Mystery Object No.79

Recommended Posts

Who used it? Officers

 

What was it for? Sitting on

 

It looks like a padded or upholstered chair, upside down and as for the part number, when you return VOAS Section K to the Library, I will look it up :whistle:

Well done for being first man in.

 

Who used it? Officers

Probably not

Nope

Not a chair & that's rather hurtful thinking I would sneaky enough to turn an image upside down to throw you off the trail. Actually it is the right way up.

Ah well you got me there, I don't actually know the part number, just wondered if anyone did

If it helps, it wouldn't be Section K anyway & why aren't you at work? It's not Christmas yet!

Judging by the rust pattern and box section uprights, I'd say 26"deep x 36"wide, sort of body depth and width.

Oh, and I have not got a clue as to its purpose in life, but that's a solid top all right.

can you give us a hint as to its size? could this be clue to its use?

 

 

Size isn't everything, but I think NOS is pretty much correct.

Yes I think that's a pretty good judgement.

something to do with the ventilation of army showers or latrines as I don't see a direct use for Humber Pigs just at the moment .

Army latrines? Yes you are leaning against an open door here, but afraid it is some other application.

Nope, I think you picked up on a previous answer about getting warm, but it was the other bit that was warm.

Yes Clive, I have noticed you launch new ones when you think I am working ;-)
