    Default Relics of Avro Lancaster (from France)

    Hi guys,

    Sorry for my english, I'm french and I use "Google Traduction"...

    I found these relics on the crash site of an Avro Lancaster in France (Franche-Comté). Can you identify the two relics on the right?



    Serial number: RA5363


    Gearing?


    Thank's you!

    The larger item top right is I believe the Merlin engine oil pump, there should be a brass nomenclature plate on it under the corrosion, I have one just like it from a NF Mosquito. The other at a guess looks like a non return valve for the vacuum system?

    I believe the large item at top right may be the propeller constant speed unit (CSU).

    Kind regards, Malcolm.

    Largest item is definitely a propeller constant speed unit / governor, as Malcolm stated. Centre grey item is a battery terminal post and will be lead. The cylinder onbject looks to be some sort of in-line oil seperator. Cog probably engine related - looks familiar, but can't quite place it - supercharger gearing?

    What's the story re the aircraft please?
