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)
PC65 Ship's Engine Room Inspection Lamp - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Engine Room Inspection Lamp - Finished in polished bronze with a carrying handle to the top. This example is embossed with the code BM28651 and would have been powered by a self contained dry cell battery which was secured within the base of the lantern and protected by a rubber gasket. It would have been illuminated by means of a toggle switch and was designed to be used below decks on Royal Navy and other vessels to carry out inspections in dark, inaccessible conditions or when the main power supply has failed. Whilst on offer as a display item, we believe it would still function as intended, with a suitable battery or could be converted to mains wiring by a qualified electrician. It is heavy and would also make an excellent marine door stop! 6" x 10" (15cm x 25cm)
3977 Marine Pelorus no. 7 - Click for the bigger picture SoldMarine Pelorus no. 7 - Manufactured by the well known maker Heath & Co. London. This fine example is set in gimbals and mounted in a hardwood deck box. This features brass fastening hooks and the removable lid is further secured by a leather strap; the side of the box is stencilled Heath's Pelorus No. 7. The inside of the lid carries the maker's original instructions for use. The instrument is in totally original condition with folding sighting vanes and filters. These instruments were used to take the magnetic bearings of objects obscured from the standard compass. This example is not dated, but likely to be from the early part of the 20th century. Case measurements 7.5" x 7.5" x 6" (19cm x 19cm x 16cm)
PC63 WWII Ship's Bulkhead Lantern - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Ship's Bulkhead Lantern - A fine original example that was fitted to HMS Forth, a submarine supply depot ship which was launched in 1938 and served throughout WWII, finally being broken up in 1985. In service the lamp was painted white, but it has now been stripped back to its original bronze. It is complete with an opaque lamp cover and to the reverse it has 3 mounting points for wall or bulkhead mounting. The lamp holder has been replaced, but would require wiring up by a qualified electrician prior to use. Lamp diameter 8" (20cm) and depth from the mounting brackets is 5" (13cm)
3816 Meteorological Office Aneroid Barometer Mk. IIB - Click for the bigger picture SoldMeteorological Office Aneroid Barometer Mk. IIB - A fine original instrument made by A. T. Reynolds Ltd. London and dated 1944. Originally it would have been used on a weather ship or shore station to record daily changes in barometric pressure.

It features an indicating and set hand to show changes in air pressure. The instrument is housed in a brass case with a wall hanging ring attached. A quality instrument in fine, original condition. The diameter measured across the dial is 5.25" (13cm)

Manufactured by Easco and was designed to be thrown into the sea to mark the position of a man overboard casualty.

3775 Barge Water Carrier by Bulpitt - Click for the bigger picture SoldBarge Water Carrier by Bulpitt - Whilst more famous for manufacturing quality marine lamps, Bulpitt & Sons Birmingham also made other nautical items and this copper jug is a fine example. Clearly maker marked and dated 1912, it has a very solid built quality and superb patina. It features insulated handles and on one is scratched 33 and XYI, which we assume to be the original owner's identifying marks. Minor service wear, but overall in excellent condition and perfect for display in an inglenook fireplace, as a unique flower vase or for its original use as a water carrier, despite its 95 years of service! It is large at 38cm (15")to top of handle and 28cm (11") at the base.

In addition, there are two identical rotators fitted with attachment lines and the set is completed with a taf rail mount for the register and 2 spare lenses. The inside of the box lid has full instructions for use, including a warning not to carry out oiling at sea! In the days of satellite navigation, these instruments have more or less become obsolete and it is rare to find such a complete example in such pristine condition. Box measurement 19" x 11" (49cm x 28cm)
2182 Royal Naval Cap, HMS Suffolk Book & Medal Grouping - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Naval Cap, HMS Suffolk Book & Medal Grouping - This lot came in together and while we have no history on the original owner, we assume he served on HMS Suffolk and continued in the Royal Navy post war. The book has embossed on the cover HMS Suffolk and "Nous Maintiendrons" and covers her third commission on the China station. Lavishly illustrated with original photographs, cartoons and diagrams, it covers the period from 1933 to 1935 and is a great reference as it also lists the entire ship's company by name during that period. The white top visor cap carries a bullion naval badge, surmounted by a Queen's Crown and is stamped inside size 6 7/8, Army & Navy Hat & Cap Company, Ltd. The grouping is completed by a set of miniature medals mounted as worn, made up of the Defence medal, the 1939-45 medal and the Army Emergency Reserve medal. In addition, there is a pin back medal ribbon bar indicating the award of the Naval General Service medal, the 1939-45 Star, the Atlantic Star, the Defence medal and the Naval General Service Award from 1915-62.
2086 Speed, Time & Distance Slide Rule - Click for the bigger picture SoldSpeed, Time & Distance Slide Rule - A Naval slide rule pattern 1448 and marked with a broad arrow. Used by navigating officers to find the time required to run a given distance or to find the speed made good from the time taken to run a known distance. An essential tool in the days before satellite navigation, complete with original operating instructions and card case. It appears to be in good working condition and a great souvenir of times gone by. It measures 12.5" (32cm)
3433 Chadburns' Whistle Control System - Click for the bigger picture SoldChadburns' Whistle Control System - A fine solid brass example mounted on a turned pine base. Marked Willett-Bruce Trademark and below Whistle Control System. James Willett-Bruce was a maker of electric whistle control apparatus as used on White Star liners Titanic and Olympic and he was also the Superintendent Engineer of the White Star Line and had the final say on equipment used on the WSL fleet. The switch is manufactured by the famous marine maker Chadburns of Liverpool and features a sprung loaded operating lever which flicks back to the off position when not held down. We assume this is a safety device to prevent the whistle being left on inadvertently! A most attractive and unusual item of marine memorabilia. Diameter is 7" (18cm)
2628 Royal Naval Trench Art Box - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Naval Trench Art Box - A fine example dating to WWI and far superior to most examples we have seen. Beautifully constructed from polished mahogany, it is in the form of a heart with hinged lid and a finely carved Naval crest, surmounted by a king's Crown. Inserted within the lifebelt motif is a black and white period photograph of an unnamed naval officer. We assume the item was presented by him to his wife or girlfriend and was subsequently used to store cosmetics as the aroma still lingers within! It measures 9" (23cm)
