5344 Spitfire X 4473 & Messerschmitt BF109E Crash Relics - Click for the bigger picture SoldSpitfire X 4473 & Messerschmitt BF109E Crash Relics - Mounted in a glazed frame with information concerning both aircraft. The Spitfire served with 58 OTU and was lost near Cardiff 14.07.43. The 109 flew with 3 Jagdgeschwader 51 (Molders Unit) and was shot down on 27th November, 1940 crashing near Iden Green, Kent. Frame measures 15" x 12" (38cm x 30cm)
5243 Propeller Tip Souvenir from 41 Fighter Reconnaissance Wing Hawarden - Click for the bigger picture SoldPropeller Tip Souvenir from 41 Fighter Reconnaissance Wing Hawarden - We were told when we purchased this item that it was recovered from a Gladiator propeller. On close inspection we noticed scratched into the propeller is 41 OTU 7.03.45 Hawarden, Chester. It would appear therefore this tip was recovered from a crash at Hawarden on this date. If any visitors can provide further information, we would be happy to add details to our listing. In late 1944 41 OTU was operating Hurricanes, Spitfires, Harvard, Martinet, Proctor and Dominie aircraft. 6.5" (17cm)
5299 Airspeed Oxford Propeller Tip & Data Plate - Click for the bigger picture SoldAirspeed Oxford Propeller Tip & Data Plate - These items originated from an RAF propeller circa 1940 which was powered by a Cheetah X engine with left hand rotation. The brass plaque has been removed from the hub and both items carry original RAF paint. Sadly we have no provenance of the aircraft from which they were removed. 7" (18cm)
5298 RAF Propeller Tip Picture Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Propeller Tip Picture Frame - A fine example of WWII trenchart with a picture frame insert featuring an RAF airman in great coat and forage cap. Mounted above is an RAF other ranks cap badge. The reverse has a hand crafted alloy support for desk use. We checked inside in case the picture was identified but sadly it is not. We did find, however, a further photograph most probably of the same airman which was marked La Rue Suliman Pacha, La Caire, so our frame appears to have originated from Egypt and would have been made from a propeller taken from a crashed British, German or Italian aircraft. La Rue Suliman Pacha, Cairo was renamed in 1964.
3352 USAAF 'Flighter by Bancroft' Officer's Summer Crusher Cap in Tan - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF 'Flighter by Bancroft' Officer's Summer Crusher Cap in Tan - This is an excellent issued example named to H.W. Beraufen inside the leather peak. The internal hat band is embossed Flighter by Bancroft curve controlled. An original gilt officer's badge is attached and the leather chinstrap is in place. No moth damage and a well above average example of this classic WWII crusher. No size marked but appears to be about a medium.
3080 RAF Hullavington Presertation Tankard - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Hullavington Presertation Tankard - Engraved to front 'Presented to the Officers Mess Hullavington by No. 2 E.C.F.S. Course October 1942'. Hullavington in Wiltshire opened as a flying training school in 1942. A new unit termed the Empire Central Flying School (ECFS) was formed and on 15th July, 1942 no. 2 course flying Blenheim V's started. It was customary to present a gift to the officers mess on completion of the course and clearly that it where this tankard then served. It is marked on the base Walker & Hall, Sheffield, 1 pint capacity. RAF Hullavington closed in 1965. If our tankard could talk, it would clearly have some tales to tell!
1721 Trench Art Jewelery or Trinket Box - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Jewelery or Trinket Box - Beautifully made using timber taken from a laminated wooden propeller. The unknown hand that made this piece certainly had excellent woodwork skills and it is far superior to most we see. With close fitting lid and velvet lined interior. Probably dates to WWI. Measures 8"(20cm) long.
4666 Harvard I & II Spade Grip AH2242 - Click for the bigger picture SoldHarvard I & II Spade Grip AH2242 - A classic example of a WWII RAF spade grip which is similar in many ways to an early Spitfire example but as the Harvard had toe operated brakes, there was no requirement for a brake lever or guide plates. Both hydrolic pipes are in place and the gun button, finished in alloy rather than brass, works as intended. In original black paint with a near perfect grip cover, it would be hard to find a more original example.
2202 RAF ' Scramble Bell' dated 1942 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF ' Scramble Bell' dated 1942 - An original example of the larger size which also features a most impressive King's Crown, AM and dated 1942. We purchased this bell privately in Devon, South West England but sadly have no provenance as to where it served. The crown hanger is stamped R.O. and carries the remains of the original red paint. This bell is made from nickel silver and the knocks on the outside indicate it has certainly seen service. As often the case, the original clapper is missing but we will supply with a modern brass replacement. The ultimate item for the serious RAF collector. Measures 12" (30cm) and weighs c.20kg without packaging so please check with us before ordering.
PC167 Supermarine Spitfire Head Armour Plate - Click for the bigger picture SoldSupermarine Spitfire Head Armour Plate - This is a replica of the steel armour plate introduced in February 1940 for the protection of the pilot's head. In addition to this the pilot also had an armour plate to protect his back and further armour for protection of the glycol tank. This item has been copied from an original but is for display purposed only or for a static cockpit project. Measures 22" x 16" (56cm x 42cm) and weighs 8.2kg unpacked, so please check delivery costs with us before ordering.
5426 RAF Periscoptic Sextant Mk. 11A, model no. 6B/434-3796 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Periscoptic Sextant Mk. 11A, model no. 6B/434-3796 - This example comes complete with a fitted transit case, appears to date from 1961 and was manufactured by Kelvin Hughes. Complete with cables. These instruments carried a 3 volt system for the lamp and a 24 volt system for the heater. They were used on pressurised aircraft such as the RAF V Bomber Force and enabled the navigator to establish the aircraft's true position when other navigation aids were unavailable. In good issued condition although we cannot guarantee the instrument is in working order or air worthy! Case measures 18" (46cm)
4487 WWII Fighter Aircraft Radio Antenna Mast - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Fighter Aircraft Radio Antenna Mast - The design and dimensions seem to conform to that used on the P51 Mustang, although without any data information we cannot be certain of the aircraft it came from. Finished in natural timber, in service it would have had a metal sheath cover. Evidence of earthing strips near base. Generally very good condition. Measures 31" (94cm)
4883 RAF Ditching Whistle - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Ditching Whistle - This vital tool was issued to all aircrew in WWII and often attached to the battle dress collar or to the Mae West life jacket to be used for attracting attention in a crash situation. Crisply marked with AM, King' Crown and 23/230. On the reverse is marked 93/14/L1795. Chrome in good overall condition and full working order!
3300 RFC Mk. V Aviator's Panel Watch - Click for the bigger picture SoldRFC Mk. V Aviator's Panel Watch - This example is marked on the dial 30 hour non luminous Mk. V and maker code is B.K. and numbered 5787. B.K. indicates this instrument was manufactured by Electra. The reverse of the case is engraved with the RFC property mark of an A with a broad arrow below. This device was used on RFC watches between 1914 - 1917. The watch is in running order although we cannot guarantee its accuracy and on sale as a collectable. The enamel dial has repaired damage at the 10 o'clock position but generally a good example from the early days of aviation with a clean case and excellent crystal.
5448b RAF Panel Watch Holder - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Panel Watch Holder - Dating from WWII, this simply clip device could be attached on the aircraft's instrument panel or front of the navigator or bomb aimer's position to attach a stopwatch for timing bomb runs, etc. The plastic back is drilled for bolts and the watch case is protected by a felt pad. It is becoming increasingly hard to find. Diameter 2" (5cm)
5448a RAF Pilot or Navigator's Stopwatch Mk. IIIA - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Pilot or Navigator's Stopwatch Mk. IIIA - The reverse of the case is unusually simply marked with a AM, a King's Crown and 818, rather than the normally seen code 6B/117 or 6B/221. The main dial is graduated from 0-60 seconds and the subsidiary 0-30 minutes. This example has been personally highlighted in red at the 7 and 10 minute marks and clearly an addition made by the original owner. It appears in good working order, although on sale as a collectable and we cannot guarantee its time keeping properties. Please also see associated item 5448B.
4468 Air Ministry Hasler Revolution, Circumference and Cutting Speed Indicator - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Hasler Revolution, Circumference and Cutting Speed Indicator - These instruments were produced by the Hasler Telegraph Works and first marketed in April 1915. This example is Air Ministry (AM) marked with King's Crown and would have been used in RFC and RAF workshops to check the rotation speed of lathes and engines up to 10, 000 rpm. The instrument is Swiss made and comes in a velvet lined fitted case. The patent mark on the backplate indicates a date of 1914. When new the retail price was a massive £6.00! A wonderful instrument dating to the very early days of aviation. Sold as a collectable. Case diameter 2.75" (7cm)
524 Air Ministry Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - The instrument is engraved 6A/1246 with King's Crown and AM stamp. These compasses were used to take bearings from the aircraft in circumstances when the fixed type of observer's compass could not be used. The handle has an internal space for a dry cell battery for illumination of the compass card. Some compass oil has evaporated and the compass card does not currently swing, although would be possible to top up oil but on offer as a display item only. Complete with original transit box with dates stamps to lid indicating 1939, 1940 and 1945. Measures 9.5" (24cm)
2553 Aircraft Control Grip from North American T-6 Texan - Click for the bigger picture SoldAircraft Control Grip from North American T-6 Texan - This aircraft was also known as the Harvard while in RAF service as an advanced trainer. This grip is in good original condition, although the pneumatic tubes have been cut. The metalwork is sound and the grip cover is in excellent shape. This aircraft, as well as being an advanced trainer, could also be fitted with a.30 machine gun for gunnery training. The grip is therefore fitted with a round brass gun button with a rotating safety catch in good working order. The item is stamped with AH2242 and CGO9684. This was previously used with a brake level fitted on my replica Spitfire cockpit section but as I now have an original Spit grip, this one is now looking for a new home. Measures 7.5" (19cm)
5214 RAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - The cloth is in good flown condition with minor staining. Colours are vibrant. Minor wear to the cloth edge by the rope but nothing serious. Various ink stamps, although somewhat faded. The RAF eagle shown on top left of the pennant is of leather and was designed to differentiate the Squadron Leader's pennant from the Wing Commander's. Complete with coir rope and Ingfield clips. 31" x 21" (79cm x 53cm)
