Reference Stock Item   Description
4784 Irvin Air Chute Battle of Britain period Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldIrvin Air Chute Battle of Britain period Flying Jacket - A fine example and despite having no label the classic square collar, narrow belt loops and tan cow hide indicate this to be of IAC manufacture probably from a 1939 or 40 contract. This jacket was originally wired but the plugs and electrical connections have been carefully removed. The leather is very soft and just one small repair patch to the left sleeve. All zips are original Dot and in good working order. Inside the characteristic short pile fur is in near mint condition, collar strap and rings in place and the waist belt is perfect. This jacket has an interesting story to tell. We are advised it belonged to a pilot who crashed in Ankaran near the hospital and a few miles from the liner Rex, sunk by the RAF in Slovenia in 1944. The pilot was rescued by the partisans minutes before the Germans arrived. Sadly we don't have further details of the incident. His jacket, however, certainly survived and we very much hope he did as well. We estimate this jacket to be a size 5 and would fit chest sizes up to 42" (107cm)
4679 RAF B Type Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF B Type Flying Helmet - A very fine issued example of the classic Battle of Britain helmet which was the standard pattern for all air crew from 1935 to 1941. This one is named to Warrant Officer L. E. Hart who we were advised by a rear gunner on Sunderland Flying Boats serving with 230 squadron. While the helmet never appears to have had a label fitted, it is a large size, certainly a 3 if not a 4. The leather is soft with none of the normal flaking, both receivers zips work fine and the receiver carriers are fitted as well as foam ear cushions but lacking receivers. The Bennett buckles retain their leather covers. One chrome end to the chin strap is missing and poppers are fitted for the D type oxygen mask. The lining is in good condition but showing normal service wear. B types are getting incredibly scarce and few match the condition of this example.
4480 USAAF Roughwear B-3 Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF Roughwear B-3 Flying Jacket - A classic original WWII flight jacket by perhaps the most famous contractor. This example features the classic veg tanned redskin contrast leather and the label confirms the contract no. 42-511D, dating it to 1942. The size is marked as a 40 regular. The zip is a correct specification Talon replacement. Despite the stunning look of this jacket, it has had extensive repairs and while it will make a perfect example in a collection, it is certainly not strong enough to wear. B-3's are getting increasingly hard to find in any condition.
3528 Air Ministry Amperes Test Guage - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Amperes Test Guage - Comes complete with a broad arrow marked issue case. The instrument is made by Compton Parkinson Ltd. with patent nos. indicating 1924 and 1927. The dial is graduated from 05-25 and is AM and King's Crown marked. We believe the instrument was used to measure the flow of current through a cable. It appears in excellent condition but on offer as a collector's item only! Measures 8.5" (22cm)
4656 Air Ministry Marked Candle Sticks - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Marked Candle Sticks - A matched pair finished in chrome on brass with turned stems in an art deco style. No maker's marks but each is embossed with an AM and crown, so we have assumed these were probably a Mess item, rather than trenchart. Measures 9.5" tall (24cm)
4790 Royal Auxiliary Air Force 609 Squadron Pewter Tankard - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Auxiliary Air Force 609 Squadron Pewter Tankard - 609 (West Riding) was formed in 1936 originally as a Bomber Squadron but in 1938 transferred to fighters and was issued with Mk. I Spitfires in 1939. 609 participated at Dunkirk and in the Battle of Britain from Middle Wallop. They destroyed 46 enemy aircraft in August 1940 and by October the squadron became the first to achieve 100 kills. In 1941 they were transferred to Biggin Hill and in 1942 to Duxford, now flying Typhoons and supported the D Day Landings. The tankard features the squadron crest, Kings Crown and moto "Tally Ho"! It also features a GR VI stamp, 43 and capacity mark. Some minor dings but a fabulous souvenir from a Battle of Britain fighter squadron. Measures 5" (12.5cm)
5057 Swift Training Rifle 9B/1508 series B - Click for the bigger picture SoldSwift Training Rifle 9B/1508 series B - This is not actually a firearm but was designed in WWII as an instructional tool to teach handling, holding, aiming and firing, without the need of amunition or range. The B series model was broadly representative of the P14 or Lee Enfield Mk. III service rifles. From 1942 these rifles were issued to the RAF and Home Guard and post war were used for rifle training by the ATC. This example is AID marked so was clearly used by the RAF. While we cannot guarantee the accuracy(!), it does appear to be in working order and comes complete with photocopy documentation issued by the manufacturer Frederick J. Minns of Oxford. A most unusual item for the specialist RAF or firearms collector. Measures 47" (119cm)
5060 Anti Aircraft Shell Head Fuse - Click for the bigger picture SoldAnti Aircraft Shell Head Fuse - We believe this item of trenchart to be from a 3.7" or 3.9" WWII AA shell which has been display mounted on a hardwood base. The fuse is clearly marked with no. 199 1V FL 10/38 and RL 12/38 537. It has further engraving of an omega sign, safe and a small broad arrow, together with a 0 to 30 scale. The various components unscrew and it makes a decorative display item. Due to international regulations, this item is restricted for sale to UK based collectors only. Measures 4.25" high excluding base (10.5cm)
5058 Fairey 111D Propeller Hub Trenchart - Click for the bigger picture SoldFairey 111D Propeller Hub Trenchart - Made in the form of a planter with a plaque to the front confirming the provenance and dated 1929. The Fairey 111D was the standard training aircraft of the RAF and FAA from 1920 to 1927 and was used in flying off trials from HMS Argos, the first flush deck aircraft carrier. In 1924 two WWI pilots achieved a distance record in a 111D circumnavigating Australia, 13, 570 kilometres in a 44 day marathon! The propeller hub is hollowed out and is reminiscent of a Grecian urn and would make a unique planter for an Aspidistra! Height 15" (38cm).
4805 Heinkel HE111 Crash Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldHeinkel HE111 Crash Relic - Mounted on a display board featuring a cut out picture of a similar aircraft. We don't have any specific information on the aircraft or crash date other than it came down at Harwich in 1940. The relic appears to be a cable control wheel in original paint and showing signs of crash damage. This item looks as though it may have been taken as a souvenir at the time rather than being wreck dug. Wheel diameter 6" (15cm).
4812 Battle of Britain Hurricane R-4219 Crash Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldBattle of Britain Hurricane R-4219 Crash Relic - On mounted display board with cut out picture of a similar aircraft. Pilot Officer Robert Dafforn was flying with 501 squadron on 18th September, 1940 and was in action over Biggin Hill when he was shot down by an ME110 and bailed out. His aircraft crashed at Cronks Farm, East Seal. The mounted relic is a data plate from the oil tank stating piece no. 6864 and serial no. JRB/L/48 together with an inspection stamp. Board measures 10" x 7.5" (25cm x 19cm)
4814 Spitfire X 4237 Crash Relics - Click for the bigger picture SoldSpitfire X 4237 Crash Relics - On mounted display board with a cut out picture of a similar aircraft. Spitfire X 4237 was shot down by a ME 109 on 27.09.40. The pilot Sgt. D. Cox bailed out and his aircraft crashed at Wye Court Farm. The site was officially excavated in 1974. The mounted relics include a.303 bullet head, some shards of glass probably from the armoured screen and a damaged bearing. Board measures 9" x 6" (23cm x 15cm).
4810 Messerschmitt ME110 D Fuel Oil Pipe Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldMesserschmitt ME110 D Fuel Oil Pipe Relic - Mounted on a display board featuring a cut out picture of a similar aircraft. This relic was recovered from ME110 D-1 code U8+DK which was shot down by Sgt. Rolls of 72 squadron on 2.09.40 and it crashed near Harvel in Kent. The fuel pipe is marked NW13 Argus. Board measurement 12.5" x 8" (32cm x 20cm).
4804 Luftwaffe Leuchtpistole Model M1928 in Relic Condition - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Leuchtpistole Model M1928 in Relic Condition - Despite being recovered from a crash site and distorted by fire and impact damage, it is still recognisable as a flare pistol issued to Luftwaffe aircrew in WWII. While we don't have any information on the actual crash details, we were told it was recovered in the Hastings area of East Sussex and as it is clearly dated 1939, could well relate to a Battle of Britain incident. It carries various acceptance and waffenampt stamps. This item is for sale in as recovered condition and the breach is jammed, the lock, trigger and hammer are all seized with distortion due to the crash and fire. Despite this it makes a fine souvenir and would undoubtedly have a story to tell if it could talk.
4802 Rolls Royce Merlin Engine Piston and Con Rod - Click for the bigger picture SoldRolls Royce Merlin Engine Piston and Con Rod - Perhaps the ultimate souvenir from the famous Merlin that powered the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster in WWII. We suspect, looking at the condition, this one has never been used, although we have been advised it was probably for a Merlin XX engine. It is complete with fitted piston rings and believe this example would be hard to better. Diameter of piston 5.5" (13.5cm).
4344 RAF Tempest Fighter Pilot's Rescue Dinghy Relic Parts - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Tempest Fighter Pilot's Rescue Dinghy Relic Parts - Displayed within a glazed frame, the components are probably from a K-type single seater dinghy issued to fighter pilots. These relics were recovered from the authorised excavation of the crash site of Hawker Tempest JN765 that fell at Winchelsea in Sussex on 1st July, 1945. While being in relic condition, a rubber grab handle is clearly identifiable. Frame measures 18" x 12.5" (46cm x 31cm).
4343 Hawker Tempest JN765 Crash Relics - Click for the bigger picture SoldHawker Tempest JN765 Crash Relics - Mounted on a framed display board and includes various components officially recovered under MOD license by the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum in 1995. The aircraft of No. 3 squadron was being flown by Flying Officer George Kosh on 1st July, 1944 and was scrambled to inctercept a VI Flying Bomb. The aircraft was seen to enter low cloud but emerged in a steep dive and crashed near Winchelsea in Sussex. The pilot failed to bail out and is buried in Hawkinge. Varous air frame componenets are displayed including riveted fuselage skin and a section of the rubber dinghy. Frame measures 26" x 20" (66cm x 51cm)
4793 English Electric Canberra PR7 Tail Fin Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldEnglish Electric Canberra PR7 Tail Fin Relic - An impressive display item painted in the colours of 100 squadron which operated from RAF Whyton in the targeting role towing air drogues or acting as fast low flying intruders. We don't have any specific information on the actual aircraft this is from but the Canberra was retired from service during 1991. This relic is single sided, although much of the inner structure remains in situ. Measures: 42" high (107cm).
4797 Junkers JU-87 Stuka Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldJunkers JU-87 Stuka Relic - We believe this component to be the inner tip of the aircraft's flap (Innere Verstellklappe), position closest to the fuselage. The relic has been painted with the aircraft details confirming it is from Junkers JU-87 R-4 with code LI+FW (6234) III/I STG 5 and dated 24.4.42. We have identified with aircraft crashing due to engine failure over Murmansk. Lt. Rudolf Newmann survived while the other crew member Uffz Kurt Graef was reported M.I.A. This relic is in as recovered condition with traces of the original paint. It is scarce to find an identifiable crash relic with provenance from the famous Stuka. Measures: 17" (43cm).
4792 Messerschmitt ME-110 Engine Cowling Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldMesserschmitt ME-110 Engine Cowling Relic - The superb example featuring the original squadron crest of JG5 Group who fought against the Russians over Murmansk, flying out of bases in Norway and Finland. The 7th Staffel of JG5 was a destroyer group equipped with ME110 C's. The crest features a rapant lion which was the coat of arms of the Graf Von Sponeck family. We have identified this part as a lower engine chin cowl mounted in front of the exhaust and behind the propeller spinner. This relic features a ventilation outlet and inside evidence of where a data plate was once fitted. We have no specific information on the actual aircraft this was recovered from, suffice to say it was found in Murmansk. An incredibly rare opportunity to own an identifiable aircraft relic with guaranteed original artwork. Measures: c.27" (69cm) on base.
