Had that guy known his picture would be all over the internet, he would have worn a nicer sweater without a big hole in it. the feed system was designed by a cigarette packaging company, the same one that invented the hard paper package with the flip up lid.

How accurate was that?

 

This one was armed with a 3 pounder originally, I dont know what the rate of fire was like.

Wiki indicates around 20-25 rpm, a little short of that German Navy's 37mm 30rpm.  Lower MV of course but heavier shell.
