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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

4837 RAF Height and Air Speed Computer Mk. I - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Height and Air Speed Computer Mk. I - This is fare scarcer than the more commonly found Ican flight computer.

Ltd of London and Brighton. A similar example is shown in Prodger's RAF Flight Equipment book page 113 but ours is the earlier Mk. I version. Diameter 6" (15cm)

5045 Single Barrel Leuchtpistole - Click for the bigger picture SoldSingle Barrel Leuchtpistole - The classic type carried by Luftwaffe single seat fighter pilots and many bomber crews both during the Battle of Britain and subsequently. This example is made by Erma-Erfurt and carries the classic date 1940. While we have no provenance with it, it is likely to have served in the Summer of 1940 and during the Battle of Britain. Excellent grips, lanyard ring and metalwork. The flare pistol comes with a deactivation certificate and can be legally owned in the UK without the need of a fire arms certificate.
3210 RAF B type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF B type Flying Helmet - Fitted with original label indicating manufactured by Frank Bryan with stores ref. no. 22C/65. This example is a size 2 and also carries the desirable 1940 Battle of Britain date. The leather shell is in generally good issued condition with just minor flaking to the surface. Both Bennett buckles are complete but lacking the leather outer covers. Excellent chin strap with chrome end still in place. Receiver cups and housings are in place with functioning zips and feint AM stamps to the leather. Good RCAF issue foams are fitted in the receiver housings but lacking receivers. Inside the lining is sound but grubby. The helmet is named J. A. Wood. We have no specific provenance but have found a Fl. Lt. John Alexander Wood who flew with 76 squadron, so he could possibly be our man. This is a nice display example of the most desirable of the wartime RAF flying helmets as used throughout the Battle of Britain. This item would display well with the RAF goggles which we have listed.
5106 RAF Mk. III Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk. III Flying Goggles - Most examples of these we see are RCAF issue but this pair are a scarce Air Ministry marked goggle, dating to 1935.

The perspex lenses are excellent as is the leather face mask and velvet sections. The canvas spring covers are good but the springs are showing some distortion, although mounted with a display helmet, they look fine. The bridge stops and vents are all perfect. A rare example of pre war and Battle of Britain period flying goggles. They would display well with the RAF B type helmet we are also listing.
