Kit ID - Any Ideas?

#1
Just been posted to an Armoured Inf Bn and I've found lots of bits of kit that are new to me and some that are bringing back a few horrid memories.

Any of you Arrsers know what I should be using this for? :) (Nowt coming up for any of the makings/numbers - 80.99606-6003 05/07)



Cheers peeps

No idea what it's used for but it may be called a FLANGE, SUPPORT, PATCH PIECE (if the NSN is 2840 99 606 6003)

According to ISIS anyway!

its for pulling things - I think.
You sequentially hook and unhook the three legs on the right in and out of a ladderframe or chain, and use the lever arm on the left to drag whatever is attached to the lowestmost hook toward the top of the screen.

Failing that, its a speculum for a whale.

been AI for 11 years never seen such a thing, unless it's off a panther which some units now use instead of CVRT (Comms platforms) definately not off Bulldog or CVRT.

Pillager's right, it's a manual chain winch. Quite common here pre-WW2, along with human sacrifices and trepanning.

Even better, you can have a wombat hologram to go on your pencil case. Won't that look nice?

Cable or wire tension lever, the only time I ever saw one used was on a Barbed wire entanglement at RAF Greenham Common in the days of the mad women,
