Retro 51 Spitfire Rollerball L. E. Across its five branches, Imperial War Museums (IWM) tells the story of people who have lived, fought and died in conflicts involving Britain and the Commonwealth since the First World War. Their unique collections, made up of the everyday and the exceptional, reveal stories of people, places, ideas, and also events.

The first in the IWM Collection focuses on the Duxford Icon, the N3200 Spitfire—the Supermarine Spitfire Mark 1a N3200, built-in 1939 for the 19th. Squadron at RAF Duxford in April 1940. During the Dunkirk evacuations, codenamed ‘Operation Dynamo,’ Squadron Leader Geoffrey Stephenson piloted Spitfire N3200 from Duxford on its first and only operation, shooting down a Stuka and then shooting down himself right after.

He crash-landed on a beach near Calais and, captured, remained a prisoner until the end of the war. His Spitfire sank under the sand and recovered in 1986 after solid currents revealed it forty-five years later. Dr Thomas Kaplan and Simon Marsh acquired it in 2000 and completely restored it.

In 2015, they generously donated the plane to the Imperial War Museums, allowing the Mark 1a fighter to fly again.

Retro 51 Spitfire Rollerball L. E.

The Spitfire N3200 Tornado™ Rollerball pen lovingly recreates the detail of the original plane with acid-etched rivets and panels and is also printed with its camouflage design. The aircraft’s serial number and squadron code are on either side of the RAF roundel.

Complete with black-nickel accents incorporating the IWM logo on the top ring alongside the engraved serial number, each Retro 51 Spitfire Rollerball L. E. comes in foil-stamped commemorative packaging. Take flight with the Spitfire N3200 and feel the history in your hand. In short, pick this up for yourself or an aviation enthusiast, and it will be cherished for years.
