Hi Alif,

for sure one of the very large german "Entfernungsmesser" models used by the Wehrmacht, but I am not sure about the exact model..? :?

Koinzidenzentfernungsmesser https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koinziden ... ungsmesser

Presumably for use in the artillery of the time..., the local experts will tell you more... :D


Hans
P.S. And I'm very sure, I'm too ignorant of how these systems even worked, german technology, Oha! 8-)

The last one is easy when you know the main flak material, it is a Kommandogerät 40. Quite widespread in the flak units of the Lw.

This is another field telephone set up. In the foreground are the repeater hook ups. In the back those are most likely teletype units. Maybe Rotwang M could weigh in on this as he is the true expert on this sort of gear.

Pages from TM-E 30-451 Handbook on German Military Forces - 15 March 1945.pdf
Its sort of an educated guess based on the photo and a description in US Army's "Handbook on German Military Forces 15 Marcy 1945" TM-E 30-451

I'd say these are German demolition charges, specifically Gebalte Ladung 3 Kg.

or possibly the smaller Sprengbüchse 24

See descriptions in paragraph h and g in the page from this manual

I couldn't find photographs of this equipment in anything in my library :(

Training grenades which had a low power charge the holes allowed a bang without destroying the grenade and could be reloaded for further use

US has similar training grenades where you add a new fuze assembly
