Hallo all,

An unusual request this time. A friend in France has a P8 compass and a somewhat battered .303 Browning MG. He states they were from a 1940 Fairey Battle crash, but I am not fully sure.

Can anyone please tell me if the Battle - or Hurricane - was equipped with the P8 compass in 1940 ? I know Spitfires were around that time and that it may have been introduced to the Tiger Moth in 1940 (thanks to Google).

On the Browning MG. Is it possible to trace which exact aircraft it was fitted to if one has the serial number of the MG ? Somewhat like the USAAF using their MACR system.

Regards,

Martin Gleeson.
