Unique WW2 Trench Art Wall Plaque made from the remains of a Doodlebug V1 Rocket, shot down by the RAF over Kent in 1944


Here on offer is a really unusual and unique piece of WW2 “Trench Art” being a heavy Wall Plaque made from the remains of a Doodlebug or V1 Rocket that was shot down over Kent by the RAF in 1944.

The main slightly domed Iron Cross section is made from a section of the steel body, painted black and the beautifully cut-out and hand engraved Luftwaffe Eagle and Swastika is made from a section of brass.

On the reverse is a small brass plate that has been hand engraved with the following details:

PARTS OF V1
LITTLE DUNKS FARM
BRENCHLEY KENT
SHOT DOWN R.A.F.
1944
BILL

I assume Bill was the man who made the plaque.
Little dunks Farm still exists and you can actually stay at an oast house as a holiday home!

The farm is east of Royal Tunbridge Wells and not far from Tonbridge.

I have tried to look up the records of downed V1’s during WW2 and found a great reference book called “Diver! Diver! Diver!” by Brian Cull (picture of cover attached just for reference, book is not included in this offer)

The book details the pilots records of the numerous kills achieved starting in the spring of 1944 when the V1 raids started to attack the England.

There is no easy way of finding this actual incident but there is reference to a number of “kills” in fields near Tonbridge and it makes a great read in its own right. Very worth getting a copy if you are interested in the V1 Rockets.

A really rare and fascinating piece of WW2 V1 history and makes a great wall plaque!

You won’t find another one!

The plaque measures approximately 7” (17.5cm) square and weighs a heavy 660g.
