Air Ministry Light Switch
An original example featuring a porcelain back plate and domed brass cover and switch gear. Clearly embossed to the brass with a Kings Crown and below the Air Ministry stores reference number 5A/450. RAF equipment designate in the 5A series covered ground lighting so we believe this to be a standard light switch used throughout RAF bases in WWII.
The porcelain mount carries various stampings to the reverse including 'BCM Registered Ektrik' who we assume to be the maker and registered name. Condition is excellent and the switch spring remains firm but this item is for sale purely as a collectable as we doubt it complies with UK let alone EU current legislation! Measures 2.5" diameter (6.2 cm)
