    Picked this up at a fleemarket today in Eindhoven, Holland.

    Believed to be an oxygen tank for bombers. According seller in particular for a Lancaster (?) that crashed near Eindhoven during the war.

    Am not that familiar with aircraft equipment.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Thanks Mike for your message.

    Were these used aboard or by ground personnel?

    I assume the markings/numbers can not be linked to a specific airplane?

    Fitted to A/C , and you may have a chance of ID using the location of the crash.

    Not much chance of an ID via the piece.

    Cheers Mike

    Guess I'll ask the seller more details about what he knows/where it was found/how he obtained it. According a loss register there was only one Lancaster that crashed in/near Eindhoven:
    AVRO Lancaster I PD378 P4-L 153 Sqdn RAF 1600 Scampton
