4906 Luftwaffe Focke-Wulf FW-190 Starboard Tail Fin Panel - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Focke-Wulf FW-190 Starboard Tail Fin Panel - Understood to have been recovered in WW11 from a FW-190 that was shot down near Caen, France on 21 July, 1944. We have just imported this panel direct from Normandy and while we don't have specific information on the actual aircraft it was from, we have researched it fully and the rivet pattern and the orientation match exactly with the 190. In addition, the remaining evidence of the internal framing aligns to where the structure was fitted on the FW-190. The swastika has the correct dimensions and the panel has evidence of red paint where the rudder stop was fitted. The paintwork is clearly original and shows signs of heat and crash damage where it has been torn from the aircraft on impact rather than being cut from the airframe. These panels were perhaps the ultimate souvenir for victorious allied pilots on the squadron back in WWII and they remain so for the serious collector and museum today. This is an area, however, where the fakers practise their art, so care needs to be taken in investing in such an item and we are happy to give an unconditional guarantee on the originality of this example. The panel is single sided with a small section of the original framing remaining to the inside. While the alloy is slightly distorted, it makes a fine display being an impressive size at approximately 32" x30" (82cm x76cm).
1064 Samovar Presented to F/Lt V.R. Paterson - Click for the bigger picture SoldSamovar Presented to F/Lt V.R. Paterson - Engraved from the Officers and NCO's of 78 Squadron on the occasion of his marriage 18/10/40. In addition the lid is engraved with a fine facsimile of an RAF Pilot's King's Crown Brevet. 78 squadron joined the front line in July 1940 flying Whitley Bombers as part of 4 Group based at Dishforth. Victor Roberton Paterson won a DFC 11.02.41 and was subsequently posted to join 101 squadron of 3 Group. On 21st September, 1942, Paterson was skipper of Wellington III coded X3815 flying out of RAF Stradishall on a "Gardening" sortie over Kiel Bay and off the coast of Denmark. He was attacked over Jylland by a German night fighter. Two of his crew bailed out from the burning aircraft and were subsequently captured but Patterson and the other two crew members fell with the aircraft and lost their lives in the subsequent crash on Spandet Moor. Squadron Leader Paterson DFC was just 26 years old and his wife Jane Roberton Paterson was widowed after exactly 23 months of marriage. Paterson and his two crew mates are buried in the Aabenraa Military Cemetary in Denmark close to where they fell. This samovar is an emotive tribute to 3 of the 55, 500 brave aircrew of Bomber Command who made the ultimate sacrifice. On offer as a decorative item. Measures 12.5" (32cm)

Fighter Pilot - Click for the bigger picture SoldFighter Pilot

This is a first edition and a personal record of the Battle of France. It was written anonymously when published in 1941 as the author was very much in the front line, serving with no. 1 Squadron. The author was subsequently killed in action and his name was released as Paul Richey. This gripping book is a personal account of the Battle of France from September 1939 to June 1940 when the author was flying Hawker Hurricanes. The book is perfusely illustrated with original black and white photographs of his fellow pilots Killy, Prosser, Boy, Moses, the Doc and others! It also has pictures of the aircraft, airfields and combat. The book has its original dust jacket with just minor damage and is in generally very good condition. A great read as well as an excellent reference book for the aviation collector.

The Last Enemy - Click for the bigger picture SoldThe Last Enemy

This is a first edition, published in 1942 shortly before Richard Hilary's untimely death in a flying accident. A classic fighter pilot's story and covers his training and the Battle of Britain when he suffered severe burns to his face and hands and underwent plastic surgery under the pioneering surgeon Archibold McIndoe, thus becoming one of his very early "guinea pigs". The book is with the original dust cover which shows some wear but is protected by a protective jacket. Generally in good overall condition.

The mask is in near mint condition and marked medium, made by The Ohio Chemical Company and is embossed property Air Force, US Army and dated 5/44.

4740 Frazer Nash F.N.50 Mid Upper Turret Cupola - Click for the bigger picture SoldFrazer Nash F.N.50 Mid Upper Turret Cupola - As fitted to early examples of Avro Lancaster heavy bombers and in service would have been fitted with twin Browning.303 machine guns. It was described by those who used it as "roomy and comfortable but difficult to exit in a hurry!" Sadly, we don't have any provenance with this example but no doubt it has a story to tell. The aluminium frame is in excellent condition and is fitted with the original plexiglas showing some damage but generally in good display condition. Data plates are fitted inside confirming stores reference no. 50E 12601, serial no. 314 and drawing nos. 449, 383 and 203.
367 RAF Aerial Kite in Original Issue Tin - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Aerial Kite in Original Issue Tin - We have had several of these over the years but this example is definitely the best! The tin carries a very clear label with illustration assembly and launching instructions. Inside everything is as you would expect and exactly as it was when it left the factory about 70 years ago. It comes complete with 33 yards of flying line in the original carton, which is nearly always missing. The kite itself looks as though it has never been removed from the tin or assembled and believe the set to be "mint and boxed". If you want the best, look no further! Measures 21.5" (55cm)
3740 Small Aircraft Propeller - Click for the bigger picture SoldSmall Aircraft Propeller - Manufactured in laminated timber with red painted tips and varnish finish. It has no identification marks on the hub so we have no idea what aircraft it was designed for but judging by its size, possibly a microlight or even a target drone. An attractive display example of a genuine propeller at an entry level price. Measures 44" (112cm)
762 Hawker Siddley Aviation Ltd. - Click for the bigger picture SoldHawker Siddley Aviation Ltd. - A perspex signboard with recessed lettering. Hawker Siddley Aviation was formed in 1948 while Hawker Siddley Aircraft Company originated in 1935 and were responsible for aircraft such as the Sea Vixen, Hunter and the classic Trident airliner. Hawker Siddley were merged with British Aerospace in 1977. We have no provenance with this item but assume it was used in one of its factories or possibly on an HS exhibition trade stand. Measures 47" (119cm)
4689 Supermarine Spitfire Model Aircraft - Click for the bigger picture SoldSupermarine Spitfire Model Aircraft - Crafted from solid wood with metal undercarriage and finished in a camouflage paint scheme and RAF roundels. Judging by the blistering to the paint finish and some blackening in the underwing area, this model may have been exposed to a fire or possibly battle damage! We have no idea if this is a scratch built model or an early kit. It could well be period WWII or just post war and holes drilled in the tail and wings indicate it has spent part of its life suspended from a ceiling, possibly in a young pilot's bedroom? The Spitfire exudes period charm and is in remarkable original condition. Wing span 19" (48cm)
3850 USAAF Type A-11 Pilot's Watch by Waltham - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF Type A-11 Pilot's Watch by Waltham - An extremely attractive example of this classic aviator's watch. The perfusely engraved back plate carries the code AF.44-47201, which dates the watch to a 1944 contract. It features a 16 jewel movement with a central sweep second hand and a hacking device which is in good order. The canvas military style strap shows some wear and could be an original item or possibly a later replacement. These watches were also issued to RAF air crew from 1942. The case and crystal are in remarkedly good condition and appears to be in good working order.
4481 Royal Flying Corps Mk. V Aviation Panel Watch circa 1916 - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Flying Corps Mk. V Aviation Panel Watch circa 1916 - The black painted dial is marked 30 hour non luminous Mk. V and above the subsidiary dial B.E.11072. These watches were fitted with a 15 jewel movement and made by a variety of manufacturers and the code B.E. indicates this example was made by the Swiss firm Doxa. The back of the case is engraved with the RFC property mark of A and below a broad arrow. Slight damage to the black finished dial and minor marks to the crystal glass. The case is in good issued condition. The watch runs intermittently so may benefit from a clean and service, so on offer as a collector's item from the early days off aviation.

PC102 MGB Sports Car with RAF connection! - Click for the bigger picture SoldMGB Sports Car with RAF connection! - On offer is the highly desirable 'chrome bumper' version which was first registered 26 March 1974 and has been with the current owner since July 1986. In the last ten years the car has been professionally restored including many new body panels and new interior including leather trim. Due to work commitments the owner has had little opportunity to enjoy her and she has been stored in a dry lock-up garage since 1989, during which time she has covered approximately 200 miles! She has, however, been maintained in roadworthy condition throughout and had her new Ministry of Transport (MOT) issued on 19 June 2009. She is fitted with overdrive, wire wheels and a soft top although a hard top could be available by separate negotiation if required. The car is owned by our neighbour's son and any negotiations would be direct with the owners. She is garaged here in central Somerset (South West England). She is one of the last of the true British sports cars with the additional benefit of having the registration RAF 669M which will appeal to all you RAF collectors!
4598 Fleet Air Arm 'C' Type Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFleet Air Arm 'C' Type Helmet - A scarce example in size 4 (the largest offered). The leather is in excellent original condition, as is the interior which just shows normal service wear. All snaps and buckles in place and working. The receiver cup foams are original to the helmet and while somewhat brittle, they help to display the helmet in as used service condition. This helmet is fitted with gosport tubes and looks as though it has never had a wiring loom fitted, so could well have been used in a training role.
4599 Luftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe LKpW101 Flying Helmet - A clean example of the standard winter flying helmet used by the German Air Force in WWII. The leather is in excellent condition as is the lambswool fur lining but the helmet is lacking receivers and wiring loom.

4600 Section of Propeller Tip - Click for the bigger picture SoldSection of Propeller Tip - Finished in RAF colours and while we do not know what aircraft it came from, judging by its size it is likely to be a single engine trainer or fighter. Made from laminated timber with original covering and polished brass leading edge. Measures 12" (31cm)
4581 DH60 Propeller Blade and Hub - Click for the bigger picture SoldDH60 Propeller Blade and Hub - The DH60 is the code for the De Havilland. The DH60 is otherwise known as the Gipsy Moth. The hub is stamped 80 hp and Cirrus and dated March 1926. The Cirrus engine was soon replaced after early production indicating this propeller is from an early example of the aircraft. One blade has been removed near the hub while the other, which is covered in the original green painted canvas, carries a signature which looks to be J. Bell, who we speculate could have been the pilot reponsible for the loss of the missing blade. A very decorative example from the early days of aviation, measures 45" (114cm)
4602 RAF Mk. VIII Flying Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk. VIII Flying Goggles - Fitted with dark tinted lenses, broad arrow marked on the nose cover and stores ref. 22C/930 7699.
