RAF Heliograph Mirror stores reference number 27H/2107

a small but essential instrument issued with the 1941 pattern Mae West and held in the breast pocket. This example is contained within its original calico pouch with securing line attached. Whilst the pouch shows some age and storage marks the instrument is in near perfect condition. The sighting tool is broad arrow marked marked with stores reference number 27H/2107. The signal mirror is again excellent and carries full instructions for use on the reverse. An identical example is illustrated in Mick Prodger’s 'Flying Equipment' reference book on page 61. Like all great inventions this is a very simple concept with little to go wrong and was proven to be a life saver by many downed aircrew in WW11. Case measures 3” x 3" when closed (8 cm x 8 cm)
