Today I took delivery of two captains chairs I won at auction. Having looked through the auction catalogue I noticed the characteristic leg design of an Air Ministry pattern on one of the chairs in the listing. I placed my bids over the phone and hurrah I won. Russell my regular courier dropped the chairs off today and upon turning over the one I noticed, with bated breath, to my delight there were the typical markings of the Air Ministry – a small AM and crown logo stamped into the underside of the seat. This one also has the date 1940 stamped in to the wood and the makers signature of … Something something, makers Wycombe. I can’t quite make it out sadly. Interestingly too the chair has roughly painted on it, the words HQ Wing. I wonder which station this was on. If only one knew. Anyway. Here are some photographes of the latest find.
