Artillery Director C No 7C R.E.L MK II/l Canada, dated 1944 on a body used by Royal Canadian Artillery. It is also marked 836 C and 'O.S. 1873 G.A. It is made of brass and painted in olive green paint finish. The base is designed for tripod mounting or screwing/bolting down to a flat surface. Everything looks like working properly, with quick release vernier adjusters. There is a compass under a glass plate in the centre, which is released by a plunger on the front. Above this button/plunger, there is a small brass cap on a chain with a square key on the end - when this is unscrewed, the key can be used to adjust the internal scale.
The sight has a tripod head mount which allowed for more precise levelling of the instrument. These instruments were used for orienting and aiming field artillery and to determine the angle and direction that the heavy guns were to be set at, this information then being passed to a single gun or a battery of guns.
Supplied with a green metal storage case with embossed Director No 7 Mk III OS-2182, instruction label on a lid.
