    It's a Churchill AVRE turret, looks like it's been a range target from the damage to it. There was one of these on the hard target range at Robin's Lodge on the Thetford Battle Area in the 1980s, as...

    I have disassembled these in the past to tighten up the screws underneath the windage knob which are holding the windage yoke on - you need to make a tool to fit the spanner nut in the knob (I turned...

    Interchangeability was something which many firms claimed to have (Singer sewing machines, McCormick Reapers) but quietly did a lot of hand-fitting too.
