RAF North West Frontier Aircrew “Fug Boots”

An extremely rare and good pair of the “India Pattern” Fug Boots used by RAF aircrew operating on the North West Frontier of India. The thigh length upper section of quilted felt, with leather trimmed shoe section. Complete with leather retaining straps. The felt has no moth damage, but some service wear, with a few period field repairs to the felt. Overall a Very Good Clean Pair.

These North West Frontier Fug boots were worn by RAF aircrew including those of 27 Squadron which operated the Bristol Fighter aircraft and this is confirmed by the cover photograph of the Chez Bowyer book “Pink’s War” which details operation on the North West Frontier 1925
