This is one very, very rare Creagh Osborne Compass. My research has come up with Aeronautical & Maritime use. I also read of these being used in the very first British Army Tanks. Although how a magnetic compass would work inside a metal tank?

Replica (Not Fake) 1920-1924 Canadian Air Force Pilot Wing - CAF Buttons in an original 'SCULLY' Box.

This early Canadian Air Force Wing was sold to me as an original wing, but after a few authentication enquiries I was informed it to be a "Replica"....notice I use the word "Replica" and not "Fake".

This Wing was never made to deceive. It is thought this Wing is one of a small number made in the 1960's for presentation/wear by early Canadian Air Force Pilots of the 20th Century. It is therefore a very rare Pilot Wing in its own right.

Multi-piece made, it replicates superbly the Pilot Wing of the 1920-1924 Canadian Air Force. I believe the Wing and CAF lettering to be in silver, and the Maple Leaf looks to have a copper finish.

I understand this replica Wing was presented to the CAF Veterans along with with a pair of original CAF buttons, so I have displayed this Wing in a similar fashion. I've even shown them in an original William Scully box.

Even though this is a replica, it's a rarity in its own right. Indeed I've never seen another example.

Group Captain J A Sproule DFC RCAF

The following pictures show Group Captain J A Sproule DFC RCAF as he escorts Prince Phillip on a Royal visit to CJATC Rivers in October, 1954.

Pathe News clips can also be seen of GC Sproule on this link;

This is the self same young Pilot Officer who flew his Armstrong Whitley over Germany on the very first RAF Raid of WWII.

So much more has been written about this extraordinary Gentleman. Indeed his own words can be found in his own publication; "437 Squadron History".
It's definitely worth researching deeper, an amazing individual.
