Luftwaffe Focke-Wulf FW-190 Starboard Tail Fin Panel - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Focke-Wulf FW-190 Starboard Tail Fin Panel - Understood to have been recovered in WWII from a FW-190 that was shot down near Caen, France on 21 July, 1944. We have just imported this panel direct from Normandy and while we don't have specific information on the actual aircraft it was from, we have researched it fully and the rivet pattern and the orientation match exactly with the 190. In addition, the remaining evidence of the internal framing aligns to where the structure was fitted on the FW-190. The swastika has the correct dimensions and the panel has evidence of red paint where the rudder stop was fitted. The paintwork is clearly original and shows signs of heat and crash damage where it has been torn from the aircraft on impact rather than being cut from the airframe. These panels were perhaps the ultimate souvenir for victorious allied pilots on the squadron back in WWII and they remain so for the serious collector and museum today. This is an area, however, where the fakers practise their art, so care needs to be taken in investing in such an item and we are happy to give an unconditional guarantee on the originality of this example. The panel is single sided with a small section of the original framing remaining to the inside. While the alloy is slightly distorted, it makes a fine display being an impressive size at approximately 32" x30" (82 cm x76 cm).

RAF Base Calshot Inter-Flight Shield - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Base Calshot Inter-Flight Shield - Presented by the officers to the winners of the annual tug of war competition and is dated 1925 and was awarded every year from then until 1937 when the competition appears to have ceased, possibly due to the war clouds over Europe. It resumed in 1946 and was last awarded in 1950. The central engraved shield is surrounded by 17 smaller engraved and dated shields and we can confirm in 1934 was won by the HQ, in 1932 201 Flying Boat Sqdn, 1930 Workshops and 1948 201 Sqdn. RAF Calshot was a sea based aerodrome in the Solent, established by the RFC in 1913 as a RNAS station testing sea planes. It was taken over by the RAF in 1922 and was the home of the high speed flight to train pilots for the Schneider Trophy races. From 1929 to 1931 "Aircraftsman Shaw" formally known as Col. T. E. Lawrence or "Lawrence of Arabia", was posted to Calshot to help with race preparations and also to work on the development of the 200 class sea plane tender. In 1921 201 Sqdn were based at Calshot followed by 240 in 1937. In WWII the base was used mainly for repair and maintenance but was involved in the evacuation from Dunkirk and from 1942 was the home to Air Sea Rescue craft. Post war Calshot-based Sunderlands flew in the Berlin air lift flying over 1000 sorties. Calshot finally closed in 1961 and our plaque is a unique souvenir and is steeped in the history from the very early days of the RFC, RNAS and RAF. 17" (43 cm)

RAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Squadron Leader's Pennant - Accompanied by a sailing pennant marked RCYC Team RAF NSC Race 1949. We do not have any direct provenance with these items but have speculated the squadron leader was also a sailor and a member of the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club. We have yet to positively ID NSC, although could possibly be Northampton Sailing Club. The squadron leader pennant measures 31" x 22" (79 cm x 56 cm) and is in good flown condition. The sailing pennant has a couple of moth nips while the hand embroidery is very crisp. Seeing both came in from the same source, we assume they date from the 1940's.

RAF Trench Art Candlesticks - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Trench Art Candlesticks - A very fine matched pair made from polished aircraft aluminium interspersed with what we believe to be paxolin which was used as an electrical insulator in WWII, as well as for the manufacture of instruments panels. Almost certainly made by aircraft fitters in their off duty moments and probably date from the second World War. We see many examples of trench art but these are as nice as we have had and would make the perfect addition to an RAF or trench art collection, as well as being completely functional candlesticks. Measure 7.5" (19 cm)

Small Aircraft Propeller - Click for the bigger picture SoldSmall Aircraft Propeller - Manufactured in laminated timber with red painted tips and varnish finish. It has no identification marks on the hub so we have no idea what aircraft it was designed for but judging by its size, possibly a microlight or even a target drone. An attractive display example of a genuine propeller at an entry level price. Measures 44" (112 cm)

Junkers JU-87 Stuka Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldJunkers JU-87 Stuka Relic - We believe this component to be the inner tip of the aircraft's flap (Innere Verstellklappe), position closest to the fuselage. The relic has been painted with the aircraft details confirming it is from Junkers JU-87 R-4 with code LI+FW (6234) III/I STG 5 and dated 24.4.42. We have identified with aircraft crashing due to engine failure over Murmansk. Lt. Rudolf Newmann survived while the other crew member Uffz Kurt Graef was reported M.I.A. This relic is in as recovered condition with traces of the original paint. It is scarce to find an identifiable crash relic with provenance from the famous Stuka. Measures: 17" (43 cm).

RAF Irvin Flying Jacket - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Irvin Flying Jacket - complete with integral hood incorporated within collar. Chest size 36-38" (92-97 cm). Original zips and issue label. These jackets were issued to RAF Coastal Command.

Messerschmitt ME-110 Engine Cowling Relic - Click for the bigger picture SoldMesserschmitt ME-110 Engine Cowling Relic - The superb example featuring the original squadron crest of JG5 Group who fought against the Russians over Murmansk, flying out of bases in Norway and Finland. The 7th Staffel of JG5 was a destroyer group equipped with ME110 C's. The crest features a rapant lion which was the coat of arms of the Graf Von Sponeck family. We have identified this part as a lower engine chin cowl mounted in front of the exhaust and behind the propeller spinner. This relic features a ventilation outlet and inside evidence of where a data plate was once fitted. We have no specific information on the actual aircraft this was recovered from, suffice to say it was found in Murmansk. An incredibly rare opportunity to own an identifiable aircraft relic with guaranteed original artwork. Measures: c.27" (69 cm) on base.

Luftwaffe Flight Mechanic Overalls - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Flight Mechanic Overalls - A fine replica example which we understand to be a film prop surplus item, although we have no information on the movie it may have starred in. In excellent used condition with nice age patina. While belt loops are attached, the belt itself is absent. No size labelling but would certainly fit someone of 6' + (183 cm). Ideal for the re-enactor or for a mannequin display.

Luftwaffe Leuchtpistole Model M1928 in Relic Condition - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Leuchtpistole Model M1928 in Relic Condition - Despite being recovered from a crash site and distorted by fire and impact damage, it is still recognisable as a flare pistol issued to Luftwaffe aircrew in WWII. While we don't have any information on the actual crash details, we were told it was recovered in the Hastings area of East Sussex and as it is clearly dated 1939, could well relate to a Battle of Britain incident. It carries various acceptance and waffenampt stamps. This item is for sale in as recovered condition and the breach is jammed, the lock, trigger and hammer are all seized with distortion due to the crash and fire. Despite this it makes a fine souvenir and would undoubtedly have a story to tell if it could talk.

RCAF Identity Bracelet - Click for the bigger picture SoldRCAF Identity Bracelet - Named on one side of the silvered tag C.4284 R. Canning RCAF and on the reverse side From the Boys of 12 R.D. It also carries what appears to be a maker's mark cmc. The chain is brass and comes in a period velvet lined presentation box, although we believe this originally held cufflinks. We have no provenance with this item but if any visitors can identify Mr. Canning or confirm who were the boys from 12 R.D., we will add details to the description.
4207
RAF Trench Art Paper Knife - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Trench Art Paper Knife - Made from aircraft scrap materials with the handle fashioned from Plexiglas and washers with the steel section probably originally used as a tensioning support. The cross guard is brass and the grip top copper. Almost certainly crafted by an aircraft fitter in his spare time. A decorative and functional addition to any RAF collection. Measures 6.5" (17 cm)

USAAF A-14 Oxygen Mask & Hose - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSAAF A-14 Oxygen Mask & Hose - As issued with original card storage box. The mask is in near mint condition and marked medium, made by The Ohio Chemical Company and is embossed property Air Force, US Army and dated 5/44. The mask is fitted with a full harness in similar condition. It would be hard to find a nicer example to display with your USAAF headgear.

Fighter Pilot - Click for the bigger picture SoldFighter Pilot

This is a first edition and a personal record of the Battle of France. It was written anonymously when published in 1941 as the author was very much in the front line, serving with no. 1 Squadron. The author was subsequently killed in action and his name was released as Paul Richey. This gripping book is a personal account of the Battle of France from September 1939 to June 1940 when the author was flying Hawker Hurricanes. The book is perfusely illustrated with original black and white photographs of his fellow pilots Killy, Prosser, Boy, Moses, the Doc and others! It also has pictures of the aircraft, airfields and combat. The book has its original dust jacket with just minor damage and is in generally very good condition. A great read as well as an excellent reference book for the aviation collector.

The Last Enemy - Click for the bigger picture SoldThe Last Enemy

This is a first edition, published in 1942 shortly before Richard Hilary's untimely death in a flying accident. A classic fighter pilot's story and covers his training and the Battle of Britain when he suffered severe burns to his face and hands and underwent plastic surgery under the pioneering surgeon Archibold McIndoe, thus becoming one of his very early "guinea pigs". The book is with the original dust cover which shows some wear but is protected by a protective jacket. Generally in good overall condition.

Luftwaffe Navigator's Instruments in Issue Case - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Navigator's Instruments in Issue Case - Marked on canvas K.W.27 and manufacturer's code bvu indicating the set was made by Franz Kuhlmann of Wilhelmshaven. The case has a fitted interior containing 4 perspex instruments marked with manufacturer's code, Waffen eagle and swastika and dated 1941. One is named Nadel-Zahlen and features an inset dial marked Fliegeruhr (pilot's watch); this instrument has a small crack, but still displays well. The rectangular instrument is marked Zielgevierttafel, indicating a target designation grid and was no doubt used to help calculate the bomb run. The set is completed with 2 small square instruments marked with kilometre distances on the edges. A rare cased set. Case measurements 9" x 7.25" (23 cm x 19 cm)

Frazer Nash F.N.50 Mid Upper Turret Cupola - Click for the bigger picture SoldFrazer Nash F.N.50 Mid Upper Turret Cupola - As fitted to early examples of Avro Lancaster heavy bombers and in service would have been fitted with twin Browning.303 machine guns. It was described by those who used it as "roomy and comfortable but difficult to exit in a hurry! Sadly, we don't have any provenance with this example but no doubt it has a story to tell. The aluminium frame is in excellent condition and is fitted with the original plexiglas showing some damage but generally in good display condition. Data plates are fitted inside confirming stores reference no. 50E 12601, serial no. 314 and drawing nos. 449, 383 and 203.

Air Ministry Chobert Riveter Type A No. 6563 - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Chobert Riveter Type A No. 6563 - This is only the second example we have had and is nicely marked with A.M., King's Crown and dated 1943. It was supplied by Aviation Developments Ltd. and comes in a fitted pine box. The external property plaque has been removed, possibly when the item was "acquired" from the Air Ministry! Interestingly, the box is marked with a military broad arrow and with the letters RN, so we speculate this example could have served with the FAA. The box contains a sealed tin and a further three wooden boxes with slide lids containing rivets, rods and assorted spare parts. While offered for sale as a collector's item, the rivet gun has a strong spring and may well still function as intended if you have a Spitfire project in your garden shed! Box measures 15" x 12" (38 cm x 30 cm)
4600
Section of Propeller Tip - Click for the bigger picture SoldSection of Propeller Tip - Finished in RAF colours and while we do not know what aircraft it came from, judging by its size it is likely to be a single engine trainer or fighter. Made from laminated timber with original covering and polished brass leading edge. Measures 12" (31 cm)
367
RAF Aerial Kite in Original Issue Tin - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Aerial Kite in Original Issue Tin - We have had several of these over the years but this example is definitely the best! The tin carries a very clear label with illustration assembly and launching instructions. Inside everything is as you would expect and exactly as it was when it left the factory about 70 years ago. It comes complete with 33 yards of flying line in the original carton, which is nearly always missing. The kite itself looks as though it has never been removed from the tin or assembled and believe the set to be "mint and boxed". If you want the best, look no further! Measures 21.5" (55 cm)
