    Wehrmacht / Bundeswehr Googles ?

    Recommended Posts

    Hi Everyone,

    Picked up a carton of four photo albums from a former Gebirgsjäger who recently died, in the carton bottom were bits and pieces of militaria and these googles. The soldier was with the wehrmacht in the war and later with the Bundeswehr. Does any member know, out of which era the googles come - I think they may be first type Kradfahrer googles --- you can't forget those square frames. The makers stamp reads BUSCH (well known maker of optical devices) - not so clear on the picture. The lenses are clear in the bottom half, from half-way up starts a light brown filter darkening to the top.I believe the firm which also made binoculars was reduced to rubble at the end of the war (seen pictures on internet), would any members happen to know if it restarted up ? if not, then the googles would have to be war time. Any information appreciated.
