447* An 1886/1887 Starley & Sutton `Special Rover` Safety Bicycle. This sprung framed machine, numbered ‘69’, is based on the James K Starley patent number 12,586 of October 1886, and in all likelihood was manufactured in late 1886 or early 1887, it carries the Starley & Sutton Badge, this early Rover bicycle has a 30-inch rear wheel and a 32-inch steering wheel, both with ¾-inch crescent rims and grey tyring. Drive is by 6-inch slotted cranks and a Brampton type inch-pitch block chain to a fixed rear sprocket, the chain-wheel and spindle held in two adjustable bearing races. There are two significant and unusual features to the design. The first is that the spoon brake acts on the rear wheel utilising a gap formed by parting the rear mudguard, the spoon activated by a right-hand lever on the handlebars and two fulcrums. The other special and unusual feature is in the presence of the highly visual sprung loaded front forks, using a double turn spring of stout proportions, one side held firmly in front of the headstock and the other held in a tubular grip designed to move with the motion of the forks. Other features include: foot resting pegs, rear mounting step, chain-guard, correct period pedals, original handlebar grips and leather saddle. A J. Lucas & Sonmanufactured ‘Captain’ hub lamp is fitted as was common at this time, to a right-hand axle extension. A period bell is also fitted. In keeping with conservation practice, the writer judges that this machine has been repaired and renovated rather than restored. Replicated parts such as mudguards and brake work can be clearly identified. This lot comes complete with a copy of: ‘A History of Rover Cycles’ by John Pinkerton & Derek Roberts, photographs of the bicycle as found, a drawing of this bicycle showing the location of all of its numbers, specification details, and a copy-photograph of the original owner This particular model as shown in the George Moore engraving was promoted as being ridden by Viscount Bury, who at the time was President of the National Cyclists Union. It is believed that this historic ‘Special Rover’ is unique today, and has not only a secure place in the history of British bicycle manufacture, but in the history of James Starley in particular, and his various inspired designs, his partner Sutton unfortunately having been killed in a trap accident in 1886. James Starley with his Rover was seen as producing the first practical safety bicycle, then the Holy Grail of the Cycle Industry; indeed, the bicycle was easy to mount and ride, having small wheels and chain drive to the rear wheel, key design steps that were instantly copied by others, and that allowed for a resurgence in the industry. ‘The Rover has set the Fashion to the World’, was the slogan used in Rover advertising for a long time afterwards. This bicycle was found in the basement of a building that was due to be demolished in 2002. It was a little distressed but surprisingly complete except for mudguards, chain-cover and brake-work, after lying undisturbed, it is believed, since the 1890s. Indeed, the accompanying photograph shows the original owner with this machine in 1887 or 1888. When a detailed inspection of the bicycle was carried out by Rover expert and restorer Tony Huntington in 2005, the machine was found to carry the machine number 69 in 20 different places, making this is one of the earliest known Rovers built, possibly second only in age to the 1885 Rover exhibited until recently by the Science Museum, South Kensington. The earliest Rovers possessed 36-inch front wheels because Starley correctly believed that the larger wheel cushioned road-generated shock. While other manufacturers generally opted for a smaller front wheel, Starley continued producing his Rational Rover with a 36-inch front wheel similar to the early race and record breaking Rovers until circa 1891. This ‘Sprung Frame Special’ should be seen as an early experiment by Starley to find another way for a more comfortable ride, predating the introduction of the pneumatic tyres of Dunlop, Michelin & others, which would change the comfort and well-being of all riders for ever.

MBE London Gazette 10 December 1946 ‘This Officer completed eight operational sorties as an observer over a period extending from April 1940 till 26th June, 1940. On that date his aircraft was shot down during an attack on the Kiel Canal and Squadron Leader Reavell-Carter was taken prisoner. From January 1941 until March 1942, he was engaged in the construction of four escape tunnels all of which were discovered by the Germans before they could be used. In June 1943, Squadron Leader Reavell-Carter thought of a method of escape from the camp. He himself was too large to take advantage of this scheme, but it was used by two other prisoners of war. This Officer was one of a large party which escaped by a tunnel from Sagan camp in March 1944. A member of his section was noticed by a sentry and Squadron Leader Reavell-Carter was forced to disclose his position in order to prevent the guard from shooting. He served 21 days detention for his attempt (THE COOLER). During most of his period of captivity, Squadron Leader Reavell-Carter obtained many escape aids from the Germans and organised a foraging party. He was liberated near Lubeck in May 1945.’ (1) £7000-10000

The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, O.B.E. (Civil) Member’s 2nd type breast badge, on Lady’s riband bow; French Croix de Guerre 1939-1940, with bronze oakleaf, extremely fine, sold with a quantity of original documentation, including what would appear to be Hansen’s account of his early days in the French Army in 1940, handwritten entries in French language in a notebook (with later typescript English translation); four official movement orders / letters for the period March-April 1945, one in the name of ‘2/Lt. T. Hansen’ from the Special Forces H.Q., Montagu Mansions, London, dated 14 April 1945; a printed form with typed citation for his French Croix de Guerre, dated at Paris, 26 February 1946; the certificate of award for his Danish Medal for Participation in the War 1940-45, dated 17 September 1947; and a signed copy of the citation for his Legion of Honour, dated 6 May 1952. Thorkild Hansen was born in Copenhagen in January 1900 and was working in France at the time of the outbreak of hostilities. Accompanying research and comparison of the below listed recommendations would seem to suggest that he first came into contact with his future wife - then Mrs. Marguerite Holst - in Marseilles as early as 1940, and that his subsequent wartime career followed a very similar course, namely employment by S.O.E. and M.I. 9 for the smoothrunning of escape lines from France to Spain Mrs. Marguerite Holst (afterwards Mrs. Hansen) was English by birth (nee Addy), known to her friends as “Madge” and married her first husband pre-war. Having already witnessed the events of the Spanish Civil War due to his work for the International Refugee Commission, she quickly found herself embroiled in the clandestine world of S.O.E. operations after they made their way to Marseilles in 1940 and he was recruited into S.O.E. by a fellow Scandinavian for work in the ‘DF’ escape section: M. R. D. Foot’s S.O.E. in France describes him as a ‘quaker shipbroker’ who ‘behind his ponderous appearance kept a swift intellect, a painstaking character, and a strong dislike of the nazis.’ For her own part, as detailed in the following recommendation for her O.B.E., Mrs. Holst played a vital role in the setting up of the famous “Garrow-Pat O’Leary” escape line, largely under the auspices of M.I. 9. Marrying Thorkild Hansen soon after the War, on the annulment of her first marriage, she died in February 1970. Provenance: Sotheby’s 23 June 1971 (Lot 505) and DNW 22 September 2006 (Lot 93) (7)

At approximately 4pm, over the Thames estuary, the squadron were bounced by Hurricanes of 32 RAF Squadron. The article then goes on to state, in a typical swirling dog fight Achleitner was almost certainly shot down by Pilot Officer Pete Brothers, who recorded Achleitner’s name in his logbook although further information suggests he may have collided with a Hurricane flown by Pilot Officer Gillman who was killed following a collision with a Bf109 in the same area at the same time. Achleitner was forced to bail out of his fighter high over the estuary, injuring himself against the control column as he exited landing north of the Reculver near Hearne Bay and found by a motor boat manned by three men wounded but alive, he survived the war in a Canadian POW camp and passed away in Salzburg, Austria in 1991.

After approaching the owners of the Royal Nassau balloon, Charles Green and Edward Spencer, they agreed to suspend Cocking’s parachute below the balloon and attempted to reach a height of 8000 feet over Greenwich. However owing to the weight of both balloon and parachute the ascent only reached 5000 feet, when Cocking released the parachute, which due to miscalculations in the weight of the parachute, resulted in too quick a descent, the parachute turning inside out and breaking up a few hundred feet above ground. Cocking was instantly killed and his body found in a field in Lee. (1) £200-300

Christen proceeded to destroy a further seven enemy armoured vehicles, single handedly repelling the attack and bringing his personal tally to thirteen tanks within 24 hours. On 27 September the Russians were finally driven out of the Lushno area and his astounded comrades still found Christen crouched behind his anti-tank gun.

His diary also reflects the wider developments of the war. He reports of the death of Graf Zeppelin, worries that America may declare war, and on 15 March records ‘Revolution in St. Petersburg’. On 14 May 1917 Schramm was transferred to the military airfield at Bialystok. A scattering of later comments added in 1919.

HEINZ WOLFGANG SCHNAUFER (1922-1950)

1001* Schnaufer (Heinz Wolfgang, 1922-1950). The port tail fin from Schnaufer’s favourite Messerschmitt Bf110G-4, “G9+EF”, c.1944-45, made of aluminium and painted with 121 ‘kill’ icons, consisting of small roundels and four-engined British bombers with the date of each victory painted below, a large hakenkreuz (swastika) painted in black and white beneath, small data plate ‘Sach Nr 110 310 H / Werk Nr 20032 3’, bullet holes, dents and chipped paintwork, 111 x 78cm (43.5 x 29.75ins) Between 1 June 1942 and 7 March 1945 Schnaufer and his crew shot down a confirmed total of 121 British and Commonwealth bombers by night, and in only 164 operational sorties, making Schnaufer the highest-scoring night fighter ace in the history of aerial warfare. It is estimated that Schnaufer, nicknamed by the Allied Air Forces as “The Night Ghost of St Trond”, shot down 37 British bombers while flying the aircraft from which this tail fin was salvaged. It was his favourite aircraft and one which he began flying on 6 July 1944. On 30 March 1945 this aircraft and a number of Fw 190s were being flown to safety from the advancing enemy troops. It was en route from Gutersloh to Wunstorf when it was shot down, probably by a chasing Mosquito, crashing in the hills of Westphalia. The pilot that day, (not Schnaufer), and one crew member was killed and a third badly injured. Bizarrely, Schnaufer, who survived the war and one of only 27 men awarded the Knights Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds, was to die on 15 July 1950 following a road accident while on a wine-buying trip in Bordeaux. He was just 28. Provenance: Wolfgang Lohmann, an expert on Luftwaffe aircraft and military-air historian. Over fifty years ago Lohmann discovered the artefact being used as a patch on a roof in the village of Hillegossen. The owner was a chimneysweep who had salvaged it in the summer of 1945, selling it to Lohmann around 1962. Now 80 Lohmann has decided the time has come to sell it. The Imperial War Museum has a tail fin from another Messerschmitt 110 flown by Schnaufer. That port fin of machine 3C+BA does not come from an aircraft in which Schnaufer scored any victories. The starboard fin of the same machine, with the symbols painted on Schnaufer’s instructions at the very end of the war, is on display at the Australian War Memorial Museum in Canberra. Much discussion surrounds these and other Schnaufer tail fins and myth and fact have intertwined to cause great confusion. This item’s authenticity is beyond dispute and supported by Wim Govaerts, an authority on Schnaufer, who reproduces a wartime photograph of Schnaufer pointing at this tail fin in his book Nachtspook van Sint-Truiden (2007). The authenticity was further confirmed to Lohmann directly by Schnaufer’s radio operator Friedrich Rumpelhardt. For more information about these tail fins and authenticity see Peter Hinchliffe’s book Schnaufer: Ace of Diamonds (Stroud: Tempus, 1999), Appendix A, pp. 284-296. (1) £15000-20000 176

(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 the Auctioneer 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 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. 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.
