HUNGERFORD ARCADE AND THE WWII SPITFIRE


As you will all know, here at Hungerford Arcade, we are in a very privileged position when it comes to the 'weird and the wonderful!  Many amazing things have been made from the remnants of war, most popular for these were from shell casings.  Here, we have a most unusual and beautifully made ring made from a Spitfire windscreen!

"I say old chap, what will they think of next!"

Was this ring a 'one off', made during WWII from a crashed or damaged Spitfire by a romantic gentleman for his sweetheart?  I like to think so. 

As well as the ring, I have also included some pictures of the Spitfire and a Supermarine Spitfire.
