Compass change for Lindy!

The Smiths Military Flight System (MFS)  Beam compass for the co-pilot's position failed several years ago and as it is 'type specific' for the Victor K2. I found it impossible to locate the correct one.and so I had to replace it with a Vulcan B2 version which is a Type B. The Victor is modified up to Type C. They are externally identical to each other but with some differing operations . I was lucky to be able to finally locate a correct and unused Type C at Newark Aerojumble and so team member Tom Winter (ex-55 Squadron INSTIE) changed it last Sunday and it is fully serviceable and the system fully working.
