3828 RFC Napkin Ring - Click for the bigger picture SoldRFC Napkin Ring - A scarce and extremely decorative silver Royal Flying Corp napkin ring. This is engraved to the front with the RFC initials and above No. 1 Squadron April 1912. This squadron was formed on 13th April, 1912 at Farnborough by redesignating 1 (Airship) Company, Air Battalion and Royal Engineers and represents the first squadron in the newly formed Royal Flying Corp. The inside of the ring is feintly stamped silver but no hallmarks are present.
3660 RAF 60th Anniversary Commemorative Glass - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF 60th Anniversary Commemorative Glass - Finely engraved with the RAF crest surmounted by Per Ardva Ad Astra and below 1918-1978. This glass was clearly issued to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the RAF and is in perfect condition. It would sit happily in an RAF collection but with its heavy base would make an extremely practical whiskey tumbler.
1625 RAF GQ Parachute Pack & Harness - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF GQ Parachute Pack & Harness - The pack is nicely labelled confirming type B Mk.19 and RAF Stores ref. 15A/946. This also carries a GQ acceptance stamp and dated 4th October, 1960. The pack also carries a further label marked GQ Parachute Assembly Back Type Mk. 26A stores ref. 15A/917. The canopy is enclosed and while we have not been able to inspect it, it looks to be complete. The set also includes a full harness with quick release buckle and D ring release mechanism and cable. Other than the bungees being missing, the set appears complete and would complement an RAF display representing 1960's air crew. On offer as a collector's item and certainly not warranted for its original purpose!
4403 Trench Art Propeller Tip Picture Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Propeller Tip Picture Frame - This example came in with item 4402 and looks to have been made by the same hand. This one carries a carved eagle and could possibly represent the Royal Navy Air Service. The propeller is made from laminated mahogany and as it features dowel construction, it is an early propeller almost certainly dating to WWI. The base of the frame has been ornately carved while the reverse features a stand for table display. It simple needs for the new owner to add a photograph or painting to the glazed opening to complete. Measures 13" (33cm).
4402 Propeller Tip Picture Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldPropeller Tip Picture Frame - While we have seen many such examples of Trench Art over the years, this one is in a class of its own. The front of the blade has been hand carved featuring a plant in flower to the tip and a further example to the bottom with a central cut out with scalloped edge to enable a picture to be displayed. The rear is plain and carries a support for table display. The blade appears to be mahogany and is a standard laminated construction. It just requires the new owner to add a suitable photograph or painting to the glazed aperture. Almost certainly dating from WWI period. Measures 13" (34cm)
2606 RCAF Identity Bracelet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRCAF Identity Bracelet - Named on one side of the silvered tag C.4284 R. Canning RCAF and on the reverse side From the Boys of 12 R.D. It also carries what appears to be a maker's mark cmc. The chain is brass and comes in a period velvet lined presentation box, although we believe this originally held cufflinks. We have no provenance with this item but if any visitors can identify Mr. Canning or confirm who were the boys from 12 R.D., we will add details to the description.
4445 RAF Fish Serving Fork - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Fish Serving Fork - Clearly stamped on the handle with a King's Crown, RAF and laurel leaves, while the reverse has the maker's mark and logo Walker Hall. We are unsure of what metal it is made from but it is not hallmarked. It no doubt saw service in an officer's mess and could well date from WWII period. Measures 9" (23cm)
2738 151 Fighter Squadron Presentation Tankard - Click for the bigger picture Sold151 Fighter Squadron Presentation Tankard - A fine barrel shaped example, engraved "Presented to 151 Fighter Squadron by Lt. D. R. Stanley Adams, R.N. late 151 Squadron Aug. 1936 - Aug. 1938." 151 Squadron was formed in May 1918 and saw service on the Western Front but was disbanded the following year. The squadron was then reformed in 1936 at North Weald, Essex flying Gauntlets and in 1938 was the first squadron to be equipped with Hurricanes and her pilots served with distinction in the Battle of Britain. We assume Stanley Adams was a Fleet Air Arm pilot seconded to the RAF and this tankard was presented to the officers' mess when he returned to the navy. The base is stamped with various hallmarks but we cannot decipher if it is silver. It also carries the number 7112 and 41. In nice original condition. Measures 4" (11cm).
2978 2nd Tactical Air Force BLA Tankard - Click for the bigger picture Sold2nd Tactical Air Force BLA Tankard - Solid silver tankard with fine engraved crest named to 83 Group Main and below an eagle flying above a shield featuring a sword, a bee and a reverse swastika. Below the shield is the legent 2nd Tactical Air Force BLA. While the hallmarks are slightly rubbed, they appear to date the tankard to 1944. It has received a few knocks over the last 64 years but this is more than made up for by the fine engraving to the front. We have not had the opportunity to research this item.
1753 Trench Art Trinket Box - Click for the bigger picture SoldTrench Art Trinket Box - Made from a laminated propeller piece with removable top and felt lined interior. Almost certainly dating from first World War. Very nice patina and skillfully executed. Ideal for storing cufflinks or the family jewels! Measured on the base 6.5" (16cm)
4438 RAF Wing Commander's Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Wing Commander's Pennant - A scarce large example in excellent flown condition. The cotton does not have any of the normal moth nips, the stitching is firm and the colours are vibrant. The edge of the pennant carries feint original stamping including the broad arrow property mark and manufacture's details showing it was made by Plant & Co. Ltd. Richmond Factory. It is possibly dated 1943 but this is not entirely clear. Measures 36" (92cm) long.
1750 204 Squadron Presentation Tankard - Click for the bigger picture Sold204 Squadron Presentation Tankard - Engraved to the front to F/O Armitstead 204 Squadron from "Spotter" June '39 - to December '40. 204 Squadron RAF Coastal Command were equipped with Sunderland flying boats in 1939. We have managed to trace F/O John Royds Armitstead service no. 33378 who had been promoted an A/FLt. by 1941 and still serving with 204 Squadron, was awarded a DFC on 25th April, 1941. The tankard is stamped Unity Pewter & English Make. The base has had a slight ding but it makes a fine souvenir with known provenance. Measures 5" (13cm).
2681 RAF Ice Bucket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Ice Bucket - Featuring the King's Crown, RAF and laurel leaves to the chromed top with a wooden barrel and ceramic interior. A shield is applied to the front, although this has never been engraved. The chrome finish is a little worn in places with the underlying brass showing through but still makes a great display item and no doubt has seen many a pink gin for the chaps in the officers' mess. Measures 9" (21cm)
4399 RAF Panchromatic Film Container - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Panchromatic Film Container - Stores ref. no. 14B/2496 and clearly marked AM with King's Crown and Day High Speed. While we have not broken the seal, it appears the 24 feet of film is still contained within but we can no longer guarantee it is still suitable for its original purpose! Clearly dated 21.4.45, this is the first example we have had and would display nicely with other wartime RAF photographic equipment. Measures 7" (18cm)
3431 RFC Message Streamer - Click for the bigger picture SoldRFC Message Streamer - An original and scarce example in first class condition. The streamer features a small pouch to one end in which a lead weight would have been placed together with a message and this would have been dropped from early aircraft to allied troops to pass on messages. Prior to the age of radio signals, this was the only way airmen could communicate with ground based personnel and used extensively during WWI to pass on information such as enemy troop positions, strength or activity. The blue, yellow and red coloured segments are still vibrant with no sign of moth or other damage. An extremely attractive item from the very early days of aviation. Measures 58" (147cm)
3697 Embroidered RAF Crest - Click for the bigger picture SoldEmbroidered RAF Crest - Framed and glazed, the embroidery features the RAF crest surmounted by a King's Crown and below the legend 'Per Adua Ad Astra' meaning 'Through adversity to the Stars.' The embroidery is nicely worked and the colours are still vibrant. The cotton backer shows some stains but these do not effect the crest. Frame measures 12.5"x10.5"(32cm x27cm)
3359 Luftwaffe Parachute Remnant - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Parachute Remnant - Mounted in a glazed frame is a small section of parachute with a typed label which is attached to a section of partly painted alloy stating 'Part of a German parachute from an enemy crewmember of a Heinkel bomber which crashed on April 28th 1941 after a raid on Portsmouth.' Above the label is a photograph of a Luftwaffe pilot at the controls of his aircraft. Sadly we have no other provenance with this item. Frame measures 12" x 9.5" (31cm x24cm).
3356 Luftwaffe Aircraft Seat Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Aircraft Seat Frame - This item is reported to have been recovered from Lubek in 1945 and brought back to the UK as a souvenir. It was then re-upholstered and used for many years by the owner's children in their playroom which was the condition in which we purchased it. When the cover was removed we found a paper label reading German Jet Komet Pilot's Seat Lubek 1945. We also discovered under the paint an original data plate which is somewhat faded but appears to be stamped RGS145 and below 27-H-1970 and 5783-14, although this is not entirely clear. The chair features four rubber pads carrying ink stamps which are difficult to decipher but could possibly idicate a flight school. The frame which appears to be aluminium alloy is finished in original black paint. If any visitors can give us a positive ID, we would be happy to add that to our description, but in the meantime it remains a mystery item but no doubt with a story to tell! Measures 15" wide by 16" deep and 20" high(38cm x 42cm x 53cm).
4268 DH 82 Tiger Moth Elevator - Click for the bigger picture SoldDH 82 Tiger Moth Elevator - While we do not normally get involved with airframes, we just had to have this one! This item was recently discovered in a shed where it has lain undiscovered for many years. Judging by the canvas colour, we assume this to have been from an RAF Tiger Moth. It carries a label detailing serial no. DHLA/R/DH R/E/1657 and below drawing no. U1974 and 199. NO16. On the rear of the elevator is the stencil LH which we presume to mean it is from the left side. A further stencil reads DPD 752 and we speculate this could indicate a manufacture date of July 1952. The canvas is in good taut condition, although as the item comes with no paperwork, is for sale purely as a wall piece, but seeing the excellent condition in the right hands, it could possibly be made airworthy again. Measures 54" (138cm).
2593 Italian/Luftwaffe Flight Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldItalian/Luftwaffe Flight Jacket - This is an interesting one! When purchased we were advised that this jacket had belonged to a Luftwaffe crew member in WWII. In general terms the design is similar to the blue grey summer jacket but intriguingly it features a dark sheepskin lining which has been made up so it buttons into the jacket. This can be completely removed together with the fur collar attachment and could therefore be used in both summer and winter conditions. The jacket has no nomenclature of any description and it has almost certainly be made up as a private purchase item, perhaps to the original owner's specification. The main zip which has a double puller arrangement is made by Zipp and while in working order, the runner feed is a little tender. The sleeve zips are also by Zipp but to a different design and are in working order. In photographing the jacket, we have detected a stitch imprint which appears to indicate where a Luftwaffe breast eagle has been removed. The jacket is a good size. We have just been contacted by Mick Prodger who has helped ID our jacket: 'It's a beautiful jacket - and a rare item. But it isn't private purchase and it isn't German. It's Italian! The quality of Italian air force stuff was staggering - like Armani was in the flying jacket business! The Luftwaffe eagle may have been added post war, although it wouldn't surprise me at all if some Luftwaffe pilots wore the jacket during the war - after all they were allies until 1943 and the Brits/Americans wore each other's gear. Zipp was an international company and you will find Canadian, Australian, US and many European items (as well as German) with Zipp brand zips. However the little teardrop puller is very characteristic of Italian design. Nice too that it still has it's button in fur liner'. Thanks for that Mick and we are all wiser now!
