    Well that's cleaned up nicely. What method did you use ? I would guess its Italian with the reference to Breda.

    I didnt know that E Breda produced torpedo. Maybe he have a Whitehead licence for production?
    I have a few metod to clean items from the sea. In this case i use hydrochloric acid for sea cluster then paste for polishing brass. it can it better :-) Sory for my typing english.

    Beautiful job restoring this part. It looks like this part may be associated with the depth control assembly?

    No exactly my field. But guessing by the Metri (meter) indicator maybe 5 / 500 meters, 10 / 1000 meter up to 60 / 6000 meter running distance. Distance control in case to get higher speed?? More air out of the tank, more fuel??

    I have only seen, METER, stenciling on two types of torpedo parts, the depth control apparatus and the arming safety fuze that arms the torpedo a certain set distance from the launching vessel to avoid tube detonation or close proximity detonation.

    Firstly my apologies for the delayed reply on this...................just been too busy lately!

    OK, it is part of the Inlet Value and yes the shown scale is indeed a distance controller.

    The diagram is from a 1931 "Manuale Del Silurista" handbook.

    More soon.

    Cheers
