I am looking for an image showing an Air Ministry Tee Handle pull fitted to British aircraft. Anybody out there? Believe it or not my grandfather's 1929 Humber tourer, crudely converted to a station wagon, had one fitted to the dash board. The bullet hole in the rear door suggested possible active service at some point in its life. :) Mark

I guess that was what the sprig of lucky heather was for that seems to be tucked into the inner wing :)

Asked this previously on our thread, has anyone got a complete assembly going spare that they'd be prepared to part with for our Stiring? John
