4223 Kreigsmarine Issue Schwimmveste - Click for the bigger picture SoldKreigsmarine Issue Schwimmveste - These lifejackets were issued to both surface and u-boat crews and photographic evidence exists that they sometimes found their way onto Luftwaffe air sea rescue aircraft. This example is in good issued condition with rubberised canvas finished in beige and fitted with the correct fastening straps. It comes complete with the gas inflation bottle which is stamped 16908, H and dated 6.44 as well as a swastika and M. The jacket itself carries a Waffen Ampt ink stamp and also has manual inflation points. The main inflation tube is in place but the stopper is missing and exhibits signs of perishing. Whilst not mint, this is an excellent display example and is becoming increasingly hard to find in any condition. Not warranted for its original use!
4274 Kreigsmarine Military Stop Watch - Click for the bigger picture SoldKreigsmarine Military Stop Watch - We purchased this fine instrument at auction in South West England and it was described as having been recovered from a U-boat after WWII. The back of the case is nicely marked with Kr, a Waffen Ampt stamp and the letters MA. Identical markings are shown in the excellent Angolia & Schlicht Uniforms and Traditions book volume 3, page 246 with the comment "the meaning of the KR is unknown". Our feeling is this is actually a Kreigsmarine military artillery timer but could well have also been used by the submarine service. The enamel dial has a couple of minor chips but is generally in excellent condition with the main scale recorded 0-10 seconds and the subsidiary dial recording minutes from 0-10. The watch mechanism runs smoothly with both counters operating but it does appear to have a minor fault in that when stopped and zeroed, the main hand returns to the 2 second position as shown in the photograph. If required, the new owner could probably have this sorted and we are therefore offering for sale as a collectable item only. The case carries a double back. No maker's name is shown on the dial. Diameter 2.75" (5.5 cm)
4404 Kreigsmarine Ship's Log in fitted case - Click for the bigger picture SoldKreigsmarine Ship's Log in fitted case - A scarce example and only the second one we have ever seen offered for sale. The register dial is named to the well known nautical instrument manufacturer W. Ludoph who have been operating from Brenerharven for over 150 years. The dial interestingly features a digital display which must have been an advanced feature 70 years ago. Above the scale is written Seemeilen which translates to mean nautical miles. The bezel is embossed with a clear Waffen Ampt stamp and the numbers 2708 and WB12366. The register is made from an alloy and is finished in Kreigsmarine field grey paint. The fitted pine deck box also contains a shoe (mounting device), a traff rail log governer, rotator, hooks and cordage. The metal parts show some rust but the set is in "sleepy" condition, exactly as it must have been when it came out of service. The register appears to be in working order but is for sale as a collector's item.
4396 Kreigsmarine Cigarette Box from Schnellboot S-151 - Click for the bigger picture SoldKreigsmarine Cigarette Box from Schnellboot S-151 - Features an alloy trade badge for a torpedo mechanic to the lid and made from a polished hardwood with an upward hinging central lid. This box has an intriguing story to tell. On the base is written in faded ink "Torpedo boat 151 Kieler Harven" and below "This cigarette box was obtained from a torpedo mechanic of the German Navy ship Torpedo Boat 151. Place: Kiel Harbour. Time: June 1945, boarding party. Price: 5 cigarettes (5 x more than was asked for)" So often the kit we find has lost its provenance down the years, so this little box makes a very pleasant change! We hope the original Kreigsmarine torpedo mechanic enjoyed his 5 cigarettes 63 years ago! Measures 5.5" x 4" (14.5cm x 10 cm)
4377 S.S. Broomhill Wooden Plaque - Click for the bigger picture SoldS.S. Broomhill Wooden Plaque - We believe this to be a ship's lifeboat name board from the ill fated vessel. It is made from mahogany with the lettering in white paint and varnished over. The reverse has evidence of a paper label but if this contained the provenance of the piece, this has long since gone. What we do know is that the SS Broomhill was a steam collier of 1392 tons, built in 1909. She was captured in Lyme Bay in southern England by the German submarine UC61 on 10.05.17. She was sunk by explosive charges, sadly with the loss of 2 lives, brothers James and Robert Jone who were both firemen. She is lying at 50 metres and is largely intact. We can only assume this plaque was removed from a lifeboat by one of the survivors and kept as a souvenir of that eventful day 91 years ago. Dimensions 17.5" (45cm)
3924 Siebe Gorman Goggles - Click for the bigger picture SoldSiebe Gorman Goggles - Fitted with clear lenses mounted in a rubber frame with elastic and leather back strap. The goggles are clearly marked Siebe Gorman & Co. Ltd. Makers London over the nose bridge. The set is in excellent original condition and the rubber shows no sign of perishing. We are not sure of original use but believe they could have been submarine escape goggles.
4373 HMS Invincible Hip Flask - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Invincible Hip Flask - A quality example made from English pewter in Sheffield, the home of fine metalwork in England. To the front is a naval crest with crown, rope surround and triton device. To the rear is a list of battle honours for all the ships to carry the name Invincible from St. Vincent in 1780 to the Falklands in 1982. Height 6" (15cm)
47 Ship's Deck Filler Cap - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Deck Filler Cap - No, this is not a giant's bath plug hole! It is, however, a filler cap and mount, made from solid brass with screw fitted removable cover which is attached with a safety chain to avoid loss whilst at sea. This would probably have been flush fitted to the ship's deck to give access to either diesel or water tanks. The item's diameter is 7.5" (19cm) and is 3.5" (8cm) deep. Great for a classic boat restoration project or possibly shore based applications!
142 Leather and Canvas Suitcase with Mauretania Associations - Click for the bigger picture SoldLeather and Canvas Suitcase with Mauretania Associations - A fine example in used condition. The original owner was L. F. Pepie whose initials are on the lid. He clearly travelled in style as numerous original Cunard Line baggage labels are in evidence, one clearly stating Pepie sailed on the liner Mauretania in the first class state room M.50 from New York to Southampton. Mr. Pepie lived at Mariners, Virginia Water, so a very appropriate address! We are assuming the Mauretania is the second vessel which carried the name which entered service with the Cunard White Star Line in 1939. She was almost immediately requisitioned by the military, armed, painted battle ship grey and served as a troop ship throughout the war. Returning to her owners post war, she served until being scrapped in 1965. Our case is in generally good condition with just minor wear to the canvas and leather but with a variety of original Cunard - White Star labels, would make a great decorator's piece or as a focal point in a WSL display. 30" x 17" (76cm x 43cm). Both locks in working order but the key is absent.
136 Royal Navy Admiralty Pattern Log Clocks - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Navy Admiralty Pattern Log Clocks - Named on the dials Samuel Lee Bapty Ltd. Watford and Admiralty pattern 809. One clock has a conventional dial and hands, while the other has no numerals and a single hand that rotates once every 60 minutes. Both dials have some service wear. They have provision for bulkhead mounting and appear never to have had a bezel or glass fitted. Both have mechanical movements in working order, while the reserve are electrical connections marked 10 mins, 1 min, 2 sec, 0.5 sec and com. There is also an instruction for use with pitometer or chernikeeff log. The latter was invented by Mr. V. Chernikeeff, a Russian national in 1917 and over 3, 000 were subsequently fitted to Royal Navy vessels. Diameter 5" (13cm). For sale as collector's items and would appeal both to ship's log and marine instrument enthusiasts. Price quoted is for the pair.
66 Kings Town Trader Minto Life Ring - Click for the bigger picture SoldKings Town Trader Minto Life Ring - An original example finished in red with reflective strips and rope surround. Painted with the ship's name in Gothic lettering. Sadly we have no history of the vessel the ring came from, although we have discovered a Minto in the Scottish borders area and also in Canada. The item has some bumps and bangs, no doubt acquired during its life at sea but would make an ideal wall decoration in a seaside pub, seafood restaurant or in a nautical bathroom. For sale as a collector's item only. 30" (75cm) diameter.
50 SS Strathnaver Decorative Fouled Anchor - Click for the bigger picture SoldSS Strathnaver Decorative Fouled Anchor - Brass finished with an enamel P&O house flag and the ship's name attached to the shank. Strathnaver was the first of five Straths launched in 1931 at 22, 283 tons, was uniquely finished in all white livery and was very popular with her passengers. In WWII she became a troop ship and assisted with the invasion of Italy. She rejoined P&O in 1948 and was finally broken up in Hong Kong in 1962. The anchor would have been purchased as a souvenir by a passenger as a reminder of a voyage. Mounted on a wooden display shield. Anchor length 3.25" (8cm)
5 Oldham Lantern Type E - Click for the bigger picture SoldOldham Lantern Type E - Admiralty Pattern 16012. Alloy case stamped with maker's name and 220 volts direct current. It appears to have taken a dry cell battery as well as provision for an external power source via brass screw cover. The bulb is sealed within a heavy glass lens and we imagine the lamp would have been used by the Royal Navy as an emergency engine room inspection lamp. Measures 13" (34cm). Sold as a collector's item as we have no means of testing, although looks to be complete.
3350 Admiralty Pattern 574 Non-Break Guidor Hydrometer - Click for the bigger picture SoldAdmiralty Pattern 574 Non-Break Guidor Hydrometer - This instrument is supplied in the original admiralty issue case which is dated 1945/6. The item was manufactured by G H Collie & Co. Birkenhead and carries a patent number 2655. It is unusual in that the hydrometer is protected within a glass tube and surrounded by rubber rings to prevent breakage in service use. This is the first example we have seen and despite being over 60 years old, it has survived in near perfect condition.
3569 H.M.S. Courageous Presentation Plaque - Click for the bigger picture SoldH.M.S. Courageous Presentation Plaque - To mark the award of the Kelvin Hughes Sea Lion Trophy. Courageous was a Royal Navy nuclear powered submarine in service from 1970 and paid off in 1992. The trophy was presented annually by Kelvin Hughes, the marine division of Smiths Industries, for top performance in torpedo marksmanship in the Royal Navy submarine service. Winning crew members received, as well as the trophy, a tie carrying the same motif and a bulkhead plaque was retained on the boat. This award was first introduced in 1975. The award is in the form of a double sea lion motif in relief set on a mahogany base and to the front a brass plaque confirming the award to H.M.S. Courageous. 7" x 5" (18cm x 12cm)
3570 H.M.C.S. Naming Ceremony Presentation Award - Click for the bigger picture SoldH.M.C.S. Naming Ceremony Presentation Award - This item is in the form of a soap stone whale mounted on a hard wood base which is carved with the inscription "Presented to Lady Thomas on the occasion of the naming of H.M.C.S. Victoria 6th October, 2000." H.M.C.S. Victoria (SSK 876) is a long range Hunter Killer submarine and is named after the city of Victoria in British Columbia. She originally served with the Royal Navy as H.M.S. Unseen (S41), between 1989-2000. The soap stone has been used as a carving material for thousands of years and is widely used in Eskimo art. This whale is particularly nicely executed, although he has a minor chip to the tail fluke and fin, so here is your opportunity to purchase a very unique example of fish and chips!! We have no information on Lady Thomas but assume she was probably responsible for the naming of this boat.
2084 Ship's Ventimeter - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Ventimeter - In original cardboard case in excellent condition with full instructions for use as well as how to interpret the wind strength measured. Designed for marine and meteorological use to measure wind speeds from o to 82 mph or force 0 (calm) to Hurricane Force 12! Whilst for sale as a collector's item, it appears to function correctly but cannot guarantee its accuracy, although the last one of these we sold went back to sea and we were told subsequently its readings aligned accurately with today's high tec equipment! Described on the packaging "durable, rust proof and buoyant"! We would estimate it dates from the mid 20th century. 7.5" (20 cm)
35 Marine Fog Horn - Click for the bigger picture SoldMarine Fog Horn - Made from a genuine animal horn with brass fittings and provision for a hanging rope. We are told this came from a large sailing vessel and was held in the cockpit as an auxiliary fog horn in case the main horn should fail. Good working order and very loud. It could not doubt continue to earn its living at sea or would be hard to ignore in the domestic environment. 14" (36cm)
8 Station Pointer by Heath Navigational Ltd. London - Click for the bigger picture SoldStation Pointer by Heath Navigational Ltd. London - A fine instrument in original fitted wooden case marked H.O. 849. It is in excellent issued condition and is complete with extension arms and is marked 5018 as well as H.O., a broad arrow, 849 and dated 1970. We believe this to be a Royal Navy issue item and whilst on offer as a collector's piece, it looks as though it is all in good working order. The station plotter was used by the navigating officer to plot the ship's position from angles made between land marks with a sextant. Circle diameter 6" (15cm)
3522 HMS Hood Trench Art - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Hood Trench Art - Made in the form of a naval gun turret in a silver alloy, mounted on a hardwood display stand. To the rear is a brass plaque which has been stamped HMS Hood sunk 24.5.1941 and below a Royal Navy brass uniform button with King's Crown. HMS Hood was blown up and sunk in the action with Bismarck and Prinz Eugen with the sad loss of virtually the entire ship's company with just three of her crew surviving. 5.5" (14 cm)
