A fellow warbird enthusiast shared with me a very helpful reference document that links RAF/RAAF WWII-era aircraft instruments to the aircraft which used them. I've been searching for a document like this for years, and finally found it. The document is RAAF 346 Types and Locations of Instruments in RAAF, dated 1945. The document lists both British and US-manufactured aircraft used in the RAAF during that era and instruments by function with their manufacturer and part number, with both the RAAF and RAF reference numbers (unfortunately, it doesn't include RCAF reference numbers, so I'm still looking for that info and would appreciate any help there). If you have an instrument with a reference number, this 138-page chart may help to trace its history.

I've posted it as a pdf file on my military aviation artifacts website, which anyone may download without cost.
It can be found here, just scroll about halfway down the page:
Feel free to download other reference documents on the website.
