HMS Colossus artifacts for sale

Below are some artifacts for sale that I have salvaged from the wreck over the years.You should be aware that I have raised a vast collection of material from this wreck and much of it had been on display in my local museum here on the Isles of Scilly for nearly 15 years. Sadly, they decided no longer to keep it so much of it now must go as a result. A second smaller display is on show on the mainland in Chichester Museum for the next 15months. I am also the author of the limited edition book entitled- 'Wreck of Colossus' . Any purchase you make from me will come with an individually hand written and signed letter of providence from myself- the salvor.
