    Default Livingston's Rotating Hexagon

    I've just finished reading Will Iredale's book on The Pathfinder's . A reference (as per the Title) is made to a machine for testing Air Gunner's night vision.
    Has anyone on this forum come across a photo or diagram of this machine? A Google search comes up negative.

    All from Google, I guess it depends on one's search parameters

    Another useful link which provides more detail on the subject: https://jnnp.bmj.com/content/jnnp/8/1-2/34.full.pdf.

    I am pretty sure I have a photo somewhere in my archives too, but can't find it at the moment
    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]

    There are a few results online if you search under 'Livingston Rotating Hexagon'.

    And it sounds like a great name for a 1970s prog rock group...

    Thanks for the replies. It's a diagram or photo that I'm actually after. Pete, if you happen to come across your photo I'd really appreciate a copy please.
