Ref: The Radiation symbol. It is on the sight unit because there is a small amount of radioactive material in the unit to enable it to "glow in the dark", rather like your "glow in the dark" numerals on a watch.
The British Army's current SUSAT (Sight Unit Small Arms Trilux) and older SUIT (Sight Unit, Infantry Trilux) sights as used with the L1A1 SLR, along with the C2 Dial sight used on the GPMG-SF and Mortars, also have this symbol on for that reason.
Hope that this is of some help.
Very nice collection, thanks for sharing it with us.
Hi James, its not convenient for me to photograph the interior at the moment, but I can tell you it is lined with plain black cotton and has no markings at all. It is much more crudely made than your examples, having an almost home-made appearance.
Hi Doug, nice to see some different military items, and in a war in our life tine.
Thanks for posting.
