B-17 Flying Fortress Crash Relics - Click for the bigger picture SoldB-17 Flying Fortress Crash Relics - An entry level assortment of crash relics recovered from a B-17 crash site. In this instance whilst we have no details of the actual aircraft loss we do know these were recovered from a Fortress from the 398th bomb Group based at Nuthampstead Hertfordshire in WW11.

Nuthampstead was the nearest Eighth Air Force heavy bomber base to London but was first occupied from September 1943 by the 55th Fighter Group, equipped with P-38s. The 398th Bomb Group, equipped with B-17s took over the station in April 1944 and remained until June 1945 after which it was returned to the RAF in July of 1945.

These assorted relics have all been conserved and are described as 'airframe fragments, exploded oxygen tank part, a bomb splinter, cockpit Perspex and tufnol fragments, section of fuel pipe and an inner wing part'. Some of the relics show traces of original olive drab paint. Due to their small size these relics would exhibit well on a display board but we will leave that decision to the new owner. Modestly priced.

OC412 Assorted Wreck Recovered Relics - Click for the bigger picture SoldOC412 Assorted Wreck Recovered Relics - A further mixed lot from our relic collection. Firstly we have an unidentified aircraft component; this is broad arrow marked and carries the reference number 27N/43. It shows some crash damage but has been conserved to display condition. This is accompanied by and RAF aircrew communication jack plug ; the Bakelite case is damaged but again it has been conserved. In addition we are offering a section of B-17 aircraft skin and a section of fuel line, both recovered from a Fortress belonging to the 398th bomb Group based at Nuthampstead. This mixed lot concludes with the end cap from a Luftwaffe incendiary bomb which is completely inert and is also conserved. An interesting mixed lot which would display well on a board at an entry level price.

RAF Type H Oxygen Mask - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Type H Oxygen Mask - First issued in early 1944 the H mask replaced the earlier G pattern and it remained in RAF service, with minor modifications, for the remainder of the 20th century. This example Stores Reference 6D/2244098 is broad arrow marked and was manufactured in March 1985 and has never been issued. When purchased it came complete in its original packaging with attached documentation that confirmed it was checked by RAF stores in December 1997 and subsequently declared ‘Serviceable’ by 16 Maintenance Unit Stafford. This example is marked ‘Small’ and is fitted with an Amplivox 13100 microphone and mint communication cord and female plug. A full elastic harness is fitted, again in unissued condition, with snaps and clips to use with RAF C, D & E pattern flying helmets as well as the later G. The harness also features the reversible ‘quick connect’ loops for use with the later metal oxygen mask hooks. If the mask is required without the elastic webbing harness please contact us for a separate price. Despite now being 32+ years old this example is effectively as good as they come. Like all items offered on the site this is for sale as a collectable only, although subject to the correct checks we feel it is highly likely it is still in working condition but we can't guarantee this. These masks are no longer in production so grab the opportunity now to purchase one of the last examples whilst our very limited stocks remain.

Aircraft Control Grip AH 2242 - Click for the bigger picture SoldAircraft Control Grip AH 2242 - On offer is an aircraft grip in exceptionally good condition. The stamping to identify it are not very crisp but having taken expert advice we are told this is an AH2242, made by Dunlop and was fitted to the Hawker Sea Fury IV and the Harvard Mk. I and II. The side of the grip is stamped CGF 9477. The brass gun button is fully functional with the fire and lock controls working perfectly and the pneumatic brake pipes are still in place and these are marked ‘In’ and ‘Out’. The grip cover is in perfect condition as is the grip itself and the only issue is a little corrosion to the alloy casting on the top of the grip adjacent to the gun button and a little of the original paint is chipped away. This style of this grip is classic WW11 fighter and could well be mistaken for an early Spitfire or Hurricane grip with the main difference being the lack or a brake lever as the Harvard had foot brakes fitted. And of course the price!

RAF Silver Hair Brush - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Silver Hair Brush - A fine example with engine turned top which features a finely engraved RAF Pilot’s wing, surmounted by a Kings Crown to one corner. The silver is fully hallmarked with anchor, lion and is date coded P. It also carries a somewhat indistinct makers mark reading W.G.S Ltd who we have traced to W.G.Sothers Ltd of Birmingham who were first registered in July 1920 and operated until 1955. The ‘P’ manufacturers coding dates the brush to 1939. The wooden bristle board is also stamped Made in England. Sadly we have no provenance with this item although being solid silver it was clearly a quality item in its day and must have served throughout WW11. Despite its 76 years it is in top condition and whilst on offer as a collectors item it could just as well be used for its intended purpose. Measures 4.25”(11 cm.)

RAF WW11 Silver Hair Brush - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF WW11 Silver Hair Brush - A top quality example with engine turned top which features a finely engraved RAF Pilot’s wing surmounted by a Kings Crown to one corner. The silver is fully hallmarked with anchor, lion and is date coded P. It also carries a somewhat indistinct makers mark reading W.G.S Ltd who we have traced to W.G.Sothers Ltd of Birmingham who were first registered in July 1920 and operated until 1955. The ‘P’ manufacturers coding dates the brush to 1939; the wooden bristle board is also stamped 'Made in England'.

Sadly we have no provenance with this item although being solid silver it was clearly a quality item in its day and must have served throughout the war including the Battle of Britain period. Despite now being 78 years it remains in nice issued condition with one minor bump to the front corner edge and a tiny scratch to the top surface. We believe the bristles are natural and whilst on offer as a collectors item it could just as well be used for its intended purpose today. We were lucky enough to purchase a pair of these but the other is already sold and when this is gone they are gone. It measures 4.25” x 2 3/4" x 1 1/2" (11 cm x 7 cm x 4 cm). An ideal Christmas present for the RAF collector in your life and one that is not available on the High Street or via Amazon. com!

Despite now being 34 years old this example is effectively as good as they come and only point to mention is very minor age staining the inner chamois lining. Like all items offered on the site this is for sale as a collectable only, although subject to the correct checks we feel it is highly likely it is still in working condition but we can't guarantee this. These masks are no longer in production so grab the opportunity now to purchase one of the last examples whilst our very limited stocks remain.

USAAF A-9 Summer Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF A-9 Summer Flying Helmet - mint and probably unissued example. The A-9 was virtually identical to the factory modified A-8 and was essentially an emergency procurement item first issued just 17 days after the USA entered WW11.

This example is fitted with 5 hooks to take the A-10 oxygen mask. No communication equipment is fitted and the helmet remains exactly as it left the factory in 1942 against order no 42-19386 P. The draw strings for adjusting the fit are still in place and the goggle snaps are perfect. The leather chin strap is shearling lined for added comfort and stamped on the inside AN. The interior of the helmet carries a woven label and the size is a Medium;‘powder puff’ pads are fitted for ear comfort but can be easily removed if communication equipment was added.

This is a text book example of this modest but important Army Air Force summer flying helmet from WW11 which would be impossible to upgrade

RAF Trench Art Napkin Ring - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Trench Art Napkin Ring - A fine example that has been fashioned using aircraft canopy plexiglass. It carries a small brass Kings Crown and below an RAF eagle. Whilst we have no specific history with this piece it would almost certainly date to WW11 and is made from material salvaged from a crashed aircraft. This serviette ring comes complete with a period linen napkin and would make a fine display item in a collection or could be used as intended and would make an ideal present, at a modest price, for the RAF or trench art collector in your life!

Avro Lancaster Crash Relics - Click for the bigger picture SoldAvro Lancaster Crash Relics - Another small but interesting collection of crash relics from an un named Lancaster dig crash site. The centrepiece is clearly P4A master compass. Whilst clearly in relic condition it has been nicely conserved and remains a great display item. The glass and compass card are long gone but the bezel, engraved with the points of the compass, still rotates and the instrument is marked with the 'Type 4A and numbered 1866T. Much of the original slate grey paint is intact and the sprung suspension is still functioning. This is accompanied by a polished brass Lancaster fuel gauge bezel and the set is completed with an inert cartridge case.

6225
Hawker Hurricane Crash Relics - Click for the bigger picture SoldHawker Hurricane Crash Relics - A rather interesting selection of clearly identifiable crash recovered Hurricane aircraft parts although sadly the details of the wreck from which they were salvaged has not been recorded. Perhaps most impressive is the Rolls Royce Merlin engine compressor type A.V.A.M. which was used on both the Spitfire and Hurricanes to facilitate the use of the flaps and also for cocking the machine guns mounted in each wing. It is profusely stamped with various numbers as well as an A.I.D mark. Despite being in semi relic condition it has been nicely conserved and is very stable. The large rectangular item is a section recovered from the aircrafts TR9D radio transmitter/ receiver. We can only speculate the last messages that were transmitted through it but we hope the pilot was able to bail out before the aircraft crashed. This piece measures 12" x 8"x 4.5" (30cm x 20 cm 12 cm) This, like all the pieces in this collection, has been professionally conserved. We also offer a section of alloy tubing, which would have formed part of the Hurricane's airframe and the group is completed by what we believe a part of a Rolls Royce Merlin engine block stud. In summary an identifiable grouping relating to one of the iconic fighters of the Battle and Britain and WW 11, which would benefit from being display mounted.

Assorted WW11 Aircraft Crash Relics - Click for the bigger picture SoldAssorted WW11 Aircraft Crash Relics - On offer is a mixed lot which forms a part of the small relic collection that we have just taken in. Firstly top left in our picture are a pair of piston rings from a Pratt & Whitney R2800 radial engine recover from a P-47 Thunderbolt; these are 6" in diameter (15cm). Below them is a cast air frame section recovered from a JU 88 crash site. Shown on the bottom left are several pieces of wreckage, including a section of the rudder from a Halifax B Mk7 that crashed in 1944; these show some of the original black paint. Finally to the right of the picture is a section of Bristol Beaufighter skin together with a reflector gun sight locking ring, which were both recovered from the same dig. The skin section again carries much of its original green paint. All these items have been nicely conserved and are ready for display. Sadly the actual details of the individual crash sites has not been recorded but an interesting lot nonetheless.

De Havilland: DH 98 Mosquito Engine Mount - Click for the bigger picture SoldDe Havilland: DH 98 Mosquito Engine Mount - Another significant crash relic described by the previous owner as 'forward section of wreck recovered engine mounting from a late mark DH Mosquito'. Like the other relics from this collection it has been restored and to a good display condition as shown in our picture.

In checking on line the mount is clearly identifiable and it still has alloy and rubber tubing and other components attached, some of which are profusely stamped. The engine mount shows some corrosion but having been conserved and restored by the previous owner it seems stable and would make an impressive display item alongside other Mosquito related artefacts. Sadly we again have no information on the airframe it originated from. It is a sizeable piece at 40" long and 16" at the wide end (102 cm x 41 cm) and it weighs 8.1 kilos without packing so please check delivery costs with us before ordering!

If Mosquito's are your thing we have another impressive lump from the same collection which we will be listing shortly!

6214
DH Mosquito Flight Control Surface - Click for the bigger picture SoldDH Mosquito Flight Control Surface - Another impressive item from our crash relic collection. This was described by the previous owner as ' a DH98 elevator relic'. We have not been able to identify if this is an aileron, rudder or elevator part but if any visitors to the site can give us a positive identification we will add it to our description. It is certainly one of the three and still has significant areas of olive drab and brown camouflage paint remaining. The reverse side, not shown in our listing picture, is missing a good proportion of the aluminium skin and shows the internal framing and the original control bar, which has been severed in the crash. The item measures about 19"x 16" (49cm x 41cm) so am impressive piece but also a good display size. It has been conserved, is stable and is ready for display in your collection! Like all items listed more detailed pictures are available on request.

Adler M34 Factory Fire Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldAdler M34 Factory Fire Helmet - An excellent example that would have been issued to firemen working in the Adler factory prior to and during WW11 in case of fire or air raids. Adler were pre-war and wartime military vehicle manufacturers of utility types or ‘Kubels’, light cars and personnel carriers. In addition they also made civilian cars too like the initial VW Beetle. The helmet is in great shape and is clearly dated 3.05.34 and made by Vorschriftsmassig Lt. Gertz. The M 34 code represents the year this pattern of helmet was introduced so impossible to find an earlier example. Nice clear painted factory logo to front and two ventilation holes either side. This one had provision for the comb but the holes have been plugged. On either side of the helmet you can make out evidence where the national shield decals were once applied. The original paint is excellent with just minor service marks and in view off the decal evidence safe to say it has not been repainted. The leather chin strap is in excellent condition and the leather liner is clearly marked Linnenbrugger & Ellermann Belfield. Below is another ink stamp with writing but we are unable to decipher. The size is marked 56. The original owners name is also written on the liner but again not possible to decipher. All in all a nice original example in good sleepy condition!

RAF Type H Oxygen Mask - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Type H Oxygen Mask - First issued in early 1944 the H mask replaced the earlier G pattern and it remained in RAF service, with minor modifications, for the remainder of the 20th century. This example Stores Reference 6D/2244098 is broad arrow marked and was manufactured in March 1985 and has never been issued. When purchased it came complete in its original packaging with attached documentation that confirmed it was checked by RAF stores in November 1985 and subsequently declared ‘Serviceable’ by 16 Maintenance Unit Stafford when last checked on 6th December 1997! This example is marked ‘Small’ and is fitted with an Amplivox 13100 microphone and mint communication cord and female plug. A full elastic harness is fitted, again in unissued condition, with snaps and clips to use with RAF C, D & E pattern flying helmets as well as the later G. The harness also features the reversible ‘quick connect’ loops for use with the later metal oxygen mask hooks. If the mask is required without the elastic webbing harness please contact us for a separate price. Despite now being 32 years old this example is effectively as good as they come, both inside and out! Like all items offered on the site this is for sale as a collectable only, although subject to the correct checks we feel it is highly likely it is still in working condition but we can’t guarantee this. These masks are no longer in production so grab the opportunity now to purchase one of the last examples whilst our very limited stocks remain.

AN 5732-1 Magnetic Compass - Click for the bigger picture SoldAN 5732-1 Magnetic Compass - An original example still fitted to it's anti vibration mounting bar. Basic research indicates possible PBY Catalina origins for standby use. The standby compass may have been mounted above, not on top of, the main instrument panels just ahead of the overhead throttles. The screws to mount it would come up from the bottom of the ears on the mounting bracket securing it to the overhead structure. The PBY's, depending on the model, had either a remote compass or a directional gyro on the main instrument panels but you would would still have a standby magnetic compass in view. Another theory is it could be a Stearman, as this compass will fit exactly in the factory cut out for a compass in the Navy Stearman instrument panel. If any visitors to the site can add any information on this please let us know and we can update our description.

Condition is as shown. The interior lamp hatch cover is missing but it otherwise it looks complete. The compass oil remains clear and the compass swings freely. Below the compass is a compass magnetic deviation card. A data plaque above the compass confirms it was manufactured by the Bendix Aviation Corporation of New Jersey against serial nos Z-709. How this instrument ended up here in the UK is unknown but we feel sure it has a story to tell! Mounting bar measures 16” (41 cm) and it stands 5 1/4” high (13 cm)
