BOAC

These very collectible slippers and fan were donated to Vintage Vision by a lady who had travelled to the far east several years ago. The airline company which later became known as BOAC was originally the British Overseas Airways Corporation which was the British state airline from 1939 to 1946 and the long-haul British state airline from 1946 to 1974. Previous to becoming BOAC the company was Imperial Airways and in addition to training pilots in the UK, BOAC operated a tropical training school in Soroti, north east Uganda.
