Harry the Hawk and Norah Wellings

Here is a dinky little stuffed toy, produced by Norah Wellings for the RAF comforts fund during the Second World War. With red lips and eyes looking right and even a small parachute in his pack it really is very cute. Very hard to find I believe. On the left foot is the Norah Wellings makers label and under his collar a label for the RAF comforts fund. The only item missing is a tiny set of goggles which I imagine got lost straight away and a paper label it was sold with. A lovely item and certainly one to cherish. I purchased this one from the ever reliable historic flying clothing company led by David Farnsworth http://www.historicflyingclothing.com
