    Default Frazer-Nash Turrets

    Do we have any experts on the components of Frazer-Nash turrets on here (or contact details for someone who is)?.

    The reason I ask is that I have been contacted by a researcher in Holland who has some aircraft parts which he believes are from a FN turret and would like confirmation that they are.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Regards

    Pete

    Pending the arrival of a more sensible response, you could try contacting the Air Gunners Museum at YAM:

    Thanks Jonny; I will try that route.

    It reminded me that there is also an Air Gunner Association (which I think is still up and running) which may also yield results
