Plenty of finds from a new site on a British Airfield.

Article about: 145 and 146 is definatly somthing to do with the weapons system as the same idea is in use today. The pilot can turn his weapon system to safe or not have all the required safety conditions

    Hi Luckystrike and SteveT

    Just had a look at this - item 256 is part of an engine control manufactured by a company called MRC. They were fitted to a variety of aircraft and were used as carb or boost cut outs. They come in a variety of different designs - Luckystrikes is a type I haven't seen before. SteveT - is there any chance you can post a pic of yours please?

Pic 222 tecalemit is a company making vehicle servicing equipment founded 1922.[ still in business ] rd.[registry of design]number 704318 means that your item was designed in 1924 but made at a later date probably. hope this helps a little, all the best,willie.

    Hi Lucky Strike, I know this thread is ancient history but had to ask. I'm building a Bomb Aimers panel for a Lancaster and have all the parts. Only bug I have is that the 16 switch selector unit I picked up has the tube with the status for jettison / container / safe salvo missing from my unit and I cannot find one anywhere. I see that you found a couple of these and was wondering if you may be prepared to part with one of them so I could restore my unit? Thanks for your consideration.
