1920s RAF billet bedside shelving unit.

Whilst browsing the depths of eBay I stumbled across a small shelving unit that I recognised from photo research I have been doing.  I found this small unit that would have once lived alongside an airmans bed in their billet or barrack block.  I have also recently found some lockers that would have been in these early blocks too and hung above the airmans bed.  This unit has a beautiful towel rail on the back of it and is beautifully constructed for such a run of the mill item.  Check out the picture of an RAF 1920s billet to see how such a unitvwould have been placed and also the presence of the overhead lockers.
