Well what can I say. I recently stumbled across a hidden gem in the form of an old outfitters that now closed, has a basement and store full of RAF clothing and equipment that the owner, now in his late 70s, purchased from the Air Ministry from disposal sales. One item was this Beautiful. RAF drum . In slightly shabby condition after hiding in a basement for 70 years this drum is beautifully hand painted with royal cypher and RAF crest. The brass casing is alsobstamped with the AM crest and 1941 date. A lovely item and work of art.
