Hi all, I have seen references on this forum indicating that the No 43 Telescope was standard issue for 17-pounder AFVs like the Firefly and M10C. And the No 41 was the one provided for towed 17-pounders? Is that correct? According to the manuals I have, the Archer (Valentine 17-pounder SP) was initially issued with a No 51 LC (I'm not sure what 'LC' indicated). But a 1952 RAC manual for the vehicle indicates that at that point it had a No 43 with a removable eyepiece allowing the gunner to switch between x3 and x6 magnification. Does anyone know anything about the No 51? Do the numbers indicate that it was an evolution of the No 41?
I am hoping to blank fire my 17 pdr AT gun at Beltring (new) in July but need some additional cases. Does anyone have any cases for sale, ideally cut down or cracked but anything accepted. Rgds
