Christopher Cockerell Mounted Autograph Page

£40.00 £25.00

Sir Christopher Sydney Cockerell CBE (4 June 1910 – 1 June 1999) was an English engineer, best known as the inventor of the hovercraft. After he left the Marconi Company, he bought Ripplecraft Ltd., a small Norfolk boat and caravan hire company, with a legacy left by his father-in-law. The firm made little money, and Cockerell began to think how the craft could be made to go faster. He was led to earlier work by the Thornycroft company, in which a small vessel had been partially raised out of the water by a small engine. Cockerell’s greatest invention, the hovercraft, grew out of this work. It occurred to him that if the entire craft were lifted from the water, the craft would effectively have no drag. This, he conjectured, would give the craft the ability to attain a much higher maximum speed than could be achieved by the boats of the time
