WWI Equipment- Part 2
E-2475  Amazingly RARE 91ST Aero Squadron Panel cut from the side of a SPAD XIII.  I turned up this panel about 7-8 years ago. It was found in the effects of the original owner, Everett Cook, the Squadron Commander and 5 kill ace of the 91ST Aero Squadron. It was found rolled up in the garage of his Memphis, TN estate. When I did research, I found that there was a photo taken of this Ace standing next to his aircraft in the National Archives. When we pulled it found that it was actually of THIS aircraft showing the SAME SIDE!! The only difference is that a white border was added to the "0" after this photo was shot. You can see that there is a set of dice on the Knight's shield a 5 and a 1. In the world of craps this roll is known a a "Little Phoebe" and his sweetheart at home, later his wife was his Phoebe.
This squadron flew Salmson 2 Seater Aircraft, and at times, like many Bomb and Observation units,  would have trouble linking up with their fighter escort. As an experiment the 91ST was presented with 2 SPAD XIII Fighter Aircraft, so that they could provide their own escort if necessary without having to contact other units. As Squadron commander, he chose this SPAD XIII to be his aircraft when they arrived in the Fall of 1918. At the end of the War he removed this almost 6 foot long section of his aircraft and returned home with it. It was never framed and placed on the wall so after almost 100 years, the colors are vibrant and brilliant. You will most likely never see a section of fabric like this again. Will be shipped rolled.   $29,995.

E-2259  Extremely Rare Flour Sack sent to Belgium by Herbert Hoover's (C.R.B.) The Committee for the Relief of Belgium. Thousands of these sacks of flour were sent to Belgium between 1914 and 1917 in the World's Largest humanitarian crisis. The German government and troops occupying Belgium did not have enough food to keep running, so they confiscated Belgian crops and foodstuffs. The problem was that Belgium only grew about 75% of the food it needed before the War. Now with the occupation, and naval blockade, imports went to zero. 11 Million people were threatened with starvation. Hoover began extensive organizing, fund raising and collection of tons of donated flour from all over the country. This was then consolidated and shipped overseas. Through skillful negotiations with the Germans and British, they were able to get permission to cross the seas and deliver needed materials. These were then distributed all over Belgium and baked into bread, which was then distributed to the starving population. Each bag has the acceptance stamp of the "Comitee Provincial de Secours et D'alimintation". It is also marked in the center to the district of Brabant which is a French speaking province near Brussels. This sack was donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles and so marked. Extremely rare item of American Relief Efforts prior to the American declaration of War!! $145

E-1935     Extremely Rare Flour Sack sent to Belgium by Herbert Hoover's (C.R.B.) The Committee for the Relief of Belgium. Thousands of these sacks of flour were sent to Belgium between 1914 and 1917 in the World's Largest humanitarian crisis. The German government and troops occupying Belgium did not have enough food to keep running, so they confiscated Belgian crops and foodstuffs. The problem was that Belgium only grew about 75% of the food it needed before the War. Now with the occupation, and naval blockade, imports went to zero. 11 Million people were threatened with starvation. Hoover began extensive organizing, fund raising and collection of tons of donated flour from all over the country. This was then consolidated and shipped overseas. Through skillful negotiations with the Germans and British, they were able to get permission to cross the seas and deliver needed materials. These were then distributed all over Belgium and baked into bread, which was then distributed to the starving population. Each bag has the acceptance stamp of the "Comitee Provincial de Secours et D'alimintation". It is also marked in the center to the district of Brabant which is a French speaking province near Brussels. Extremely rare item of American Relief Efforts prior to the American declaration of War!! $175
