    Looks like a great dump, have you exhausted it yet? Would love to find a RAF dump with similar quality "Rubbish". keep the pictures coming!

    Some photos of yesterday's finds, the Boeing marked piece is the side from another control lever! Sadly the compleat lever has lost 90% of its Boeing stamp.

    Nice finds Andy ... the lever looks like one of the throttle / mixture control levers from the B-17's central cockpit pedestal .... but not sure ... have a look at : The B-17F. Control panel and pedestal. .... I'll be out at THE dump this Saturday .... can't have you finding all the best bits ...

    I note you have the lenses from a pair of Foster Grant Anti-glare goggles in you cabinet - see picture below - These are often referred to as Ski goggles but were also used as sun glasses by bomber crews I believe - not as glamorous as the sun glasses worn by fighter pilots, but less likely to get dislodged /lost when in a bomber being thrown around by flak etc I should think!

    41-9108: Casting, Carburettor Air Control.
    The complete lever assembly is a 3-11579: Control Assembly, Carburettor Air, in this case for No.1. This is one of four contained within the Intercooler Temperature Control Stand which is the angled unit beside the Co-pilot's right knee, below the fire extinguisher control panel.

    All the best,

    Is there the same typo in the index in your copy of the IPC Andy? (Figure 210 Item 30 instead of Fig.120)
