    A mess piece, formally from HMS Fury & belonging to Commander T.C.Robinson.

    An inert arial bomb sits at the centre of the rounded wooden, held into place by the hole in the centre and balanced on three feet.

Although assigned to the Home Fleetupon completion, the ship was attached to the Mediterranean Fleet in 1935–36 during the Abyssinia Crisis. During the Spanish Civil War of 1936–1939, she spent time in Spanish waters, enforcing the arms blockade imposed by Britain and France on both sides of the conflict. She was damaged by mine and wrecked in 21 June 1944 & ultimately scrapped beginning 18 September 1944.
