Walthamstow Token - 1813
Walthamstow Token - 1813
Due to a shortage of small denomination coins during the late 18th and early 19th century, many factories (particularly in the copper industries) produced their own local coinage for their employees wage packets. These coins or "tokens", could be used around the factory area and were widely accepted, until banned by the government in 1818. The coin in the illustration above, was manufactured in the copper rolling works of Walthamstow, London in 1813. Such coins from Walthamstow were known as 'Walthamstow Tokens'.

Sat on the left is, Elizabeth Rachel Cooper, nee Wooster. Next to her on the right, is her daughter, Edith May Voigts, nee Thorn. On Elizabeth's knee is Edith's daughter, Eileen Voigts, and on Edith's knee is her son, Eileen's brother, Howard Voigts. The photograph was taken around 1929 in Leytonstone, Essex. Unfortunately, the picture has not aged well, and therefore some of the faces are quite difficult to make out. The young male in the background is Howard's elder brother, John Maurice Voigts who unfortunately moved just at the wrong time!

WW1 Aircraft: Nieuport 17
WW1 Aircraft: Nieuport 17

Design and Development

The type was a slightly larger development of the earlier Nieuport 11, and had a more powerful engine, larger wings, and a more refined structure in general. At first, it was equipped with a 110 hp (82 kW) Le Rhône 9J engine, though later versions were upgraded to a 130 hp (97 kW) engine. It had outstanding maneuverability, and an excellent rate of climb. Unfortunately, the narrow lower wing, marking it as a "sesquiplane" design with literally "one-and-a-half wings", was weak due to its single spar construction, and had a disconcerting tendency to disintegrate in sustained dives at high speed. Initially, the Nieuport 17 retained the above wing mounted Lewis gun of the "11", but in French service this was soon replaced by a synchronised Vickers gun. In the Royal Flying Corps, the wing mounted Lewis was usually retained, by now on the improved Foster mounting, a curved metal rail which allowed the pilot to bring the gun down in order to change drums or clear jams. A few individual aircraft were fitted with both guns - but in practice this reduced performance unacceptably, and a single machine gun remained standard.

Operational History

The type 17 reached the French front in March 1916, and quickly began to replace the Nieuport 11 in French service. It was also ordered by the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service, as it was superior to any British fighter at that time. Worthy of note is the fact that during part of 1916, the Nieuport 17 equipped every fighter squadron of the Aéronautique Militaire. The Germans supplied captured examples to several of their aircraft manufacturers for them to copy. This resulted in the Siemens-Schuckert D.I which, apart from the engine installation, was a close copy and actually went into production, although in the event it was not used operationally on the Western Front.

By early 1917, the Nieuport was outclassed in most respects by the latest German fighters. Newer models (the Nieuport 24 and the 27) were brought out in an attempt to retain the type's ascendency. However, the SPAD S.VII had already replaced the Nieuport fighters in many French squadrons by mid-1917. The British persisted with Nieuports a little longer, not replacing their last Nieuport 24bis until early 1918.

Many Allied air aces flew Nieuport fighters, including Canadian ace W. A. Bishop, who received a Victoria Cross while flying it, and most famously of all, Albert Ball, V.C.

Like the other Nieuport types, the 17 was used as an advanced trainer for prospective fighter pilots after its operational days were over.
