This aluminium hand bell was cast using metal from downed German aircraft.
It has "V" for victory cast into the handle.
Around the outer rim the legend "RAF Benevolent Fund cast in metal from German aircraft shot down over Britain 1939 - 1945".
The main body of the bell has the three allied leaders, Churchill's, Roosevelt's & Stalin's profiles cast in relief.
The bell was bought by my wife's Grandfather/Grandmother who were bombed out of their homes twice in Rotherhithe.
I think the bell is an indication of the support and appreciation the general population and espicially Londoners had towards our armed forces.
