New rare signed books added to the book page 9th December 2016


Dear Collectors,

We have had a busy couple of months with the Battle of Britain Fighter Association and the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust.
TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall held an afternoon tea at Clarence House along with Four of ‘the Few’ and we were truly honoured to attend; a very gratifying afternoon.

Later on in the month we then attended the Battle of Britain Service at Westminster Abbey, finally in October we organized the Auction items for the ‘End of the Battle Gala Dinner‘ with the patron Prince Michael of Kent and one of ‘The Few’, sadly there seems to be less and less, but we still managed to raise £20,000.

Now as Christmas is fast approaching we would like to invite you to our studio for mulled wine and a mince pie, but please be quick as the diary is filling fast, December the 3rd and 4th are fully booked and other dates are filling up fast, we try to spend time with each of our collectors, therefore there are not many spaces up for grabs.

Why not incorporate a visit for lunch to our local pub ‘The Plough, at Upper Dicker’, booking is advisable, we are so lucky to have the Sussex downs and Seven Sisters very close by.

So place your orders for Christmas now to avoid the December rush and as our items are unique and many are one offs a deposit will secure any item you wish, it can either be sent or we can put it to one side for you to pick up.

Wishing you a very happy Christmas and thank you for your continued support.

We are continuously supporting the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust and therefore not always in the office so please call me on 07860 92 92 95 if you can’t get a reply from the office phone.

With warm regards
Colin & Rose

Pulling Together - Summer 1940 by Robin Smith

Pulling Together - Summer 1940
By
Robin Smith

Peeling off from the intense dogfight over the English Channel, the two Spitfires low on fuel, head back to their Airfield, to re-arm and refuel so they can rejoin the fray.
Looking down the pilots spot the women’s land army helping the local farmer gathering the crops,
with the girls waving frantically the Spitfires waggle their wings in support and go their separate ways.
By the end of the summer, the Luftwaffe would be beaten with the combined efforts of all who defended this land.
