    They are British issue Mk.V bino's as used in WW1. The Mk V was the standard service field glass which was made in three sizes, wide, medium & narrow...this refers to the distance between the eye pieces & was provided to suit different individuals, the ones above indicate they are 'medium'. The piled arms logo may indicate BSA, but I'm not sure they were involved in optics at that time.

    Also, they have been marked with two 'Broad Arrow' stamps, one atop
    the other, which I understand means they were taken out of service
    for whatever reason. Still very cool though.........
