Dutch (American built) military binocular 6 x 30 M3 Westinghouse 1944

No: 5008

After WWII the Dutch landforces were organised in line with British organisational patterns, and were basically provided with surplus British equipment.

During the fifties, the Dutch army gradually switched to American organisational patterns, and received (military aid ex-USA) much American military equipment, including binoculars. British artillery gun-laying equipment, compasses, and so on, were based on the division of a circle in degrees. The American system was/is based on the "mil" (360 degrees = 6400 mils).The graticule is on the left side.

The mark M.v.O (Ministry of War) was used until 1959.
