Anti Aircraft Telescope Elevation No.8 Mk.1 (pg 3 Arm)

Here we have a Elevation Telescope No.8 Mk.I This was used by the ATS the Anti Aircraft Role. This is Dated 1940 so it would have been used to defend the Home Front from Enemy Aircraft During the Battle of Britain

There were two of these sighting scopes fitted to the side of a Kerrison Predictor, one for Bearing and on for Elevation. Two operators would sight and track an aircraft through the scopes, and the Predictor would calculate an amount of Lead required based on the rate of change of the scopes, along with a value for Altitude (from a Barr and Stroud rangefinder), an estimated speed, and time of flight of the shell . Angle values for the scopes would be transmitted to the Gun positions, where the angles would be read off a scale in front of the "Layer for Elevation" and the "Layer for Bearing". This way 4 Guns could be brought to bear on the same target aircraft without the crews on the guns "Aiming" at the target. They just had to concentrate on the scale. These were used with 40mm Bofors, 3.7in AA Guns, and were even used to control AA Searchlight Batteries

The Kerrison Predictor was one of the first fully automated anti-aircraft fire-control systems. The predictor could aim a gun at an aircraft based on simple inputs like the observed speed and the angle to the target. Such devices had been used on ships for gunnery control for some time, and versions such as the Vickers Predictor were available for larger anti-aircraft guns intended to be used against high-altitude bombers, but the Kerrison's electromechanical analog computer was the first to be fast enough to be used in the demanding high-speed low-altitude role, which involved very short engagement times and high angular rates.

Bomb Distributor 12 volt 2 (pg3 Arm)

 Here we have a Bomb distributor which was fitted to the bomb aimers position in RAF wartime bombers.

 It worked in conjunction with the MK XIV Bombsite and computer to time the accurate release of the bombs and keep the aircraft stable during the release.

This is an extremely rare example being 12 volts, most bombers used a 24 volt system so this is likely to be an early example fitted to a Wellington or Whitley.

This is a Type VI and Carries Air Ministry Reference 5D/663

This is Boxed and in original condition

Air Ministry Reference: 5D/663

The Webley Revolver (also known as the Webley Break-Top Revolver or Webley Self-Extracting Revolver) was, in various MKs, the standard issue service pistol for the armed forces of the United Kingdom, the British Empire and the Commonwaelth from 1887 until 1963.

Deactivated .38 Webley MK IV (pg3 arm)

Used by officers of the RFC and RAF in both WWI and WWII.

The Webley is a top break revolver with automatic extraction; breaking the revolver open for reloading also operates the Extractor, removing the spent cartridges from the cylinder.

The Webley Mk I service revolver was adopted in 1887, but it was a later version, the Mk IV, which rose to prominence during the Boer War of 1899 to 1902.

The Mk VI, introduced in 1915 during WWI is perhaps the best-known model.

This pistol is fully deactivated and has a certificate, it can be legally owed without a licence in the UK.

Sorry UK mainland only.

The first RAF Lincoln BI flew on June 9, 1944, and operational squadrons were preparing to join Tiger force in the war against Japan, when V-J Day was declared.
