Need help! Aufspuler - Rare field phone cable device

Hi folks, I just received this Aufspuler from a collector in Germany. I have been looking for one for nearly 15 years. The device is used to retrieve cable on the 17.5 cm reel that is kept in the Fernsprechtornister carried by members of the small phone squad. They are incredibly hard to find and perhaps one of the rarer pieces of field equipment associated with the Wehrmacht. I need a Kurbel (handle) replacement and a good photo of the leather strap from an original example so I may repair mine. Also, can anyone identify the manufacturer mark? It appears to be a letter G inside a gear. Thanks! Neil
