Gosport Connector Tube
Another item that has just come in with a box of assorted aircraft instruments which we are currently listing. This is another first for us and believe it is a section of semi flexible metal tubing that would have facilitated instructor and pupil to communicate via their Gosport tubes, perhaps from a DH Tiger Moth? We surmise this as the chromed metal ends exactly fit the male ends of a Gosport tube and frankly we can't think what other aviation use this item may have had. Of course if any visitors to the site can add any words of wisdom we will add these to this description. The black finished tube appears in excellent condition and remains semi flexible; the slightly flared chromed ends carry a little surface rust as shown but all in all it is basically sound. Tube measures 19.75" (50 cm) end to end. Tube diameter at each end is.75" (1.75 cm).
