Ok, here's the pic from the article in Combat Arms.
I was looking it over -- I can't figure out what this barrel thing is supposed to achieve (sitting in front of the shovel)..

It's the heavy leather cover for the astro navigation theodolite tripod.

Thx Tommy, quick answers, nearly as quick as SWMBO.
Do you know whether it officially travelled / lived there or was it just shoved there that day?

The tripods (usually two) were assigned to one vehicle. Both sat across the top of the jerry cans as can be seen in the photo below.

I have both the book and digital (CD) versions :D. Prices have gone up since I bought my copy of the book (many years ago).

Imprimatur has a magnificent collections of military books and manuals. Not cheap but they have what you want.
