Need help! Undershirt with odd markings

Hi Guys, I was given this undershirt last weekend by a friend who collects German medical items. It came in a large box of DRK items from the former DDR. Material is white cotton and it once had cloth covered buttons.

It would appear to be Soviet, but I have never seen a shirt with these large ink stamps to the front before? Any ideas? Hospital or prison issue etc???

There are no other ink stamps for size etc to the inside, like often found on issue underwear.

Cheers, Ade.

Dienstglas 6 X 30

Hey guys,

I recently picked up a pair of German Binos, I believe they're manufactured by D. Swarovski Glasfabrik und Tyrolit-Schleifmittelwerke of Wattens/Tirol.

Just wondering if the H/6400 is the grid-scale designation?

Any thoughts or comments on them would be great.
