 Srb & Stys Luxor 6 * 30.

Taken from a German POW in N Africa Xmas 1942.

Pre War? Or early War?

They are almost identical to the Srb & Stys Dienstglas.

Button flap & Bakelite Benutzer.
No markings on either. WW2issue?

Strap seems a little thin to be genuine.

Prism Cleaning & fungus removal with Grandma`s special Cream

Cleaning the prisms of my beh 10*50 Binoculars.

One of the Prisms, you can see how extensive the Fungus is.
All the Prisms were affected.

 Go to your Grandmothers bathroom
cabinet & take out the Cold Cream.
Smear it with a finger over the affected surfaces.

Wait for 2 or 3 hours.
I usually clean the worst off with Fairy liquid.
Then Alcohol + Microfibre cloth.

Hey presto.
Lovely clean Prisms.

beh 10 * 50 Dienstglas

Arrived today.........

German WW2 Field Glasses

beh 10*50 (Leitz)

Marked KF & O (Blue)
Both marks are for cold weather lubricant.
The KF is contemporary with the Binoculars. 1940?
The Blue Circle mark was used in 1941?

The Binoculars have Rangefinder Graticules.
But the Prism plate is not marked with the graticule designation H/6400
Maybe they were serviced in 1941 & graticules & new/better lubricant used.

Serial No. 402954

Currently undergoing cleaning.
One of the Occulars was seized solid & lots of fungus present on the Prisms.

Marked Carl Zeiss Jena.

No other markings I can see.

Thanks to a very knowledgeable Gentleman on
"Wehrmacht Awards".
Apparently the case was made for Carl
Zeiss Gas Mask Binoculars.
