A Film Camera that travelled the world

I bought this film camera from the Navy Exchange at Naval base Norfolk, Virginia in 1994 for $170 before leaving on a 6-month Med cruise to to the Persian Gulf. During this cruise we would sail the Suez Canal twice, spend over 30 days in the Persian Gulf, lose one man overboard at sea in the Arabian Sea, experience a small, but serious fire on our boat at sea, visit the Adriatic sea during the events in Kosovo, and visit England, France, Sicily, 2 Greek islands, Turkey,  The UAE (United Arab Emirates), and Bermuda. This camera would also travel with me to Nova Scotia, Maine, Massachusetts, Wshington State, New Orleans (long before Katrina), Jamaica, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Colombia, and Venezuela during my career in the Navy. I recently put a new battery in this camera to see of it would still work. It didn’t. It now sits among my other cameras in the studio.
