Lieut Reynell-Pack's 1932 Zeiss Deltrintem
« on: January 06, 2018, 05:08:29 PM »
These originally belonged to Mrs Joan Reynell-Pack of Newton Abbot (her details are still marked on the prism plate) and were used by her son Lieut Heber Reynell-Pack who was born on 24 October 1916 and served with the 3rd battalion, Grenadier Guards, part of the BEF in France in 1940.

He was killed in action in a Bren Gun Carrier near the River Escaut on the 21st May and is commemorated on the Dunkirk Memorial, Nord, France.

Hi Niall,
Congrats, I see that you have several binos that tell us the history. It is very nice to know also the owner's life history.  :) Think if they, comfortably seated in the armchair, could talk to us  ;)

Cheers

Niall, you should really write a book about binos and the many people having used these! It would be a very livingly work about the last hundred years's history!
