Something I wanted back around the 1960's, 70's. Used to see them in schoolfriend houses and there were a fair few around at antique fairs, I can't remember what they cost back then but it wasn't a lot, just that badges took priority when it came to spending my money.
Pity I never got one and wasted my money on things like the 92nd Highlanders crossbelt fake that was also all over the shop back then.

That’s neat and an excellent use of ex-Luftwaffe resources!

Cheers……John

...though there is some debate whether any German aircraft actually went into the production of these bells when they were made in 1945 - rather some of the millions of tons of aluminium saucepans laying around!

...or the school gates from my Dad's public school, Highgate School, but probably more likely the pots from the kitchen!

I attended Highgate! Though the gates I believe remained as they were memorial gates installed after WW1 in memory of the old boys who died in the conflict.
