*Original 1914-1918* Large Framed Hand Embroidered ‘Royal Flying Corps’ (RFC) Silk Wings & Motto. 20014:1. - 20014:1
The Royal Flying Corps (RFC) was the air arm of the British Army before and during the First World War until it merged with the Royal Naval Air Service on 1 April 1918 to form the Royal Air Force. During the early part of the war, the RFC supported the British Army by artillery co-operation and photographic reconnaissance. This work gradually led RFC pilots into aerial battles with German pilots and later in the war included the strafing of enemy infantry and emplacements, the bombing of German military airfields and later the strategic bombing of German industrial and transport facilities. For many returned airmen, learning a new skill whilst convalescing provided a lifeline. Embroidery was a perfect craft for many as it offered a quiet, portable and intimate activity which did not require standing or much movement and could be undertaken in a group. Imagine how difficult it must have been for many of these men, not only were they coming to terms with their experiences and injuries, they also found themselves incapacitated or heavily reliant on others for basic needs. Embroidery or ‘fancy work’ was usually women’s work, and despite the societal chaos created by the conflict, this was yet another thing that had to be overcome. This fine original example measures; 87 x 52 ½ cm and is encased in a glazed medium Oak frame with a gold coloured border. The Royal Flying Corps wings are in two tone silk below crown. The RFC motto is beneath; ‘Per Ardua Ad Astra’ (through adversity to the stars). A beautiful piece of history for the collector or ex-serviceman *the camera flash is shown on the glass in picture 1*. The price includes UK delivery. 20014:1.

*As Found* WW1 1915 Dated German Army Entrenching Spade Tool / Trench Fighting Weapon With 1916 Leather Carrier / Frog. 20028. - 20028
During World War I entrenching tools became extremely important with the introduction of trench warfare. Entrenching tools designed for the individual infantryman soon appeared with short straight handles, T-handles, D-handles, and other designs. As well as digging defensive fighting positions, entrenching tools were used for digging latrines and graves. During World War I, the entrenching spade was also pressed into service as a melee weapon. In the close confines of a trench, rifles and fixed bayonets were often too long for effective use, and entrenching tools were often used as auxiliary arms for close-quarter fighting. From 1915, soldiers on both sides routinely sharpened the edges of entrenching shovels for use as weapons. A copy of a contemporary image of one of these trench tools being used by a German soldier in the field is illustrated in image 1. This is an original WW1 dated Imperial German Army Entrenching Spade Tool / Trench Fighting Weapon in excellent condition. The spade measures 51 cm overall length.

Colonel William Willoughby Cole Verner patented several marching Compass designs.

Model numbers were issued to his compasses starting with a Verner's Pattern V with developments through to the VII, VIII and the IX of WW2. Verner's Pattern compasses are both incredibly popular with collectors as well being a compass that can still be practically and easily used today. The most common models are the Verner's Pattern VII and Verner's Pattern VIII which were mainly used during WW1. Their basic construction is a prismatic dry card compass with a both a momentary bearing lock and transit lock. This is an excellent original example of the MK IX. It is fully functioning. It has a brass case and is mounted with lanyard ring. The glass face and numbered brass outer ring are perfectly intact. The rear is stamped 'J.M. Glauser London – No B6130 MK IX 1939’.
