Lot 228: Northampton Aero Club. A rare member's enamel badge, circa 1930s, chrome and enamel finish depicting a bi-plane flying over the clubhouse flanked by wings, 13.2cm wide. Founded in 1928, the original Northamptonshire Aero Club went through some remodelling in the 1930s becoming part of Brooklands, an exclusive Art Deco club house in which members could make full use of the bar and catering facilities.
