Hello - the 30th Inf Bde Routine Orders for 3rd Sep 1915 (Gallipoli) mentions "..Barr & Stroud Rangefinders.." can anyone help me understand exactly what these were? Thanks. MG
I have an original 1912 dated B&S range finder in collection, complete with it's wooded box and rarer than rare alliminium short tripod which is dated 1916.
I've attached a photo of the B&S standing in it's box. The box had a small brass leg which allowed the lid to stay up so the range finder could be zeroed in.
It could also be hand held by the two fold down handles.
I've just tried to up-load a photo of mine, but the site wouldn't allow it as the file was too big.
Please e-mail me and I'll be more than happy to send you the link
