Unknown Bomb or Weapon Switch/Lever - Thoughts?

For sure this is weapons-related...as the Fl. number cooresponds to that.

Not in the master list...but the number fall in the Fl. numbers relating to the MG15.


SG2
Fl. 46222


Seems to be some sort of on/off handle, that connects to an electrical device.

Thoughts?

It appears to be for a radio. The Siemens & Halske stamp I know, the other stamp next to it I have seen before but cannot name.

Here, I think fest means attached and lose means remove (cable) or detach.

More precisely, "fest" here means "locked, secured, tight" and "lose" just means "loose, open". This something like a bayonet lock or a "quick connect/ diconnect connector" for RF cables.

I agree. I cannot find an Fl. number in the 46XXX range.

I just found out what the second logo is. Actually both logos belong together:

LGW = Luftfahrtgerätewerk Hakenfelde G.m.b.H., Berlin-Spandau. LGW was part of the Siemens group of companies/ consortium and were producing built in measuring instruments, shunt-field-relayes, switches, amplifiers etc.. In ww2 LGW was producing exclusively for the Luftwaffe.
