    Gundlach periscope was Polish design first used in TK tankettes and 7TP light tank - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Gundlach
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Hey mates

    I found a part of this periscope in Romania. Used by the russians on Lend Lease tanks, perhaps Cromwell or even Vickers ?
