The seat was subsequently held by his grandmother and then his father until his death in 1958. Channon held various ministerial positions over the years, including Secretary of State for Transport, Secretary of State for Trade and Industry and MInister of State for the Arts.

E. “Johnnie” Johnson, CB, CBE, DSO and two bars, DFC and bar The highest scoring RAF fighter pilot of the Second World War, Johnnie Johnson, was a remarkable man. He shot down thirty-eight enemy aircraft in the skies over Europe between June 1941 and September 1944 and often likened air combat to wildfowling. He flew over 1000 missions over the course of the War and was never shot down. His aircraft was only hit once by a single stray cannon shell and all of his victories (bar a quarter share of a ME110) were against single engined fighters, a quite remarkable feat. With his tremendous eye and judgement he brought to his performance with the cannon of his Spitfire the same principles of deflection shooting that had proved so effective against game birds with a shotgun in his youth. James E. Johnson was born in 1915 and educated at Loughborough School and Nottingham University. Before the War he worked as a Civil Engineer and with war clouds gathering he joined RAF Volunteer Reserve for weekend training. He was called up in August 1939 but missed the Battle of Britain due to an injury. He rejoined his squadron too late for the battle but gained valuable experience when in 1941 he joined Douglas Bader’s Tangmere Wing. He frequently flew as No.2 to the Wing leader and June 26 that year he claimed his first kill. By September, and with five more kills, he was awarded the DFC and made Flight Commander. During the following year he was given command of 610 Squadron and provided air support for the Dieppe raid. By 1943 his tally had risen to twenty five and he was appointed Wing Commander of the Kenley Canadian Wing. He flew in support of D-Day and after the landings themselves he led his Wing to Normandy where it became the first Allied fighter unit to operate in France since 1940. His final victory came on the 27th September 1944 and ended the War in command of 125 Wing. He returned to combat in the Korean war, flying fighter bomber missions whilst attached to the U.S.A.F and added the U.S. Airforce medal and the Legion of Merit to his decorations.

✪ £7000 - 9000

He retired from the RAF in 1966 and died in 2001.

CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS FOR BUYERS 1. INTRODUCTION

3. EXAMINATION OF LOTS

5. BIDDING AT AUCTION

(a) The contractual relationship of Gavin Gardiner Limited and Sellers with prospective Buyers is governed by:(i) these Conditions of Business for Buyers;

(a) GGs knowledge of lots is partly dependent on information provided by the Seller and GG is unable to exercise exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Each lot is available for examination before sale. Bidders are responsible for carrying out examinations and research before sale to satisfy themselves over the condition of lots and accuracy of descriptions.

(a) GG has absolute discretion to refuse admission to the auction. Before sale, Bidders must complete a Registration Form and supply such information and references as GG requires. Bidders are personally liable for their bid and are jointly and severally liable with their principal, if bidding as agent (in which case GG’s prior and express consent must be obtained).

(b) All oral and/or written information provided to Bidders relating to lots, including descriptions in the catalogue, condition reports or elsewhere are statements of GG’s opinion and not representations of fact. Estimates may not be relied on as a prediction of the selling price or value of the lot and may be revised from time to time at GG’s absolute discretion.

(b) GG advises Bidders to attend the auction, but GG will endeavour to execute absentee written bids provided that they are, in GG’s opinion, received in sufficient time and in legible form.

114

4. EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY TO BUYERS (a) GG shall refund the Purchase Price to the Buyer in circumstances where it deems that the lot is a Counterfeit, subject to the terms of GG’s Authenticity Guarantee.

(c) When available, written and telephone bidding is offered as a free service at the Bidder’s risk and subject to GG’s other commitments; GG is therefore not liable for failure to execute such bids. Telephone bidding may be recorded. 6. IMPORT, EXPORT AND COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS

(a) The auctioneer has discretion to refuse bids, withdraw or re-offer lots for sale (including after the fall of the hammer) if (s)he believes that there may be an error or dispute, and may also take such other action as (s)he reasonably deems necessary.

(b) Subject to Condition 4(a), neither GG nor the Seller :-

(iii) accepts responsibility to Bidders for acts or omissions (whether negligent or otherwise) by GG in connection with the conduct of auctions or for any matter relating to the sale of any lot. (c) Without prejudice to Condition 4(b), any claim against GG and/ or the Seller by a Bidder is limited to the Purchase Price for the relevant lot. Neither GG nor the Seller shall be liable for any indirect or consequential losses. (d) Nothing in Condition 4 shall exclude or limit the liability of GG or the Seller for death or personal injury caused by the negligent acts or omissions of GG or the Seller.

7. CONDUCT OF THE AUCTION

DATA PROTECTION (a) GG will use information supplied by Bidders or otherwise obtained lawfully by GG for the provision of auction related services, client administration, marketing and as otherwise required by law. (b) By agreeing to these Conditions of Business, the Bidder agrees to the processing of their personal information and to the disclosure of such information to third parties world-wide for the purposes outlined in Condition 11(a) and to Sellers as per Condition 9(i). 12.

GAVIN GARDINER LIMITED’S AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE If Gavin Gardiner Limited sells an item of Property which is later shown to be a “Counterfeit”, subject to the terms below Gavin Gardiner Limited will rescind the sale and refund the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Gavin Gardiner Limited for that Property, up to a maximum of the Purchase Price. The Guarantee lasts for one (1) year after the date of the relevant auction, is for the benefit of the Buyer only and is non-transferable. “Counterfeit” means an item of Property that in Gavin Gardiner Limited’s reasonable opinion is an imitation created with the intent to deceive over the authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not included in the catalogue description for the Property. Property shall not be considered Counterfeit solely because of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work (including, but not limited to, recolouring, refinishing or rebarreling). Please note that this Guarantee does not apply if either:(i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinions of scholars and experts at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or

(ii) the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a Counterfeit would have been by means of processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably expensive or impractical; or likely to have caused damage to or loss in value to the Property (in Gavin Gardiner Limited’s reasonable opinion); or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the Property from its value had it accorded with its catalogue description. To claim under this Guarantee, the Buyer must:(i) notify Gavin Gardiner Limited in writing within one (1) month of receiving any information that causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the Property, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is believed to be Counterfeit; and

Gavin Gardiner Limited has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Gavin Gardiner Limited may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer's cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the relevant field and acceptable to Gavin Gardiner Limited. Gavin Gardiner Limited shall not be bound by any reports produced by the Buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. In the event Gavin Gardiner Limited decides to rescind the sale under this Guarantee, it may refund to the Buyer the reasonable costs of up to two mutually approved independent expert reports, provided always that the costs of such reports have been approved in advance and in writing by Gavin Gardiner Limited.

(ii) return the Property to Gavin Gardiner Limited in the same condition as at the date of sale and be able to transfer good title in the Property, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale. PHOTOGRAPHY
