F.E. Becker & Co London were barometer and scientific instrument makers circa 1914. This is an original Royal Flying Corps Pilot’s Wrist Altimeter by F.E. Becker & Co London. It is in excellent untouched original condition, with a fine patina gained over a hundred years. It is particularly rare due to the fact that it has the Royal Flying Corps mark on the dial (Capital A Over Broad Arrow) other similar instruments were often a ‘private purchase’ but this altimeter is a correct RFC item. The tan leather strap is also in excellent condition. The strap is oversized to enable the altimeter to be worn over gauntlets, or the sleeve of a flying coat and has its original brass buckle.

**RARE**WW2 1943 RAF Royal Air Force Bakelite War Savings Campaign Plaque By De La Rue Plastics. Sn 19626 - 19626
During WW2 once local councils had reached certain savings targets to support the war effort these plaques were presented and displayed in the Town Hall or similar places. Army plaques were also presented but the R.A.F. Wings For Victory examples are much rarer to find as the savings targets took much longer to achieve. (A WW2 army war savings plaque is available separately on this website Sn 4785). This WW2 dated RAF example is made of ivory hue Bakelite. It measures 23” x 14” x ½” . It has a large panel depicting a naked warrior with sword in hand about to slay a triple headed serpent. The R.A.F. motto 'Per Ardua Ad Astra' is along the top edge and at the bottom text reads ' War Savings Campaign 1943 - Presented By The Air Ministry In Recognition Of Successful Achievement In Wings For Victory Week'. Beneath that are some RAF pilot's wings. The rear of the plaque has cast manufacturer detail in small lettering De La Rue Plastics. The bottom edge of one corner has an old small stable chip only visible on close inspection. The rear of the plaque is mounted with cord for wall hanging. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 19626

1950’s RAF-issue Type –G sunglasses and Case. 19640. - 19640
Introduced in the 1950’s, these are very similar to the standard WWII issue Mk.VIII glasses. They are in a blue anodised aluminium case marked with the store reference; 22G/1399 Type G Large. It also carries the War Department's crow's foot symbol. Inside the case is a blue velvet insert, and the name ‘N.A.T.S. T.R.Gregory 23 Cadet’ is on a tag inside of the lid. The glasses themselves have a gold-coloured frame with flat side-arms (to facilitate wearing a gas mask?) and the ear-pieces are of a very flexible, sprung design that hooks all the way around the ear, so they are tightly-retained during flight. The lenses are glass and have no scratches or defects that I can see, and overall, they are in great condition, considering their age. The case, as you would expect, has some scratches and the edge of the lining is coming loose, but is also in good condition. A great piece of history for the enthusiast’s collection. The price includes UK delivery. 19640. (Handcuffs)
