The Spitfire MK I was originally armed with eight .303 in Browning machine guns, each with 300 rounds.

Mk 1 Vickers Wellington Front Gunners seat and Turret Perspex (pg4 arm)

This is a unique item. This seat confirmed by the Royal Airforce Museum in Stafford and other sources as a front gunners seat from a MK I A Vickers Wellington Bomber.

It is believed that this is the only item left from the original Vickers designed front Turret of the Wellington Bomber.

Later variants of the Wellington replaced the Vickers designed turrets with Frazer Nash units very early in their development. There are no surviving examples of these turrets known, this is the only seat known to exist anywhere in the world. 

In addition the Perspex shown was found in the same location and may also be from these early Vickers turrets as extensive research has as yet failed to identify any other options.

Mk Is totalled 181, of which three were built at Chester. These were followed by 187 Mk I A with Nash and Thompson turret.
