    Default My HMS Ajax Collection Including Bell and POW Art

    This is my HMS Ajax ( No7) collection, I live I Ajax Ontario and the Town was named after the Ship, all the street names are named after the Sailors, and when they ran out of their names, the streets were named after the Sailors of the other 2 Ships that were with Ajax when they went after the Graf Spee.
    The best piece is the ships bell from the Officers Mess, the fellow that owned it would not sell it to an "American" even after I expolained I was Canadian and that the Town was named after the Ship, so a friend in Wales made the deal ( took a couple of months), after he received the bell he emailed the past owner and explained he WAS American, ex US Navy, and that the bell was going to Canada!
    The next interesting item is the German POW made HMS Ajax in a Bottle. German POWs made many different ships in the bottle to trade of items they wanted, then there is an old unbuilt model, a napkin ring made from the wood on the deck as well as a Cap.
    I am always looking for HMS Ajax ( No 7) items

    Very unusual and rare group, the bell must be a real prize item in your collection.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
