Does anyone recognise this spade grip appendage? I think it originally came from a scrapyard and when I got it, it held the remains of a fuel tank selector push button.
 

The numbers on it are: 2 (followed by an indistinct inspection stamp) A.

Then EV3C4/2

I’m wondering if anyone out there may have a grip with one of these still attached. The third pic shows similar fittings on a Typhoon grip.

Gun camera button?

I've seen separate gun camera buttons of the same type fitted to spade grips there as well as PTT buttons (IIRC they were usually on the throttle but were sometimes moved?)

Something similar on the Tempest V fitted with early gun button and separate gun camera switch.  Pity it doesn't show which button it is or you may have had a match!

Hi guys, sorry I should have said it held a fuel gauge reading switch, here are pics that show how it looked. Does that help?
