Wow. Out of curiosity I had a look at all three of the lens ports on my 16st. One of them looked completely different to the other two and appeared to be made out of a different metal. So it turns out that Brian was right. Even though my camera is not a 16SB, it has one bayonet mount. I guess this means that either my camera was modified sometime in its lifetime (I think unlikely considering it was an ex airforce camera) or it was made after 1965 when Arri introduced the bayonet mount.
If it has one bayonet mount in the turret, then it is an Arriflex 16S/B. That is what the S/B stood for, a turret with two Standard mounts and one Bayonet mount.
