Default Stunning RFC/RAF group come into work

It is still out there! Was in a barn until this week.

The pilot saw active service in France 1918. Not had time to read the Log book properly yet

Going to have to fetch the propeller that is with it....

Cheers, Ade.

Wow that is stunning, did It not come with medals? I love the wings, I am after a WW1 navigator wing for a group that I have.

The vendor is looking for the medals. Not sure if he has them or not..

Totally new to the market.

Cheers, Ade.

Whoa, nice grouping. The wings are great. Wonderful that they survived for this long.

Thanks guys. I am very pleased with this group.

I always make a point of asking for photos

I asked for one for a few months ago to go with a WW1 MC group. They found it and said almost as an aside "We also have a silver cigarette case that stopped a German bullet, but that won't interest you will it?"

Cheers, Ade.

I asked for photos from a family collection dating back to 1879 and the grand mother was so happy that she wrote me a 6 page family tree plus she gave me some post cards and photos. It is nice to keep things together although I am sure I will not be the first to ask if you will be selling any of the doubles. Nigel

Cheers, Ade.

Hi JL, this is the silver cigarette case I mentioned.

Cheers, Ade.

Thanks for posting the photo Ade.
The bullet must indeed have been near spent.
