Hi Sturm 78,

that must be a German hand-held camera HK 19 of Zeiss Aerotopograph Co.
Here a pic and a page out of a booklet about the use of this camera (source: https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/ ... 94be993a26).

Best regards

Bert

Hi all,

Any idea about this optical equipment in service with the Swiss Army ?
It seems to be associated with a British Barr & Stroud AA rangefinder ...

Hi Sturm 78,

that´s a ballistic director for the 34mm AA gun 38 made by the Swiss company Hasler AG in Bern (Kommandogerät Hasler). Here the source of the pic with text: http://www.analogmuseum.org/library/win ... geraet.pdf
And You are right, it is a rangefinder (telemeter) 300cm Barr & Stroud of the Swiss Army. Here two more pics of this rangefinder (source of the pic: http://www.loutan.net/olivier/archives/ ... ee-suisse/ ). At the end of the war the Swiss Army had 114 of these rangefinders.

Best regards

Bert
