Hi Kristjan thank you very much for the compliment.

When I enlarged the picture to before distortion the periscope looks like it's in the middle and possible that the dome is on because it seem brighter like refraction of light, I can not say 100%.

I have some pictures from Holland of British lend lease that shows both hatches forward and domes on forward periscopes. That's both sides.
I have pictures From the TM with and without domes.
As far as I know when the machine gun was added the hatch was moved back and the the periscope was moved to the center of the hatch. that was to give the co driver room to look and fire the machine gun.
Did you know that the domes used to fog up some times and eventually they removed them, when I do not know.

Cheers,

Ralph
