This section contains 100% genuine relics of the great aerial conflict Second World War including the Battle of Britain. We have added this section due to numerous enquires for this sort of personal history. All items will have been legally recovered and supported with authentification. Many parts listed in other sections of the site can be linked to the correct aircraft types. The following pieces listed on these pages are from aircraft crash sites and details of the, Squadron, Pilot ,exact date, combat details, aircraft type, and serial number. In most cases if not already supplied it will be possible for a small fee to receive copies of the Squadron Operational record book and official combat reports which are available from the record office at Kew. We have found that its allot more economical to employ the services of a professional researcher. Its costs around £50 to locate and take copies of original documents. Obviously these are crash relics and will not be in a usable condition, its the history that counts and it is possible for example to build up a collection of a Battle of Britain items from start of the battle until the end . Spitfire Spares does not support the recovery of wreckage from anything classified as a War grave or any recovery not fully compliant with the current legislation. Respect for the Brave aircrew is paramount and we will not offer or purchase any personal items recovered from aircrew killed in action serving their Country.

 Me110 Radiator Grill (pg 3 relic nos 13)

This is the Radiator Grill From a Me110 recovered form the Arnhem area

Me110's were used extensively by the Luftwaffe in Arnhem as Night fighters

With the failure of the Messerschmitt Me 210 series, and a shortage of Ju 88 airframes, the Luftwaffe was forced to retain the Bf 110 in front-live service primarily as a night-fighter, and in 1942 the Daimler Benz DB 605B-1 engine was installed to produce the Bf 110G series. The definitive Messerschmitt Bf 110G-4, bore the brunt of Luftflotte Reich's night-fighter commitment in late 1943. During 1943, upward-firing cannon were introduced to the night-fighting Bf 110s so that the night-fighter merely had to keep station below the target and open fire. Influenced by the success of a special Do 217J (which had upward-firing cannon), an armourer from lI/NJG 5, Oberfeldwebel Mahle, amounted two redundant MG FFs in a Bf 110 in a home-made upward-firing mounting. A kill was achieved using the new guns within days, and an official version of the modification, with twin 30-mm MK 108 cannon, was installed in the aft cockpit to fire at an angle of 60-70° from the horizontal.

B-26 Undercarriage Relic (pg 3 relic nos 20)

In September 1944 the Allies launched Operation Market Garden. The road bridge across the Lower Rhine should have been the final objective of the operation, and its capture was tasked to the British 1st Airborne Division. Unexpected German resistance in Arnhem meant that only a small force of some 740 men were able to reach the northern end of the bridge, commanded by Lt-Colonel John Frost. On the night of the 17 September the British attempted to take the southern end of the bridge, using a flame thrower to destroy German positions in the bridge's towers. This accidentally ignited an ammunition store and the fresh paint on the bridge caught fire, illuminating the area for most of the night and forcing the British to abandon their attempt.

The superior German forces in Arnhem eventually overwhelmed Frost's men, although this took several days. They had however succeeded in closing the bridge to German armour for some four days, twice as long as a whole division was expected to hold the bridge. The rest of the division held out at nearby Oosterbeek until 25 September before being evacuated across the river.

Although the bridge survived the battle, it was bombed and destroyed by B-26 Marauders of the 344th Bomb Group on 7 October 1944 to prevent the Germans from using it to send reinforcements south of the river.
