    Default RAF.RFC "trench art"

    Thought members may be interested to see these items, and any comments are welcomed:
    1) Propellor photo frame with RFC cap badge, and image of airman standing in front of what I believe is an Avro 504
    2) Shoehorn engraved with RAF crest and "France 1918"
    3) Trinket boxes, reputedly made from propellor blades on board carrier HMS Glorious in Malta 1930s .
    4) Walking stick engraved with RFC crest, "Royal Rlying Corps", and " Lt A.H. Kienz". Appears to be made from billiard cue with a .303 bullet tip. Kienz, later Flight Officer, previously 2/9 Hampshire Regt. served in 55 & 8 (Iraq) squadron, and changed his name post war to Klynes. Died 1924
