    Hi all, I've recently found this in my late fathers garage, it's obviously a handheld wind gauge but there's a Swastica symbol on it and I'm wondering if anyone's knows any history about this? Many thanks Jonny

      With the Swastica I would say German but what ever it is for that's another story. Do you have any idea what it is
    2. surfdub66 surfdub66, 5 years ago
      Maybe off a german aircraft carrier so they could let the pilots know wind speed when landing?? Just a guess; -)

      The Swastica does not always mean Nazi Germany, because India has that in its religious temples. But in your case that is the symbol Nazi Germany and could be used in all sorts of ways. Luftawaffe etc.

      May have a military application, but not necessarily, the Nazis did like to put swastikas on everything in the 1930's!

      Interesting thought I was just using the swastika as getting a age time line

      It's nice to know what it is at any rate even if it doesn't belong to me as the saying goes curiosity killed the cat information brought it back. Thanks for the information even if it wasn't for me I just like to learn new things & what something is about

      Hi, what you have is a WW II german kriegsmarine anemometer, used to measure wind speed. The acceptance stamp for the german navy was an eagle clutching a swastika over the letter M, the M standing for marine. This was standard issue on ships and u boats. The german navy did not have aircraft carriers as the U.S. and Japanese navies. A scarce piece to find. Very nice.
