I posting this on behalf of a friend who has the unit shown in the attached photos and is wanting to id it and establish what it was used in that would lead to is being here in NZ.

We are assuming that FN88 is identifying a Frazer-Nash unit. In the PSL book on British Aircraft Armament Vol 1 the table listing all the FN turrets has an entry for FN88 which is says to be a beam gun unit (no aircraft specified) but calls out two 0.5" Brownings as being fitted which seems a lot for the object shown.

Perhaps the AirMin number will resolve it all.

Hopefully TIA

The 50J of the RAF Stores Reference Number means the Free Gun Mountings.
