Firstly I would like to thank Napier Heritage for creating such an interesting web site about an amazing company. I was interested to read that the museum in Hendon has three Sabres. I know it definitely has a Mark III, I’ve seen it, but was surprised to read the claim of it possesing two mark VIIs - is this truly the case? If so what condition are they in?

Dear Nigel,
Thank you for your compliments on our site, we are trying to build it up time permitting.
I have no personal experience of the Hendon Museum and have only added what I am informed is held by each Museum, I will see if any of the Committee can help

Of all the Sabre’s I’ve seen, the one in its glass case at Arromanches touched me the most..it had ditched and the reduction gear casing is cracked with view of gearing, believe the coolant pumps were gone too, etc. etc..I became expansive.. pointing out the various components to a gathering crowd who presumably didn’t understand my torrent of English but were caught up by my enthusiasm. What was moving me was the thought, just the thought, that it might have been a repaired engine this AID Approved Inspector passed of for flight at the Aldenham Test Tunnels years earlier.

That is very interesting John, I was also an AID inspector but a little after your time.
