    Very nice pictures. I didn't know that one of these existed at Ft Sill. I first ran across this piece of equipment 15 years ago at the Australian Imperial War Museum in Canberra. Here is a link to the Australian write-up on the device--a very nice discrition of how it is constructed and operates (RELAWM07905 - Giant periscope [Das Mastfernrohr] : German Army | Australian War Memorial). Here also are two pictures of the item "in action" (Two photos Mastfernrohr 1916 / large periscope).
