    Default German tank optic?

    Hi Chaps, A mate of mine has this optic; but neither of us is sure of it's period or nationality. Is it WW2 German? It's 31cms long & marked cme with 36349 on the top.

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    What are the markings on it ?

    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

    Hi Paul E, It's only marked cme with 36349 below it on the top. At least that's all I could see. It looks like it is German as the cme mark is the same as on the thread - ground dug mg optic stalingrad. I'd still like to know what it's from though.

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    "cme" would be the German code 1939-45 for the maker Gebr.Wichmann Berlin. A manufacturer of drawing equipment and surveying instruments.
    Hope this helps

    Also, there are no markings on the lenses; but it looks like the smaller one should have something screwed into it. Cheers, Richard.
