    the sighting telescope isn't for a specific type of tank only the gun combination so any tank armed with a 2 pounder and besa would have had this sight fitted. would be suitable for
    early churchill, valentine, covenanter , crusader, matilda 2 and several armoured cars

    the figures are range markings for the main gun and machine gun

    Thats gonna be a hell of a task stripping it down to individual pieces. Have you considered making a sorta thread or page somewhere so people can see the progress?
