WW2, RAF Captain of Aircraft Armband

Wartime issue RAF Captain of Aircraft Armband.

Air Ministry Stores Ref. No. 22H/751, circa 1944.

The RAF has always maintained that the pilot, regardless of rank, is at all times in command of the aircraft.
Sometimes this caused un-necessary friction with a senior officer crew member.
To counter this the Air Ministry ordered a special 'Captain of Aircraft' armband be issued, mainly to Sergeant pilots who could cover their stripes with it.
This clearly identified who was 'in charge' of the aircraft.

Constructed of RAF blue serge, with a light blue barathea panel which has a gilt metal eagle and crown over an embroidered 'C'.
The inside is heavy cotton fabric lined with Newey Fasteners and a central hook to hold the armband over the Sgt. stripe.

In a very good condition, with some light wear to the light blue panel (see photos).
