    Hi
    As Ian says its from a Sherman tank and if you turn those small handles the two reflective mirrors should come out.

    thatl be the mounting screw a knurled large head screw oposit side to a spring
    while you have it apart look at the mirrors you will see one should be fixed and one adjustable you will see an adjusting screw there to the lable is to record the settings for srtait wiewing so that if the mirror moves you can set it back again and every time the sight is checked by the instrements people they set it to strait sight and record any new settings
    i hope thet helps cheers ian
