    Its an interesting piece , Has the Sperry markings on the Face dial , and the made under licence by AWA plate on the rear .
    Stores No G6A-3182 , Serial No AWA / 127 , Part No 643720- R
    AWA stands for Amalgamated Wireless (Australia ) , Anyone over 50 will know the AWA brand well .

    Very nice addition Rick,
    I used to work at an Aircraft Instrument overhaul shop,(Tiger Aviation Inc.)
    The most meaningful to me was overhauling a DG (Directional Gyro) for the CAF's B-17.

    It had a huge Gyro Gimbal inside.
