WWII Universal Bomb Carrier No1 MKIII. Spitfire Hurricane and more
Here we have an original Universal Bomb Carrier No. 1 Mark III, which could carry ordnance (bombs, depth charges, Small Bomb Containers, flares, photographic flashes, practice bombs) from 50 to 500 pounds weight. Fitted and used on a variety of aircraft including the Spitfire Hurricane and Mosquito but to name a few On some aircraft it was fitted under the wing whilst on others such as the Spitfire it was attached underneath along the centre of the fuselage. This is in fantastic condition and rare. I have seen these before but only in museums or wreck recovered and bent.
The photos show the API 1565 for fitting to a Spitfire along with the item actually in place. One photo shows it fitted to a Lysander.
Please contact me directly for postage costs as its quite heavy !!
