A rare MK V WW1 aircraft altimeter by T. Wheeler, London.
Well - known barograph & barometer makers of the period.
 

Circa - 1916 / 17.  Serial No 9810g.


In very nice original condition, having an excellent clean dial. The rear
of the case painted in 'military green drab' paint, and stamped with
the Royal Flying Corps mark - proving its use during WW1.

It responds well to barometric pressure variations allowing it to be
demonstrated as a simple barometer in the home.

More difficult to source than later British WW1 altimeters.
