From a post on Milsurps by ex-Armourer Peter Laidler:

"It was made later in the last War and was used as the coaxial machine gun telescope for the BESA MG on the Mk7 and 8 Churchill gun tank and the early Mk1 Centurions that also had BESA's."

He goes on to mention that some of the parts can be used as spares for the No.32.

I guess Disaster Dog does not need one for his Churchill tank.
Hey, I never said that!

I’d actually be curious what the hole spacing is on that mount. $125 doesn’t seem unreasonable but I have no idea what these go for. Really a niche item & dependent upon optical clarity.

Actually there even was a super complicated for being externally adjustable mount design for the No. 42 to be used on the P.14 rifle, and the No. 42 being quite similar (the ancestor?) to the No. 53 scope, which, for obvious reasons, never made it into production.
