Lancaster Beam approach Switch ( Nos 1 Electrical Misc pg 1)

An early brass beam approach control switch as fitted in Lancaster's and other heavy RAF Bombers.

Beam Approach Beacon System (or BABS) is an automatic RADAR landing system developed in the early 1940s.

It is a responder (or transponder) mounted in a Hillman and placed at the end of the runway. It was interrogated by Rebecca mounted in an aircraft. It responded by transmitting dots on one side of the runway and dashes on the other. The strength of the reception in the aircraft's depended on the aircraft's position relative to the centre line of the runway. The aircraft's equipment could then determine its position relative to these dots and dashes.

Bosch Anlass WW1 Starting Magneto ( Nos 38 Electrical Misc pg 1)

Here we have a very Rare Bosch Starting Magneto. I have researched the serial number and i have found that this example is a very early one dating from 1904.

Bosch Anlass-Magnet

Serial Number 73085

These were fitted to the LHS of the Cockpit and attached to a magneto starter switch. as used in almost all German and Austrian-Hungarian WWI aircraft cockpits. Turning the crank handle would generate a strong electrical spark to the ignition wires to "boost" the engine start-up.

The handle turns but we have not been able to test it. We will test it upon request

Bomb Fusing Unit ( Nos 2 Electrical Misc pg 1)

Inside is an electro mechanical solenoid which when energized, holds onto a fusing wire (fitted to the bomb), which in turn has a shear wire built into it and this removes the safety pin from the arming vane of the bomb, allowing the vane to rotate and arm the fuse when clear of the aircraft
  If the fusing unit isn't energized, the wire pulls out of the unit and the fuse will not arm the bomb. This would be the case if the pilot decided to jettison the bombs safe.
