HMS Hermes (R12) Bulkhead Door
We here at Trinity Marine, along with a variety of our customers, have always had a penchant for these iconic doors from the Royal Navy. We had a great, yet very difficult, opportunity to acquire some more of them. Even better; to be able to get them from one of the Royal Navy’s most historic Warships – HMS Hermes.
We painstakingly cut these out of areas all over the ship, having been given only a day to get as many as we could, hence some of the crude edges. Please note, these have served for 57 years and have literally ‘been through the Wars’ so some of them may not be completely watertight anymore and condition is sound, but as you would expect after their long journeying. Inspection is welcome so you can see their full potential.
Cor-ten steel, so they can be sandblasted to be painted, left as raw steel for the rusty look as I have done on my den, or life and patina left intact.
Along with the door 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.
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.
