They are indeed a fine addition - especially on a windswept destroyers open bridge or in an open cockpit Swordfish.

When you think of what some of these old naval binoculars went through, it's amazing they're still around and usable. ;)

Niall, I have a B&S CF 41 without  spray shields and a Barr & CF 25 with spray shields. I think they were accessories, seen that my CF41 does not have fixing holes.

However I consider this accessory a mechanical marvel  :)

I think you're right Rodolfo - the spray shields give it away. ;)

Thank you Rodolfo, I'm going to take more pictures and prepare a question text. Maybe you can help with translation?

Uwe,
this, of course, is the Manufrance trade company
https://www.manufrance.fr/
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manufrance
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manufrance
Book:

It is most likely the binocular was made for them by some French, English or German maker.

Uli
