    A friend has bought one of the Decca Navigator sets of the type that was used for the 5/6 June 1944. His is number 19, is there a list of which numbered sets were fitted on which ship?

    Hi Roy,

    You may have already seen this site: there is some info and pictures on WW2 Decca there, including a picture of the WW2 QM receiver with "ML 1383" chalked on the front, which may be Motor Launch 1383.

    As an old "Deccaman" I'd be very interested to see a photo of your friend's acquisition. The QM photo is from the collection of Walter Blanchard who was also an ex- Decca employee and may be able to tell you more.

    Hi 610E,

    Herewith Alan Watson's set. He knows Walter Blanchard.

    Thanks Roy,

    That looks to be just the Deccometer lane display, one Red and the other Green aka gas-meters. Did he get the receiver with the display?
