Eject-o-Hat Technical Bulletin (postcard)
JurisTech Eject-o-Hat Technical Bulleti.
This postcard arrived pre-packaged and matched the technical bulletin about the mispeling vyrus respirator featured in TNU 063. I liked the idea and it was simple to do - I was galloping towards a deadline, as usual - my printers needed a two week lead time and we were off to the States in three weeks. The hat had been lying about the house for a while, the cord is a leather bootlace and the orange toggle is from one of my life vests I use when flying over water. 'Martin Bacon' is a nod towards 'Martin Baker' the company who designed the first ejection seat and still make them today. If you go the Hendon RAF museum they have a display with a running total of aircrew saved by this extraordinary device. They also have a flying testbed Gloucester Meteor (50's jet fighter) which to a non-jet aviation buff like myself, just passes muster along with the DH Vampire.

Text reads: "It has come to our attention that some early models of the Martin-Bacon Eject-o-Hat may have a fault with the windings on the primary booster coils. It is unlikely but possible that an overheat may result in a detonation of magnitude 3.6. It is highly recommended that all marks of Eject-o-Hat are returned to JurisTech for checking at the soonest opportunity. REMEMBER: All JurisTech equipment must be serviced on a regular basis to avoid technical failures. JurisTech Ordinance: OSS/207969."
