617 Dambusters Squadron Napkin Ring - Click for the bigger picture Sold617 Dambusters Squadron Napkin Ring - If only this could talk! We purchased locally in S.W. England and it is an original ring probably from the officers' mess at RAF Scampton. It is fun to speculate that it could possibly have been used by one of the crews on operation Chastise. The ring is engraved 617 Squadron to the front and 4 on the reverse, which we assume was the owner's ID mark. The item exhibits some wear to the chrome plate with the brass beneath showing through. No maker's marks or date but looking at the wear, it could well be from the early days of 617 which was formed on 21 March, 1943. This one is for the serious Dambusters/617 collector. Grab this piece of history while you can! Please see other Dambuster related items which we have just listed.

French Airforce Gueneau & Cie Hard Shell Flying Helmet - Click for the bigger picture SoldFrench Airforce Gueneau & Cie Hard Shell Flying Helmet - These are becoming very scarce and this is an excellent original example of the type. The design is reminiscent of the WWI Roold helmet but despite its looks it remained an issue item into WWII. Features a dark brown leather covered hard shell with soft leather lined ear flaps designed to hold radio receivers. Inside the original E.Gueneau, Paris label and confirms the pattern as as 'Casque Airele' (Airele 11 type) and dated October 1939 so could well have swerved before the fall of France in 1940. It also has an ink acceptance stamp which we understand to be similar to the RAF AID embossing. When France was overrun escaping flyers formed Free French units with he RAF and the days of the Gueneau were over with the FF pilots being issued with RAF kit although a few of them were treasured by crew members & fitted with RAF G masks, especially in bombing squadrons (Lorraine, Tunisie, Guyenne).Our helmet is probably one of the last produced before the Vichy and postwar types 14, 15 and 18 and scarce to find in this condition. Size is marked at 58 (medium).

The base is made from a section of wooden propeller embossed no. 2 and inset in the top is a small steel ashtray. The model is resting on a point 303 bullet. The P-51 is finely crafted from aircraft alloy and the set has clearly been worked by skilled hands. Almost certainly dating from WWII, this is as nice an example of trench art as we are likely to find. P-51 wingspan 6" (15 cm)

Below this is the squadron motto "Après moi le déluge", which translated means "After me the flood." The badge has clear stitch marks to the reverse where it has been unpicked and we are confident this is an original item rather than a modern repro.

Harvard I & II Spade Grip AH2242 - Click for the bigger picture SoldHarvard I & II Spade Grip AH2242 - A classic example of a WWII RAF spade grip which is similar in many ways to an early Spitfire example but as the Harvard had toe operated brakes, there was no requirement for a brake lever or guide plates. Both hydrolic pipes are in place and the gun button, finished in alloy rather than brass, works as intended. In original black paint with a near perfect grip cover, it would be hard to find a more original example.
