    Thank you very much! I've been researching the british Mk1a Drift Sight, and I think this could be it!

    Good man!

    Hi Moggy,

    >I've been researching the british Mk1a Drift Sight, and I think this could be it!

    Hm, I believe drift sights are actually navigational instruments, not bomb sights. The bomb sight manual actually demands "avoidance of drift".

    Here is a picture of a bomb sight from CW Hewitt's "An Elementary Course of Air Navigation", undated but certainly pre-WW2, showing a simple drift indicator. (There were more complicated devices for the same purpose.)

    Regards,

    Henning (HoHun)

    Nice bombsight handbook thanks...trying to find a spec sheet or drawing on the bombsights used by early Japanese bombers. Maybe it was a gunsight.
