E-3126  Historic large section of SPAD XIII fabric, taken from the wing of Hockey Hall of Famer and Squadron Commander Captain Hobey Baker. 'Hobey Baker went to the Front as part of the 94th Squadron with Eddie Rickenbacker and Reed Chambers. When an opportunity came for transfer to the 103rd- then operating under French command- he took it. When Charles Biddle returned from the hospital and was given command of 13th P.S. 'Hobey transferred with him and, in September, was appointed C.O. of the 141st, part of 4th Pursuit Group headed by the now Major Biddle.  Baker made the first operational patrol.  Baker had shared one victory while in the 103rd and now, on Oct. 28th he shot down the first one for 141st Squadron. Then on Nov. 5th he and Shelby, Loris Cady, Bryan Hamlin and Paul Chappell shot down a D.F.W. two-seater near the village of St. Benoit. "The outstanding post-Armistice tragedy among Air Service personnel was the death of 'Hobey' Baker on Dec. 21st. He received orders to return to the States, and according to Brown and Dodds, wanted to make a last flight as a test hop in a Squadron SPAD, No. 7, which had carburetor trouble. He took off, revved up to full power and pulled up in a chandelle. Seconds later the engine quit, he tried to turn back to the field, side slipped and crashed to the ground. He died minutes later.

E-2991   Rare and historic section of aircraft from a crashed and marooned US aircraft that went down in Mexico in 1919. The verso written in ink with the text of the last will and testament of two American Pilots Cecil Connolly and Fred Waterhouse, who crashed in the Baja de California, south of San Diego, after a storm, and who survived 17 days without food, only to be picked up and subsequently killed by two Mexican fishermen. The paint on the painted side badly worn, the verso slightly discolored with oil stains to left margin. Together with two identical photographs of the two draped coffins aboard the USS Aaron Ward.

The tale of the tragic death of two American Army flyers, attached to the 9th Aero Squadron, based in San Diego, who whilst on patrol hit a storm and were thrown dramatically off course. They eventually found land and crashed on an open beach at Refugio de Guadelupe, a deserted area on the eastern shore of the Baja de California, south of the Mexican border. With little or no food they survived 17 days waiting on the beach, until they were discovered by two Mexican fishermen, who took them in, fed them, but in some argument between the parties, the flyers were both killed, apparently on September 3rd 1919. The bodies were recovered in October 19th 1919 at Angeles Bay by the US Navy, according to the writer of the text, and brought aboard USS Aaron Ward to be returned to San Diego. A Mexican Judge in Tijuana in October 1921, two years later, sentenced the two men to 6 years imprisonment for homicide during a fight, and in 1928 the Connolly family sought financial recompense from the Mexican Government for covering up the two deaths. The text appears to have been transcribed by a naval officer, who was there when the bodies were recovered (see the hand writing on one of the photographs shot onboard the USS Aaron Ward), probably copying an original text found on the flyer's person.  $995

E-2778  Extremely RARE WWI Flour Sack sent to Belgium to feed the starving citizens ofthe occupied areas. The Germans were confiscating food and the Belgian already were importing 75% of their food prior to WWI. The Germans would not let the refugees go into Germany, nor would they let them pass through the front lines into France. Herbert Hoover negotiated with the British , French and Germans to allow this humanitarian aid. Outrageously rare item of early US aid. Between 1914 and 1919, the CRB operated entirely with voluntary efforts and was able to feed 11,000,000 Belgians by raising the necessary money, obtaining voluntary contributions of food, shipping the food past the German submarine blockades and army occupied areas, and controlling the food distribution in Belgium. The CRB shipped 697,116,000 pounds of flour to Belgium and evidence indicates that sugar and grains were also sent. The flour was packaged in cotton flour sacks by American mills. The movement of these bags throughout Belgium was carefully controlled by the CRB since cotton was in great demand for the manufacture of German ammunition and also because the CRB feared that the flour sacks would be taken out of Belgium, refilled with inferior flour, and resold as relief flour. As a result, the empty flour sacks were carefully accounted for and distributed to professional schools, sewing workrooms, convents, and individual artists. Separate from the trade schools of Belgium, the professional schools specialized in training girls to sew, embroider, and make lace, and the sewing workrooms were large centers established in the major Belgian cities during the war to provide work for the thousands of unemployed. Girls and women made famous Belgian lace, embroidered textiles and repaired and remade clothing in these workrooms. The flour sacks were used by these various Belgian groups to make new clothing, accessories, pillows, bags, and other functional items. $235
