Ext Rare Pre / Early WWII Burmese Blood Chit Smaller Size Printed on Linen AVG Use??
SOLD!!! No Longer Available!
ARTIFACT: This is an extremely rare, very early, Blood Chit in the Chinese "Flag at Top" style, printed / manufactured for use by RAF pilots, most Likely in the circa 1940 period. It can also be surmised that AVG American Volunteer Group Flying Tigers Pilots could have carried an early Burmese chit like this, especially those in the Second Squadron, Panda Bears, working with the RAF and based early on in Rangoon. Or also the First Squadron, Adam & Eves, in their defense of the Burma Road. But this is only conjecture currently, as this is the only example of this chit that I, or renowned author on the subject, Robert Baldwin, have ever seen.
VINTAGE: Circa 1940s.
SIZE: Approximately 7-13/16" in height x 6-3/4" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: This chit was silk screened on linen, and then the edges were folded over and the entire chit was doped, to help it hold up in the tropical climate of the area.
ITEM NOTES: This is from a Great Britain Commonwealth Militaria collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON-REB-20-19 LBGIEX03/03/21 SBGJJX03/04/21
CONDITION: 8+ (Excellent) Excellent condition. Very little wear, some signs of having been folded long ago. Light foxing to small areas of the white linen add a lovely look.
