Default Kew Pattern Bench Barometer

I have a Casella Precision Kew Pattern Bench Barometer which
I believe was used by the RAF.

Intrument used extensively in the Met Office at RAF stations before the
introduction of the Precision Aneroids was the Kew Pattern Mercury
Barometer. The one you have is more complex ( are you sure it's a 'Kew
Pattern?) and may have been used in laboratories where extra accuracy was
needed.

John,

They would probably have been station barometers whereas this is a
bench type and as you say probably for instrument calibration. There
is a similar one illustrated on the NPL website.

http://www.npl.co.uk/pressure/faqs/identify.html

Casella have no records of the manufacture, just a vague employee memory
that a few specials were made for the RAF, this presumably is one of them.
I just hoped that somebody may have come across one of these. Perhaps
this is not the appropriate group in which case my apologies.

Peter
