Gloster ‘Gladiator’ Mk.I, K7985 of No. 73 Squadron, orig. watercolour, airbrush and gouache, heightened with white, on card, 20 in x 28.75in (50.8cm x 73cm), signed A Gladiator Mk I of the second production batch shown in the attractive markings of No. 73 (Fighter) Sqn. When deliveries of this fighter were first made the squadron was commanded by Squadron Leader Eric Stanley Finch at Debden, but moved to Digby, where it gave up the biplanes in favour of the Hurricane. As was fairly common in Fighter Command at the time, the yellow wheel discs and propeller boss denoted a ‘B’ Flight aircraft. (1) £300-500


39* Fretwell (Keith). Bristol ‘Beaufighter’ Mk IF, T4638 Code NG-F of No. 604 (County of Middlesex) Squadron, orig. watercolour, airbrush and gouache, heightened with white, on card, 18.75 x 24in (47.6 x 61cm), unsigned

38* Fretwell (Keith). Bristol ‘Blenheim’ Mk.IF RX-M of No. 25 (Fighter) Squadron, c. 1939, orig. watercolour, airbrush and gouache, heightened with white, on card, 23.5 in x 21.5in (59.7cm x 54.5cm), unsigned

T4638 was the 16th Bristol Beaufighter Mk IF night-fighter built by the Fairey Aviation Company, equipped with AI Mk IV, characterised by the broad arrow nose aerial and outer wing arrays, and carrying an armament of four 20-mm and six 0.303-in (7.7-mm) guns, T4638 joined No. 604 (County of Middlesex) Sqn at Middle Wallop in 1941. At this time the squadron, commanded by Wing Commander John Cunningham, was the top-scoring night-fighter unit in the RAF, and had been one of the first to receive the Beaufighter at the height of Battle of Britain in September 1940. Although crews had been slow to master the use of AI radar, by the end of the German night Blitz of 1940-1 the Beaufighter had become the world’s most effective night-fighter. (1) £200-300

41* Fretwell (Keith). Hawker ‘Hurricane’ Mk.I, P3059, Code SD-N of No. 501 (County of Gloucester) Squadron, orig. watercolour, airbrush and gouache, heightened with white, on card, 20.25 in x 19.75in (51.4cm x 50.2cm), unsigned Representative of the classic RAF Battle of Britain Hurricane I, P3059 serviced with No. 501 (County of Gloucester) Squadron during August 1940. Aircraft of this Gloster Aircraft-produced batch, equipped from the outset with Rotol constant-speed propellers, started delivery to RAF fighter squadrons in May and continued throughout the Battle of Britain, it has been said that the Rotol propeller transformed the Hurricane’s performance from ‘disappointing’ to one of ‘acceptable mediocrity’, and modified aircraft were certainly much sought after among squadrons equipped with aircraft having the older de Havilland two-position propeller. (1) £200-300

A ‘Blenheim’ Mk IF of No. 25 (Fighter) Sqn based at Hawkinge, Kent immediately before the outbreak of World War II. Points of interest include the black and white undersurfaces, the squadron codes RX (changed to ZK in September 1939) and the squadron badge (obliterated when hostilities started) on the fin. The four-gun belly pack was a feature of most Blenheim fighters (including the Mk IVF), but the single gasoperated Lewis gun in the semi-retractable dorsal turret was a relic of inter-war conviction that single dorsal gun armament constituted adequate tail protection for ‘fast’ aircraft. (1) £200-300

40* Fretwell (Keith). Fairey ‘Swordfish’, (un-numbered, no Code), orig. watercolour, airbrush and gouache, heightened with white, on card, 19.25 in x 19in (48.9cm x 48.2cm), unsigned

Lot 39

Although fairly anonymous in being bare of a serial number, Royal Navy ship and squadron markings, this Swordfish is shown in a colour scheme typical of around 1940-1 (the period of the Battle of Taranto) and is carrying a standard naval 18-in (457-mm) torpedo. The horizontal bar suspended from the top wing centre-section, visible in the front view, is the aim-off sight, used for attacks on ships, and the emergency dinghy stowage was located in the top wing immediately outboard of the wing-fold, the rear Lewis gun is shown in the stowed position. (1) £200-300

AIR COMMODORE H.G. BRACKLEY CBE DSO DSC (1894-1948)

Herbert George Brackley enlisted in the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) in April 1915 and gained his Royal Aero Club Certificate No 1474 on 27 July 1915. As Flight Lieutenant Brackley he was a flight commander on No. 7 Squadron RNAS when the Squadron formed in November 1916, and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross in May 1917 and appointed a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order in June 1917, both awards for his exploits as a night bomber pilot. When No 7A Squadron finally became independent of No 7 Squadron in December 1917 and was renumbered as No 14 Squadron RNAS, Acting Squadron Commander Brackley was appointed its first commanding officer. On the formation of the Royal Air Force on 1 April 1918, the Squadron became No 214 Squadron Royal Air Force, with Major H.G Brackley as commanding officer. Known to friends and colleagues as ‘Brackles’, he left the RAF after the end of the war and commenced a career in civil aviation as Chief of the Air Department of Handley Page Transport. He went to Newfoundland with a Handley Page V/1500 in order to attempt the trans-Atlantic crossing but was beaten in the attempt by Alcock & Brown and so flew the other way and completed the first flight from Newfoundland to New York accompanied by Admiral Mark Kerr and Major Tryggve Gran who acted as navigator.

In 1921 Brackley joined Lord Sempill’s British Aviation Mission to Japan as Air Advisor to The Japanese Naval Air Service. The group of paperwork in the archive relating to this period includes a five page typescript document relating to the Aerial Escort for H.R.H. the Prince of Wales’s visit in April 1922, setting out the schedule, the aircraft to be used and the names of the pilots, there are numerous documents relating to technical matters, including the care and maintenance of F5’s, notes on Seal & Viking tests, letters from Fairy Aviation Co. Ltd. and D. Napier & Son Ltd. concerning the supply of seaplanes and engines, etc., notes on Salvus parachutes, arrangements for an oversea flight to Ogasawara in F5’s, a report on deck landing trials on ‘Hosho’, a sequence of correspondence relating to Mitsuibishi deck torpedo carrier and Mitsuibishi triplane (which would seem to show direct links with the events that took place eighteen years later at Pearl Harbour, using the training and tactics developed by the British Aviation Mission). It was in Japan that he met his wife, Frida, who was on a world cruise. She was the daughter of Sir Robert and Lady Edith Mond. Sir Robert Mond (18671938) was later Chairman of the family business, Brunner Mond & Co. and in 1926 the company merged with others to form ICI (Imperial Chemical Industries). Brackles and Frida were married in London on 27 September 1922 but went back to live in Japan. Returning to Britain in 1924, Brackley joined the newly formed Imperial Airways as their Air Superintendent but he remained in the Reserve Air Force Officers in the rank of Flying Officer, being promoted to Flight Lieutenant in 1925 and Squadron Leader in 1927. His task with Imperial Airways was to plan operations and organise training as well as carry out route development. He flew the first scheduled flight in the new Armstrong Whitworth Argosy from Paris to London on 5th August 1926 and he personally surveyed the route taken by the new four-engined flying boats between England and Australia. The documents in the archive relating to this period include many Imperial Airways cables and memoranda as well as an interesting five-page document (marked Confidential) entitled ‘Imperial Airways Limited Empire Air Mail

Scheme. Record of Survey Flight, Singapore-Darwin-Sydney-Singapore, of Royal Air Force Singapore III Flying Boat, 6th May – 18th June, 1936’, compiled by Major H.G. Brackley. Recalled to full time service with the RAF in 1939, he was initially assigned to Coastal Command where his experience with flying boats and transAtlantic flights proved useful and in 1943 he was appointed to the post of SASO in the newly created Transport Command.

At the end of the war he relinquished his commission and continued his civil aviation career, initially with British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) and later as Chief Executive of British South American Airways Corporation (BSAA). Amongst his post-war achievements was the successful evacuation of over 35, 000 government officials and families, evacuees and destitutes between India, Pakistan and Baluchistan. Brackley sadly lost his life in a swimming accident in Rio de Janeiro on 15th November 1948.


149* The Brackley Archive. A fascinating and important archive of approx. 230 manuscript letters written by Herbert Brackley to his wife, Frida, the first from Kamakura, Japan, dated 6 May 1921, the last from Christiansborg Castle, Accra, Gold Coast, dated 22 October 1948, together with an almost complete run of his pocket diaries from 1922 to 1948 (lacking only 1930), containing meticulous daily detail, mostly in pencil, also approx. 180 vintage b & w photographs of various sizes (some captioned), plus a good group of ninety-eight items of paperwork relating to Brackley’s time in Japan with the British Aviation Mission, c. 1920-23, and a further group of forty-two items of paperwork c. 1933-39 (including many telegrams) relating to his time with Imperial Airways After the sudden death of her husband, Frida, was persuaded by his many friends and acquaintances to take the matter of his memoirs in hand and eventually, in 1952, she managed to publish a substantial tome entitled Brackles. Memoirs of a Pioneer of Civil Aviation, based mainly on extracts from his letters and diaries, a copy of which is included in this lot. (1) £3000-5000

150* Davids (Arthur Rhys, DSO MC and Bar, 1897-1917). Original ALS dated 26/10/17 No. 56 Squadron, R.F.C., B.E.F., and addressed, the day before he was killed, believed shot down at Polterrjebrug, very near the front line, at approx. 11:08, British time, by Leutnant Karl Gallwitz, at the time acting Staffelfuhrer of Jasta Boelke, to Frida Mond, later to marry Herbert Brackley, ‘Thanks ever so much for your letter. I was so glad to get news of your family again. I hope you are enjoying your new French School: and I am so glad you seem to have liked Oxford. I hope I shall see when I go there after the war, if I continue to have my present luck in the scrapping. It really is splendid fun if you take it in the right way. Though somehow one has not that immense satisfaction which the people on the ground have that they have done their in the beastly business. Personally I feel I have done nothing at all! Remember me to all the family & excuse haste. Sincerely yours Arthur Rhys Davids Arthur Rhys Davids was just twenty when he was shot down and killed, he had been on the Western Front with 56 Squadron for six months, having gone straight into the RFC from Eton. He came to public fame as ‘Eton’s Boy Airman’ through shooting down German ace Werner Voss and he is remembered among other things as the pilot who always carried while flying a small volume of William Blake’s poetry which had been given to him as a Christmas present by his sister in 1916. The exact details and circumstance of Arthur Rhys Davids’s last fight and death are not known but it seems likely that both he and Voss lie in complete obscurity, probably under five miles apart somewhere in the area of Ypres. A copy of the biography of Arthur Rhys Davids entitled ‘Brief Glory’, by Alex Revell, published in 1984, is included in this lot. (1) £700-1000

In 1935 he went to Filton near Bristol to learn to fly and the following year he applied for and was granted a regular commission in the Royal Air Force. Early in his RAF career, since he was by no means tall, he acquired the long-standing nickname of ‘Shorty’! Most of his pre-WWII service was in Malta, where he took part in ‘anti-piracy’ patrols (largely in flying boats) to protect British shipping from Mussolini’s intimidatory attacks. Whilst in Malta, Maurice met Lieutenant Commander F. Sidney Cotton, an Australian pilot who had flown on reconnaissance flights with the RNAS during WWI and Flying Officer Robert H. Niven, a Canadian pilot with engineering qualifications. These two men had been brought together by Squadron Leader Fred W. Winterbotham of the Air Ministry, to explore the possibilities of clandestine reconnaissance flights over Germany. Maurice had been involved with reconnaissance flights during 1937 and was convinced of the importance of air photography in times of war. On 15th June 1939 the three men flew to Sicily and covered Comiso, Augusta, Catania and Syracuse before returning to Malta, where the photographs proved to be excellent. Longbottom was not allowed to accompany them on further flights, nevertheless, they were able to discuss their ideas concerning the most suitable RAF aircraft for photographic reconnaissance.

Longbottom subsequently submitted to the Air Ministry, in August 1939, a memorandum entitled ‘Photographic Reconnaissance of Enemy Territory in War’. He argued that the use of a single light bomber for this task (Bristol Blenheim IV) was extremely dangerous and he recommended the employment of a fast single-engined machine, stripped of radio and armaments so that it could carry extra fuel tanks, such as the new Spitfire I. Eventually, two Spitfires were allocated to the ‘Heston Flight’, a secret photographic reconnaissance unit and Maurice and Bob Niven were selected as the two ‘pioneer pilots’. Operating at a height of 30, 000-35, 000 feet temperatures fell to –50 degrees centigrade, there was no cockpit heating but the pilots had an oxygen mask and plenty of underwear for survival. On return from a mission the pilot was usually reported as ‘numb and frozen stiff’, but he hung on to consciousness until down and switched off and then collapsed. The Spitfires were painted a duck-egg blue as camouflage against the sky but on the occasions when they were approached by Messerschmitts, their speed and manoeuvrability got them home safely. Longbottom and Bob Niven flew sortie after sortie over enemy territory and in February 1940 they were among the first seven RAF officers of the War to be awarded the DFC. On 5th July 1940 Maurice married Lilian (Linda) Scott Butler. They had one daughter, born on 5th November 1943, whom they named Andrea Margaret – Andrea, after Bob Niven’s wife. Late in 1940 Maurice left aerial photography to become a test pilot, initially at the RAF development establishment at Boscombe Down, Wiltshire and was later seconded to the aircraft manufacturers Vickers-Armstrong. He carried out much of the test flying for Barnes Wallis and his team, who were developing the ‘bouncing bomb’ required

35

for 617 Squadron’s epic ‘Dam Busters’ raid on the Mohne and Eder Dams in western Germany. Maurice piloted the successful “First Live Drop” of the ‘Upkeep’ bomb on May 13th, 1943, only three days before the Dam Busters raid on 16th May. A notable contribution to the success of the raid was Maurice’s earlier aerial photography of the area of the dams and the approaches. Paul Brickhill, in his well-known book The Dam Busters records an earlier successful test flight, ‘… Vickers test pilot Shorty Longbottom flew it to Reculver for the drop. It was pouring with rain and Wallis, out on the dunes, did not even notice it as he eyed the Lancaster diving out of the east towards the markers. Longbottom had her tucked down nearly to 60 feet at 258 indicated air speed… the bomb fell slowly, hit cleanly – and worked. Down on the dunes, Longbottom, banking round, saw a white dot bobbing about. Wallis had taken his hat off and was waving it in the air, dancing and shouting while the rain fell down his face’ (p. 68). Maurice continued flying for VickersArmstrong, in particular test-flying Mosquitos and Warwicks but in early 1945 the directional stability of the Warwick was in doubt and caused three accidents within a few days of each other. The first happened to Mutt Summers, from which he and his flight observer, Jimmy Green, escaped without serious injury, the second accident was experienced by Maurice Summers, Mutt’s brother, on PN 777, and in this the flight observer, G.F. Hemsley broke his leg. Maurice was killed in the third accident, on 6th January 1945 when his aircraft crashed onto a railway junction at Weybridge in Surrey. The cause was rudder aerodynamic overbalance and was corrected in the later GR Mk V and retrospectively in other marks, mainly by the addition of a dorsal fin.

For most of 1944 he had been regularly flight-testing Vickers new Warwick aircraft and it was while testing one of these machines on 6th January 1945 that he crashed into a railway junction at Weybridge, Surrey and was sadly killed.

First Live Drop. 13.5.43’ and on the reverse ‘ED 817/G M.V.L.’ It is interesting to note that this live drop was only three days before 617 Squadron’s epic ‘Dambusters’ raid on the Mohne and Eder dams in western Germany on 16th May 1943.

enough to fly but ‘yesterday... Maurice Summers went up very high to carry out some tests to investigate the rudder trouble suspected in Maurice’s accident, with the result that he got into difficulties and had to bail out. There was a strong wind blowing at the time with the result that his parachute dragged him across a roadway and he received rather severe head injuries, but I don’t think he is in any danger. I wish to God that MVL had been up high. I just can’t settle down in this place with everything around me to remind me of him and our friendship’, he also mentions returning Maurice’s logbooks and discusses the disposal of his motor car and other belongings, the second letter dated 27-2-45 starts by

saying that Linda’s wish has now been carried out ‘... and dear Maurice is now with the pheasants etc. which gave him and myself so much pleasure. I am very grateful to those concerned in making it possible for me to carry out this last little ceremony which was very simple but I am afraid very sad’, he also discusses the disposal of Maurice’s books, saying that he might give one to Barnes Wallis, and goes on to say ‘M. Summers by the way is making very good progress and is quite his old self, although of course with a fractured dome (head) he will need a lot of care for some time to come’, the handful of photographs include a poignant image of Maurice and Linda, with arms linked, looking happy, dated on the reverse May 1941 (-)

GROUP CAPTAIN PETER DOUGLAS THOMPSON, DFC, AE (1920-2003)

The following lot being offered for sale as one collection represents the remarkable career of a dedicated, brave and much appreciated fighter pilot whose wartime service spanned many of the key areas of aerial conflict – the Battle of Britain, the defence of Malta, the Western Desert, and the final heavy bombing of Germany. Perhaps inspired by the same sense of service as his father, who had been commissioned into the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War, Thompson joined the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve at the time of the 1938 Munich Crisis. Having trained on Tiger Moths at Gravesend he was trainee pilot by the outbreak of war. In July 1940 he was commissioned and soon moved to 32 Squadron flying Hurricanes. During the ensuing Battle of Britain Thompson brought down three German aircraft over the Channel flying from Croydon with 605 Squadron. His logbook notes other possible ‘kills’. When Malta was under siege in 1941 Thompson was one of 24 pilots who volunteered to fly Hurricanes to the island from HMS Ark Royal. As one of the more experienced pilots he was kept on in Malta and had a lucky escape when

40

he baled out after his Hurricane was hit by an enemy aircraft, landing in the same field as his crashed machine. Accounting for another three enemy aircraft in the fierce battle in defence of the island he was awarded his DFC in January 1942. After a stint as a flying instructor at Khartoum Thompson joined 601 Squadron flying Spitfires in support of the Eighth Army in the Western Desert and later continued to fly in its support as it moved up Italy. He was re-called to England and given command of 129 (Mysore) Squadron flying Mustang Mk III fighters, supporting ground troops in France, defending London against Doodlebugs, and escorting bombers on the final heavy bombing raids against German cities. After the war Thompson was granted a regular RAF commission and took over command of Biggin Hill in 1956. It was here, at what was probably the most famous Battle of Britain aerodrome, that he originated the idea of putting together the aircraft that became the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. His final posting was as Air Attaché at the British Embassy at Lima in Peru. He died in 2003, aged 82.

There are many more items in the collection that cannot be fully described in this catalogue, including a number of recently published books with author inscriptions. There is also much more of the Thompson story yet to be told, particularly his postwar career. Through his work at Biggin Hill in the 1950s he is now finally recognised as the person primarily responsible for the creation of what has become the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. While at the Air Ministry in the early 1960s, he promoted the development of vertical and/or short take-off and landing aircraft (P1127 Harrier) apparently upsetting a number of the top brass at the time, and ironically, almost fifty years later, the government has just announced the scrapping of HMS 'Ark Royal' and her entire fleet of Harrier jump jets. And then there was his tour of duty at USAAF Air Force Base Langley, Virginia, flying F104s & Phantoms! Peter died on 2 March 2003 aged 82 and is survived by his wife Marie (Mimi) and son and two daughters. (-)

Banking, Volplaning, Spiral Descents, Vertical Descents, Low Flying, Taxing, &c., &c ...’, printed text in various point sizes, centred on buff paper, 215 x 120mm On 25th November 1913 Temple became the first Englishman to attempt the bunt (loop) in England. The attempt was made at Hendon using the Bleriót XI-2 and about which the journal Flight (29 November 1913) reported: ‘He set out to do it or die ... Temple pushed the nose of the machine down, and in 30 seconds he had won through - he had flown upside-down and was safely landed. It was a splendid feat for one with only such small experience as he, and he had not any very definite knowledge as to whether he had really been upside-down or not, and none at all as to how he got back again, as he admits himself; but there were some on the ground with experience sufficient to judge, who will agree with me that he is very lucky to be alive, and wish with me that he will now be satisfied and leave it alone - at any rate, for a time ... He is clever, he has pluck and nerve, and will make a first-rate pilot - if he will only try not to go too fast.’ The same journal (3rd January 1914) refers to his exhibition flights over the grounds of Hillingdon Court where he received ‘a tremendous ovation from a large crowd’. Continuing to take extreme risks, Temple attempted an exhibition flight at Hendon on 25th January 1914 in spite of the cold and gusty weather and whilst still recovering from a bad case of influenza. The engine of his Bleriót cut out and the aircraft crashed, Temple dying from his injuries. He was buried in Acton, the place of his birth. (1) £100-150

Duke was the chief test pilot of the Hawker Aircraft Company at a time when transonic and supersonic flight was at a highly experimental and extremely dangerous stage. He was one of a small group of test pilots, some of whom would lose their lives, exploring the regions of the “sound barrier”. On September 6 1952 at the Farnborough Air Show he was to fly the supersonic Hawker Hunter jet fighter. He was scheduled to take off at the end of a display by the new de Havilland DH 110. As John Derry and his observer Alan Richards flew over the airfield at high speed, the DH 110 disintegrated, killing 28 spectators and the aircraft’s crew. Without hesitation Duke took off as soon as the runway was cleared. Although deeply saddened and shocked by the disaster and by the loss of his close friend Derry, Duke, ever the professional, flew an immaculate display, ending with a sonic boom in salute to his dead friends. “My Dear Duke”, the Prime Minister wrote to him the next day, “it was characteristic of you to go up yesterday after the shocking accident. Accept my salute. Yours, in grief, Winston Churchill.” (2) £50-80

On the outbreak of war, Boustead obtained a commission in the 2/8 Middlesex Regiment, and travelled with them to Egypt in August 1915, where he saw active service on the Western Frontier Campaign against the Senussi. On his return in 1916, he was attached to the Royal Flying Corps, and after a month’s training obtained his wings and was posted to France in October 1916.

Lieutenant Boustead was subsequently mentioned in Despatches on December 13th, 1917. His Wing Commander wrote to his father ‘Your son was a very gallant officer and died a magnificent death, and even if he receives no official recognition of his gallantry, the story of his last fight will remain as fine a memorial as any official reward could be’.

SQUADRON LEADER REGINALD (‘REG’) WILLIAM LEWIS DFC (1922-2009)

Born in Poplar, London, Reginald attended the local school before going to Clarks College, Walthamstow. During the Blitz his family were bombed twice in the space of a month so as soon as he was old enough, he volunteered to fly with the RAF because he ‘wanted to give them a taste of their own medicine’. He was accepted and sent to Canada for training as a navigator. For most of 1942 he was on bombing operations over Germany with No. 15 Squadron, flying the four-engined Stirlings. Lewis successfully completed thirty operations at a time when only about 25% of crews survived so many missions and he

and the rest of the crew were then due a rest tour but when their Captain, 23 year old Squadron Leader Tom Cooke DFC AFC DFM, offered the possibility of flying with a special duties Squadron, they all volunteered, arriving for duty at Tempsford in Bedfordshire in 1943.

the course of the next twelve weeks, enduring many hardships and with the help of the Resistance, he managed to avoid capture and made his way back to Britain, becoming one of the celebrated ‘Evaders’. All the members of his crew managed to evade capture and got back to England.

Reginald and his crew had already complete fifteen operations dropping supplies and SOE agents from converted Halifax bombers to ground parties in occupied Europe, when on February 7 1944, they were given the important task of resupplying the highly successful Resistance network in south-east France, known as ‘Jockey’. Weather conditions were appalling and Lewis’s skills as a navigator were stretched to the limit as the aircraft was forced to descend and fly at very low level down the Rhone Valley. When they were forced to climb to avoid rising ground, the engines began to ice up before two of them caught fire owing to the increased strain. The SOE agent was ordered to bail out, and soon after the crew were forced to follow. Lewis landed in deep snow and over

Lewis was awarded a DFC for his outstanding work in navigating to remote dropping zones that were lit by ground parties using a handful of torches. He later served in south-east Asia on the personal staff of Air Marshal Sir Keith Park, the Allied Air Commander. Released from the RAF in July 1946 he embarked on a long and successful career in investments in the City of London. He served on the executive committee of the RAF Escaping Society, which assisted surviving helpers and the dependents of those who had given their lives for shot-down airmen and he later became the Society’s secretary, serving until it was disbanded in the late 1990s. He was also Treasurer of the Bomber Command Association.

Lot 354 354* ‘The Avroplane’. An important Pioneer and “Daily Mail” Prize-contest design model by Edwin Alliot Verdon-Roe, 1907, a unique exhibition display model of a pioneer flying-machine, created by Alliott Verdon-Roe (the founder of AVRO and Saunders-Roe Aircraft Companies) later knighted for his services to the Aviation Industry, this model, numbered “B2”, is the second maquette for his winning example of two versions submitted for the prize-contest sponsored by the Daily Mail, for a free-flight aeroplane design. Of biplane format utilising pusher-type airscrew powered by a three cylinder Anzani motor, the open-work wire-braced wooden airframe featuring a large forwardmounted lifting-surface, under which was situated the pilot’s control-seat, with dual surface main-planes to the rear, and with additional movable aileron-control surfaces mounted in parallel between the mainplanes. The engine mounted centrally behind the pilot, driving the rear-mounted propeller via a long shaft to clear the main flying surfaces. Well fabricated of wood, brass and metal construction, with cottonthread simulating rigging wires, creampainted flying surfaces, with black open frame fuselage and silver gravity fuel tank etc, this model represented a sturdy

airframe structure with practical application for scaling up to a full-size machine capable of flight, wingspan 12 in, length 7.5in (30 x 19cm), the designer having graduated through engineering via railway and marine practical experience, now turned his attention to aeronautics, and this his first serious design, was subsequently built by Roe in a small rented shed at the newly opened Brooklands Motor Circuit, with its flying field within the central curtilage of the track. The prototype was his first successful aeroplane in a long series of nowvenerated machines, produced subsequently by his enlarged enterprise at the Manchester factory where he ultimately relocated The following year by June 1908, Verdon-Roe had built his first aeroplane to the model-pattern and flew it for a short duration - the first true Englishman to design and build his own heavierthan-air powered machine. A full-size flying replica of this aeroplane was specially re-created to celebrate its centenary in his memory, and is now on display at the RAF Museum at Duxford - a testament indeed to this genius, who laid the foundations of the British Aircraft Industry. The model is contained in his original wooden transit-box, ailerons lacking, and showing some age wear and deterioration to cotton rigging wires. (1) £1800-2500

COLEMAN COLLECTION Quentin Bland (1941 – 2009) Honorary Historian of the 384th USAF Bomber Group dropped on Germany were carried on planes which flew from Grafton. The airmen and crews stationed there were very kind to him as a boy, saving their sweet rations for him and allowing him to climb up into the planes for a guided tour. The village children were also treated to a Christmas party every year thrown by the airmen.

“Dad was born in August 1941, in Grafton Underwood, Northants. As a small child he spent all of his time watching the B-17 bombers take off and land on their missions to Germany, counting them out, counting them back. The airfield at Grafton Underwood was home to several ‘Bomb Groups’ one of which was the 384th Bomb Group (Heavy). The first and last bombs

Dad kept in touch with the air crews over the years, regularly writing to them, and he was honoured to be bestowed with the Honorary title of Historian for the 284th B.G. Since his early childhood he had collected any information, memorabilia and photographs pertaining to the war years, and because of his unrivalled knowledge on the subject, he was asked to provide information to the makers of the movie ‘Memphis Belle’, and travelled down as a guest to watch the filming, to make sure they kept it true to life. He also

collaborated with several writers including Roger Freeman and Phillip Kaplan with their books on WWII. He also spoke on the subject to many groups, put on extremely popular films in the Grafton Village Hall, and was on the radio regularly. Dad was extremely well thought of in his field, and travelled to the USA on several occasions with his family as guests of the 384th B.G. reunion group, which were always unforgettable, and he loved to see his American friends, both in the States, and he also single-handedly put together the reunions on British soil, in which the veterans travelled over en masse to re-visit the airfield, attend church services and memorial dedications, and enjoy themselves at dances, medieval banquets and the like. They were always a roaring success.” Contributed Samantha.

One aircraft, No. 44-6923, call-sign JD-J of the 545th Bomb Squadron, piloted by 1st Lt. D.A Mackeller, developed an engine fire shortly after take-off. The pilot elected to turn back to make an emergency landing back at base, but lost height rapidly and the pilot and co-pilot F/O O.F McLaughlin attempted a belly-landing in a field to the west-side of the A43 KetteringNorthampton road. Now too low for the crew to bale out, the Flying Fortress landed heavily with full 4,000lb bomb-load, which exploded on impact, killing all crew members instantly. Even more poignant was the fact that 6 of the eight crew members were on their 35th and final tour of duty, and that hostilities ceased in Europe the following month. These artefacts, excavated during an archive dig in September 1990, remain as a tragic memorial to the bravery of the aircrews of the second World War. (-) £200-250

UNIFORMS & FLYING CLOTHING

445* American Flying Jacket. A rare early World War II 1st American Volunteer Group (A.V.G.) leather flying jacket, the breast and upper arms sewn with decorated and woven circular and shield-shaped badges with the emblem of this clandestine group, size unknown, no name tab, a complete and most historic piece of flying clothing, the back sewn with a ‘blood chit’, with Chinese Republic flag over an inscription in Chinese which translated reads; ‘This foreign person has come to China to help in the war effort. Soldiers and civilians, one and all, should rescue and protect him.’ The 1st American Volunteer Group (A.V.G.) “The Flying Tigers” was established, with the approval of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, by Claire L. Chennault, a retired U.S. Army Air Corps. officer, for the purpose of helping to defend China from the Japanese. Chennault had been an advisor to Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek in 1937 and was director of the Chinese Flying Training School at Kunming, so he became the natural choice to lead this new unit. Pay for pilots, groundcrews and administrators was well above the then going rate and very soon after the establishment the A.V.G. had assembled 100 pilots and perhaps 200 supporting engineers and administrators. During the winter of 1940-41 Chennault oversaw the purchase of 100 Curtiss P-40s which were diverted from Royal Air Force order; a few ruffled feathers then perhaps? Once they arrived in Burma the aircraft were assembled and flown on test by pilots of the Central Aircraft Manufacturing Co. before being handed over to the A.V.G.. Decorated with a shark’s nose and mouth these P-40s in the hands of the volunteers accounted for themselves with honour. Many raiding Japanese aircraft were destroyed during the defence of Rangoon, the three Flying Tiger Squadrons “Adam & Eve”, “Panda Bears” and “Hell’s Angels” remained operational, with considerable difficulty until the end of the Burma campaign in July 1942.

Conditions of Sale and Business 1. The Seller warrants to the Auctioneer and the buyer that he is the true owner or is properly authorised to sell the property by the true owner and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims.

7. Any representation or statement by the Auctioneer in any catalogue, brochure or advertisement of forthcoming sales as to authorship, attribution, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price is a statement of opinion only. Every person interested should exercise and rely on his own judgement as to such matters and neither the Auctioneer nor his servants or agents are responsible for the correctness of such opinions. No warranty whatsoever is given by the Auctioneer or the seller in respect of any lot and any express or implied warranties are hereby excluded.

2. (a) The highest bidder to be the buyer. If during the auction the Auctioneer considers that a dispute has arisen he has absolute authority to settle it or re-offer the lot. The Auctioneer may at his sole discretion determine the advance of bidding or refuse a bid, divide any lot, combine any two or more lots or withdraw any lot without prior notice. (b) Where goods are bought at auction by a buyer who has entered into an agreement with another or others that the other or others (or some of them) shall abstain from bidding for the goods and the buyer or other party or one of the other parties is a dealer (as defined in the Auction Biddings Agreement Act 1927) the buyer warrants that the goods are bought bona fide on joint account.

8. (a) Notwithstanding any other terms of these conditions, if within fourteen days of the sale the Auctioneer has received from the buyer of any lot notice in writing that in his view the lot is a deliberate forgery and within fourteen days after such notification the buyer returns the same to the Auctioneer in the same condition as at the time of the sale and satisfies the Auctioneer that considered in the light of the entry in the catalogue the lot is a deliberate forgery then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the purchase price of the same refunded. "A deliberate forgery" means a lot made with intention to deceive. (b) A buyer's claim under this condition shall be limited to any amount paid to the Auctioneer for the lot and for the purpose of this condition the buyer shall be the person to whom the original invoice was made out by the Auctioneer.

3. The buyer shall pay the price at which a lot is knocked down by the Auctioneer to the buyer (“the hammer price”) together with a premium of 17.5% of the hammer price. Where the lot is marked by an asterisk the premium will be subject to VAT at 17.5% which under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme will form part of the buyer’s premium on our invoice and will not be separately identified (the premium added to the hammer price will hereafter collectively be referred to as “the total sum due”). By making any bid the buyer acknowledges that his attention has been drawn to the fact that on the sale of any lot the Auctioneer will receive from the seller commission at its usual rates in addition to the said premium of 17.5% and assents to the Auctioneer receiving the said commission.

9. Lots may be removed during the sale after full settlement in accordance with 4(d) hereof. 10. All goods delivered to the Auctioneer's premises will be deemed to be delivered for sale by auction unless otherwise stated in writing and will be catalogued and sold at the Auctioneer's discretion and accepted by the Auctioneer subject to all these conditions. In the case of miscellaneous books, the Auctioneer reserves the right to extract and dispose of books that, in the opinion of the Auctioneer at his absolute discretion, have no saleable value and, therefore, might detract from the saleability of the rest of the lot and the Auctioneer shall incur no liability to the seller, in respect of the books disposed of. By delivering the goods to the Auctioneer for inclusion in his auction sales each seller acknowledges that he/she accepts and agrees to all the conditions.

4. (a) The buyer shall forthwith upon the purchase give in his name and permanent address and pay to the Auctioneer immediately after the conclusion of the auction the total sum due. (b) The buyer may be required to pay down during the course of the sale the whole or any part of the total sum due, and if he fails to do so after such request the lot or lots may at the Auctioneer's absolute discretion be put up again and resold immediately. (c) The buyer shall at his own expense take away any lot or lots purchased no later than five working days after the auction day. (d) The Auctioneer may at his own discretion agree credit terms with a buyer and extend the time limits for collection in special cases but otherwise payment shall be deemed to have been made only after the Auctioneer has received cash or a sterling banker’s draft or the buyer's cheque has been cleared.

11. (a) Unless otherwise instructed in writing all goods on the Auctioneer's premises and in their custody will be held insured against the risks of fire, burglary, water damage and accidental breakage or damage for which insurance the Auctioneer will charge a premium of £1.50 per £100. The value of the goods so covered will be the hammer price, or in the case of unsold lots the best bid, or in the case of loss or damage prior to the sale that which the specialised staff of the Auctioneer shall in their absolute discretion estimate to be the auction value of such goods. (b) The Auctioneer shall not be responsible for damage to or the loss, theft, or destruction of any goods not so insured because of the owner’s written instructions.

5. (a) If the buyer fails to pay for or take away any lot or lots pursuant to clause 4 or breaches any other condition of that clause the Auctioneer as agent for the seller shall be entitled after consultation with the seller to exercise one or other of the following rights: (i) Rescind the sale of that or any other lots sold to the buyer who defaults and re-sell the lot or lots whereupon the defaulting buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer any shortfall between the proceeds of that sale after deduction of costs of re-sale and the total sum due. Any surplus shall belong to the seller. (ii) Proceed for damages for breach of contract. (b) Without prejudice to the Auctioneer's rights hereunder if any lots or lots are not collected within five days or such longer period as the Auctioneer may have agreed otherwise, the Auctioneer may charge the buyer a storage charge of £1.00 + VAT at the current rate per lot per day. (c) Ownership of the lot purchased shall not pass to the buyer until he has paid to the Auctioneer the total sum due.

12. The Auctioneer shall remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller thirty days after the day of the auction provided that the Auctioneer has received the total sum due from the buyer. In all other cases the Auctioneer will remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller within seven days of the receipt by the Auctioneer of the total sum due. The Auctioneer will not be deemed to have received the total sum due until after any cheque delivered by the buyer has been cleared. In the event of the Auctioneer exercising his right to rescind the sale his obligation to the seller hereunder lapses.

6. (a) The seller shall be entitled to place a reserve on any lot and the Auctioneer shall have the right to bid on behalf of the seller for any lot on which a reserve has been placed. A seller may not bid on any lot on which a reserve has been placed. (b) Where any lot fails to sell, the Auctioneer shall notify the seller accordingly. The seller shall make arrangements either to re-offer the lot for sale or to collect the lot and may be asked to pay a commission not exceeding 50% of the selling commission and any special expenses incurred in cataloguing the lot. (c) If such arrangements are not made within seven days of the notification the Auctioneer is empowered to sell the lot by auction or by private treaty at not less than the reserve price and to receive from the seller the normal selling commission and special expenses.

13. In the case of the seller withdrawing instructions to the Auctioneer to sell any lot or lots, the Auctioneer may charge a fee of 12.5% of the Auctioneer's middle estimate of the auction price of the lot withdrawn together with Value Added Tax thereon and any expenses incurred in respect of the lot or lots. 14. The Auctioneer’s current standard notices and information (i.e. Collation and Amendments) will apply to any contract with the Auctioneer as if incorporated herein. 15. These conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law.
