WWII Fighter Aircraft Radio Antenna Mast - Click for the bigger picture SoldWWII Fighter Aircraft Radio Antenna Mast - The design and dimensions seem to conform to that used on the P51 Mustang, although without any data information we cannot be certain of the aircraft it came from. Finished in natural timber, in service it would have had a metal sheath cover. Evidence of earthing strips near base. Generally very good condition. Measures 31" (94 cm)

Air Ministry Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - Click for the bigger picture SoldAir Ministry Hand Bearing Compass Type 06A - The instrument is engraved 6A/1246 with King's Crown and AM stamp. These compasses were used to take bearings from the aircraft in circumstances when the fixed type of observer's compass could not be used. The handle has an internal space for a dry cell battery for illumination of the compass card. Some compass oil has evaporated and the compass card does not currently swing, although would be possible to top up oil but on offer as a display item only.

RAF Button Bar - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Button Bar - used to protect uniforms from Brasso when cleaning brass buttons. Stamped with King's Crown, A.M. and dated 1940. A small but essential piece of an RAF Airmans's kit that could well have served through the Battle of Britain! Measures 7" (17 cm)

Luftwaffe Aircraft Seat Frame - Click for the bigger picture SoldLuftwaffe Aircraft Seat Frame - This item is reported to have been recovered from Lubek in 1945 and brought back to the UK as a souvenir. It was then re-upholstered and used for many years by the owner's children in their playroom which was the condition in which we purchased it. When the cover was removed we found a paper label reading German Jet Komet Pilot's Seat Lubek 1945. We also discovered under the paint an original data plate which is somewhat faded but appears to be stamped RGS145 and below 27-H-1970 and 5783-14, although this is not entirely clear. The chair features four rubber pads carrying ink stamps which are difficult to decipher but could possibly idicate a flight school. The frame which appears to be aluminium alloy is finished in original black paint. If any visitors can give us a positive ID, we would be happy to add that to our description, but in the meantime it remains a mystery item but no doubt with a story to tell! Measures 15" wide by 16" deep and 20" high (38 cm x 42 cm x 53 cm).

Wing Commander Guy Gibson D.F.C. Flying Log book No2 - Click for the bigger picture SoldWing Commander Guy Gibson D.F.C. Flying Log book No2 - This exacting facsimile was copied from the original held in the Public Records Office, London and published in 1976. The print run has long since sold out, copies very rarely appear on the market and it has become a collectors' item in its own right. The detail and authenticity is amazing with the first and last pages stuck together, as in the original. On 16 May 1943 Gibson records "Led attack on Mohne and Eder Dams. Successful." On the following page he records "Awarded V.C. 23.05.43." The final entry is written on September 16 1944. Just three days later Gibson piloted a Mosquito, acting as Master Bomber, on a raid to Rheydt. He crashed on his return at Steenbergen, Holland in mysterious circumstances with recent reports indicating this may have been the result of a "friendly fire" incident with a Lancaster rear gunner mistaking the Mosquito for a JU 88. With the continued interest in 617 Squadron and with the remake of the Dam Busters film, these replicas can only appreciate so grab a copy while you can! This example has minor foxing to the cover (which actually adds to the authentic look of the log! but otherwise in near perfect condition inside. Please also see other 617 Sqd related items we have just listed.

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).

P-51 Mustang Trench Art Model - Click for the bigger picture SoldP-51 Mustang Trench Art Model - This is a really stunning example. 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)

617 Dambuster Squadron Gold Bullion Badge - Click for the bigger picture Sold617 Dambuster Squadron Gold Bullion Badge - This is a high quality item with a King's Crown and with Dam's logo to the centre showing a lightning bolt striking the dam with water flowing from the breach. 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. Measures 4.25" (11 cm) Please checkout other 617 related items we have just listed.

ARP's were taught to neutralise them by placing in a bucket and filling with sand. It has various stamps on the body and cap, including 306 DL 145 and has a further mark AZ8312. Body retains much original silver paint, whilst the fins show a little rust and pitting. Measures 13" (35 cm)

RAF Mk IVB Goggles Accessories Case - Click for the bigger picture SoldRAF Mk IVB Goggles Accessories Case - This item is lacking contents but perfect to display with a set of IVB goggles and it should be possible to collect over time the missing contents which would have included spare lenses, Everclear demist stick and a tool for removing the flip screen. An identical case is illustrated on page 33 of Mick Prodger's excellent Luftwaffe v. RAF Flying Clothing book. The case is made from brown leather (amazing quality for wartime production) and crisply stamped with AM, King's Crown and stores ref. no. 22C/167. Measures 5" x 4" (14 cm x 11 cm)
