airborne Forces helmets. This unit served with distinction throughout WW2 with particular emphasis on fierce fighting at Arnhem as part of Operation Market Garden. The Squadron dropped 160 men by parachute and 45 by glider. 29 were killed, around 140 taken prisoner and 75 escaped to the UK.

WW2 No. 9 Commando black hackle No. 9 Commando was initially formed with 11 Commando in 1940 from Scottish Command. It became part of 2nd Special Service Battalion. The unit did not wear a cap badge as such but while serving in 2nd Special Service Battalion they wore a black hackle in a khaki Balmoral hat. When the Special Service Battalions were re-organized in March 1941, the unit reverted to its 9 Commando title, retaining the Balmoral and black hackle. The hackle was transferred to the green beret when the latter was adopted in 1942. These are genuine old WW2 stock and NOT more modern examples! Very small number available (three now left).
