Another set of binoculars from my collection...
This rather small pair belonged to 2396 Pte Sam Eastman of the 2nd Mon's.
The 2nd Mon' were a Territorial Battalion and were warned for active service on August 4th, 1914. the Battalion took part in the fighting around Ypres in November 1914, where many of the Battalion's former miner's put their skills to good use. . They were the first Territorial unit to have a serving member awarded the DCM. Pte Eastman appears on the SWB list.
I had uploaded his medal index card... But the bl**dy file showed as corrupted when I tried to add it to this post!
