WOW Rare pieces from AV Aviation


Original Stalag Luft III Luftwaffe guards helmet + documents

Named helmet & documents from the Luftwaffe run POW camp, with excellent provenance.


Otherwise referred to as a 'Goon' helmet. Goons being the nickname given to German guards



'Holy Grail' items for the serious helmet or 'Great Escape' collector.

 


Items are from the estate of the late Wing Commander John Nunn DFC AE

Nunn was part of the legendary escape being the officer responsible for the flawed tunnel length calculation.

(resulting in 'Harry' tunnel being famously short)

For more information on Nunn visit his wikipedia page


You are bidding on/buying the pictured helmet & 3 page British Intelligence document.

The documents relate to the final days of the camp and are Nunns personal copy of the Intelligence transcript.

(His Intelligence liaison officers contact details are penciled on the reverse)


The helmet was abandoned at the camp as the Luftwaffe guards were fearful that the advancing Russian army would mistake them for defensive troops.

They instead opted to wear only cloth caps as they left the camp & retreated.

The helmet was then brought back to England with Nunn himself.


RARE items with excellent provenance.

It is suggested that prospective buyers contact me for further details & Hi resolution photographs of the items.


EBAY NOTE: This item is a Luftwaffe (Air Force) helmet & is not connected to any banned organisations or imagery.


This year marks the 70th anniversary of the 'Great Escape'
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the 'Great Escape'
