    UNUSUAL, CASED, British Pre WW2 British Royal Navy Admiralty Trials Anti Bomb Sight With 1990’s Copy Of Report On 1933/34 RN/RAF Centurion Bombing Trials In Which This Sight Was Most Likely Used . Sn 13267 - 13267

    During 1933 & 1934 the British Admiralty and the RAF took part in the Centurion Bombing Trials. RN Battleships were utilised in the trials including HMS, Iron Duke, Centurion (ex Battleship remotely controlled target), Shikari, Saladin & Sabre. Bomber aircraft were provided by the RAF. The object of the exercise was to ascertain the link between the length of run up and the accuracy of bombing shipping. Public records at Kew, documents AIR10/ 1596 and AIR10/1562 provide further information regarding the trials. This type of hand held sight was intended, when aligned with the correct timing rods to provide ship’s crews with the estimated time of impact and angle of bombing to be expected by an attacking aircraft thereby assist anti bombing manoeuvres. A 1990’s dated copy of a 5 page report on the trials by Peter Rutter with illustrations of some of the ships, detail of aircraft that took part in the exercises, references where further information on the trials can be located and detail re this type of sight’s performance was found with and accompanies this piece. The report indicates that this type of sight was relatively ineffective and it is likely that this actual sight took part in the trials. This cased sight is complete with its original wood handle, aiming platform and calibrated brass timing rods. It is in excellent condition . The original wood case measures 13 ½” x 12” x 3 ½” & has a hinged lid with clasp fasteners. The lid has stencilled lettering ‘Anti-Bomb Sight’. Internally the case has hinged blocks which keep the sight and rods firmly in place. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 13267
