INCREDIBLY RARE OPPORTUNITY    'Great Escape' Guards helmet.

Items from not only a participant of the legendary WWII ’Great Escape’ but from a significant contributor.

Direct from late Wing Commander Nunn’s estate.

Nunn was the officer charged with calculating the length of the escape tunnel ‘Harry’.
This task proved to be of major significance to the outcome of the whole escape attempt.
His eventual calculation proved to be flawed resulting in the tunnel being famously short & the escape being prematurely discovered.

The rest is now history……………

WOW Rare pieces from AV Aviation

Original Stalag Luft III Luftwaffe guards helmet + Intelligence 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

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 Nunn's 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 forage 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.
