I have two of the cabin bags (plus a few other BOAC items).

I have a log book going back to 1970.

Got it on a flight from Sydney to Wellington NZ.

Fantastic stuff, wish I had more.

I have a little paper fan with the above artwork and the words "All Around The World, BOAC Takes Good Care Of You"

I believe it is from a HKG-HND VC10 flight

We had 2 of the Cabin bags years ago. Mom let them get away in a garage sale, after I left home in the 80s. Such luck. My sister still has an old Pan American bag, and I have one from JAL circa 1965. Oh the memories.

I have a 1960's BOAC Ceramic Water Pitcher. They were used on the first class trays. I love it!

Loved it !

I especially liked the prices of the "Speedbird Gift Shop" items expressed in pounds, shillings and pence, a great reminder of the pre-decimal era
