Default Besa bow gun mounting?

Hello,

Does anybody have any good drawings or pictures (from the inside) of the flexible bow gun mounting of a Besa on a tank? I'm assuming that mounting was similar on all British tanks that mounted the Besa in a bow position.

What kind of sight/optic did the mounting use?

Thank you.

It wasnít the same on all tanks: the Churchill had a kind of squarish internal gun shield while the Cromwell and Comet used a ball mount, for example. Iím not having any luck finding pictures of the latter two online, though hereís a video that shows the Churchillís Besa mounting:
