    IMG_2158.JPG "She who must be obeyed" is a minimalist and regards me as something of " a hoarder" now I would resist this as I am, pardon the pun rather focused as about 70% of my "dung" ( MP's quaint Irish term.) is optical in nature.
    For the most part German, British, some USA and of approx. 170 odd items most are navy or flak orientated.
    German items mostly Zeiss (blc), British items Barr and Stroud and Ross, USA - Sard and B&L. I have some post war items again mostly East German Zeiss (jena) which it has to be said are of very good quality.
    Other examples of "dung" - Kriegsmarine cap tallies, some RN examples, some photo albums ( most Kriegsmarine), some dress daggers and a very few awards. ( Too many high-grade reproductions). 10x80 flakglas, post-war DDR 20&40 x100, RN 10x80 Ross issued to cruisers and battlewagons. Some of the "fun" has been finding photos of these items in use. Second a Ross set dated 1916 but still in very good condition, the set in the case a 10 and 20 magnification set - a darn rare item.( Again WW1 gear). The third an Ottway aircraft identification binocular - operated by two people 10x and , 20x magnification, British used by AA units. Four another closer look at the 10x80 Ross 10x70 the largest handheld but more often than not mounted on directors stand. Good quailty gear, more workman like than the German sets but equally as good. DSC03986.JPG Ross 10x70, the largest IMG_8353.JPG
    IMG_0687.JPG IMG_0849.JPG reproductions around and I simply don't have that specialist insight).

    Some very nice items. An interesting collection and one that I don’t see that much. I like that you have the case for some of your items. Will be interested in seeing some more of your items. I have a few binoculars that were soldier bring back but nothing close to this. If you get the chance post some pictures of your daggers. I also am a huge collector of albums and individual pictures and slides. They show a moment in time when the person(s) don’t know the future.

    . The Raeder signed set is very nice indeed, period items from him are premium priced. The two Taylor prints, the Catalina over the Bismarck and the Catalina under fire from the U boat, I have these two as well. I knew one of the aircrew who found her, he was cooking streak in the galley when the flak started to burst around them. Castle Archdale their base , I used to live 30 minutes from it , our dog now an elderly lady loved the place. I will post some more stuff tomorrow. Nicely framed items. I recently bought a Scharnhorst print from artist Simon Atack, he is doing a Remarque on it. ( RN MTB, my father was a telegraphist on one of the Dover based boats sent out to attack them.)
