    The Rolls Royce Merlin was without doubt the most versitile aircraft engine in the United Kingdoms War against the Axis Powers. It would be no stretch to assert that in those dark years before Dec 6 and the effort was joined by the United States. That the entire offensive effort against the Axis powers in occupied europe was carried almost exclusively by the Merlin Family of engines. Many of my countrymen placed their lives in the hands of these engines and the Erks that maintained them. With this in mind i was hoping to unearth any information regarding the location of any RR Merlins in Australia that may be obtained ,by either love or money. The intention is to initially mount it as a trailerable running display for the local airshows. Obviosly to bring the engine/s up to airworthy condition mounted in an airframe would be the ultimate dream. Rumours welcome Thanks All
