Original British WWI A.R.P Warden Wood Gas Rattle Marked by W. Clements & Son MISC 859. - MISC 859
When gas was introduced onto the battlefield in 1915 (at the battle of Ypres, Belgium), it was common to use large cylinders that would send billowing clouds of gasses like Xylyl bromide and chlorine towards the enemy lines. Soldiers developed several ways to warn each other of inbound gas. Whenever the hiss of a gas cylinder or explosion of a shell was heard, a lookout would yell “gas!” to everyone in earshot. To communicate the warning up and down the lines, everything from church bells to air horns was used. Eventually, the men found that klaxon horns and wooden alarm rattles worked best. Alarm rattles were preferable because they were lightweight, easy to carry, and had a simple design. The rattle worked by whirling the device overhead, which caused a loud whirring sound. The gas alarm rattle was made primarily of wood. These alarms sometimes went missing in the trenches, where dry kindling for cooking fires was in short supply. The gas alarm rattle was sometimes referred to as a ‘Policeman’s rattle’ because they were similar to those used by civilian police. Made from hardwood and 27cm in length and 3 ½ cm thick with a revolving handle attached to a cog that catches two thin pieces of wood when spun, which in turn makes the rattle noise. This rattle is in remarkably good condition for its age, which has been saved from the trenches of WWI (and the cooks’ fire). The price includes UK delivery. MISC 859. (Top shelf-back)

SOLD SOLD (17/12) Framed Display Board of Fifty Two Original Hand Tied Salmon Flies – Signed – Fly Dressing by A.H. Claydon – Redhill 2001. 20322. - 20322
Fly fishing is an angling method that uses a light-weight lure called an artificial fly to catch fish. The fly is cast using a fly rod, reel, and specialized weighted line. The light weight requires casting techniques significantly different from other forms of casting. The flies may resemble natural invertebrates, bait-fish, or other food organisms. The dark wood frame measures 75x60cm and envelopes a stunningly colourful display of 52 intricately hand tied Salmon flies, each named in copperplate writing with names such as; Green Highlander, Bloody Butcher, Cardinal, Appetiser and Walkers Longhorns amongst many others measuring between 1 and 4cm in length. This superb display piece would be an ideal acquisition for the fly fisherman or woman, or a collector of Artisan items. The photographs don’t do the vibrant colours of the flies justice due to the glare on the glass. The display is ready to hang and the price includes UK delivery. 20322.
