6159 RNAS Pilots Note and Radio Beacon Flight Board - Click for the bigger picture SoldRNAS Pilots Note and Radio Beacon Flight Board - this example would appear to have been made up in the workshops rather than being an issue item but it exudes charm. The item is made from varnished marine ply and on the from is a sheet of clear Perspex held in place by bulldog clips to allow a note pad or page from a chart to be inserted. The reverse carries a circular diagram to the top with what we believe to be radio beacon codes. Below this is a list of 13 Royal Naval Air Stations with details of their listening channels, identity and ‘safe sector’ Further information is shown concerning heights as well as a Naval C.G.A Whiskey’ legend (Ground Control Approach) And a final reference to ‘Fixer Service –Victor’ but the meaning of this is lost on me. We suspect no huge age but a nice example of more recent RNAS flight equipment. Measures 11” x 5.5” (28 cm x 14 cm)
4737 Luft-Navigationskarte Flight Chart dated 27 June 1940 - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuft-Navigationskarte Flight Chart dated 27 June 1940 - a superb original example covering a major part of Western Europe including Switzerland, Luxemburg, Denmark, Poland, Rumania and of course large parts of Germany (including ‘The Big City’) and Austria. Clearly marked with the Luftwaffe insignia to the top and issued in Berlin in 1940 so a genuine Battle of Britain survivor. This is a paper chart so minor age related wear on the folds and some pin holes to corners but seeing it is now 73 years old it is in exceptional condition. It comes in a card case marked Union-Mappe nr 494/1 We can’t say for sure this is original with the map but it seems likely. The case shows rather more age wear then the chart! It does have a name written in ink but with the Gothic script we have been unable to decipher. This is a large chart measuring when unfolded 51” x 46” (130 cm x 117 cm).
6168 German V1 flying bomb FZG-76 'Everacting' fuse model 80A - Click for the bigger picture SoldGerman V1 flying bomb FZG-76 'Everacting' fuse model 80A - the V-1 (or doodlebug as it was more often known) was the worlds first guided missile and the first was launched on London on 13 June 1944. Our fuse is the model 80A and was fitted in the rear fuse pocket. The arming pin hidden beneath the screw cap would be pulled before launch. This enables a pin from the clockwork mechanism to be pulled out thus setting the clock in motion and at the same time removes the safety cap under the head of the striker. The mechanism can be set to run from 4 and up to 132 minutes. On completing of the pre set time a pin engages and the firing pin moves against the cap. The flash from the cap then detonates the bomb and this mechanical fuse guarantees the bomb will detonate irrespective of angle of landing or if the rest of the fusing system failed. Our fuse is correctly marked on the ring pull retainer 80A and much of the original field grey paint is in place with a little rust on the screw cap. In view of the fusing system detailed above very few of these survive today and even fewer in the condition as here. Measures 3” high x 2.25” diameter. (8 cm x6 cm)
6141 Lunkenheimer Primer - Click for the bigger picture SoldLunkenheimer Primer - We believe these were used to prime the engine before starting on aircraft such as Aeronca 7EC, but believe it should fit aircraft such as Luscombe, Cessna, Taylorcraft, Aeroncas and Piper Cubs. The design dates back to the 1940’s although we have no idea of the age of ours. This is offered for sale a a collectable but it may be possible to get it back into airworthy condition or could be used for a static rebuild. What you see is what you get with this one! Measures 6" (pump only) 15cm
6142 RAF Directional Indicator , Mk1A - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Directional Indicator , Mk1A - These instruments were fitted in the blind flying panel of all RAF and Fleet Air Arm WW11 aircraft and were designed to enable the pilot to plot a stable directional reference for accurate course steering. The instrument would be synchronised with the main compass before take off and required a venturi to work. The Mk1A entered service in 1940/1941 and remained in production until the 1950’s. This one carries the RAF stores reference number 6A/1298, a broad arrow and a further number 2191/40. An additional plaque has been fitted indicating a VPI filer has been fitted at some stage. It also carries a label issued by the Royal navy showing it had been reconditioned in 1955 and tested again in 1958. This direction indicator is in good issued condition but on offer as a collectable only and would be perfect for a replica Spitfire instrument panel project. Measures 4.5” x4.5” in front plate (12 cm x 12 cm)and is 5.5” deep (14 cm)
6196 RAF Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - RAF Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - A nice clean example stores ref. 6A/1248 and marked AM and Kings Crown. Most of the paint has been rubber from the brass compass bowl. Interestingly someone has scratched 5/42 on the bowl so this instrument clearly saw service in WW11. The compass card moves freely although the compass oil is perfect and does not suffer the usual problem of having an the air bubble in it. The sighting prism is perfect and whilst for sale as a collectable, the instrument appears to be in good working order. These compasses were used in flight for taking bearings when the fixed type of observer's compass could not be used. No transit box with this example Overall length 9" (21cm)
6140 Marconi-Newton Windmill Propeller & Generator - Click for the bigger picture SoldMarconi-Newton Windmill Propeller & Generator - the metal propeller is marked constant speed windmill and Pat No 262558/1926 Type 183. It also carries a military broad arrow property mark and an Air Ministry Reference 5U/4528 and whilst we don’t know the aircraft it came from it clearly served with the RAF. The propeller is attached to a 12 Volt generator and at 3500-4000 RPM it would have delivered 150 Watts. This unit is for sale as a collectable only although it may be the generator does still work but we are unable to offer any C of A.. The propeller measures 22.5 “ (56 cm) and the generator is 9” long (22 cm). The whole unit weighs a hefty 6 kilos so would suggest on this one overseas shipping may prove prohibitive although if you can pay we can ship worldwide!
6157 Model of Hudson mounted on Relief map of Australia - Click for the bigger picture SoldModel of Hudson mounted on Relief map of Australia - the Lockheed Hudson was an American-built light bomber and coastal reconnaissance aircraft originally supplied to the Royal Air Force shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War and primarily operated by the RAF thereafter. The Hudson also fought in the Far East serving with both the RAF, RNZAF and the RAAF. Our model is cast in brass although the colour of the metal gives a very bronzy look. The stand is fixed to an ashtray map featuring the outline of Australia. The model does not carry any makers marks and we are unable to decide if this is a fine example of trench art or a commercially made model. We have certainly never had one to this design before. It weighs in at 1.3 kilos without packing so please check with us for a delivered price before ordering, particularly for those outside the UK. Model wingspan is 7 1/4” (18.5 cm). The ‘Australia ‘ base is 8.5” x 6” (21 cm x 16 cm).
5560 Lorenz Telefunken T2 Luftwaffe Morse Code Telegraph Key - Click for the bigger picture SoldLorenz Telefunken T2 Luftwaffe Morse Code Telegraph Key - The T2 was developed for use in aircraft being a smaller and lighter key than other models and was called the Lorenz key. The name come from the factory that initially developed this key, but subsequently they were built by several suppliers. Ours is clearly marked on the data plate Gerat 124-402A-1 Werk nr.40126-40 and Anforder Z Ln 26906. The case appears to be made of Bakelite and hinges up. The mechanism has a lightning bolt in red we assume indicating high voltage within. The base features non slip rubber and is ink stamped 11 37. The only issue with this example is the cable is partly perished and no plug is fitted but this could easily be removed for display purposes. We bought this key with the DR2 ‘Knemeyer’ we have also just listed directly from the family of the wartime owner. He appears to have flown the ME 410 and we speculate this may have been removed from this aircraft. We have certainly seen the T2 being used in the ME110. Measures 6” x3” (15 cm x 8 cm)
5576 Luftwaffe Cockpit lamp Fl 322272.2 - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Cockpit lamp Fl 322272.2 - Manufactured by Siemens and like most German equipment from this period beautifully engineered. The lamp case is fished in slate grey alloy and the reverse of the case is stamped with a BAL inspectors mark, H23 and a further less clear stamp that might read 024. The lamp itself fits into a recess on the right side of the unit and features an integral loom we imagine to mount it near the crew position to free off his hands. The lamp housing looks to be made of Bakelite and is embossed Bauart with the Siemens logo and at the base 126-12.04 On the reverse is stamped Bauart 126-12.05. The lamp is missing its bulb but otherwise all seems in perfect condition. The lengthy wire contained within the case can be wound out or pulled and it would appear to have had the facility to have been used in various crew positions. We were told by the previous owner this unit was removed from an HE111 bomber although we have been unable to prove this so if any visitors can help us with a firm ID that would be appreciated. The case measures 4.5” x 4.5” (11 cm x 11 cm) whilst the lamp is c.5” long (13.5cm)
4534 Luftwaffe Bubble Octant Manufacturer by C.Plath - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Bubble Octant Manufacturer by C.Plath - These instruments were carried by Luftwaffe bombers for astronomical navigation purposes, and were operated by measuring the height of a star. An artificial horizon is provided by a bubble, similar to a spirit level, and multiple readings good be taken to compensate for the speed of the aircraft in flight. The data plate is marked Libellen-Oktant mit Mittlungseinrichtung Bauart: Gerat-Nr. 127-134 B-2 Werk-Nr. 68117 Anforderz. FI 23750 Hersteller and the maker is C.Plath. The instrument comes in its issue metal box with the hinged and folding lid set with a white metal plate printed with instructions. Interestingly on the outside if the case lid is a period paper label which reads : German Instrument from Bomber Crashed at Eaton Socton (sic) Cambridgeshire October 1940. I went on line and found details as below so that seems to confirm the crash site and date as correct and apparently many local people helped themselves to souvenirs. ‘Do215B (0060) L2+KS was on a photo-reconnaissance sortie to Coventry when it was shot-down on Thursday 24th October 1940. The aircraft came down in a shallow dive ‘behind the Crown Inn at Eaton Socon.’ The crew baled-out at very low and only one of them, Gefreiter M Dorr, survived. We have had these instruments before but always in a folding wooden case whilst this example is metal. It shows a little corrosion on base. You can see feint writing on side Look like 3/ Aufklaerungs Gruppe and below OB.d. l. although not entirely clear. On other side OC25 and could be 0060, so looks like from this information relates to the same aircraft. The instrument is in much better than relic condition and whilst it does have some spare parts fitted in the box it is not a complete example but still is a great display item and a super piece of WW11 aviation history.
PC190 RAF 13 Squadron Badge Panel - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 13 Squadron Badge Panel - 13 Squadron was formed in 1915 and took part in both World Wars as well as the first Gulf War. The squadron badge, as painted on this panel, carries the legend "Adjuvamus Tuendo"(We assist by watching.) 13 Squadron have operated a variety of aircraft over the years including the Martinsyde G.100, F.E.2, SPAD VII and XIII, the Sopwith Dolphin, Lysander, Mosquito, Meteor and Canberra. From 1990 it operated the Panavia Tornado but the Squadron was disbanded in 2011 but reformed 2012 flying the MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aerial vehicle from RAF Waddington. Whilst we have no specific history with it we were advised by a previous owner the panel had been cut from a Mosquito but we have so far been unable to categorically identify the aircraft type. The panel is constructed from wood with linen doped to the outer side. The varnished interior shows some original framing and numerous construction numbers and we would be happy to supply detailed photographs if anyone can assist us with a firm identification. In the mean time it is offered for sale as an unidentified panel featuring a fine painted badge of RAF 13 Squadron. The panel measures approximately 30"x 24" (76cm x 61cm) and would make a superb addition to an aviation collection but would look equally at home on the Mess wall!
PC189 Luftwaffe Model 306 Fliegerschutzbrille by O.W.Wagner & Co - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Model 306 Fliegerschutzbrille by O.W.Wagner & Co - flying goggles model 306 which are often referred to as by the generic term Leitz. This set are in average plus issued condition. The rubber face cushions show some age wear but are generally good for display purposes. The central nose bridge is good and is fitted with two small adjust screws. It is maker marked to the reverse O.W.The black painted alloy frames are good and are fitted with above average glass lenses. The original back strap is still elastic and in very good shape. The original issue card box and spare lenses are now absent. These goggles are now getting hard to find in any condition; these are realistically priced to reflect their overall condition
PC188 RAF Dinghy Seat Pack Type A Mark 3* - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Dinghy Seat Pack Type A Mark 3* - stores reference 27C/2088 and designed to carry the single-man fighter pilot Type K dinghy was carried folded within the pack attached to the seat type parachute in place of the usual Sorbo rubber seat cushion. Manufactured in heavy olive drab cotton canvas, broadly rectangular in shape with a separate cover attached with press-studs. These packs have internal stowage pockets to house the accessories not carried within the dinghy itself. This example benefits from being fitted with an emergency rubber water cushion for drinking purposes stamped 27C/2138 and enclosed within a canvas zipped cover marked 27C/2138 and Jecco. The exterior of the pack carries a multi-lingual label stitched to the cover in we believe English, French, Czech and Polish. The pack is complete withy lanyard and connectors to attach to the '41 pattern Mae West. The whole set is in virtually mint faultless condition and would be impossible to improve upon.
PC187 RAF 1941 Pattern Sidcot Suit stores reference 22C/777 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 1941 Pattern Sidcot Suit stores reference 22C/777 - this was the final wartime development of the Sidcot suit of WW11. Identical to the 1940 pattern but with the addition of an electrical wiring system to allow use in conjunction with D type heated gloves and boot liners and was favoured for use by aircrew of Bomber Command. Manufacture in heavy olive drab canvas it was designed to be used with a kapok liner for additional warmth. This is a very clean example and benefits from being fitted with all original zips which are all AM and Kings Crown marked. All in working order with just a single tooth missing on the left sleeve zip. The electrical wiring loom is still in place with the correct snaps at wrist and ankles. Inside the suit is also very clean with a clear AM marked label indicating the suit is large size 5 suitable for height 5'10" to 5'11". All original buttons are fitted and this suit would be hard to improve upon particularly in this hard to find large size. Ideal for display or re-enactment purposes.
PC186 RAF Observers Parachute pack - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Observers Parachute pack - whilst this example has had its label removed the stores reference number is 15A/141. The two point detachable chest pack was stored separately in the aircraft and designed to be clipped to the Observers harness by the engagement of a pair of steel loops mounted on the reverse with a pair of hooded snap-hooks located on the chest. This example is manufactured the usual sandy coloured cotton canvas which shows average service wear. It is complete with all the webbing grab handles and is fitted with the D-ring ripcord handle stamped IAC (Irvin Air Chute); the rip cord handle housing shows some stitch repairs. The pack is fitted with a full set on elastic bungees which show some stretching but overall it is in very good used condition with light soiling and minor wear to the grab handles. No canopy fitted but the pack is stuffed with a polypropylene block so has the correct shape for display or re-enactment purposes. These are now getting extremely difficult to find and particularly so with all the ‘plumbing’.Please check out the complementary Observers harness which we have also just listed.
PC185 RAF Observers parachute harness Stores Refrence 15A/137 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Observers parachute harness Stores Refrence 15A/137 - manufactured by G & T.L. & stamped with serial number 92369. Designed for use with clip-on chest-type parachute packs. This is a genuine RAF/British manufactured example rather than more commonly found Canadian version. Cream/white webbing with a central black fleck;both shoulder straps are stamped AM with a Kings Crown property mark. The harness features the fully rounded QR box as fitted to wartime British harnesses as opposed to the D shaped QRB found on RCAF and post war issue examples. The pack attachment clips are again in perfect condition and fully functioning. Fitted with an original back pad which is again in good condition but some minor staining;it does not seem to have ever carried a label. The harness is well above average condition and the QRB functions perfectly. Mick Prodger's excellent 'Luftwaffe V RAF Flight Equipment' features a near identical example by the same maker illustrated on page 18. A very fine original example of what is becoming increasingly hard to find. Please see the complementary observer parachute pack we have also just listed.
PC184 One Flight Too Many - Click for the bigger picture SoldOne Flight Too Many - One Flight Too Many I was delighted to received a copy of this excellent volume for Christmas and can recommend it as an excellent read. It covers the often forgotten art of Photographic Reconnaissance (PR) and is written by a former PR Spitfire pilot, Jimmy Taylor. It gives a very clear description of what he had to do, the aircraft and cameras he was given, how he planned and took his photographs, and how he navigated his way, alone and unarmed under constant observation by enemy radar, to his distant targets. This is also Jimmy Taylor’s autobiography, so the reader has access to his frank contemporary diary of autumn 1944 and goes with him on his exciting sorties, including when he was chased by a then-unknown German jet, and his last one, when his engine blew up and forced him to parachute into a part of eastern Holland and led to his eventual capture with details of the heroic behaviour of the Dutch Resistance. Taylor's story is told with humour and modesty and makes for fascinating reading, and is enhanced with hundreds of photographs taken at the time, including some of his own sorties. This is a great book in every sense: it will enlighten readers who are curious about the work of the PR squadrons and will fascinate aviation enthusiasts of all ages myself included! We do not actually stock this volume but it can be purchased for £27.50 plus shipping from the distributor, YPD Books at www. ypdbooks. com or from your local bookseller. Pages: 756 Cover: Hard Author: Jimmy Taylor
5295 Fleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFleet Air Arm C type Flying Helmet - This pattern differs from the RAF version in having zip receiver cups fitted and as a result is often mis-identified as an RAF B type. This example is in average + issued condition with the leather shell showing some age wear. It is fully wired and interestingly the receivers fitted are USN/USAAF model ANB-H-1, manufactured by Western Electric and we speculate the helmet may have found its way to a US airman in WWII. The receiver cups also have Gosport tube attachments fitted. The wiring loom shows some fraying. The inside is good issued condition. No size markings but we believe this helmet corresponds to a decent RAF size 3. Not mint but a very decent disply example on offer at a realistic price.
6100 RAF Bino Prism U-Boat Spotting Mk.IV Binoculars - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Bino Prism U-Boat Spotting Mk.IV Binoculars - A very clean set marked with stores ref. 6E/383, featuring 5 x 40 cemented prisms and were the very first wartime binoculars to use coated lenses. This design is fixed focus and intended for aerial spotting and maritime reconnaissance. The same pattern was also used by Fleet Air Arm crews. The serial number on these is 5084 which seem to date them to a WWII manufacture. The rubber face guard was designed to help the user maintain night vision. The Mk IV's were made by Ross for the RAF and first entered service in 1941. The optics are still crisp and this set benefits from being complete with it transit case. The neck strap is not original.
