The parts comes from a British Barrage Balloon used during world war 2 over a RAF base. A large section of balloon was found when renovating an old 1806 cottage near RAF Ludham in Norfolk which was a RAF base during the war. The material was being used as a waterproof membrane under the tiles of a large out house when the builders discovered it. The previous owner of the cottage used to work on the RAF base as a civilian worker during and after the war and that is how it is thought that is how they came by it. The item comes with a A5 laminated information sheet with pictures and is a very rare pair of parts because there is little to non original barrage balloon around these days.
