December 2018  Highlights

 

British Medals & Militaria highlights this month include three diverse- and collectible pieces; a Napoleonic period Officers flintlock pistol, a rare 1943 dated Longines RAF 6B/159 watch, lastly a grouping of medals to RAF Pilot Officer Eric Thomas Watkin. He was killed in action during September 1940.

 

 

The Napoleonic period officers flintlock pistol was made by the well known firm of Thomas Barnett. This flintlock is a good quality military standard piece, typical of the type privately purchased by officers for campaign use. This is a wonderful un-cleaned piece, with a beautiful patina much sought after by collectors.

 

 

A fresh-to-market 1943 dated  Longines RAF ‘6B/159 watch, complete with its original back-plate designations. Today, a  wartime dated Longines RAF 6B/159 watch remains one of the must-haves by military watch collectors. .

.

 

Lastly, an Air Crew Europe group of medals awarded posthumously to Pilot Officer Eric Thomas Watkin. Flying a Hampden aircraft with 106 Squadron during September 1940, Watkin and his crew were shot down by German Flak, and all four crew members killed. They were on a mission flying over the Elbe Estuary when they were shot down.
