Original U.S. WWII Navy 7x50 Mark 21 SARD Binoculars by Square D - Bureau of Aeronautics
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very good condition pair of WWII U.S. Navy Mark 21 SARD 7x 50 Binoculars by Square D, specifically designed for the Bureau of Aeronautics. When the mission was to observe movement across a wide expanse of sky or water, then a binocular with a much wider field of view was justified. Several wide angle binocular models were commissioned specifically for the Bureau of Aeronautics, whose vital work included reconnaissance (searching for U-Boats and other enemy ships), as well as search and rescue; these bear the designation BU. AERO as found on this example. They measure approximately 7" x 8" x 3", and are of very robust construction
The binoculars are marked to the left side of eye piece:
SQUARE D COMPANY
FLUSHING NEW YORK
They are also marked to the right side of eye piece:
(7 x 50)
BU. AERO. U.S. NAVY
The optics are clear and excellent, all aspects of the binoculars function, and they are in overall excellent condition. The leather neck strap is unfortunately missing, but could easily be replaced. These comes with their original carry case, which still locks securely. The shoulder strap is not present, and the retaining straps are partly broken off.
Overall a fantastic rare Bureau of Aeronautics wide angle 7x50 binocular set from WWII. Ready to display or use!
