Frazer Nash F.N.50 Mid Upper Turret Cupola

As fitted to early examples of Avro Lancaster heavy bombers and in service would have been fitted with twin Browning.303 machine guns. It was described by those who used it as "roomy and comfortable but difficult to exit in a hurry!" Sadly, we don't have any provenance with this example but no doubt it has a story to tell. The aluminium frame is in excellent condition and is fitted with the original plexiglas showing some damage but generally in good display condition. Data plates are fitted inside confirming stores reference no. 50E 12601, serial no. 314 and drawing nos. 449, 383 and 203.
