ROYAL NAVAL WOODEN NAPKIN HOLDER

DESCRIPTION -- Very early item from the Royal Navy which is a wooden napkin holder which is dated circa 1930's/40's and a very rare find.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Good

HISTORY -- The official history of the Royal Navy began with the formal establishment of the Royal Navy as the national naval force of the Kingdom of England in 1660, following the Restoration of King Charles II to the throne. However, for more than a thousand years before that there had been English naval forces varying in type and organization. In 1707 it became the naval force of the Kingdom of Great Britain after the Union between England and Scotland which merged the English navy with the much smaller Royal Scots Navy, although the two had begun operating together from the time of the Union of the Crowns in 1603.

SMALL SCALE MODEL OF THE INFAMOUS GERMAN NAVAL VESSEL THE BISMARCK

DESCRIPTION -- Small scale model of the very infamous German Naval vessel the Bismarck which is in a great condition and the size is 7" (16cm) long (click on the picture for a close up of the model).
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- The Bismarck, probably Germany's most famous battleship in World War Two, was sunk on May 27th 1941. The Bismarck had already sunk HMS Hood before being sunk herself. For many, the end of the Hood and Bismarck symbolised the end of the time when battleships were the dominant force in naval warfare, to be replaced by submarines and aircraft carriers and the advantages these ships gave to naval commanders.
