New Items Keep Coming In

During September the Museum received a valuable batch of WW1 wooden propellers including propellers from a Sopwith Pup, FE2, Sopwith 1 ½ Strutter, and a 4 bladed propeller from an SE5a. This last item has a plaque attached to it dated 1923 and linking it to the famous ace Captain Albert Ball VC, R.A.

From WW2 we have been given a (suitably deactivated!) incendiary bomb which was part of a cluster dropped near Gatwick Airport and an ‘operational’ teddy bear. This bear, who was named Wacker, is dressed in warm knitted clothing and accompanied its owner on more than 50 bombing missions over Germany. He flew inside his owners jacket and has a tiny burned hole in his front where he was hit by a hot shard of anti-aircraft shell on one operation.
