Hi all,

I found this on ebay, so snapped it up out of curiosity really...



It was found in the corner of an old hangar, at Hanworth Air Park (I don't know when this was). Presumably an old aircraft was broken up there at some point, and this plaque removed. It's a little battered but the details are still visible, it looks like it dates from the 1920s/1930s era.

It's a supplying dealer plaque for AEM Aircraft Exchange and Mart, of 7 Park Lane, London W1.

Does it ring a bell at all? A quick hunt online shows that Hanworth Air Park has an interesting past.
