Newly arrived at the Archive is an original print of AM M&E Dwg. 2336/46 "Identification of Airfield Lighting Type Fittings" from 1946 with amendments to 1949.

The primary amendments are type additions, thus:

Aug 1947: T2 added
July 1948: T3 added
Aug 1948: A7 added
Nov 1948: C9, C10 and T4 added
Feb 1949: C11 and C12 added

I know there are a few people on here that will find some things of interest on this... ;)

Section 1: Contact Light Fittings
Note: ALL types of runway light fittings are identified as Contact Lights, not just the first three.
The C7 appears to be the "enlarged C6" for VHB Stations.

That appears to be an updated version of the drawing I obtained from Hendon a long time ago. There are a number of errors on my version. I'll see if they've been corrected on the above.

My general feeling regarding post WWII lighting was that the Ministry had somewhat lost the plot and were sticking anything they could get their hands on, on any airfield which was available to see what the effect was. A somewhat scathing remark based on reading numerous contradictory TNA documents which describe significant numbers of ideas which never came to fruition.

Plan A is always more effective when the problem you are working on understands that Plan B will involve the use of dynamite :twisted:.
