Swivel Coupling Mk.2 5D/1934 Bomb Arming RAF Vintage Aircraft Spare Lancaster.

5D = Aircraft Armament Electrical Stores.

Often seen on bomb arming/fusing lanyards to compensate for shock and twisting of the bomb arming wire upon bomb deployment. Used on various aircraft such as the Avro Lancaster. Last picture shows an example of the coupling with wax removed on a Lancaster arming spool.

New old stock. Although unused these have been in storage for many, many years so may show some surface corrosion. These are covered in a thick wax type covering for protection which is flaking. These are solid and straight and moving parts move freely. Sold untested for display only and "as is".

Great World War II era item for display or as part of a steampunk / aviation themed project.

Always willing to combine postage!
