Notes:

These instruments were made for Elliott Bros by Munro to carry out gain switching for the autostabilisers on the early Lightning. They were incorporated in the Mk 13 Computer Unit.

They also incorporated an Elliott AC pick-off to give the height lock signal for ILS conflict approach.

These items were in the original Elliott Historic collection.
