Well I found an other Ref. photo and that part is a "deviation card holder I think". I had to have a place to put the gunsight.

Well that part is not a deviation card holder, it's a (drum roll) periscopic mirror, go's with a second periscopic mirror attached to the top of the wind-shield center panel.

 

Info from Warbird websight:

 

"The small mirror just ahead of the crash pad was used on the early gunsights as a periscope, when coupled with a corresponding mirror mounted on the top windshield frame. This gave the pilot a few degrees visibility over the nose of the plane.. "
