WW2 MK1 Stereoscopic Telescope ‘Donkeys’ Ears – 1940s
We have just got hold of these sets of ‘Trench Binoculars’, known by the British Army as ‘Donkey Ears’, which were never used and therefore released as surplus.
They are all in great condition, and include all the lens and bits that come with them!
These were used in the trenches or behind trees giving infantrymen maximum cover.
The optics are fantastic and on a stand they make a very nice pair of binoculars. On the base of the pair there is stamped the Patt no’s the makers mark and the date.
These sets are dated 1944 and some are 1945 and have been out of the box only a couple of times since!
In their original boxes , with carry handles and leather strap.
There maybe some variation to the one photographed , but essentially they are the same condition.
We are hoping to get another pair professionally polished and mounted on a tripod again soon , so watch out for new arrivals.
Box 52cm width x 29cm depth x 22cm height
