    I have always understood glasses such as these to have been commercially produced during the early part of the 20th Century and I think quite a few were purchased privately for use in WW1, so could be either really.

    I've got vague memories of reading these binoculars marked Army & Navy were french produced!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Canadian issue mark on the case, so used by them, or at least the case was.

    They are of the type that I would think of as being WWI period.

    French Made WWI-era and used by both civilian and military, but the case looks civilian, so I am thinking these were a private purchase civilian pair.

    I have since bought a pair of these and they are marked Army & Navy Paris, so French indeed.

    Civilian issue binos if officially accepted into service mostly have a S and a number after it which grades them for military use.

    I also bought another French made pair of a different type, with a broad arrow mark and a S & # mark.

    2 binos and 1 case
