'Mirrors, Aircraft, Type B.' Stores reference 27H/2017. Manufactured by H&S. 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 is some paint loss, mainly around the edges and bezel ring.  Also a dent towards the 'front' of the main casing. The original mirrored remains undamaged but displays some loss of silvering  in places.   Stamped at the edge with Air Ministry, reference and manufacturer's marks. Lacks four casing screws (easy to replace) and the mounting bracket/stem is absent. A rare and desirable item. Stock code M17877.
