Good Evening / Morning Ladies and Gentlemen
Okey-doke - got my breath back and now to continue.....
Firstly is a German inclinometer. The apex of the triangle faces forwards and it would have a card with a vertical cut-out with degrees marked at the rear of it. It is filled with fluid - but I'm unable to ascertain what that may be.
It is the same as exhibited at Musee de L’Air. I apologise for the pictures - I've tried everything - indoors/outdoors/flash/no flash. It looks a lot better in hand!
The second piece is the buckle from a seat-belt of a German aircraft (unfortunately I was unable to purloin an entire seat-belt assembly). There were several different varieties of seat-belts used on aircraft during this period. This has a particularly strong locking mechanism...not sure why .
The actual webbing would have been riveted to the buckle. While not in pristine condition, I'm more than happy with it.
