Dear All,
 
Ti's nothing to do with guns, turrets, winches or hoists, but the part does control the movement of something.

Well Bernard, what a poser you have set us! According to an ex RN stoker chum of mine, it is something on the WAFU sid of things, so will be to do with aircraft or aircraft handling. Is this the case?
Best wishes,
Nick. :-)) :-)) :-))

Dear All,
 
Nothing to do with aircraft or ventilation.
 
It is important to the ship though - this is from a particular type of RN ship (reasonably sized and not small). This part is additional to and assists.

Pure guesswork but it's either a lever to launch a torpedo or flood the tube, or it's an overbalance valve concerning the blowing of tanks when diving or surfacing in a submarine.

Dear Grendel,
 
You are the nearest with steering :-))  Over to you :-))
 Hydraulic rudder control unit: for RN minesweeper/hunters early 1970's to mid 1980's, and I believe to assist in enabling as near a static position as possible. I do not have more info. other than this.  Regards, Bernard

Hi Bernard, I should have got that one, I have inspected the active rudder system on the Ton Class, powered by 2 Foden FD6 2 stroke marine diesels, 1 for each 'egg whisk' as they were known. I have photos somewhere, I must dig them out, here's a picture of the rudders themselves for the time being.
Best wishes,
Nick.
