Rare R.A.F Operations Room Counters and Aircraft Director


Code: 10657

Exciting opportunity to acquire this set of rare Operations room 'counters'  for showing information relating to an enemy raid. Together with a hinged action aircraft directional pointer and display stand for information.  When details of raids were received at Group level  they were displayed on a map table using plotting 'counters' in the form of coloured arrows, discs and shields.  Arrows indicated the direction of aircraft seen over land by Observers or over sea .  Shields indicated aircraft heard over land or sea by Observers and discs indicated circling aircraft.  The colour of the plotting pieces relates directly to those on the colours on the Sector clock and the information was updated every 5 minutes.   The counters are approximately 2.5cm ( 1 inch) long, made from painted metal and in very good condition with minor wear. This would make a good complete Battle of Britain Operations room display if placed on a map.( map not included )
