Hi Pals !

Can you give me details on to this type of boards?

Is it a board used by the artillery?

This two photographs shows the recto and the verso of the board that I have found.

I think it's made of celluloïd.

This looks like something that was used to record the ranging of an artillery piece on a particular target, with corrections made for both range and deflection (windage). I imagine that the data was recorded using a china marker and, when the task was completed, erased.
