Air Ministry Mechanics Oil Can by T.E.Bladon - Click for the bigger picture

Air Ministry Mechanics Oil Can by T.E.Bladon

A good issued example in brass with a curved spout with a threaded tip but as usual the screw in stopper is absent.. The base of the spout is clearly stamped with the makers name T.E.Baldon (who also made oil lamps for the railways). This example carries an impressive Kings Crown and AM (Air Ministry) property mark and is dated 1940 so was clearly used in the RAF and would have served throughout WWII including the battle of Britain. The reservoir of the can is accessed by a removable threaded plug on the base..No doubt this was an essential piece of kit in an RAF 'Erk's' tool box. Sadly no history with this one but no doubt it has a story to tell! Minor bumps and knocks commensurate with use but a modest but interesting display item in an RAF collection. Measures 9" (23 cm)
