This site was mentioned elsewhere, I saw this on the first page

A Second World War wall-mounting bomb direction indicator from Sir Winston Churchill's Cabinet War Room bunker codenamed "Paddock" and located at Brook Road, Dollis Hill under a corner of the Post Office Research Station site, of opaque glass and metal construction, 28 cm wide x 15 cm deep x 79 cm high

I wonder what this is / was?

whilst I can understand that a Bomb Direction Indicator would be useful when a nuke has struck nearby, its purpose in WWII seems questionable.
Plan A is always more effective when the problem you are working on understands that Plan B will involve the use of dynamite :twisted:.

Seems to have five indicators in each direction so I presume it showed the severity of the raid in each direction.
