My last post was found very fast and answered too wich was very great. I hereby have antoher one in my collection of wich i dont know what type it is. As far as I found anything on the net its probably a Ilford 300 but I am not an expert.
On the lens I can read Prontor 300.

Probably an Ilford Sportsman - but the plaque with the name of the camera is missing. One was sold on catawiki for 11 $. ... -2-8-45-mm.
Prontor is the name of the shutter (Steinheil is the name of the lens maker - the camera was sold with different lenses).
Best regards.

The Sportsman, when complete with the label plate, looks like this:
