Different to Vulcan fit, but it brings it all back - can almost smell it!

Thanks for posting the pictures, sandym.

Does anyone know why the N.B.S. Navigation Panel (13) is in a circular case?

Because it was in a circular case with the flanged front panel. It looks pretty normal to me

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

All the NBC components were in circular cans and were made by EMI. The CU 585, 595 and Ind 301 were part of the H2S by BTH.

The Green Satins were repurposed and used in the Varsity navigation trainers. The low (very) groundspeeds didn't suit them and they unlocked most of the time.
