    By the way this photo is RKT Peter Frantz from the Sturmgeschutz Abt " Grossdeutschland "
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Well if it's cme it's definately German that's for sure.They may have been a maker of different kind's of instrument's like this one too.It does look much like a single rabbit ear used in Stug's and many other assault gun's including the Jagdpanther
