    Hi,
    I picked this up thought it is different to the norm, It is a cartridge electric engine start, marked 168 GD 87. really nicely ingraved
    with a wasp and trident, reading STN, 360 Sqd RN / RAF
    May - Aug 89-91. If anyone has info on this i would love to hear
    about it. It is not my usual thing as it,s modern but so well done.

    Sorry can not help with yours, nice Engravings on it. For comparison, here is my one 72mm x 183mm, with a rim diameter of 82mm, marked CART. ELEC. ENG. START No 38 1955. From what I have been told its from a Hawker Hunter or a Canberra.
    Hope this helps with your start cart.
    Regards, Simon.

    not a wasp.
