Airship interest. Very rare and original piece of the outer skin of the R100 relating to its historic trip to Canada when it needed repairing on its flight there. This repair took place when the airship was damaged while proceeding up the St Lawrence. The actual fabric is signed by T Hobbs a coxswain on the crew. The fabric still retains its silver covered outing. The frame is 8.5 inches by 8.5 inches with the fabric being approx 4 inches by 4.5 inches.
