RAF Aircraft Magneto Switch / Guard
Stores Ref. 5C/625. By lundberg. White vitreous enamelled porcelain base with brown bakelite domed cover & twin brass toggle switches. Marked with A. Crown M. and reference code 5C/625. This is fitted to an alloy plate which has provision for a second identical switch. Also fitted with a central toggle switch which linked the switches on either side together providing a guard. Used on various 1930s aircraft including the AVRO Anson (see photos 10 & 11). The magneto switch appears good but the actual levers are a little slack/loose and do not engage as positively as they should. There would have a been a brass plate attached to the centre switch but this is missing. Rare to find. Stock code M20180.
