Here is the standard Mae west as worn by USAF aircrew. The colour has Started to Fade and the rubber is  stiff after 60 years. It still has its inflator which would have contained a compressed gas cartridge. Average condition for its age it is complete and a nice piece of history perfect for display.

Avro Anson Crew Ladder (pg2 Pilot eq)

Here we have a Crew of the Avro Anson

It was used by pilots and aircrew to Enter and Exit the Plane

It is Very Similar to the Lancaster Crew Ladder it differs in having one less ladder rung

The Avro Anson is a British twin-engined, multi-role aircraft that served with the Royal Air Force, Fleet Air Arm, Royal Canadian Air Force and numerous other air forces before, during, and after the Second World War.

Developed from the Avro 652 airliner, the Anson, named after British Admiral George Anson, was developed for maritime reconnaissance, but found to be obsolete in this role. It was then found to be suitable as a multi-engined aircrew trainer, becoming the mainstay of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.

By the end of production in 1952, a total of 8,138 had been built by Avro in nine variants, with a further 2,882 built by Federal Aircraft Ltd in Canada from 1941.

Air Ministry Dinghy Immersion Switch(pg2 Pilot eq)

Here we have an Immersion Switch Used to Deploy the Large Dinghies in Heavy Bombers

It Carries the Air Ministry Reference: 6D/148

The Lancaster dinghy had two means of activation apart from the internal pull cord -  the First method was the external method, "from the outside by pulling the loop on the starboard side, rear of the tailplane leading edge", and the automatic method, "by an immersion switch". I think most of the larger RAF aircraft of this period had similar multiple methods of inflating and releasing the dinghy from its stowage location, along with safeguards to prevent it drifting away before the crewmen could clamber into it!

Shown Below is the Dinghy Stowage Diagram it shows the placement of the immersion switch at the front of the Lancaster
