WW2 RAF Lancaster Bomber Bomb Selection Switchbox Arming Panel MUSEUM QUALITY. Very rare piece of Lancaster Bomber equipment, this device was located immediately below the cockpit at the Bomb Aimer’s station. Made externally from metal, this iconic bomb selection switchbox is fairly heavy for its’ size, approximately 8 x 4 x 2 inches. The connecter in the top left corner retains its cover, so often missing from these devices. The settings knob on the right side still turns, albeit a little stiffly, displaying the words through a small window’SINGLE & SALVO’, or’SAFE EXCEPT FOR JETTISON’ depending on the turning of the settings knob. A third word’DISTRIBUTOR’ is partially visible when turning the settings knob to its fullest, but there is some stiff resistance, and the word’DISTRIBUTOR’ is not fully visible. This may possibly be rectified with some oil, etc, however I do not want to risk damaging this historical artefact by forcing the settings knob further than is easily turned. Other than the slight problem with the settings know, the switchbox appears to be complete and in good order to me, all the 16 numbered switches on the front move up and down under tension as they should. PLEASE NOTE: THIS DEVICE IS KEPT IN A SECURE LOCK UP FACILITY, DUE TO IT’S RARITY AND VALUE. FOR THIS REASON, THERE MAY BE SOME DELAY IN OBTAINING FURTHER PHOTOGRAPHS, AND FOR DISPATCH. I NO LONGER KEEP SUCH VALUABLES IN THE HOUSE. Thank you for your understanding. THE DESCRIPTION AND THE FACTUAL INFORMATION IS TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, ACCURATE AND HONEST.
