Default Identification of camo box

Hello,


I found this box in my town's flea market last week and I'm wondering if it's WW2 and what it was for ?


Thanks for your help.

It seems to a ww2 German interior box probably for a tank. It translates to "2 Angle Mirrors". Very nice find. I have one similar but for flares

It definitly looks like yours. So it may come from an german armored equipment.






I think we are on the good way for the identification !!!
Thanks for your help.

It would be for two angled glassblocks for a commander or driver in an armoured vehicle. Now you'll have to find out for what vehicle...PzKpfw or StuG. I've got a couple of headset-throatmicro boxes.

I agree, you could try posting your box to the Panzer forums, they might be able to tell you a little bit more
