I wonder where this came from???????
I specialize in M1 carbines and Lugers.
From what i can make out a MK 3a seat was fitted to Valiant bombers!..
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Yes, 1955 vintage with a modified 'between the legs' lower handle fitted, there were some straps and buckles in the leaf mould in the pan too.

Cheers Ned and Gunny, my first thought was Victor as it's not Vulcan (sat on one now) and has arm rests, so bomber. The '55 date threw me whilst looking in the wood. As you say, unique to Valiants. Now the fun of removing the roots, grime and tiny livestock. It still has the gun and rail attached so is a challenge to move.
Nice piece, I had one very similar which I recently sold as Iím selling up, well done for rescuing it! Anything else interesting at the paintball place?
Cheers Mr.ideas. The owner had pointed out the seat but I don't think there was anything else about, apart from the very mouldy Whirlwind helicopter it arrived in (bought from the museum at Rhoose airport when it closed, seat found inside).
I've managed to get the launch rail and gun free and found the aircraft serial number painted on the back. Here she was in happier days:
