Ww2 RAF bomber aircraft, aircrew escape axe. Nicely air ministry marked escape axe as fitted to RAF aircraft. These axes were used by aircrew incase their aircraft crashed and they were trapped inside. The thin outer skin of the aircraft would be easily cut using one of these axes. This example is an air ministry marked example with a lovely early style crown and A. It is also stamped with stores reference number 27N/1. The metal components have light pitting but no major damage and could be cleaned slightly. The hard rubber handle shows wear but is in good condition with patent number still visible. These axes have become very popular and sought after, due to a recent feature on the BBC antiques roadshow. They make a lovely display piece and are perfect for a RAF collection, musuem display or reinactor use. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me and I’ll try my best to help out.
