4727 Curtiss Jenny JN4A Builders plate - Click for the bigger picture SoldCurtiss Jenny JN4A Builders plate - an incredibly rare original example marked ‘The Curtiss Aeroplane co Buffalo, N.Y. U.S.A’. The aircraft number is detailed as 5605 and the model is JN4A so we imagine it would be possible to check the airframe this plate came from. Our research indicates the Jenny first flew in 1915 and whilst 6, 813 were built in total only 471 JN4A variants were produced. Interestingly on the back of the plaque someone has scratched August 15th 1917 and we speculate this might have been the date the aircraft came out of service and the plate removed from the airframe. If any visitors can add any relating history we would be happy to add to our description. The plaque was purchased privately here in England and as the Jenny served with the Royal Flying Corps with both 24 and 25 Squadrons, as well as with the RNAS, so perhaps 5605 was one of these aircraft? The plaque is chromed with the company details set in enamel. We have certainly never seen another for sale so grab this piece of aviation history whilst you can! Small but beautifully formed at 2.2" diameter (5.5 cm)
4550 German Army Coffee or Tea mug - Click for the bigger picture SoldGerman Army Coffee or Tea mug - an essential bit of German Army kit! This features on its base a Third Reich Waffenamt identifying the cup as belonging to the German Army, or Heer and is dated 1942. The manufacturer is Concordia. In good issued condition. Measures 4" high (10cm)
4548 Battle of Britain period Luftwaffe Mess Plate - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain period Luftwaffe Mess Plate - very crisply marked on reverse with Luftwaffe Eagle and Fl. U.V. Below it has a crest which confirms the German Military Reichwaffenamt. It is also dated 1940 so certainly would have served through the Battle of Britain. It is in good used condition and measures 9.5” (24cm)
6200 Battle of Britain RAF Pilots Bust - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain RAF Pilots Bust - we understand these were made using 90% white Italian Carrara marble giving it an authentic look and feel. The pilot depicted is wearing the classic flight gear associated with the Battle Of Britain. He is sporting a fully wired B type helmet, MK111A goggles and a 1932 pattern Mae West over his no 1 Uniform as well as a classic silk flyers scarf. We are not sure if the bust represents a specific pilot but prefer to think he is a generic sculpture of ‘One of the Few’. He weighs in at 2.2 Kilos so please check with us for a delivered price before ordering. Measures 8” (20 cm) No makers marks.
6199 RAF Mess Plate - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mess Plate - almost certainly dating from WW11 and judging by the crude build quality we are assuming it served in the Other Ranks Mess! The rim carries the RAF logo and above a King Crown. On the reverse the makers marks indicate Bristol Established 1683. Some age crazing but generally good issued condition. This plate comes with a sprung wall hanger, if required. Measures 9.5” (24cm)
6201 RAF Trench Art Cigarette Box - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Trench Art Cigarette Box - a very nicely worked example in mahogany with an RAF Albatross badge applied to the lid This would appear to have been ‘borrowed’ from an Officers forage cap badge! When opened two fitted trays pop up with each holding 20 cigarettes. Elastic strips hold the cigarettes in place which are now slightly stretched. We don’t have any provenance with it but suspect may have been created in the Middle East or North Africa in WW11. it measures 8.5” x 5” and stands 3” tall (22 cm x 13 cm x 8 cm).
6151 RFC/RNAS Trench Art dated 1918-19 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRFC/RNAS Trench Art dated 1918-19 - a fine example of Trench art fashioned from the top section of an engine cylinder. On it is worked a fine Albatross and above ‘Engine Repair Shops’ and below ‘France 1918-19’ so would date it to the transition period when the RAF and RNAS amalgamated into the RAF. Cast into the underside is L.D.C.F.L although we have been unable to ID the engine it came from so if anyone can help please drop us a line and we will add to our description. Measures 4.5” diameter and 1” high (11 cm x 2.25 cm)
6149 RAF Form 700 Aircraft Log Book Inspection Bag - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Form 700 Aircraft Log Book Inspection Bag - a critical piece of kit without which RAF aircraft simply did not fly! The Form 700 bag effectively contained the individual aircrafts log book and carried a full record of any problems or issues the airframe might have suffered. These were were reported to the ground crew using the Form 700 and the four page flight engineers log was handed in for review and signature after return from a trip. Our bag seems to be made from the same material as the hugely desirable navigators bag. It shows normal service grub to the outside and with details stencilled on the front as show. When this came in we had not history with it but after a bit of detective work we speculated KJ 880 could have been the A/C registration. We have been able to establish KJ880 was designated to to an RAF Dakota 1V and a little of her WW11 and post war history is summarised below : C-47B-5-DK, 43-48564 D26Aug44 - KJ880 RAF Montreal 110ct44 - 147 Sq - 1333 (TS)CU 18Nov46 - Med ME 08Jul48 - Iraq Comm Flt 22Jul48 - 22MU/UK 28Sep50 - G-AMSF BKS Aerocharter Ltd "Whitten Brown" R21Apr52 - BKS Air Tpt Ltd ROlJan54 - Op as XF646 for troop contracts during 1954 - Crewsair Ltd Jan59 - Don Everall (Avn) Ltd R26Mar59 - Alares Developments Ltd Jun60 - Cr 05Mar62 Elmdon Apt, Birmingham. Sadly the bag is now empty but an interesting an unusual artefact the like of which we have not had here before.
6198 RAF Issue Aircrew Stop Watch 6B/221 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Issue Aircrew Stop Watch 6B/221 - this example dates from 1940 when it was issued as a 6B/117 the standard RAF code for a General Purpose stop watch. The instrument then clearly went back to the stores in 1941 and was over stamped with stores reference code 6B/221 with a new reference number and re issue date of 1941. The code 6B/221 indicates it was for use as a substitute watch and not when I high degree of accuracy was required, as by a Navigator. According to Ziggy Weslolowski in his excellent book on Military Timepieces this could have been used by a Lancaster pilot as a back up mounted on his panel should other instruments pack up on an Op. This example does run for some seconds but the hands then sticks and this is how it was when it came in. We would imagine not a massive job to get it serviced/cleaned but we are now offering for sale in A/F condition as an interesting example showing the evolution of wartime stop watches. It carries a large and crisp Kings Crown engraving to the rear of the case.
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.
