Huddled at the bottom of their trenches, officers and non-commissioned officers had to stay informed of all enemy movement across the no man's land, just 50 to 200m wide. Observation was much more difficult than it used to be for the pitched battles of earlier times. Binoculars became essential and most officers carried them on the front. They came in a range of magnifications and diameters. Some had a compass or a rangefinder to determine distances. Many different kinds were put into service based on the needs of the combatant (infantry, artillery, etc.), and on their financial means.

Visit our militaria category and take a look through the hundred years that separate us and "horizon blue" (the colour of the French Poilus' uniform).

The mercury thermometer is 300 years old!

Invented by the German physicist Daniel Fahrenheit in 1714, this glass tube containing liquid metal (now often replaced by alcohol) is used in a number of different fields: cooking, medicine and, of course, meteorology. Thermometers range from the wooden indoor model to the enamelled iron outdoor type. They come either alone or can be paired with a barometer or, sometimes, a hygrometer. You're sure to find the thermometer that suits you on the marketplace!

Key rings
Renew your key collection without moving!

Since nothing looks more like a set of keys than another set of keys, here's something to personalise yours!

Key rings first appeared in the 19th century and quickly became a favourite of advertisers. The 1960s were the golden age of key rings. There were over two million French copoclephilists - the name given to these collectors - at the time! In French, the name originally referred to jailers who carried prison keys on a ring. The key ring has since become a prized accessory for anyone wanting to add a touch of originality and colour to their keys.
