RAF operations room raid designation plaque, '+"

Code: M27095


Raid Designation Plaque.  Rare 'Raid Block' plaque used in RAF Filter and Sector Operations Rooms during the Battle of Britain and beyond to display important information relating 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 single-sided plaque measures approximately 5/8" x 1" /  17 x 24mm, is made of some early type of red plastic and has a '+' symbol engraved into it, infilled in white.  It would have been positioned on the raid block along with other tiles when an accurate strength/number of aircraft involved wasn't known.  For example '50+', '100+' etc.   It fits both the metal and wooden style blocks as shown but please note you are buying one single tile - the blocks/map are shown for illustrative purposes only.  We have a small quantity of tiles available.  A fantastic opportunity to create a small Operations Room display.  Stock code M27095.
