Ship's Helm - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Helm - An original helmsman's wheel in hardwood (looks like teak), with a brass centre and rings. The top spoke carries a brass thimble to provide a visual aid to the helmsman to indicate when the rudder is in the straight position. The back of the hub is stamped with the number 5200, 1, ES and the military broad arrow mark, so assume this wheel has come from a Royal Naval vessel. It measures 30" (76 cm), so is an excellent display size. Please note this is a heavy item and we can provide a postage quotation on request.
HMS Striker Souvenir Pennant - Click for the bigger picture SoldHMS Striker Souvenir Pennant - A green felt example with an image of Striker's ship's badge and yellow lettering. Three vessels have carried the Striker name in the Royal Navy, but we have had it confirmed from Michael Harley in Australia this comes from the escort carrier 11, 420 tons, launched in 1942 on the Lend/ Lease Programme and returned to the USN in 1946. He tells us he lunched aboard with his Mother when she visited Sydney harbour around 1945 and he was presnted with an identical pennant from his uncle who was a memember of her crew! Generally good condition, but minor moth nibbles. It measures 18" (46 cm.)
Ship's Clinometer - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Clinometer - In brass and mounted on a mahogany board for display purposes. These instruments would originally have been bulkhead mounted and utilised gravity to indicate the list on the ship to ensure cargo was evenly loaded.

Measures 10" (26 cm).

Ship's Red Ensign and Flag Pole - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Red Ensign and Flag Pole - A genuine "red duster" fitted on original hardwood flag pole.

Marine Telescope - Click for the bigger picture SoldMarine Telescope - An original four draw marine telescope in brass with leather trimming to the forward section. The instrument is engraved A.C. Campbell K.O.S.B. The eye piece has a small sliding brass cover and whilst we are selling as a decorative item, it does function and focuses well, but would probably benefit from an internal clean. It is in generally good condition, although the brass work shows one or two minor knocks as you would expect. It comes complete with leather lens covers. Fully extended it measures 30" (77 cm).
Ship's Brass Clock - Click for the bigger picture SoldShip's Brass Clock - A fine example manufactured by Smith's Clocks & Watches Ltd. and dated 1965.
