RAFA Isle of Man Presentation Item
Featuring a wood base surmounted by a brass globe on which is perched a brass eagle with outstretched wings. To one side is an RAF ensign while to the other is the Isle of Man flag. The base carries the Royal Air Force Association scroll and below silvered engraved plaque reading "Presented to the Royal Air Force Association Isle of Man Branch with grateful thanks from all members on the occasion of the Annual Conference Douglas 21/22nd June, 1952." This item was purchased at auction after the Isle of Man RAFA Club recently closed due to the sadly declining membership. While signs of years of polishing to the plaque and base, it is still readable and the item has a beautiful aged patina. Measures 12" (31 cm) from base to top of flag.
