Sir James Pennethorne (1801-1871) was an architect and planner, particularly associated with buildings and parks in Central London. He was born in Worcester and moved to London to study architecture, first under August Pugin and then John Nash. In 1824 he set off on a tour of France, Italy and Sicily, studying Antiquities. On his return in 1826 he entered the office of John Nash and as his principal assistant directed the West Strand, King William Street and other important improvements completing the Park Village East and West in Regent’s Park after Nash’s death. In 1832 he was directly employed by the Commissioners of Her Majesty’s Woods to prepare plans for further improvements to the capital. One of his aims was to form a great street running from the extreme east to extreme west of London but this proved to be too great for the government. Between 1852 and 1856 he completed the west wing of William Chambers’ Somerset House. Pennethorne was knighted in recognition of his public services, in November 1870.

THE SCHNEIDER TROPHY, FEATURING THE D’ARCY GREIG COLLECTION D’Arcy Greig was born in Morayshire, Scotland on 1 February 1900, educated at Weston High School, Elgin and then Elgin Academy Morriston. The family moved to Kingston upon Thames and then settled in Bexhill on Sea following the death of his father in 1913. He joined the Royal Flying Corps in 1918. After passing vigorous training at the Royal School of Aeronautics, Greig then transferred to 190 and 192 (night training squadron) at Upwood, Cambridgeshire. He was trained to fly the BE2 bi-plane, the De Haviland 6 (Skyhook) and the FE2b pusher bi-plane. On 20 August 1918 he was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant in the RAF Aeroplane & Seaplane Branch, and 8 days later posted to 83 Squadron flying over France on night reconnaissance and bombing operations. Continuing with various operations throughout the remainder of the war. His post war service included a posting in Iraq with 6 Squadron, he took part in many ferocious operations obtaining the Distinguished Flying Cross ‘for gallantry and devotion to duty’. Greig returned to the United Kingdom in 1923 and the following year became an instructor at the Central Flying School. It was here that he linked up with Flt Lt John Boothman, who would also later join the High Speed Flight and be part of the Schneider Trophy Team. On 1 May 1928 Greig was posted to the staff of the Maritime Aircraft Experimental Establishment at Felixstowe and on 5 November he raised the World Air Speed Record to 319.57mph (in four consecutive flights) in his ‘Flying Bullet’. Flight Lieutenant S. Kinkead, a member of the RAF High Speed Flight, had been killed attempting the same record in March that year and Greig became an official member at Calshot in February 1929 as a result of Kinkead’s death. The 1929 Schneider Trophy contest was held on 7 September at Cowes, the race course started and finished at Ryde Pier, and was thirty-one miles long on each lap, consisting of a four-sided ‘kite’ pattern. The British team consisted of Squadron Leader A.H. Orlebar as its flight commander, with Flight Lieutenant Stainforth, Flight Lieutenant D’Arcy Greig, and Flying Officers R.L.R. Atcherley and H.R.D. Waghorn as competing pilots. The aircraft consisted of two Supermarine S6 Seaplanes, N247 and N248 flown by Waghorn and Atcherley, Greig was allocated a Supermarine S5 N219. Only Italy had sent a team for this particular race, the weather was perfect on the day of the race, Waghorn had the first attempt reaching speeds of 328.63mph and won the race, Greig 282.11mph and Atcherley disqualified, the two Italian aircraft were forced to retire leaving a M52R coming 2nd (284.2mph). It is estimated that 1.5 million people watched the race from both shore sides of the Solent and also on a flotilla. Greig continued his service with the RAF until 1946 retiring as an Air Commodore, he passed away on 7 July 1986, his ashes scattered across the Solent, a fitting tribute to a Schneider Trophy legend. 686* Schneider Trophy. An Impressive Art Deco firescreen, commemorating the 1931 win at Cowshot, Hampshire, the glass panel etched ‘The Schneider Trophy 1931, Flt. Lt. John. N.

AIR COMMODORE HERBERT GEORGE BRACKLEY CBE, DSO, DSC, FRGS, FRAes Ordre de la Couronne Belgique, Croix de Guerre 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 (1867-1938) 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-DarwinSydney-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 trans-Atlantic 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.

Airborne Weather Radar System, manufactured by EKCO Avionics as used on the Concorde prototype, with stores reference plate serial no. 66 267 00600, 15cm high x 15cm wide x 38cm deep By 1966 EKCO had embarked on what was to prove their last major civil development, the E390 system, being specifically designed to meet the challenge of producing weather radar for Concorde. The unique Concorde operational requirement meant that EKCO had to overcome many new problems. Of the notable challenges, one of which was that the radar signal being emitted and returned had to electronically compensated whenever the droop snoot visor was operated since the refraction angle changed. The second problem was that due to the heat within the nose, conventional soft solder could not be used for soldering connections etc, therefore a high temperature solder had to be developed. With the speed of Concorde, the conventional maximum range of 180 miles was deemed inadequate and therefore a special ‘pencil beam’ with a 360 mile also had to developed. Whille EKCO had always ensured duplication within its equipment, Concorde took this to new extremes whereby there were completely separate operating systems, literally everything was duplicated.

INFORMATION FOR BUYERS AFTER THE AUCTION Online Results: If you weren’t present or able to follow the auction live, you can find results for the sale on our website shortly after the sale has ended. Payment: The price you pay is the amount at which the auctioneer’s hammer falls (the hammer price), plus a buyer’s premium (a percentage of the final hammer price) and vat where applicable. You will be issued with an invoice made out to the name and address provided on your registration form. Please note successful bids made via live bidding cannot be invoiced or paid for until the day after an auction. A live bidding fee of 3% + vat will be added to your invoice.

METHODS OF PAYMENT Cheque: Cheques will only be accepted on the day of the sale by prior arrangement (please contact our office for further information). Cheques by post will be accepted but a period of 5 working days will be required for the cheque to clear before purchases can be collected or posted. Cash: Payments can be made at the Cashier’s Office, either during or after the sale. Debit Card: There is no additional charge for purchases made with debit cards in the UK. All card payments drawn on an overseas bank, however, will be subject to a 2% surcharge. Credit Cards: We accept Visa and Mastercard, to which a 2% surcharge will apply. It is advisable to let your card provider know in advance if you are intending to purchase. This reduces the time needed to obtain authorisation when the payment is made. Bank Transfer: All transfers must state the relevant invoice number. If transferring from a foreign currency, the amount we receive must be the total due after the currency conversion and the deduction of any bank charges. Note to Overseas Clients: All payments must be made by bank transfer only. No card payments will be accepted unless by special prior arrangements with the auctioneers. Collection/Postage/Delivery: If you attend the auction in person and are successful in your bid, you are free to collect your item once payment has been made. Successful commission or live bids will be invoiced to you the day after the sale. When it is possible for our in-house packing department to send your purchase(s), a charge for postage/packing/insurance will be included in your invoice. Where it is not possible for our in-house packing department to send your item you will be required to make your own arrangements or to contact Mailboxes etc (tel: 01793 525009) who may be able to help. We provide a monthly delivery service to Central London, usually on Wednesday of the week following an auction. Payment must be received before this option can be requested. A charge will be added to your invoice for this service.

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. For the purposes of calculating the resale royalty the Pounds Sterling/Euro rate of exchange will be the European Central Bank reference rate on the day of the sale. Please refer to the DACS website and the Artists’ Collecting Society website for further details.

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.
