    Hi HD,

    It's a shipboard gunsight typically used on deck guns of 1" to 4.5" in both anti aircraft & anti shipping roles.

    They would have been used on Corvettes, Subchasers & other small escorts.

    Regards, Ned.

    Probably used by the USN, but definitely Canadian Navy as the patent no. (G 376) is Canadian, so probably any Commonwealth forces as well like RN, RAN and RNZN.
