Interesting. Typos I can understand, but they can't even get the air service information correct. It does make me wonder how up to date/correct the rest of the information is. Sandra Sent: Friday, September 10, 2021 9:57 AM To: Suan Hsi Yong Cc:

I'm not exactly looking for recommendations, but input (on very little information, I'm afraid) on whether a few pairs of binoculars are any good. It's service recognition time, and amongst the gifts available are several pairs of binoculars. One is only described as "compact sport
