    Default Tripod for M1918 Battery Commanders Periscope

    Hello all
    I have a Model 1918 Battery Commanders Periscope in its box but no tripod. I have been trying to find what the tripod would look like or a model of what it is that would be great. I have seen a couple pictures of the whole set up but none were of very close detail of the tripod. Can anyone please help me? Thanks in advance

    I forgot to mention it’s a US periscope though but might be similar to that British one. Thanks René

    Nice one Rene. Now it can go back in the hall closet with the other tripods and telescopes.

    Greetings,

    These specific tripods were manufactured by the National Cash Register Co. in their Dayton, Ohio plant. Here's images of the factory floor during their assembly, the full tripod, and an image of just the mounting arm.

    Best,

    Thanks Lance. Interesting photo. I feel like the chances of me finding one of these tripods is slim to none haha. But I now I have something to go off of. Thanks again

    Default NCR not B&L

    One other item, if you in your search you view a non NCR made tripod say by Bausch & Lomb, it might fit, but it was not the correct version as issued with the set you're looking to complete. Fingers crossed, you will find one.

    Best of Luck!
