Notes:

A five-position, momentary-action, return-to-centre, lever switch, requiring extra pressure on the switch lever to reach the two outermost positions.
Given that Elliott Bros had significant product lines in Fuel flow systems it might be that this switch could be part of the Fuel Management on Concorde. The Air Conditioning system is however another possibility.
