    I have a few WW1 Trench Periscopes, however that is one I do not have.

    Very nice

    Thanks,im sure dozens of variations would have been made back then..so far ive encountered 5 or 6 and they have all been different models..usually either broken or missing parts...or...at the "i dont want to sell it" price...Im currently working out a trade for another one of lesser quality,cant recall the model but its of wood contruction,painted olive drab and is hinged in the centre so it folds in half for transporting around..this one the wood is in good shape and the mirrors are still in it..broad arrow marked..i had come across one like this before but it was in rough shape..perhaps you have one like this?..i would be curious to see pics of the periscopes you have found so far

    Chuck,

    Sounds like the No 9. Here is a link to a site that has a nice example with the carrier ?
