Original British WWI Royal Flying Corps Souvenir Box made from Wooden Propeller Section

Item Description

Original Items: Only One Available. This is a great example of the eventual fate of many o the early wooden propellers used on Aircraft during WWI. This is a very attractive British WWI Royal Flying Corps souvenir keepsake box, made from a hollowed-out section of propeller from near the hub. The laminated wood layers on the sides can still be seen on the sides, as well as from the inside. The top of the box has a mounted Royal Flying Corps R F C cap badge, which has a great look.

The box measures approximately 8 3/4"L x 6 1/2"W x 3 1/4"H, with an interior depth of about 2 1/2". The bottom and top do not look to be made from propeller wood. The bottom of the box is lined with dark brown velvet, and the bottom section is screwed directly into the propeller. The top has been carved to sit securely on the top of the box. 

A great and interesting Royal Flying Corps keepsake box from WWI, ready to sit on your desk and display!

The Royal Flying Corps was Britain's Air Force's title during the First World War. It only became known as the "Royal Air Force" on April 1st, 1918, not long before the war ended on November 11th 1918.
