     Arthur Whitten Brown; Born in Glasgow 1886, started a career in engineering. Joined
      
     Manchester Regiment and, having transferred in 1915 to the R.F.C. as an Air Observer, was
      
     shot down over Germany and taken prisoner. During a post-war visit to Vickers he accepted an

      
     invitation to be navigator for an attempt to win the Daily Mail prize for the first direct flight
      
     across the Atlantic, with John Alcock as pilot - the famous “Alcock and Brown”. Their 1919
      
     flight in a Vickers Vimy aircraft, though eventful, was successful, and the pair returned to
      
     Britain as national heroes.
            [The Victory Medal which would be expected to go with these has been separated at some
      
     time, and we do not know its whereabouts.]

THE AUCTION VENUE is 650 metres West of our Shop, on Ferry Road. It has its own car park.
The bar (upstairs) is open 5-10pm and also serves a variety of food, teas and coffees. Please note that
we do not allow drinks at the viewing tables, but you are welcome to bring drinks down from the bar

€uro Currency; We are now happy to accept Euro cash payments in our shop. We display our rate beside the counter.

If you are giving us your credit card details to pay for any purchases, please remember to include the “Security Code” (the last three black digits printed on the signature strip).

THIS IS HOW YOU CAN BID;
In Person. This is a public auction, and bids are made in the traditional manners.
Bids by post. Please use the Bid Form supplied, and send first class.
Telephone bids will be accepted at any time before the sale (but the earlier the better). These bids should be confirmed in writing, even if the written confirmation will not reach us until after the auction. A mobile number (07974 962649) can be called on the evening of sale only.
Fax currently not being used.
E-mail bids should be sent to us at auction@stamp-shop.com at any time from the moment you receive this catalogue until 3pm on the auction day. Please do not e-mail bids to us after that time. Please use the format and wording used on the bid form that comes with your auction catalogue. (We have a back-up email address of stamps@blueyonder.co.uk in case of problems.)
 
 
CREDIT CARDS

We are happy to accept MasterCard and Visa credit card payments, as well as payments by Switch and Delta. This facility can be used by room purchasers (who pay their accounts at the auction), by other local customers (who pay their bill in our shop), and by postal buyers.
In order to deal with postal clients, our bid forms have been designed to make space for credit card instructions. If you want your purchases charged in this way, please complete the appropriate section.
Do not complete these details unless you want to pay by credit card, and to have the lots posted.
We have negotiated good rates with our bank, and are able to absorb the bank charges for this service ourselves, and therefore there is no additional charge for the use of this facility, as long as postal bidders give us their details in advance of posting. Only for postal buyers where card details are given after posting, we will charge 1.9% extra (Visa/MasterCard) or 18p (Switch and Delta), plus cost of posting receipt slip.


VIEWING; please note that lots can normally be viewed in our shop during the one week prior to the auction. It is sometimes possible to view auction lots outside the normal times, but this must be by special arrangement.

Please bid early. In the case of equal bids, the lot will be sold to the person whose bid was received first (unless free bidding in the room equals the top book-bid, although the Auctioneer will try to regulate the bidding in such a way as to avoid this).

 Open Bids ("Buy Bids") are not normally accepted. If such bids are made, they will be taken to mean a bid of ten times the printed estimate.
Any invoices remaining unpaid fourteen days from the auction date (or after delivery to a postal buyer) will attract interest at the rate of 2% per month or part thereof.
