RAF operations room plotting tile 'F'

Code: M22374-1Y

Dimensions:W: 2cm (0.8")H: 2.5cm (1")

SOLD

Incredibly rare 'Raid Block' letter used  in RAF filter and sector operations rooms during the Battle of Britain and beyond to display important information relating to the strength of an enemy raid.  The raid block itself was normally positioned at the head of the plotting path and provided information such as  strength, height and whether the aircraft were 'hostile', 'friendly' or 'unknown'.  This letter 'F', approximately 2 x 2.5cm is printed in red on some form of early plastic and was probably used to represent friendly aircraft.  It would have been positioned on the raid block along with other tiles representing the serial number of the raid.  Please note you are buying one single letter tile, other letters/numbers, the block and map etc are shown for illustrative purposes only.  We have a very small quantity of letters available.  A fantastic opportunity to create a small Operations room display.  Stock code M23374-1Y.
