Royal Aircraft Factory RE8 Cockpit Instruments

I received a request last week regarding the cockpit instruments that were standard in the Royal Aircraft Factory RE8, one of the mainstays of the Corps squadrons in the Royal Flying Corps / Royal Air Force during WW1. I have reproduced below a photograph of a typical RE8 cockpit and labelled each gauge/instrument to the best of my knowledge.
