Am generally, eventually, working out or remembering what the various (typically facinating) bits and bobs actually are.  This one has defeated me...   

I'd expect it to be "something Aurelia" and it looks like a heating or ventilation part but that's just guessing.

So - fingers on the buzzers - what is it?

looks similar but not the same as the underdash levers on an aprilia.But they have a hole for a cable pull in the arm.

It is the fresh air vent in the front footwell of an Aurelia B20 also maybe the saloons as well, but is not on the B24.

On my 3rd series the underdash levers opened flaps at the "intake" end of those box section trunks infront of the radiator. 

I guess this is a "late series" item and now assume they plug the exit at the cabin.

Great for a blast of fresh air up the right trouser leg on hot days Grin unless you got a wasp come in as well! used to be a very common feature on most pre-war & post war cars up into the 1950's, look between the bonnet & door in this disreputable photo of me, when I had hair 50 years ago.

Brian,

Is that THE shed? In the background, I mean not the one you are driving!

Colin,
How dare you Shocked
It was my pride & joy at the time hand painted in a fetching Lilac & White two tone.
 Shed was part of the HQ TA Depot Pound Lane Willesden where 880 Locating Battery RATA was based.

Brian,

No offence meant. I also drove a two-tone shed. In my case it was a primrose-yellow and black Morris 8. Innocent times! But it looks like the brakes worked - pity about the rot in the doors.

No offence taken, but I certainly wouldn't have dared stop on a slope such as in your photo with our Austin 10 Shocked
Don't know if my 2c is a subconscious throw back to the Austin, but the speedo on that was also a revolving drum, although all you saw was the numbers come up in a little window.

The cable brakes on the Austin worked, only problem was that the emergency stopping distance from 30mph was about 100 yards!
