The engine was recovered in London last year and is now on display at the Imperial War Museum.
It is believed that the propeller blade from the German bomber - a Dornier Do. 17 which Ray Holmes shot down - was put on display many years ago by a local ATC Cadet Squadron in Wirral.
Through Mr Vizard, the Imperial War Museum would like to display the German propeller blade with the Merlin engine from Ray Holmes's Hurricane.
I would be grateful if anyone can help in tracing it. John Molyneux, 375 Leasowe Road, Moreton, Wirral CH46 2RE

I WOULD appeal to anyone who has any club memorabilia from 1905 t o 1945 to get in touch.
All the pre-World War II records were lost at the outbreak of hostilities and were never recovered. In our centenary year we are keen to try to fill in our incomplete history. I would be grateful for assistance.

PADDY Shennan's Rewind reminder of The Champions (Flashback, Nov 26) was warmly welcomed. Although not a fervent fan, the series evokes an exciting epoch in the evolution of television.
I was surprised that Paddy did not allude to William Gaunt's sojourn as overseer of the Playhouse Theatre, almost 30 years ago.
I remember bumping into William in Church Street in 1978 - and enjoying a pleasant chat with him
