Mounted just forward of the Hawker Hurricane's IFF antenna, the Hurricane's Morse Code ‘Spine Lamp’ featured a fuselage flush-fit housing around a clear teardrop lens over a white transmitting bulb.
The Hurricane's pilot operated a small cockpit wall-mounted, morse code sender key to communicate to other fighters nearby when radio silence was required.
The underside of this lamp carries the Air Ministry ‘AM & Crown’ markings denoting a manufacture prior to the end of 1943. Beneath the Air Ministry stamp is the Ref No. 5C/914 which is repeated around the end of the bakelite bulb screw mounting.
This Hawker Hurricane Collectable comes complete with detailed Scale Model, Mango Wood Stand & Plaque plus Printed Fact Sheet featuring photo of instrument in aircraft cockpit.
* Note that this Hawker Hurricane Collectable is pictured with a 1/48 scale model rather than the standard detailed, but smaller 1/72 scale. Click on the ‘Model Upgrade' option at the top of this page for the larger 1/48 scale.
