    If anyone could please help identify this indicator. Was told it might be from a Lancaster but all the pictures I've seen show different setup.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Well, could be partly true. Here's a pic I took of the Canadian Warplane Heritage Lancaster. Note the circled instrument.

    That's awesome. Thank you very much for your picture!
    I'll let the museum here know that it might very well be frome a lanc!

    They could contact the Canadian Warplane Heritage in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada if they need more help. I'm not sure how authentic the instrument panel is. The controls have clearly been modified for dual control so I don't know what they might have done with the instruments. Could be a more modern instrument but then again, there were plenty of Lancs built in Canada during the war.

    Exactly what I was thinking Andy. Could well be from a Canadian built B.Mk.X (basically MK.I/III with Packard Merlins).

    Great score there mate!

    ...ah. There you go. Took me a while to see it with the light blue circle but it's definitely there.
