Reviews: Spitfire Metal Cufflinks

Published 27 April 2016, 16:13

The Royal British Legion has collaborated with TMB Art Metal of London to create a unique set of poppy-shaped cufflinks made from metal extracted from Supermarine Spitfire IIa P7350. Recent restoration work on the fighter, which is operated by the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at Coningsby, resulted in the removal of duralumin, an original metal. TMB Art Metal was subsequently able to obtain samples and create the new cufflinks. Cast in the shape of a poppy, the design of the products is based on a pressed flower found in the diary of a Great War soldier. Each set is different, thanks to the age and character of the material used. All cufflinks are supplied in high-quality wooden cases complete with illustrated certificates of provenance. They are exclusively available from the Royal British Legion Poppy Shop, with each set retailing for £99.99. Money raised will go directly to the charity, supporting the important work it does in providing care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces and their families.
