Latest Find - Model P6 Spitfire Compass c/w Case

Recommended Posts

url]Good Afternoon Everyone......

Model P6 Compass c/w Wooden Case

I had to do a little research on this first but it is a Model P6 Aircraft Compass for a Spitfire.....

I understand that the P6 was used on Mk 1, 2, 3, and 4 and then switched to the P8 for the remaining Marks......

I have tried to post a photo but am unable to do so from Windows 10 so I has to borrow one from another site but it is the same.....

Now what to do with it as in my field / area of collecting the airplane had not been invented yet.....  LOL

Wasn't the Mk. 6 the version that was sold to Spain after the War ?

With your early interests you should be collecting observation balloons - parts and pictures  ?      Mervyn

Hi Mervyn.....

Yes and the best QSA is one to the RE Balloon Section.....

This P6 still has the paper label on the box and matches on the compass dated 1940 and same supply depot in the UK......
