What's in a Dimaron?

Does anyone know the optical layout of Leitz Dimaron projection lenses?

I've searched online and there seems to be no optical diagrams available for these lenses.

Looking at the bokeh from online examples I'm pretty sure that they probably have the same four element "triplet" arrangement as the Hektors and Elmarons.

The Elamron "triplet".

I know that the Colorplan has a totally different "Double Gauss(ish)" formula, so Leitz was not totally obsessed with the Hektor scheme.

I have seen a Dimaron for sale that was claimed to be pre-war, so they must have been around quite a while, but oddly they are not mentioned at all in the Vade Mecum.
