    Wow, fantastic information, thanks so much Rob and Joseph. Rob, that's a great period photo. I'll take your offer on the .pdf, I'll drop you a line.
    I like this phone, it seems it is quite a common item but it certainly is of its time and is pleasing to look at, and I think it would pretty much compliment any Allied WW2 display.
    Nuno, as regards a lucky find, I get brought all sorts of stuff at work, an example of some blades below which I will post on the relevant section(s) soon. The helmets on this thread were brought in too. The staff wear them sometimes :-) I think the most unusual item has to be a Household Cavalry bearskin which I have.
    I had some clown bring in some Russian WW2 grenades once, fuzes intact, with dirt still on them.
    Advice was given in the strongest possible terms!
    Thanks again for the info.

    Best Regards,

    Andy

    Rob, as an aside. In your photo, who is this guy, and what the heck is he up to?

    According to the caption HERE, that's Gunner "Chuck" Drickerson operating an optical rangefinder.

    That's exactly what he is doing. Field Regiments held various such technical equipment, although they tended not to use it as much as the simple map-spotting tools of map, compass and binoculars. Rangefinders Nos 2, 11, 11A, 13 and 13A were the types used by artillery. The one in the picture is a No 2 I think.

    BTW, I actually wrote that caption, it's from the website of another forum I belong to The original caption from the Canadian Archives suggested Dickerson is wearing a US helmet, which I copied, but I have my doubts...

    It looks more like an OTAN, or is he wearing an M1 backwards?

    You know, that was my first thought too.
    I think it's an M1 worn backwards, so the peak doesn't get in the way of the viewfinder.

    It is very Fallschirmjäger-ish in appearance...
