Greetings, Alex!

        You may want to search the LUG archives.  I remember Tina
telling a story of a Leica...sorry, can't recall if it was M or
R...which was submerged in some Central American Swamp.  It may be what
you seek.

Dear all:
Thanks for the inso on drying an M6 I will write it down, but I may have

mislead you. I wondered if anyone had any WAR (WORE) stories involving M

cameras and their survival in adverse conditions. There is a web site
where which states a photographer shot all day in the rain with an M3
although the camera worked fine. He opened it up when home and dried it
and it was perfect again. He also swears that and M3 in almost
(within reason) because of this. I wondered if anyone had any other
about M's and feats of endurance.
Cheers once again
