  9. Just found this part in collection, I don't know what it is or what it did all I can say is it came out of the same Heinkel.
  10. Thought I would post a picture of some of my aircraft relics. Almost all in the picture are from Battle of Briton and the Blitz and have parts to about 20 types of aircraft.
  11. Hi Ross The hydraulic ram was part of the HEINKEL HE-111 11/KG4 on 19/6/40. The only other information I have is that it was shot down by f/l Duke-Woolley. In the picture is the paperwork that came with the part. As you say what a waste to blow it up. Regards Nelson
  12. Heinkel He-111 8747. This aircraft was shot down by a Blenheim of 23 sqdn and was forced to ditch just off shore at Norfolk. All of the crew was captured. The wreck remained off shore until 1969 when it was blown up as it was considered a hazard to navigation. In the picture you can see the hydraulic ram for the tailwheel.
  13. Two relics from aircraft Messerschmitt Bf-110c-4 3113. This aircraft was shot down on the 3rd September 1940 and crashed near Rayleigh Essex. The crew baled out and were captured. When the crash site was excavated it was dug in a marsh down to a depth of 35 feet revealing both engines, all six propellers and many other items. In the pictures you can see part of a camshaft and a engine fuel injection pump drive gear.
  14. The 1885 cavalry troopers sword has a steel guard pierced with a Maltese cross and twin grip plates with five studs in each. There will be inspection marks on the blade and the scabbard is made of steel. The sword in the picture has issue marks for 1886,1889,1890 and1900. There are also war department marks and a X that indicated that the sword has undergone bending tests. The maker of this sword is Mole. This sword was issued to the 112th coy Middlesex Imperial Yeomanry in 1900 and in 1901 the 112th was sent to South Africa during the boar war under the command of Colonel R.B.Firman.
