This is a modest collectors website. It is devoted to the study of Air Ministry bells
as issued to the Royal Air Force prior to & during the Second World War.
Today these bells are more commonly known as ‘Scramble bells’. Their image is often
associated with a sunny wartime day; the quintessential fighter pilots lounging
around on Lloyd Loom chairs awaiting the telephone call, the ringing of the warning
bell, the rapid activity and the running to nearby fully armed and waiting Hurricanes
and Spitfires. This is the iconic image.
