    Barling received its patent for the stem and bit design in 1935-6, not post WW2. The patent can be looked up online through Google patents. The duration of the patent was for 14 years. So patent pipes date from the period 1936-1950.
    The “Ye Olde Wood” designation was not common at the time that these pipes were made. We don’t know exactly when Barling started using this stamp occasionally, but I have one hallmarked for 1913 which you can see on the Pipedia Barling page.
    Any chance we could get pictures of some of your treasures for the page, with proper attribution of course?
