HMS Hermes (R12) 12 Way Ships Telephone Unit – Machine Control
£1,150.00 (inc. VAT)
Original 12 Way Ships Telephone Unit – HMS Hermes
12 Way 2 Channel, salvaged from HMS Hermes
This one is dated 1971, and dealt with daily use for around 50+ years and throughout the Falklands War
One of the iconic sound-powered telephones made by a famous supplier to the Royal Navy through the Wars, ‘Telephone Manufacturing Company Ltd’.
When we removed these from the ship nigh on all of them were in working order, but we cannot guarantee that they do now and are being sold as a ‘decorative collectible’. Having said that, the technology is basic and we are confident that, with research, keen enthusiasts can get a pair of these talking together, or a company who restores telephones would do it for a sensible fee, we’re looking to do the same with a pair at the yard
These items are exclusive to Trinity Marine, as we were the only company that was allowed onboard to salvage significant quantities of artefacts from the Hermes in the same way as we were with other RN carriers we were appointed to, such as; HMS Ark Royal and HMS Vengeance, as well as other ships of the Royal Navy, HMS Cornwall, Plymouth, LLandaff, Fearless to name just a few
Along with the telephone you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity to accompany your investment. Keep that safe as the value of this item will only go up in time
