Type: Field Gear Era: 1914-1945
My trips to eastern Europe and Russia are always exciting and turn up the strangest oddities: recently in Russia my good friend Dimitri introduced me to his 260 Lb friend Vlad, a Kyokushin Karate  Knockdown exponent who was particularly interested in how we do it in the UK.

Not wishing to let the side down I happy agreed to a contest for the most part where I held my own, I can only say Russians are particularly tough and do rather injoy a beating, be it gving one or recieving, I will confess, I think I was coming the worse recieving but in my defense I was giving away close to 70lbs.

The mornings vodka clearly was not the best of ideas and I was almost relieved when Vlads rather gnarled foot landed in my face and took me off my feet, at which point I was congratulated on a good show for a 'soft Westerner' and invited to partake of a light meal and..well, more Vodka. 

To cut a long story short Vlad handed me this little spyglass contraption and said quite heartily, "Perhaps with this you will see me coming next time, ha ha" and slapped me on the back, dislodging what was left of my dignity.

I place this on Ebay in the hope that someone might find it more interesting than I and will have more use for it as a curiosity or ornament. 

I only believe this to be circa WW2 as it has the Luftwaffe symbol on it and I believe Leica lenses are indeed German, though I could be completely wrong.

I think the photos are clear enough for you to determine wether it is of any interest to you and hope you enjoy your bidding.
