RAF Benevolent Fund Bell
RAF Benevolent Fund Bell.
This is a hand-bell, made by the Buckinghamshire Die-Casting Co. of Burnham, Bucks using aluminium alloy from German aircraft destroyed during World War II. It bears the heads of Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin in low relief. The handle bears a large 'V', again in low relief, on either side. Sale proceeds went to the RAF Benevolent Fund. This type is one of the scarcer productions, as there is no script around the rim as normally found. The internal casing has a rare original label, which I have not encountered before.
