    No.5 Mk I Tail Pistol

    Hi,
    I just received this in the mail.
    It's stamped with an upwards facing arrow and M.M.LTD No5 Mk I 5/18.
    It also has 42 stamped into the left hand side of the propeller. I would appreciate it if any members could share some information or diagrams on this piece.
    Many thanks,
    Invest

    here's details of the 5B from the RAF ordnance manual from the 1920s which might be of interest. Dave
