« on: October 28, 2013, 07:06:14 »
Attention equipment Guru's

Regarding the images - Any  idea of their age?
 
on the left eye plate,  in a circle:
 
  Zeiss Prism Stereo
         8 x 25
 
 
on the right eye plate, in a circle:
 
Baush & Lomb Optical Co    Rochester NY
 
with reverse triangle in centre of circle reading
   
       B   -   L
         Z  S
 
and imprinted with MoD arrow, &  CI.435   {might be C1.435}

You can visit me when I retire to the Island of Sayonara - but if the tide goes out - you go too - OK?

anything with the broad arrow is British and will also have the date , large C with broad arrow is Canadian and will also have a date , most Canadian WW 2 binos were produced by REL in Toronto , I have several pairs , both army and RCAF , cases are also marked and dated, most military binos will have adjustable lens on both sides with elevation grids, hope this helps,
regards Frank
