THE AVIATION PHOTOGRAPHY ARCHIVE OF PHILIP J.R. MOYES (1928-2017) Philip J.R. Moyes was born in Darlington, Yorkshire, in 1928. Philip attended school in York and went on to complete National Service at an RAF station just outside the city at Linton-on-Ouse. As a teenager, during the war years of 1939-1945, he developed a keen interest in aeroplanes, particularly the fighter and bomber squadrons of the RAF based at an airfield at Linton-on-Ouse, where he spent a lot of his free time aircraftspotting. For the rest of his life Philip’s life was to revolve around the world of aviation, whether building his superb collection of aviation photographs offered here or using his expert knowledge to write about the subject professionally. Prior to embarking on his writing career, he was employed at SBAC (Society of British Aircraft Constructors) in London and at the Bristol Aircraft Corporation base in Bristol in the 1950s. While working at SBAC he became involved in the setting up and running of the press information for the Farnborough Air Show. This period gave Philip a golden opportunity to make many important contacts in the aviation field and through them he was able to obtain photographs both directly from the aircraft manufacturers of the time and aviation enthusiasts’ private collections. During his lunch-breaks at SBAC, Philip used to walk across the road into the Air Ministry and research information for a book that he wanted to write documenting the history of the 'Bomber Squadrons of the RAF', which took him over four years to compile and was finally published in 1964. The book was a huge success and in the following years Philip increased his writing output both in the aviation book and magazine areas, even conceiving, founding and editing the popular magazine ‘Aircraft Illustrated’. In his later years, he continued to contribute written articles, photographic and archive materials to a plethora of aviation publications and writers while further building his own extensive personal aviation collection. The photographs offered here are all meticulously gathered in folders labelled by aircraft type and comprise vintage and non-vintage mostly black and white photographs. Many images feature single aircraft (air and ground), but there are also multiple aircraft shots, close-ups of aircraft interiors and some featuring aircraft personnel. Many have ink stamp credits to versos including manufacturer names, photographer stamps (e.g. Charles E. Brown), press photo caption labels and production mark-ups. Sizes vary, the majority being 20 x 25cm and smaller sizes.

We are having a gruelling time being well above our knees in mud and water in the trenches for 8 hrs at a stretch The sights we see would be enough to turn anyone’s heart up. Dead bodies all over the place. When digging in the trenches it is nothing to chop a dead body in half. We come across legs, arms, heads and all manner of things buried We have been moved up and down the line being used mostly as an auxiliary Division. The Germans seem to be pushing the Russians back I expect they will be trying it on us next. The Scotch are making a name for themselves out here. The Germans are terrified when they see the Scotch advancing As I am writing this letter shells are coming over to within 100 yards of where I am sitting. I had a near shave yesterday. A shell burst a few yards away from me killing and wounding 2 men. Two or three minutes after another shell made a terrible mess of a poor chap. And the cyclists have had a very hard time although they have not been able to do their proper work since the retreat of Mons. We have been doing infantry work, engineering, sapping, Intelligence Corps work and artillery work and it is as the General of the Division said, 1 cyclist is equal to 10 infantrymen. The infantry have had a very gruelling time though’, 2 pp. on ruled paper, brown stain to upper and right margins not affecting legibility, 4to, together with a real photo postcard of Coaling in uniform with his bicycle, signed in pencil to verso, somewhat creased, spotted and slightly soiled

882* Keep Calm and Carry On. [London: Ministry of Information, 1939], lithographic poster, printed in red with white text, surmounted by a crown device, some overall creasing and bruising, closed tears to upper margin with clear tape repairs to verso, 75 x 50.5cm (29.5 x 20 ins) This now iconic design was one of four designs created by a team in the spring and early summer of 1939, which was selected to be printed up in preparation for the expected war. The other three designs were widely distributed and put to use in late 1939, but this one was retained for special use. It is estimated that over 2.5 million of the posters were printed and held in storage while awaiting sanction for public display. A few were possibly erroneously put out on the streets but the majority remained in the warehouse until April 1940 when they were pulped as part of the Paper Salvage campaign. The Ministry of Information campaign was viewed as a failure, questions having been raised in the press and in government about content and style of the campaign. The poster remained forgotten until 2000 when Barter Books in Alnwick found an example of this median size poster, since when a cache of five were discovered in the Midlands and a further fifteen found in Cupar, Fife, Scotland. Examples are held in the Imperial War Museum, London, and the British National Archives. It is estimated that about 22 small-sized originals of this poster (38 x 25.5cm) are in existence, and originals of both sizes are undoubtedly rare.

“Germany does not want war. Hitler does not want war. He is a most remarkable personality, one of the greatest I have ever met in the whole of my life, and I have met some very great men” David Lloyd George, September 1936

‘We all sat in easy chairs round a very low tea-table, on which candles were lit. It was a wonderful setting. It was a great moment when Hitler handed to L.G. a beautifully framed and autographed photograph of himself. L.G. immediately rose and shook Hitler very warmly by the hand. L.G. was immensely pleased with this. We had taken a number of photographs of Hitler with us and, after he had signed these, we took our leave. A most remarkable experience.’ A.J. Sylvester, Life with Lloyd George, (1975), pp. 149-150.

907* Hitler (Adolf, 1889-1945). Half-length portrait in half profile by Heinrich Hoffmann, mid 1930s, vintage gelatin silver print, wet stamp credit to verso ‘Photo-Haus Hoffmann, München 2 N.W. Amalienstr. 25’, signed presentation inscription to lower blank margin from Hitler to David Lloyd George on the occasion of their historic meeting, ‘Mister Lloyd George, zur freundlichen Erinnerung an seinen Beitrag in meinen Deutschland in umsichtiger Vorahnung, Adolf Hitler, Berchtesgaden den 4 /Sept. 1936’, [translation: ‘Mister Lloyd George, in kind remembrance of his contribution to my Germany with circumspect presentiment, Adolf Hitler, Berchtesgaden, 4th September 1936’], image size 198 x 150mm, sheet size 27 x 22cm David Lloyd George’s visit to Hitler at his villa, the Berghof, near Berchtesgaden, in September 1936, is invariably represented as an exercise in folly and Lloyd George (1863-1945) painted as a self-deluded victim of Nazi propaganda. His effusions in the press on his return, of a peace-loving Germany, determined never again to go to war with Britain, are an embarrassment to his admirers. Of all Hitler’s British visitors, Churchill said ‘no one was more completely misled than Mr Lloyd George’. This signed presentation photograph, a memento of that infamous meeting, is undoubtedly one of the most historically poignant and significant presentation photographs of Hitler to ever come up for sale, yoking together Britain’s Great War-time premier on the one part with the Führer of Nazi Germany on the other. Lloyd George had a one-to-one policy meeting with Hitler on the afternoon of 4 September, in the Führer’s office at his villa, the Berghof. The following afternoon the entire British party of six joined Hitler in the Great Hall there for a social gathering and tea. It was then that this photograph was presented. Printed below are account extracts of the occasion written by two of those also present, A.J. Sylvester, Lloyd George’s private secretary, and Thomas Jones, a close associate of the then prime minister Stanley Baldwin. ‘It was probably half-past five when we sat down in a large circle of low and easy chairs for tea and coffee and slices of cold ham and halves of hard-boiled eggs … For some time the talk rambled over presentation of ancient buildings … At this point a signed photograph of the Führer was produced, in a case, and handed by him to L.G. who responded with the hope that Hitler would not object to share a table in L.G.’s house with photographs of Foch and President Wilson. From this point on the talk became more serious and impressive … Hitler spoke with a grave and sincere animation. Germany had lost the war [First World War], that had happened to nations before … It was realized in Germany that if the war was won by the Allies, it was not due to the soldiers but to one great statesman – Lloyd George … Lloyd George, speaking with a tear in his throat, was deeply touched by the personal tribute of the Führer and was proud to hear it paid to him by the greatest German of the age …’ Thomas Jones, A Diary with Letters, 1931–1950 (1954), pp. 248-52.

Feeling apprehensive I remarked:-”I feel I shall not return this time” “come come” he said - “Your Guardian Angel will still look after you” He then gave me a gentle pat. “But who is going to be my pilot?”- I asked. “Cresswell the new fellow” he answered. I shook hands with him and rushed off to the waiting machine. Over the Lines a number of enemy Fokker machines swooped out of the sun upon four “R.E.8.” machines - The air was full of wings and bullets, when my machine gave a lurch, I turned my head to my pilot , he had slumped over the controls - mortally wounded. Next I had a gun-shot wound to the head. The machine went into a spin and finally crashed upon some trees near Le Cateau - I can faintly remember being lowered to the ground, then passed out.”Lieutenant Ralph Silk was taken prisoner of war and Cresswell is commemorated on the Arras Memorial, France.

(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.
