Battle of France Hurricane escape door and Original Pilots Log book (pg1 air)

This is one of  best pieces in my collection. It is from one of the first L series production Hurricanes.  And one of the first Hurricanes to see combat and a victory in France .

It is a superb piece of historic aviation and probably the most substantial, original, complete surviving piece of one of the very earliest Hurricanes and in that respect is totally unique.

There is one surviving original image of  L 1910 fitted with a single blade Watts propeller which will be sent to the purchaser I have been asked not to publish this picture and the details of the image are as follows.

It depicts L1910 SD-N at RAF Filton in September 1939, just after the squadron was mobilised. The pilots are (left to right) Fg Off Michael Smith (shot down and killed, Mezieres, France on 12 May 1940) and Fg Off Derrick Pickup (shot down the squadron's first enemy aircraft on 10 May 1940).

Combat report Pt Off KNT Lee flying L 1910

"Took off at 18.00 hrs to take over from French fighters intercepting Do17s of KG3, escorted by Bf110s of 1/ZG2. 'B' Flight sent two sections; the first section led by Fg Off Malfroy and comprising Pt Off Lee and Fg Off Smith. Pt Off Kenneth Lee sighted a Do17 to the south of Sedan:

We were patrolling south of Sedan at 18,000 feet, maintaining radio silence as ordered, when I spotted bomb bursts on the ground and traced their origin to four Dornier 17 below us. So I flew up in front of the Vic, pointed down and peeled off for the attack.

The Germans saw me coming and and changed formation. I turned astern of the formation, going through the drill during the dive lower seat, tighten belt, switch on firing button and set wing span and range on the reflector sight. Now nicely on track and closing fast, I looked either side of me for the rest of the Flight, who should have been formating on me for the 'Number One Attack' not a soul to be seen!

The section had thought that my frantic wing waggling was my indication of an early return to base with engine trouble! By now fully committed, I had to continue alone. Although I got one, confirmed by the French, and another smoking, they managed 37 hits on me hitting the engine bearers and putting out the undercarriage safety light. I was very disorientated and had to land on a French airstrip, recently bombed and still smoking to ask the way back to base."

Lee's aircraft was sent to Aircraft Depot No.21 at Nantes for repair on 28 May 1940.

Lee's victims included Do17 of 4/KG3, which crashed near Ashfield, NE of Bitburg; pilot, Oblt Richard Martin. Another Do17 of Stab II/ KG 3 was damaged.

This is a picture of the first production Hurricane L1669

I have now made a quite incredible find,  the original Pilots flying Log book of Seymour Williams who actually flew Hurricane  L 1910 which is clearly recorded in His log book.

Samples from the log book click on the picture's to enlarge them.

Click on the picture to enlarge

The log book is a historically important document and covers his flying career from training on the 3-7-1936. it contains His first solo flight. It lists all the various stages of flying training including cross country, night flying and air gunnery training. It covers his deployment to 501 Squadron which was at the time a Bomber Squadron , his conversion to Hurricanes, ferrying Hurricanes to France, 501 Squadrons deployment to France during which time it records combat and and Kills. His return from France on the 12th June at 17.15 from Nantes to Hendon shortly after which he joined an Operational training Unit preparing Pilots for the Battle of Britain.

The Log book is also full of signatures of other RAF officers including the C/O of 501 Squadron,  and Flight commanders of 501 ect ect, it lists trip's to Castle Bromwich and numerous other events surrounding the operational life of an RAF officer in the 1930's.

Together these items are a superb and unique collection giving a full insight into the build up to WWII and the introduction of the RAF's first modern fighters of the day together with a piece of hardware from one of the first Hurricanes to see combat and destroy an enemy aircraft in France

Included in the sale are the escape door from L 1910, the Log Book of Seymour Williams and a reproduction hard copy of the Operational record book of 501 Squadron.

Hurricane Radiator Cowling (pg1 air)

Feast your eyes a quite unique and superbly rare item. The Radiator cowling as fitted to Hurricanes, an original item with its flap still attached. As these Cowlings are slung low under the aircraft they are vulnerable and very rarely survive any belly landing or undercarriage failure completely destroys them. This one is in good original static condition.

You can see the radiator cowling clearly on the underside of the Hurricane above.

Hurricane centre section (pg1 air)

Available as a result of the break up of our Hurricane project is a complete centre section including frame  cowlings and undercarriage attachments new made from steel for a static Hurricane project. It is extremely strong and was made to cope with a running Merlin. This piece is the heart of the Hurricane, the original, seen under is an extremely complicated piece made from multi sided tubing that has to be made specially manufactured at huge cost. This is a unique piece for any Static Hurricane project and something which took well over 100 hours to construct using original drawings. The complicated original construction was replaced with tubular and box section steel and is very close in appearance to the original. The dimensions are as original. The cowlings shown are included. This will have to be collected or we can deliver for a cost of 1 per mile in the UK. To ship oversees will be expensive and I would suggest you get a shipping quote before purchase. I would estimate its weight at around 250 to 350 Kgs.

Battle of Britain Original Browning Mk II 303 machine gun 1(pg4 arm)

If you are a Battle of Britain or Gun collector this has to be the ultimate piece for you. This Browning .303 "381383"  "MK II* B.81.383 B" was made by BSA for a contract in 1939. A contact of mine has a .303 from the same contract which was fitted to Hurricane Mk1 R4215 which crashed during the B of B whilst being flown by F/O M D Doulton, 601 Sqn.

Click on the picture to enlarge

Therefore as it came from the same contract it was almost certainly supplied to Hawker for  installation in a Hurricane. Browning's were is short supply in 1939 so its almost a certainly that this was fitted into an aircraft that saw action during the Battle, what is a certainty is that guns from the same contract were fitted to Hurricanes that fought in the Battle..
 

This is fully deactivated Mk II Browning 303 machine gun with deact certificate which can be legally owned by anyone in the UK without a licence. For overseas buyers you will have to check the regulations for your country and possibly arrange an import licence so contact me before buying. This gun is in superb condition.

The Spitfire MK I was originally armed with eight .303 in Browning machine guns, each with 300 rounds. This type of wing was officially designated as the a wing on 15 March 1940, to distinguish between machine gun armed Spitfires and cannon armed aircraft. The vast majority of Spitfires in use during the Battle of Britain were armed with machine guns.

Please Note that this gun is deactivated and may be missing internal components

Hurricane Aileron Control drum (Pg1 cont)

Click on the picture to enlarge

This is an Aileron control drum  which attaches to the control column of the Hurricane. This piece was imported from the Archangel district of Russia. It has been lying on the surface of a Russian forest for 70 years but is in remarkably good condition. It does have some damage and corrosion as would be expected but is complete. Some 3000 Hurricanes were sent to Russia from Britain during WWII and saw some of the most brutal fighting of the war as the Germans embarked on a war of annihilation against Russia.

Shown above a Mk IIa Hurricane in Russian markings equipped with two SkVas 20mm gun and two UBT 12.7mm machine guns instead of the original .303 calibre weapons. Some Hurricanes used by the VVS had RS-82 air to air rockets installed under the wings (three per wing) and some others sported locally produced bomb racks. Many Hurricanes were used as tactical reconnaissance aircraft as this one used by 14th ORAE squadron during winter 1942-1943 near Moscow.

Complete original Hurricane control Column (pg1 cont)

This a superb complete Hurricane control column in fully functional condition although it would need inspection and certification to fly again. The label on the base says it was taken from Hurricane Z 5145 FN-D  331 Squadron crashed 27th August 1941 Pilot Jens Muller. I have no way of authenticating this and do not guarantee this provenance, the information was attached to the base when I bought the column. Its likely that only some parts of this column may have been recovered form from the crash site as this column would not survive in this condition after a crash. There is some information about this crash on this link

The brackets which hold this to the airframe are very delicate and one has been snapped off, it needs to be slid over the tube any attempt to open up the bracket will result in the lug breaking off.

This is superb piece and almost certainly one of a kind. This type of armoured windshield located outside the windscreen, was only used by the British and German Fighters before WWII.

This example is an experimental installation for a Hurricane MK I. I have drawn in a transparent paper, in red colour, the contour of the piece over a drawing of a Hurricane windscreen as an illustration. Apparently the set was completed with a curve piece made out of transparent Plexiglas, which most probable shape followed the contour drawn inn green.

 Original Hurricane undercarriage indicator in good condition fitted to early Hurricanes. This gauge is extremely rare and much harder to find than original Spitfire indicators. Seen below in situ top left of the instrument panel. This round style of U/C indicator is used in a great many aircraft types but the face with the vertical green lenses was only use in Hurricanes.

Original Lancaster undercarriage indicator  (Page16 Undercarriage indicators 5)

This is an original Lancaster undercarriage indicator in superb condition and was fitted to the main instrument panel. This model also appears to be fitted to later Hurricanes being very similar in design the green lenses are slightly off the vertical. To my Knowledge it was used exclusively in these two aircraft.

Hawker Hurricane panel plan(pg21 instruments)

He we have a dimensional plan for the Hawker Hurricane main instrument panel. IT is NOT 1;1 scale but has all the dimensions you need to built the full size article. Ata guess I would say the plan is 1/2 scale. Hurricanes are one of the hardest aircraft to get drawings and its taken allot of searching to obtain this. You will receive good quality readable copy.

Hawker Hurricane rudder pedal assembly Count Manfred Beckett Czernin (pg1 relic)

This rudder pedal assembly was excavated from the crash site of MK I Hurricane V 7500 piloted by  Count Manfred Beckett Czernin which was shot down on the 17th of November 1940 by Germany's top fighter Ace  Adolf Galland. Even more amazing was the pilot of this Hurricane. This German born RAF officer had the most amazing of careers, scoring 7 victories with the RAF he was highly decorated and ended his war time career as an SOE agent fighting behind enemy lines.  Read his full history here link

I have traced this piece from the dig sight and is 100% authentic, details of the dig can be supplied to the purchaser. Mounted on an alloy stand as relics go it does not get any better than this.

Serving with distinction throughout the Battle of Britain, Count Manfred Beckett Czernin's score included 13 confirmed, 2 unconfirmed, 3 probable and 5 damaged. He is depicted here on 25th July 1940, claiming the last of three Messerschmitt Bf.110s that he shot down that day, flying Hurricane V7408 (YB-F) whilst with 17 Sqn. Despite being shot down by Adolf Galland in November, he survived the war and passed away in 1962 having been awarded a DFC, an MC and DSO.

Pilot's oxygen bottle cradle from Hawker Hurricane Z2505 - an important piece of his kit that would have mounted behind the pilot's seat. In relic condition (three bolts are holding it together for the photo where the original rivets have failed) this item could be improved with some TLC and make a fascinating exhibit, especially if you have a bottle to put in it!  Hawker Aircraft stamps are present on the cradle.

Hurricane P2985

The following parts were recovered from the crash site of Hurricane P2985. I can guarantee the provenance of these piece's and will supply the new owner with three pages of A4 listing information of the 303 Squadron Pilot Waclow Lapkowski who was flying this aircraft when he was shot down on the 5th of September 1940. In addition a copy of the combat report is included. I will also supply the history of these piece's since its recovery so it is fully traceable to the dig site.

303 RAF Polish Squadron was the top scoring Squadron of the Battle of Britain and as such these are hugely desirable piece's of History for the Battle of Britain collector.

Waclaw Lapkowski second from right at the time this picture was taken he was Squadron Leader of the famous 303 Squadron.

Born on 6th November 1913, Waclaw Lapkowski was in the Polish Air Force before the war and was serving with its 112 Squadron at the outbreak of war. On 6th September 1939 he shared a He111 and a Do17 with a He111 destroyed on the 9th.

He subsequently made his way to England, details unknown, and joined 303 squadron on the day it was formed at Northolt 2nd August 1940. He claimed a Ju88 destroyed on 5th September. On that day he was himself shot down by a Me109 in combat over Gillingham. He baled out, with a broken leg and burns, landed at Hawkwell and was admitted to Rochford (Southend) Hospital. His Hurricane, P2985, crashed at Bonvill's Farm, North Benfleet.

Awarded the VM (5th Class, gazetted 23rd December 1940) Lapkowski did not return to the squadron until 6th January 1941. He returned from a sweep over France on the 22nd with 25 yards of telephone wire round his engine. Lapkowski was awarded the KW (gazetted 1st April 1941) and was wounded on 13th April 1941 and admitted to hospital. Recovered, on 5th May he took command of 303 Squadron, on 4th June he damaged a Me109, on the 8th he destroyed one, on the 22nd two more, on the 24th another and on the 27th he damaged another.

On 2nd July 941 Lapkowski was leading 303, in Spitfire B8596, flying with the Polish Wing escorting Blenheims to Lille. They were attacked in mid-Channel by fifty Me109s coming down from a higher altitude. Lapkowski was shot down. His body was washed ashore and he is buried in Lombardsidje Communal Cemetery, Belgium.

303 Squadron Pilots with one of their Battle of Britain Hurricanes.

Formed on August 2, 1940 in Northolt, No. 303 Kosciuszko Squadron was the second Polish fighter squadron to be formed on British soil. Its personnel recruited mostly from 111 and 112 Squadrons of the Pursuit Brigade, which had fought with distinction in the Polish campaign of 1939. In spite of some difficulties, mostly stemming from inadequate command of English, conversion to Hurricanes and training in the RAF tactics proceeded smoothly, and a month later the squadron entered the Battle - soon proving to be the hardest-hitting unit in the entire Fighter Command.

Undercarriage tail leg in original condition. With a good clean and some paint should look like new, I do not know what aircraft this belonged to I was told it was for a Hurricane as it came included with our Hurricane project but I do not believe this is the case.
