RAF Tempest Fighter Pilot's Rescue Dinghy Relic Parts
Displayed within a glazed frame, the components are probably from a K-type single seater dinghy issued to fighter pilots. These relics were recovered from the authorised excavation of the crash site of Hawker Tempest JN765 that fell at Winchelsea in Sussex on 1st July, 1945. While being in relic condition, a rubber grab handle is clearly identifiable. Frame measures 18" x 12.5" (46cm x 31cm).
