Mystery Object No.115


Recommended Posts

Your'e enjoying this arent you?
Yes that's why I do it:)

I enjoy seeing the intellectual ingenuity, the diversity of thought & humour that often arises.

 

 

 

There appears to be a trigger, and adjusting mechanism, and a handle. The lead suggests, either power going in, or, voice mesages coming out?
Yes, very good. There is power going in & out, but not voice messages.

On the possibility that my initial guess was not correctly worded, trying again;

Binos incorporating an image intensifier..........as to when, another guess, mid-1950's ?

 

I take the point Richard that you were drawing a distinction between active IR & passive IE, but it is neither of these.

 

But you are are very good on era, in fact 1957.

Richard setting me off, remember the Vampir IR sight fitted to the T.H.U.R.S.H. rifles in the Man From U.N.C.L.E.? So is this along similar lines?

 

Nope Tony, not part of Mr Waverley's IR gadgetary.

Here's a clue, although don't get too tied up with aircraft themselves. But this device was conceived as a result of something that happened to the 'thin winged Javelin'.

 

As you might expect there is nothing relevant to be found on wiki about it, I'm afraid.
