By J. Weiss & Sons Ltd., 287 Oxford Street, London'. This Air Ministry otoscope would have been part of the RAF Medical Officer's kit on an RAF base and would have been used to shine a light into the patient's ear and examine the condition of the ear canal and eardrum. It comes in a faux leather case, lined with blue silk and felt and fitted inside with cut-outs for the various parts. Gold embossed with A.M. and King's crown on the lid. The instrument itself appears to be made of chromed steel with a cylindrical handle inlaid with faux leather and a magnifying head fitted with a lens, smaller adjustable lens and an illuminating bulb. One of two different sized cone shaped speculas can be added to the head. The handle unscrews at the base for batteries to be fitted and has a sliding on/off switch near the top. The case also contains a spare light bulb attachment. The handle and base are War Department broad arrow marked. Some soiling and wear but appears to be in good overall condition. Untested as we don't have the correct sized batteries. Only the second of these we've had in 30 years! Stock code M27005.
