Bomber Command Teaser - Tell me what this is!
Ok the pictures you see here are of an item acquired by a friend, Ian, who asked me if I could identify it.
As you can see we are looking at a rather large round that has a slug in it with what can only be described as a 'pencil sharpener' type of blade.
This item would have been found on a Lancaster II bomber as seen below and was very much part of the aircraft's defence systems particularly when operating at low altitude.
Answer to follow unless anyone reading the post who thinks they knows what we are looking at cares to share the answer in a comment.
