Note

     The indicator consists of the following principal

parts;

     Base plate, slide, slide clamp, reader and stop

screws,

The base plate is made of delta metal about 34 ½ inches

long graduated on the upper portion with a yard scale, and

on the lower with a corrector scale, it is grooved in the

centre to receive the slide which is graduated with a fuze

scale, the corrector scale is divided into divisions reading

up to 200, 150 being the normal

The slide can be clamped in any position desired

by means of the clamp, which is attached to the base

plate, The yard and fuze scales are read by the

reader, which is free to move along the base plate, but

it is prevented from coming off the base plates by stops

Attached to the reader is a small spring which can be

manipulated by a screw for taking up any play in

the reader due to wear

Two indicators per sub-section will be carried, one

on the shield of the carriage and one on the

ammunition wagon at the rear.
