Then, as mentioned above, the Mark IV & V were adapted to cater for the needs of war in the air, at sea and under the waves. It is a true antique, very few of the Mark IIIs survived as they were melted down being a valuable source of aluminium.
Being aluminium it did sustain marks and scratches commensurate with age and use in warfare, and post war, until the Dreadnaught Fleet was replaced. In the 100 plus years since it was used, the only issue with this impressive and rare item is that the original glass plate was broken and replaced with Perspex but with all the original markings copied onto the replacement.This was thought to have been done during the 1970s. But this is a sensational piece of British Navy history from WW1. This is an amazing find and is an incredible addition to any collection or as a display piece that will grab everyones attention. Ideally is should go to a Royal Navy Museum as it is so very rare but it may well go to America as it could have been used on one of the Allied Warships, mostly from USA. This is worth a considerable amount and being so significant it will increase in value but more importantly it needs to be cared for so future generations can research and appreciate this actual piece of Royal Navy Dreadnaught WW1 history. The pictures do not do it justice at all, but are important to show the condition. Please be patient, we promise to get your item to you as soon as humanly possible. I cannot guarantee when this will be but it will be as soon as we can under the current circumstances & restrictions.
