MERLIN Memorabilia

Piston head ashtray and inlet valve


    Battle of Britain commemorative ashtray made from a piston head from a war surplus Merlin engine featuring the RAF crest and engraved:

    “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few”
    Winston Churchill

    Made from a Rolls Royce Merlin engine piston
    as used in the Battle of Britain August-October 1940

      These ashtrays were produced just after the war to raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund and have become very collectable.  This ashtray is in VG condition though it has obviously been used for its designated purpose.  It measures 13 cm in diameter and 2 cm in depth.

    It is 12 cm tall in VG condition with original patina

    These are great pieces for your desk or display cabinet. Very tactile!
