Re: Mystery Control Stick

Hi Mike,
Thanks for the input, but I believe it was recovered from a scrapyard in the UK many years ago. I looks similar to the 1940's/50's Meteor Control stick??
The inspection stamps look British also. The K numbers, I believe are of the British serials also?
Be nice to know what it is as its got me intrigued also.
Kind Regards

Solved!!
I have been informed it is from a Piston Provost T1 by a contact in the Royal Air Force and all the photos and part no's I was provided show this.

Kind Regards
