Forgot to add they are stamped eug, I haven't seen many around so I guess kinda rare? certainly not too common I think.
They are pretty much in vgc and are optically perfect, here's another couple of pictures;

I have a pair of Dienstglas marked binoculars-

Right hand side markings-
Dienstglas
6X30
7588
M H/6400

Left hand side markings-
Eagle with swastika and the letter M below
Oigee Berlin

Binoculars are Black with a textured plastic coating.
The optics are very good and the right hand Reticle is present.
General condition is quite battered, no case, strap is broken and left hand eye piece is
cracked.

The binoculars were brought back from Germany by my father in law (Ronald Morley) in
1945. Ronald was a radar technician in the RAF and landed in Normandy on D-Day +3. As
the Allied forces advanced towards Germany he recommissioned captured airfields to help
support the advance.

Hi Xavier

I am from South Africa
I have a Dienst Glass with the sandy colour camoflage.
It comes from North Africa and has degrees in the right inside when looking through it and think it was for artillerie?
The eye-piece side has a nice leather cover on as well.

I will get the number on this one for you?

Regards
Schütz

Great job on the bino database, Xavier!
Sending you the specs on my dad's pair of binoculars - he says it was probably found by my uncle in 1945, a year "everything was to be found lying around in Bergen".
It's really lightweight, compared with other german binoculars i've encountered, 0,373 kgs without the ocular shield.
Worn, but clear etc. No center adjustment. B,R,Re O
LEFT:
blc (with blue dot)
RIGHT:
Dienstglas
6x30
2172034
H/6400

I'll post my own pair when i get back home.

Best,
Ketil

I'm a bit uncertain about this one. The postwar norwegian army used a large amount of ex-german binoculars, and this one I bought in the 80s complete with leather strap (marked 1941 bmj) and bakelite case (not that this proves anything). Statistics should anyway "make them ex-german" - though they look civvi. ;)
LEFT:
Spindler & Hoyer
Göttingen
RIGHT:
GOTTINGA
6x30

No markings, no "Dienstglas".
Real leather grip, center adjustment.
Underneath the horizontal bar that rises the ocular with the aid of the center adjustment it's stamped "4614".
Rather heavy, no ranging grid. Straight oculars.

I find it unlikely that civilian, german binoculars would make their way to the post-war, Norwegian army - not with the brits making way for their own equipment being sold to Norway (by blowing up any sign of german equipment), and the US beating them to it a few years later. Still, they feel civilian. Any clue?

best,
Ketil,
Norway

Hi Xavier,
Tried to write something here but was told to log on and lost everything. I'd already logged on, so wonder how these bloody compooters are so clever.
Anyway, here we go again and hope this gets through.
My No.1 son pinched my binoculars (modern mini type) which I use when sitting on the patio and watching the birds at the feeding station, with a cold "tinnie" at hand. I remembered I had an old pair under the stairs so got them out.
I got them when we were clearing out my cousins house when she died. They belonged to her husband. I remember them from when I was in my early teens. I also remember him having a pistol and knives. Apparently my cousin handed them in to the police when he died. Where he got the binoculars from I do not know, as, like my dad, he did not talk about his experience in the war. My father gave me a booklet called (I think) "The Wanderings of the Black Cat". I think it was about the route my cousins husbands unit took after "D" Day. Unfortunately, before I had time to read it my father asked for it back as he wanted to show it to someone. Due to a family break up I'm afraid I have not got it now.
Anyway, to the binoculars. Markings on them are as follows :-
Right lense :-
Dienstglas
6 x 30 +
23182
H/6400
It also has the reticule markings.
Left lense :-
bek
KF
They are in a canvas case which I believe to be British as it is marked M.E. Co. 1940/??. It is strange that a pair of German binoculars fit perfectly in to a British case.
I look forward to any feedback. I assume they are nothing special, but I was wondering if there were records somewhere which showed who was issued with the binoculars.
As an aside, I have a WW2 kukri which my father brought back. He was stationed in Burma. I rescued it from an aunt who was using it to chop firewood. Unfortunately I ruined it by painting the scabbard black. I've tried to get an edge on it but can't. My dad said that the Gurkhas could get them sharp enough to slice paperLook forward to your reply,
Geoff.
