Reference Stock Item   Description
Ship's Engine Room Inspection Lamp - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Engine Room Inspection Lamp - Finished in polished bronze with a carrying handle to the top. This example is embossed with the code BM28651 and would have been powered by a self contained dry cell battery which was secured within the base of the lantern and protected by a rubber gasket. It would have been illuminated by means of a toggle switch and was designed to be used below decks on Royal Navy and other vessels to carry out inspections in dark, inaccessible conditions or when the main power supply has failed. Whilst on offer as a display item, we believe it would still function as intended, with a suitable battery or could be converted to mains wiring by a qualified electrician. It is heavy and would also make an excellent marine door stop! 6" x 10" (15 cm x 25 cm)
Ship's Gimbal Electric Lamp - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Gimbal Electric Lamp - A quality nickel silver example with lead weighted base designed for either table or wall mounting. Probably dates from 1920's and would have been used for cabin lighting on a passenger vessel. Professionally polished, with a new holder and switch fitted and just requires rewiring for many years more service on land or sea. 27 cm. Shade for display purposes only.

Below is written "Science Technology Tactics". No. 2 Submarine Development Group was established by the USN in January 1949 for the sole purpose of solving the task of using submarines to detect and destroy enemy submarines. Overall in very good condition and heavy! 19 cm diameter.
Meteorological Office Aneroid Barometer Mk IIB - Click for the bigger picture SoldMeteorological Office Aneroid Barometer Mk IIB - A fine original instrument made by A. T. Reynolds Ltd. London and dated 1944. Originally it would have been used on a weather ship or shore station to record daily changes in barometric pressure. The scale is in millibars and extends to a full circle from 860 to 1050. The dial is marked MO and is in perfect condition, as is the glass. It features an indicating and set hand to show changes in air pressure. The instrument is housed in a brass case with a wall hanging ring attached. A quality instrument in fine, original condition. The diameter measured across the dial is 5.25" (13 cm)
HMS Hood Trench Art - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Hood Trench Art - Made in the form of a naval gun turret in a silver alloy, mounted on a hardwood display stand. To the rear is a brass plaque which has been stamped HMS Hood sunk 24.5.1941 and below a Royal Navy brass uniform button with King's Crown. HMS Hood was blown up and sunk in the action with Bismarck and Prinz Eugen with the sad loss of virtually the entire ship's company with just three of her crew surviving. 5.5" (14 cm)
USS John F. Kennedy Plaque - Click for the bigger picture SoldUSS John F. Kennedy Plaque - Mounted on a pine shield and engraved below "Presented to Commodore J.P.L. Van Dyke and party." The plaque itself is a most attractive example and is cast from brass with a rope border, complete with the ship's number CVA-67. The John F. Kennedy was the last conventionally powered aircraft carrier built by the U.S. Navy. She was launched in 1967, carried 78 aircraft and the ship's company numbered 3117. We understand as of March 2007 she is headed for Mayport, Florida to be decomissioned and layed up at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Grab this little bit of USN history while you can! Plaque diameter 8" (20 cm), shield width 11" (28 cm)
Royal Naval Trench Art Box - Click for the bigger picture SoldRoyal Naval Trench Art Box - A fine example dating to WWI and far superior to most examples we have seen. Beautifully constructed from polished mahogany, it is in the form of a heart with hinged lid and a finely carved Naval crest, surmounted by a king's Crown. Inserted within the lifebelt motif is a black and white period photograph of an unnamed naval officer. We assume the item was presented by him to his wife or girlfriend and was subsequently used to store cosmetics as the aroma still lingers within! It measures 9" (23 cm)
Yacht Tiller - Click for the bigger picture SoldYacht Tiller - Manufactured in oak with square form carved head and attractive original rope knop. Sadly, we have no information on the craft it came from, but the style indicates it could date from the 1930's. Finished in original varnish and showing some age wear. Nice patina and a very decorative display item, or could go back to sea on a classic yacht! Size 41" (106 cm).
HMS Ocean Tie Pin - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Ocean Tie Pin - Manufactured in brass with HMS Ocean enamel crest and pin back. Several RN ships have carried the name Ocean, but we believe this relates to the Aircraft Carrier which entered service in 1944, rather than the earlier Battleship of 1898. 2.5" (6 cm.)

The inside of the lid carries the maker's original instructions for use. The instrument is in totally original condition with folding sighting vanes and filters. These instruments were used to take the magnetic bearings of objects obscured from the standard compass. This example is not dated, but likely to be from the early part of the 20th century. Case measurements 7.5" x 7.5" x 6" (19 cm x 19 cm x 16 cm)

We have no other information with this item, but it would appear to be a wartime pressure gauge of some description. Original paint showing some wear. Measures 5" (13 cm)

Further research required, but we must assume that "HJD" went down with his ship.

The Ark weighed 36, 800 tons, was launched in 1950 and was broken up in 1980 after a distinguished career. No doubt these souvenirs were acquired at that time perhaps by a crew member. Original Ark Royal items do not stay with us long, so grab them while you can.
