The German forces used an extend range of binoculars. Fernrohr, Fernglas and Feldstecher are used designations. New binos were made in the war. Due to the great numbers needed for the warfare, many civil owned glasses were requisitioned in the late 30-ties. This means that a glass without any military markings, such as “birds” and swastikas, can well have been used by a German officer during the war. Making this section has low priority.
