I have a very important question about a Switch wich I have found on a crashsite from a ww2 airplane.
At first of all I would like to know from wich airplane is it? I think its Britsh.
(the crashsite is in the Netherlands)
The second question is concerning me. The white letters glow in the dark.
I have read some articles about Radiumpaint. This is used in instruments till the 60's.
Not very dangerous because it is mostly behind glass.
But.. if the letters on the switch also be Radiumpaint then I must et rid of it.
Does anyknow or they used Radiumpaint on switches like this...
I have also read about (non dangerous) paint in cockpits wich glows up with a UV light than it would be o.k. to kep in my collection.
Thanks a lot for reading!
