Remembered Today:

Telescope from SMS Kaiser

Gunner 87

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys.

I thought I'd share photographs of this Great War artefact which has just come out of storage after twenty years.

The telescope was used by a crew member of the SMS Kaiser which fought at Jutland, and as such, has the ships name engraved on the glare shield. Manufactured by W Ludolph AB of Hamburg and with an Emil Busch optical mark the telescope also bears the Wilhelm crest.
