This sale in Decatur was full of WWII treasures. I loved this one because of the sentiment it represents, not just for this soldier, but for all the troops then. This device was the aeronautical navigational tool that belonged to the WWII vet who had lived in this Decatur house but had since passed. Adhered to the top of the scope was a picture of his betrothed. This means every time the young soldier used it he’d be able to look upon his true love’s face and remember the reason he had to stay alive and come home. His wife kept it after he passed decades later, then she passed and we found it.
