WW1 BRITISH No. 9 ‘BOX’ TRENCH PERISCOPE
An excellent condition No. 9 Trench periscope, affectionately nick-named the ‘Box’ periscope.
Original green finish is mostly intact, with all its hooks and fittings present and in working order.
The securing clip for securing when opened is with some surface rust, but is no-the-less in full working order.
Wooden body is damage free.
Its also with a good clear WD broad arrow issue marking and carries the remains of its issue and instruction paper label, detailing what the scope is and date of issue 1916.
A very nice condition, what was even when new a fragile item.
(The scope is photographed in its folded configuration. It opens up fully and is in fully functioning condition).
This is a SOLD Item.
