Binocular List #289: 4 March 2004


Subject: Mk 41 booklet

From: Peter Abrahams

During WWII, B&L hired the Jordanoff Corporation ('Visual Education') to produce an instruction manual for the B&L Mk 41 binocular.  Jordanoff then produced an advertising booklet, titled 'Project Binocular', about this contract work, with very nice cutaway images of the Mk 41.  There are photocopies of this booklet, but the quality is not good.  If you own an original copy of this, or know where one can be found, please let me know.




Subject: Meeting in Tucson

There is still time to get a hotel room for the meeting 19-21 March.  We will be getting together at 5 or 6 on Friday at the Viscount, but the first activities are Sat. AM.
