    It's an rpm gauge for the engine but what planes it off of I don't know, looks British

    Hi British Air Ministry (AM) marked and bearing the RAF catalogue Section and Reference (6A [Instruments] 1134 [Item Reference Number]). The serial number 004763 usually has an /37 or whatever and this is its date of manufacture or acceptance. What is it off - Pass but my guess is that it is a generic guage rather than special to type, ergo it could be off almost any aircraft type.

    just incase anyone was wondering, skypilot very kndly looked it up for me and its:

    The reference number refers to a Type A 12702 engine speed indicator i.e. rev counter. It is unique to DH Dominie aircraft.

    I was wondering and thinking maybe one of the Moth series by De Havilland, so wasn't far off, but the twin engined Dominie didn't cross my mind. Well done that man!
