A fascinating relic, a large section of aluminum aircraft skin, approx. 40" x 15 ¾", from the trailing edge of the wing of a Luftwaffe Junkers Ju 88 light bomber, Werk Nr. 5072, fuselage code 9K+FS, which was shot down over Britain on Aug 12, 1940 and crashed at the Portsmouth Docks. Three of the crew were killed and one taken prisoner. The relic presented here was recovered from Portsmouth harbor in 1940 by a scrap dealer and kept as a souvenir for decades, until it entered the collection of Mike Miner. In addition, the relic has been signed by eighteen veterans of World War II at the Currahee Military Weekend at Toccoa, Georgia on October 2-3, 2009. The signatories also inscribed a register, present with the lot, recording their names: FRED A. BARLOW, IRA MOREHART, JAKE MCNIECE, TOM KENNEDY, EDWARD D. SHAMES, ROBERT PARKS, MALCOLM A. MARTIN, REED PELFREY, LEONARD RILEY, MARIO PATRUNO and CARL BECK, all of the 101st Airborne Division; JOHNNY LACOUNT of the 1st Armored Division; MACK ABBOTT and SYBLE DOYLE of the 1st Marine Division; HENRY S. SMITH of the U.S. Navy ships ALBEMARLE, DAVISON and HANK; and EMORY B. ASHURST of the 2nd Marine Division. Most include their ranks, units, dates of service and other information. A Currahee Military Weekend sticker has also been applied to the relic. Altogether a fine relic of World War II with wide-reaching interest.
