Cupola 24P8 restored and on display

In June we posted about two ‘Kleinstglocken’ 24P8 found in the south of France. One of them was obtained by the Association de Sauvegarde du Patrimoine Historique Militaire in Le Wantzenau, near Strasbourg.

And what they did was fantastic. They’ve meticulously renovated this turret to a mint condition and put it on display outside their museum, on a small room which allows visitors to see the inside.

A fabrication number was found on the inside which showed it was made by Gruson, as late as in 1941!

The whole renovation project was photographed and can be seen on the association website.
