3333 HMS Ark Royal Plaque and Key - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Ark Royal Plaque and Key - A pair of souvenirs from the aircraft carrier comprising firstly, a brass plaque measuring 3.5" x 2.75" (9cm x 7 cm) removed from a DC starter, clearly embossed HMS Ark Royal and dated May 1969. The second item is a key with an unusual attached plaque indicating it fitted the lock in the Inflammable Store (I)5F. The key measures 6.25" (16cm). The Ark weighed 36, 800 tons, was launched in 1950 and was broken up in 1980 after a distinguished career. No doubt these souvenirs were acquired at that time perhaps by a crew member. Original Ark Royal items do not stay with us long, so grab them while you can.
PC47 USS John F. Kennedy Plaque - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSS John F. Kennedy Plaque - Mounted on a pine shield and engraved below "Presented to Commodore J.P.L. Van Dyke and party."

Kennedy was the last conventionally powered aircraft carrier built by the U.S. Navy. She was launched in 1967, carried 78 aircraft and the ship's company numbered 3117. We understand as of March 2007 she is headed for Mayport, Florida to be decomissioned and layed up at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Grab this little bit of USN history while you can! Plaque diameter 8" (20cm), shield width 11" (28cm)

Boswell RN, who was the winner of the ship's sports on that date with no less than four firsts and one second! The cup appears to be EPNS and is in very good condition. Measures 4.5" (11cm)
2232 Shipwright's Scribe - Click for the bigger picture SoldShipwright's Scribe - This instrument is made from hardwood and we believe it would have been used in a shipyard to assist with marking timber during the boat building process. Unusually, it is embossed with a King's Crown and a George VI cypher. In addition, it has been stamped with the names of 37 people on each of the four sides of the instrument. We can only speculate, but perhaps this was done by shipwright colleagues who presented the instrument as a leaving memento to a retiring worker. Central stem 8" (20cm)

Benbow was a 25, 000 Battle Ship built for the Royal Navy in 1913 and she served throughout WW1 including the battle of Jutland where she escaped any damage. She was paid off and broken up in 1931. This item was no doubt crafted by a crew member in 1924 when she was serving in the Mediterranean as a unique gift for his wife, girlfriend or family member. Measures 5.5" (34cm)

PC41 Ship's Gimbal Electric Lamp - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Gimbal Electric Lamp - An original example which was probably used in the cabin of a passenger liner with ornate fluted stem.

In December 1939 the number had halved, with the most efficient being conscripted into the Royal Naval Patrol Service. Milford Princess registered port no. M228 carried pennant FY616, indicating she was assigned to minesweeping duties. She served from September 1939 to September 1945, after which time she was returned to her owners.
