Flown Lunar Module Hammock Hook and Strap carried to the lunar surface on board the Apollo 15 Lunar Module Falcon. Strap and hook measure 9 x 1 and consist of a brown Beta cloth strap and hook, which were used to attach the hammock to the bulkhead of the Lunar Module. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dave Scott, complete with images and diagrams of the strap and hammock, which reads, in part: “I hereby certify that the Lunar Module Hammock Hook and Strap included with this letter were part of the hammock restraint assembly that I used for three nights’ sleep aboard the Lunar Module ‘Falcon’ during Apollo 15…Apollo 15 was the first lunar exploration mission during which the crew had to learn how to ‘live’ (rather than ‘stay’) on the Moon…restful sleep was absolutely essential for us to perform at maximum capacity during each of three full days of intense EVA activities…At the conclusion of each day’s activities, we hooked hammocks to the LM bulkhead using two small hooks attached to beta cloth straps sewn into the hammocks…On the third morning, prior to stowing the hammocks, I cut the hook/straps from my hammock and returned them to Earth as mementos of living for three days on the Moon…This LM Hammock hook and strap has been in my personal collection since returning to Earth.” RR Auction COA.
