UNFORTUNATELY the ENTIRE CREW of this ill-fated aircraft PERISHED tragically when their 4000 Lb. bomb, (Still aboard the aircraft when they went down into trees) KILLING ALL ABOARD :-(

This is confirmed in the history provided by the UK Bomber Museum who excavated this relic, which was sold-off many years ago to raise funds for their (free-admission) Bomber Museum

This is one of two different provenanced item listings from WW2 Royal Air Force Bomber crashes

Each has a detailed history provided by an Aircraft Museum that sold these of many years ago as a fund raiser

I do not know exactly WHAT the "parts" are
But each was accompanied by a .50 Caliber expended shell casing that has also clearly suffered crash trauma and I assume that these were removed from the same wreck

The Mk. VII and late Mk. X Lancasters used the heavier, electrically-controlled Martin 250 CE 23A turret equipped with two .50 inch machine guns which was mounted further forward to preserve the aircraft's longitudinal balance, and because it had an internal mechanism to prevent firing on the aircraft itself, it did not require a coaming

The written history ("provenance") is included along with the airplane parts shown

These have been glued onto recycled wooden bases for display purposes, I do not think that the wooden parts were removed from the wrecks, likely just an economic "mount" made as a fund raiser for the Air Force Bomber memorial Museum

UNIQUE ITEMS that I brought back from the UK last year VERY LIKELY the only such examples here in New Zealand

NO RESERVE so you can decide their value :-)

I do guarantee that these items are 100% GENUINE and exactly as-described

My guarantee is good for life and includes the cost of postage BOTH WAYS

The "for life" part ?? means that if you are already dead, it is too late to ask for a refund

I always COMBINE POSTAGE on all purchases and try to save YOU $$$$ om postage
