    Heren, i have something very special! A "steadyscope" A stabilized pair of binoculairs These are made for helicopter crewman, i suspect for the alouette helicopter I bought  for 50 euros!
    You can see the french instructions on them. And some nsn, serial number and so on. But no ABL marking on them. However they came from the abl warehouse on Heverlee, so I'm certain it was Belgian used.

    Nice, they do have the British country code 99 in the NSN on them though. Things do wind up in the weirdest of places though either through the system, misplacement/loss or "acquisition" to make up deficiencies.

    My last place of work one of the CES's for a 6T MAN SV must have been on an exercise in Norway or alongside Norwegians somewhere as the shovel that was part of the vehicle kit was one of theirs and not a Brit one, guessing it was scrounged to make up a diffy one before its return to the UK.
