    Default British Naval Binoculars

    Hiya all,

    I picked these up from a car boot sale today for 10 and I'm pretty sure they're British naval binoculars. They came with the case and one lens cap missing (sob). Now as hard as I tried I couldn't get good close up shots of it so I'll type out the text by the eyepieces, from top left to bottom right:

    BARR & STROUD A. P. No. 1907A
    7X C F.42 SERIAL NO. 19633
    GLASGOW AND LONDON



    BRITISH PATENT BRITISH PATENT
    H2376499/1931 No.435220/1934

    Any help as to origin, value and any other info would be much appreciated!

    Definitely Royal Navy issue, from the A.P No 1907A marking (Admiralty Pattern No 1907A).

    Not impossible to find a replacement eyepiece from a wrecked pair I would think, will just take time. Worth a tenner if they are optically in good condition.
