Originally thought to have been a World War II Vickers Gun sight, a researcher at The Tank Museum, Bovington, suggested this is most likely an artillery or anti-tank gun sight, given the gradations on the sight.

“I’ve seen a few elaborate sights in my time here, this one certainly ranks up there with them!” he noted.

We have stripped off the original green paint and lightly polished to this steel finish, and mounted on one of our imposing cast-aluminium surveyor’s tripods. A custom-made attachment fitted to the tripod means the sight can be swivelled both up and down and around.
