Fairey Swordfish Enthusiasts Collection
Sale price £44.95 Regular price
We've put together a package for all lovers of the Fairey Swordfish. Two books (Achtung Swordfish and War in a Stringbag) are wonderfully evocative descriptions of young men fighting a hard war in an antiquated (but much loved) aircraft and often in appalling conditions. The detailed die cast model is of our own W5856 who saw active service in the Mediterranean and is looking forward to displaying again next season (your purchases will contribute to keeping her flying). Stanley BRand, the author of Achtung! Swordfish! actually pranged W5856 in 1944. This collection will also come with a canvas swatch from a Swordfish signed by the late Lt Cdr Bruce Vibert who flew Swordfish from the escort carrier HMS Fencer.
