Hawker Hurricane Crash Relics
A rather interesting selection of clearly identifiable crash recovered Hurricane aircraft parts although sadly the details of the wreck from which they were salvaged has not been recorded. Perhaps most impressive is the Rolls Royce Merlin engine compressor type A.V.A.M. which was used on both the Spitfire and Hurricanes to facilitate the use of the flaps and also for cocking the machine guns mounted in each wing. It is profusely stamped with various numbers as well as an A.I.D mark. Despite being in semi relic condition it has been nicely conserved and is very stable. The large rectangular item is a section recovered from the aircrafts TR9D radio transmitter/ receiver. We can only speculate the last messages that were transmitted through it but we hope the pilot was able to bail out before the aircraft crashed. This piece measures 12" x 8"x 4.5" (30cm x 20 cm 12 cm) This, like all the pieces in this collection, has been professionally conserved. We also offer a section of alloy tubing, which would have formed part of the Hurricane's airframe and the group is completed by what we believe a part of a Rolls Royce Merlin engine block stud. In summary an identifiable grouping relating to one of the iconic fighters of the Battle and Britain and WW 11, which would benefit from being display mounted.
