Machine Gun Hinge Pin
A machine gun hinge pin from Hurricane I P3921 of 253 Squadron based at Kenley. This aircraft crashed in Redhill on 30th August 1940. Pilot Officer D.N.O. Jenkins baled out, but was killed, probably by enemy fire.
The “provenance” note associated with this item states that his name was D.N.P. Jenkins, his parachute failed to open and suggests that the crash was in Woldingham, although records do not tally with this information.
