    Help to identify instrument

    Sorry for the poor quality of the photo.
    Is this really what the label claims it to be, and if so what would it's likely value be?

    No, these were for Jet aircraft, and whilst similar to the late Spitfire type, they didn't have the little red lever at the top. So, its Vampire, Meteor, Sea Hawk - that kind of thing.

    Value is about £15 in that condition.

    Mk XIA for single seat aircraft, Mk XIB for two seat aircraft, superseded by Mk XIC and Mk XID respectively with the Emergency Flow control valve operated by the red lever. So, as per Bruce above.

    As Bruce and Alan explain; it's for early jets. A proper Late-War Mk. XI for Spits/Typhoons/Tempests etc. looks like this...

    (It's one we restored for our Tiffie before we found a proper Mk. VIII!)
