The guards at the front gate shot down a plane, and it hit the roof of the lab wing and landed in between the buildings. One of her O.R. Corpsman went down to the plane. The pilot was dead, and he took these binoculars from his body. Later examination revealed the binoculars had inscribed “made in occupied Japan” which means after the war. Therefore, we must assume the original binoculars were switched.
