Here's an classic & original WW2 Pilots Silk Scarf probably made by TOOTLE. Long scarf in typical style as you see them wearing

Hmm, I think that this company started up post-war. I have a scarf made by them, but I had read that it wasn't a war-time company

Tootal was started in 1845 in England and, as such, is one of this countries oldest clothing brands still extant.

Thanks for that! Now I'm scratching my head and wondering where I read that from :P LOL. (unless it was a collection of their scarves, as I was looking at some a few years back on eBay when I neaded one for my pilots impression. I found a cravat by tootal at a bootfair for a couple of quid which was a steel :P ) SO this information that they are wartime is great news to me!
