    They look no different from what was in use in the early 70's to be honest, but that doesn't mean to say they are not WW2.

    They used the same model wartime and into the early 1970s so anytime between then

    I would say post WW2 based on the fact that they have been whitened for walking out or parade purposes a fashion seen quite a lot on 1950S BDs and less so on late war BDs.
