    Default 8th Air Force B-17 Base ~ Interesting Finds

    A few finds from a B-17 base I've just started to work. Some of them I can identify from the B-17 Parts Catalogue, some I would welcome any help with identification.

    Hi Salzburg

    H is the back rest from a bombardier's or navigator's chair .... See Bombardier Seat B17 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Looks like you've found a good site,

    Cheers Steve. I knew I'd seen something like it somewhere before. I'll retrieve it now I know its safe. I'm a bit wary of things with liquid in, since that little story you told us at the US Airbase last year.

    Good for you ! Very sensible

    It is the colour you would expect Iodine tincture to be and in a container that wouldn't have been used for anything noxious so it'll be safe to recover.
