RAF Sector clock to plot enemy aircraft

This clock was used to track enemy aircraft throughout the second world war. Normally the triangles are in five minute divisions, In use up to the 1960s, this clock was altered by the RAF during the Cold War to show two and a half minute divisions. This was as a consequence of the high level of enemy aircraft overflying Scotland at this time.
