    Default dinghy hand pump picture

    hello,

    I'm trying to find pictures of the manual pump (looking like a small accordion) that should have been stored in bombers' dinghies (in my case, more likely to be an Avro Lancaster). This was used to re-inflate the dinghy, when necessary.

    I couldn't find anything throug a google search and my copy of the DVD "The Lancaster explored" doesn't work anymore. It seems you can uninstall and re-install it only a limited number of time, despite the fact you paid for it. It was the first time I tried, they won't catch me again, those things don't happen with a book !

    Thanks in advance for any pointers.

    Hi Joss
    Here is a picture of what I believe is a hand pump (Halifax):

    Default exactly that

    hello,

    Thanks Kjell, it's exactly that. I should have googled with "life raft" and not "dinghy". It's from Linzee Druce's grandfather's Halifax.

    Regards from France
