    BATTLE OF BRITAIN ERA, MATCHING NUMBERS, Cased, WW2 1940 British Anti Aircraft (A.A.) / Close Range Attack, Verifying Camera By Houghton Butcher Manufacturing Co E17 (London) With Type II 10 1/2" Lens, Serial Number 738 & Accessories. Sn 10782 10782

    Little is known about these cameras. During WW2 Anti Aircraft personnel would have used these portable still cameras to verify/ identify types of enemy aircraft and confirm hits on targets. RAF aircrews would have used them to verify strikes during close range attacks. This is a superb, rare complete example with accessories. The camera comprises a steel cased camera fitted with a Type II 10 1/2" lens with hinged lense protector and cable wired steel pistol grip with wood scales and adjustment arms with Bakelite ball ends. The case of the camera has it's model and type detail together with serial number '738' (illustrated) all highlighted in original white paint. The camera and accessories retain all of their original grey paint covering. Accessories include, adjustment tools, spare spring, spare film holder and spare reflector lense. The camera is complete with it's original wood transit case with hinged lid, clasp fasteners and rope carry handle. The interior of the case has compartments for the camera and it's accessories. The interior of the lid has it's original stamped steel instruction plate. The bottom of the plate has the manufacturer detail and '1940' date as can be seen in image 2 (The Battle Of Britain was fought between Summer & Autumn of 1940). There is also an old contemporary auction label 'S&H Lot 156'. The exterior of the case has reinforced riveted steel corner protectors and it retains most of it's original green/grey paint. The exterior lid of the case is stencilled with original markings 'AA Verifying Camera' and with matching serial number '738'. We have not tested this camera but it is undamaged and appears fully functional. Price for this piece of early WW2 dated history worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 10782
