PAPA's got brand new…


…ZEISS TURITA 8X24

"We started out with the brother ahead, wearing a toga and carrying a spear, then me with the Springfield slung and my small Zeiss glasses in my pocket, then M'Cola with Pop's glasses..."
Hemingway, 1935, 'Green Hills of Africa', page 207

“I got my old miniature Zeiss glasses out of an inside pocket, where they were wrapped in a woollen sock with some tissue to clean them, and focused them on the flag. I made the flag out just before a wave drenched the glasses.” 
Note that this quote describes Hemingway’s experience on board 
a landing craft approaching Fox Green beach on June 6, 1944
