RAF Operations Room Raid Block.

Incredibly scarce Raid Block used in RAF filter and sector Ops rooms during the Battle of Britain and later to display important information relating to an enemy raid. When details of aircraft were received at Group Filter room level it was interpreted on a map table with the raid block normally positioned at the head of the plotting path and providing information such as strength, height and whether the aircraft were 'hostile', friendly or unknown. Used in conjunction with the Sector clock this gave RAF controllers the ability to have access to up to date information to enable them to provide an appropriate response. More information of how this system work was contained in the secret RAF Air Defence Pamphlet No.4, extracts of which are shown in the images. Scarce item.

Japanese M1899 Type 32 Cavalry Sabre.

The Japanese Type 32 Saber was a government-issued cavalry sword. It was first issued in 1889 and would be manufactured until the end of WWII. The blade is katana-like in styling, though it has the proportions of a saber and was built in two lengths. This example, a second pattern ‘Otsu,’ was issued to army NCOs and and has a blade length of around 770mm with the leather finger loop indicating earlier manufacture. Numbered to the ricasso with a matching number to the scabbard drag. In good, used condition with a matching toned appearance overall with some light staining, but no pitting to the blade. Good example.
