H & S. 'Mirrors, Aircraft, Type B.' Stores ref. 27H/2017. Original rear view mirror as fitted to all Spitfire fighter aircraft from the MK.II onwards. Comprises a brass domed casing with internal bracket mount point, mirrored glass and edge ring bezel.

This is in quite good overall condition with much of the original paint finish.  There are a few small dents and some paint loss on the main casing and the bezel ring is down to bare brass. The original mirrored glass has no damage but displays loss of silvering with some dark spots and speckling.  Air Ministry and King's crown marks stamped around the edge. It retains all of the original painted brass casing screws.  Sadly there is no mounting bracket/stem but reproductions are available or one could be mocked up for display. A rare and desirable item. Stock code M17876.
