    Excellent finds! Especially like the bomb stencil and the phonetic alphabet plate, certainly something different!

    Hope you manage to find some more!

    I had to do a weeks work near the airfield,So I spent my lunchtimes searching around,After the usual rubbish,Coke cans and assorted small parts I stumbled across a small pit with these parts all placed in.
    Think they are all bomb related pieces also a nice boost gauge.
    The bomb clamp after a little cleaning revealed the code A1080 H2978
    The two broken electrical boxes are ref 5D/590
    the other component I think is some sort of arming device is ref 5D/610
    The three arms are I think bomb steadies.

    Will clean these up when I have more time and see if they reveal any more ref numbers.

    Oh, and by the way, that aircraft instrument panel you gave me at Chatham, finally got ID'd by PB, and I quote...... ' The 66834 93VM504 LL 6 blanking plate marking indicates Vickers Varsity, 668 being the type identifier for the Varsity. Checking the relevant pilots manual confirms it's a Varsity centre instrument panel'

    The bits you call bomb clamps are crutching arms, you would screw the pad onto the bomb using the square drive on the end of the stud, when it was set to a specified torque, you would then do up the lock nut. The same system is still in use on many current fast jets.
