a Lady gave me  a load of PENTAX gear + her Deceased Dad's 1935-36 Kodak RETINA 118  - after lots of Research including correspondence with Retina Expert Chris Sherlock of New Zealand found details about it . Her DAD was a Sailor and must have bought it in ITALY as there is a mark on the case, then a 'Strange Thing' -- there is a  1 Krona 1946 COIN stuck on base ! The 118 was same model taken to EVEREST  by Sir Edmund Hilary from New  Zealand using Kodachrome film to snap Sherpa Tensing.
