Google translate is your friend here. Copy and paste there and a reasonable approach to the Russian version will pop-up. Jose.

Cool stuff Helmut, thanks for posting.

B.t.w. I wonder how the switch worked based on the second photo in your first link. It looks like there is a kind of hole on the flat piece by the "pole" on the left. Maybe there was a pin on the poles so they could be secured and aligned easier.

Is there an expert in Russian army uniforms here to identify the time period? :Salute:

The switch is WWII, as is the turntable. In the first photo, the guy standing on the right seems to be a German NCO. The turntable was made by Germans. Both photos were taken in Russia.
