    British WW 2 Torpedo Head with pump

    Good Day All.

    Saw this piece of equipment for sale in Cape Town. Not my field at all, but some one may be interested.

    I may get some terminology wrong, but I'm sure you guys will figure it out.

    I was told that this was the head of a British MK. 1 torpedo. I think there may be some cut away sections which may indicate that it was used for training.

    It also has a gyro attached.

    This item is selling for R10 000 approx. 500 pounds.

    Also seen there was this pump which I was told was used to pressurise the torpedo before being fired.

    This pump is selling for R3 000 approx. 150 pounds
