George Augustus Erskine Harkness, born in November 1901, was commissioned from the ranks of the Royal Air Force in May 1928, while serving in Egypt. Shortly thereafter posted to No. 70 (Bomber) Squadron at Hinaidi in Iraq, a Vickers Victoria unit which was re-designated for BomberTransport duties from May 1931, one of his first duties was to assist in the evacuation of nearly 600 men, women and children from Kabul during the Afghanistan disturbances of 1929, when the Squadron was temporarily based in India. Advanced to Flying Officer in November 1929, Harkness remained actively employed on bombing and transport duties, not least in the operations against the followers of Shaikh Mahmud in South-ern Kurdistan in the period October 1930 to May 1931, when No. 70’s aircraft flew a total of 1160 hours: Harkness was mentioned in despatches by Air Vice-Marshal Ludlow-Hewitt (London Gazette 6 May 1932 refers).

Promoted to the temporary rank of Wing Commander in July 1945, he reverted to Squadron Leader in the General Duties Branch of the Royal Air Force in January 1947, when he joined the Secretarial Branch.

THE MICHAEL SHAW COLLECTION OF AIRCRAFT SALVAGE Michael Shaw was born in 1935 into a family of scrap metal merchants, and after leaving school aged 15 in 1950 he joined his grandfather’s business, A. Shaw & Sons of Hounslow, specialising in army surplus vehicles. After a period of National Service serving in Korea and Malaya, Michael re-joined the company in 1957, working on aircraft that the company bought and stripped, from which period he began collecting name plates taken from the aircraft. In 1972, the firm purchased 170 tonnes of aircraft engines from International Alloys of Aylesbury, a major aluminium smelter, which included Bristol Hercules and Centaurus engines, American radial engines by Wright and Pratt & Whitney, and 142 German engines, including many by Daimler Benz and BMW. After the bulk of the aircraft were sold the company moved into the jet age and became specialists in this field, being on the government contract list for tenders. During this time the company were approached by film companies making war films who wanted vehicles and aircraft for their sets, and they built up a considerable fleet of historic transport available for hire, including the only roadworthy Sherman tank in the country. Amongst the numerous films for the company provided props were The Longest Day (1962), and The Battle of Britain (1969). This last-named classic film famously used 100 actual aircraft which were adapted and modified to the required historical period. In 1979, Michael set up his own company, M.L. Shaw, as a supplier of aeronautical and marine equipment, working alongside R.J. Coley of Hounslow, buying and selling engines and aircraft parts. During this later period, Michael worked on over 150 films and television programmes, including Star Wars I, II & III, and 19 of the James Bond films. One memorable achievement was the full scale replica cockpit and interior of a B17 for which Michael supplied all the aircraft instruments and fittings on set at Pinewood in just two weeks for the American war film Memphis Belle (1990). He retired aged 70.

662* Aircraft Name Plates. A unique private collection of 195 screw mounted aircraft engine name plates, collected from 1958 to 1985, ranging from WWI to Concorde era, representing aircraft from Britain, America, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Russia, including Armstrong Siddeley, Alvis, Napier, Armstrong Whitworth, Cirrus, Rolls Royce (including all the Rolls Royce Avon Mks), Pratt & Whitney, Bristol, De Havilland, Dornier, BMW, General Electric, Alison, Franklin, Wright etc, mostly approximately 10 x 8cm, displayed on a large presentation board with wooden frame, 127 x 186cm The earliest plate in the collection is the Rolls-Royce Hawk, No 1, which according to the Rolls Royce Heritage Trust was built on 16 September 1916. The latest is the Olympus 593 which powered a Concorde. (1) ÂŁ10000-15000

663* B.A.C. TSR2 XR 219. A pair of compressor fans from XR 219, 102cm diameter, presented in wooden frames with engraved brass plaques The XR 219 was powered by two Bristol Siddeley Olympus 320 engines, it flew for a total of 13 hours 9 minutes from 27 September 1964 to 6 April 1965. When the project was cancelled XR 219 was moved from Boscombe Down to the gunnery ranges at Dungeness to be broken up. The engines were removed and then laid on the marsh for many years until the ranges closed. The engines were then sold on tender for scrap metal and these LP compressor fans were saved. The fans are believed to be made of molybium, a high duty alloy which was designed to take massive bird strikes, in fact in the development stage frozen chickens were used to test the durability! BAC TSR2 XR 219 was a cancelled Cold War strike and reconnaissance aircraft developed by the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) for the Royal Air Force in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It was designed to penetrate a well defended forward battle area at low altitudes and at very high speeds and then attack high value targets in the rear with nuclear or conventional weapons. The TSR2 was cancelled due to rising costs and inter-service squabbling over Britain's future defence needs which led to the controversial decision to scrap the programme in 1965. ÂŁ4000-6000 (2)

764* RAF Bomber Command No. 8 (Pathfinder Force) Group. An archive of over 1,000 mostly vintage photographs from the collection of Squadron Leader Howard Lees (1907-2006), circa 1942-46, including approximately 700 night and day bombing aerial photographs, photograph time, place, altitude, photographer, etc. details in the image at foot of each photograph, plus photographs of 63 Pathfinder HQ staff, London and Paris, aircraft, technical photos, photographs of India, Sumatra and Borneo (1945-46), etc., sizes varied from approximately 33 x 29cm to 13.5 x 14cm, arranged by subject in 14 folders, ring binders and packets, various sizes An important archive belonging to a technical expert whose work on aerial photography greatly helped to improve the accuracy of wartime bombing. Lees was involved in at least two important developments which helped to improve accuracy by proving or disproving whether bombers had actually been over the target as claimed. These included the two-shutter (master/slave) camera which helps eliminate the frequent ruining of images caused by ground fires and a single prolonged exposure. Another of his developments was H2S photography that enabled the RAF to bomb a target even when cloud was obscuring it; the photographic developments in which Lees was involved enabled the cathode ray tube image of the target to be recorded at the moment a bomb was released. Lees’s work on H2S was so secret that he had to process the results himself, rather than allow them to be released to the station photo sections. He also designed a combined target marker and photo flash device for Mosquito bombers, which helped to improve the effectiveness of the Light Night Striking Force. Key German cities were thereafter regularly photographed at night from heights above 27,000 feet. At the end of the war in Europe Lees was posted to Burma but finding that the unit had been disbanded and that there was no one to feed or pay him he went to Bangkok and then was eventually posted to Jakarta. He was mentioned in dispatches twice and his final appointment before demobilisation in 1946 was at HQ Allied Command South-East Asia, where he was involved in the aerial survey of the region. After the war he returned to Charles Twite & Co, of Wigston, Leicester. He had begun work for this manufacturers’ agents in the shoe trade as an office boy at age 16, and after returning became managing director and chairman. He worked almost until his death at the age of 97. Provenance: From the Lees family by direct descent. (a carton) £2000-3000

A monumental fair copy transcript of the letters of Walter Berlin of the 8th Royal Bavarian Field Artillery Regiment, written to his mother Lina Berlin in Nuremburg, 1914-18, 9 volumes, written up 1933-37 for Walter’s 50th birthday, neatly written in purple ink in a large and legible but very difficult hand to rectos and versos throughout, beginning at the start of the war in August 1914 and writing almost daily until the end of the war in 1918, 1914 as 1 volume, each year thereafter bound as 2 volumes, a total of approximately 3,500 numbered pages, a few scattered diagrams, some original letters, postcards, telegrams, memos, a menu, etc. tipped in, contemporary brown boards, each titled in gilt ‘Weltkrieg’ with year and part numbering, rubbed, one spine near detached, folio (33 x 22cm) An incredible and thorough record of a German Jewish artillery officer’s complete war. His regiment was on the Western Front and engaged actively from the beginning to the end of the war. It was present at the Battle of Alsace Lorraine, Verdun, Battle of the Somme, Battle of Arras and the big battles of 1918. Dr Walter Berlin (1887-1963) was born in Nuremberg. He studied law, obtaining his doctorate in 1913. Throughout the First World War he served in the 8th Royal Bavarian Field Artillery Regiment and was discharged as captain and battery commander. He was awarded the Iron Cross First and Second Class and the Bavarian Order of Military Merit Fourth Class with Crown and Swords. He also had the badge signifying that he’d been wounded. From 1919 Dr Walter Berlin practised as a solicitor in Nuremberg, and actively represented Jewish interests. He was a chairman of the Nuremburg branch, and a member of the National Board, of the Central Union of German Citizens of Jewish Faith (the ‘Central-Verein’) whose main purpose was the fight against antiSemitism. In this capacity he gave evidence, in 1929, against the Nazi ‘Gauleiter’ Julius Streicher before a jury in a Nuremburg court. Streicher was sentenced to two months’ imprisonment for incitement to class hatred. After the Nazis came to power in January 1933, Jewish lawyers were forbidden to represent ‘Aryan’ clients and Walter Berlin acted exclusively for Jews. In his efforts to help endangered Jews Walter Berlin was often supported by the Nuremburg police president, Dr Benno Martin. Later, during what became known as the ‘Kristallnacht’ on 9th and 10th November 1938, Berlin was arrested by SAmen and severely beaten resulting in the loss of one eye. He was released from prison at the end of November but had his right to practise as a lawyer taken away. In April 1939 Walter and his wife Rose emigrated to England, reuniting with their two children towards the end of the year in London. In London he joined fellow refugees from Germany and founded the Belsize Square Synagogue. Initially unemployed, he became a fire watcher during the Second World War for the owners of a London office building. His main task was to make German incendiary bombs harmless during air raids and for this he was awarded the British Defence medal. He took up accountancy learning the profession in the office building which he guarded. He worked as an accountant until the end of his life, dying in London on 21 August 1963 aged 76. (9)

ARTIST'S RESALE RIGHT LAW ("DROIT DE SUITE") Lots marked with AR next to the lot number may be subject to Droit de Suite. Droit de Suite is payable on the hammer price of any artwork sold in the lifetime of the artist, or within 70 years of the artist's death. The buyer agrees to pay Dominic Winter Auctioneers Ltd. an amount equal to the resale royalty and we will pay such amount to the artist's collecting agent. Resale royalty applies where the Hammer price is 1,000 Euros or more and the amount cannot be more than 12,500 Euros per lot. The amount is calculated as follows: Royalty For the Portion of the Hammer Price (in Euros) 4.00% up to 50,000 3.00% between 50,000.01 and 200,000 1.00% between 200,000.01 and 350,000 0.50% between 350,000.01 and 500,000 Invoices will, as usual, be issued in Pounds Sterling.

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. 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. 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 19.5% of the hammer price. Where the lot is marked by an asterisk the premium will be subject to VAT at 23.40% 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 19.5% and assents to the Auctioneer receiving the said commission. 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. 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. 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.

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. 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. 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 theAuctioneer for inclusion in his auction sales each seller acknowledges that he/she accepts and agrees to all the conditions. 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. The value of the goods so covered will be the hammer price, or in the case of unsold lots the lower estimate, 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. 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. 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.
