    also having looked vwry close at it
    it identifyes a small componant attached to a large componant
    part Eof part N/asy
    so the part no would equate to the larger "mother" part
    with E being the differentiator when ordering a replacement

    Dear Ian,first thanks for your reply.Second:I didn't understood anything at all..........You tend to say that this is not a war time glider part?

    if the numbers on it are a nato stock number
    which it looks like it is
    than it cannot be war time
    the rest is easy to understand if you take your time reading it
    cheers ian

    oh sorry my bad
    il try to be a bit clearer
    the plate
    is attached to a part
    to identify the part and record any modification done to it
    if you look at the plate
    the bottom row of numbers under the first 0 you wil see an X in a box
    that means that modification number 1 has bin done
    none of the other boxes have an X so only 1 modification has bin carried out
    the problem i have with this plate is
    the part number 021.230.0146.99.132 appears to be a N.A.T.O stock mumber if im correct then it cannot be a war time part
    the plate also is from a sub assembly of a larger part
    that is what EofN/asy means
    cheers ian
    it means it is part E of part N N being the whole part
