  • Tiger 1 optics

    Anyone confirm if spares were carried for the gunners optics , if so where.

    Vision blocks were stowed internally, but don't recall photo of Telescope sights parts or spares.

    Many thanks,

    Simon.

    Tiger 1 optics

    Just after posting this last night i received a reply to a previous email from a very good authority on Tiger who kindly informed me there is a small box to the left of the driver which contains items relating to gunners telescopic sites. The box was labelled as such.
    This did not aparently appear in the later production Tigers.
    Have n't seen a photo of its interior.

      It also seems the box internal lining indicates optic parts.

        Just dug out my copy of Tiger! A British View by D Fletcher, and it appears the spare telescope assessories are behind the driver (page 148).

        In the picture below I would hazard a guess that it is the box on the left with the loose strap.
