    Default Is this a WWI Unit marking? WWI Relic Carl Zeiss Dienstglas

    These are quite the post battle battlefield pickup, truly relics...

    Just wondering is this is a unit marking, and if so, what is it? It reads JR 11 / 36 with a 1 on the other side. They are 1918 dated, Carl Zeiss Jena Diensglas.

    Thanks in advance.




    They are available, as I don't collect WWI, one addiction is enough... if anyone has interest in them for display, let me know.

    I believe the JR might stand for Jager Regiment.

    'J.R.' is an early German way of abbreviating 'Infantry Regiment'.

    Indeed, I got this wrong once, and thought like James it was for Jager, but Mo is correct, it is for Infantry.

    an interesting set and certainly been there, very nice IMHO.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I believe it stands for the 11th Komp. of Infanterie Regiment Nr. 36.

    Thx Fellas ;-) Yes, it certainly is an interesting set... My first impression was "these are in horrible shape", but then I realized this is truly a relic item, was probably laying somewhere for a while til found, and also the damage to the one eyecup. Who knows what might have happened?
