The airship was built by Vickers Armstrongs and made it’s first flight in 1929. It made a series of trial flights and flew the Atlantic in August 1930. After the crash of the R101 the R100 was dismantled - our R100 fabric was stamped on the rear as above. The keyring has a piece of fabric encapsulated into its body. The ring itself is sterling silver and the body is metal.

Spitfire keyring 2

An historic keyring crafted out of the armoured plating of a Spitfire from the Battle of Britain. RAF Spitfire number P9469 of 222 Squadron was shot down at 4.50 pm on the 7th October 1940.

It’s has beautiful patterns and pitting which makes every keyring unique. it’s rusty as you would expect and we have treated the rust to contain it and preserve it’s character.

Spitfire piece keyring 233

This keyring has a piece of Spitfire encapsulated in it’s body. The keyring is plain metal with an acrylic cover over the Spitfire relic metal. It’s a battered piece of metal which we have knocked flat and cut out. We have lightly cleaned it so that it preserves the weathering and some of the paint. It’s only roughly shaped to fit the cavity because of the curves and distortions of the metal.. Each keyring is different and unique.

Hurricane place metal

The metal is from the relics of RAF Spitfire X4418 which was shot down by friendly fire on the 15th October 1940 and which crashed at Wybornes Farm at High Halstow.

It comes in a plain gift box and the price includes postage within the UK. it comes with a letter on handmade paper describing the piece. It’s 35
