Is this a Vickers AA predictor ?
Does somebody know the different models of Vickers AA predictors in use during 1930-1940s ?

Can somebody identify the Royal Navy item in foreground ?

Not British but a late war version of the US Mark 51 40 MM director. From the shape of the Island in the background this is mounted on one of the lend lease escort carriers provided to the Royal Navy.

Here is a later 1944 version of the Mark 51. When compared to the earlier version the addition of bits and pieces in the modification of the device is apparent.
